Looks lighter and flater than it really is. Overall not a bad economy lager. Decent aroma, taste while leaving a fresh crispness on your palate. What else on the canadian market has a better value than a buck eighty a pint! All around decent.

even when i’d drink this beer in college because it was the cheapest beer to get drunk on, i never actually believed it was any good! drinkable because it’s almost water."

This is my go to cheap beer. Rating might be a little skewed based on price. It is the best beer you can get on the absolute low price scale.

Hipster cheapie. Flaccid nothing to it but gets you the buzz. A perfect Bronson when on special and local joint. Only do it with the peeps. Otherwise the snobs will shank you. Again just grain n H2O

Can’t expect much from a beer that comes in at under a buck a bottle. Poured into a pint glass from a 12oz bottle. Smells kinda skunkay and has a small white head until it disappeared almost instantly. Color is the same as a morning piss from drinking pbr’s all day and night. Tastes like beer. Like plain old beer. Leaves the after taste of a Willy Nelson concert. Great on a hot summer day. Awesome beer for its price.

Whadddup. PBR pours gold, white skunky head. Aroma is rust, must, crust, and dust. Flavor is reminiscent of a Midwest cornfield, yesteryear, perhaps a throwback Thursday. Session this shizzle with pride. So mediocre it's scary.

Yup, drinking a blue ribbon. Clear golden. Corny, sweet grain, slightly skunk. It's the stuff that headaches are made of.

Lukaduke (2243) - Portland, Maine, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Drank by the bottle at Charlie Hunter concert... 5 bucks for a pbr bottle and a shot of bulleit bourbon. Light crisp focused flavor. Balanced easy to drink. Nice bready backbone, straw, grassy bitterness. Actually quite enjoyed these ice cold. Little underlying sweetness that kept me from loving it but will take over BMC anyday.

Not really much to say about this one. Pours clear gold with medium white top. Taste is kind of sweet, corn and hay, nothing too special, kind of watery. I guess an ok beer for casual, cheap drinking but not my choice.
