This was poured into a pint glass. I didn’t have a pilsener glass with me. From the can. The appearance was a mostly semi hazy yellow color with a soft amount of carbonation seen rising to fill a rapidly dieing head. Barely any lacing showed at all. The smell had sweet corn with no metallic aroma surrounding it. That’s a plus since a fair amount of canned AAL’s can have that off putting flavor to it. The taste was sweet and lead to a sweet smooth aftertaste and semi watery finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a good sessionability about it. It had a really nice carbonation about it. Overall, when one looks at this as an AAL, you realize that there is far worse on the market than this for the style. I’d take this over a Budweiser any day.

This shit pours transparent amber with a white head that retains a top. Aroma is corn, cut grass, crackers and booze. Tastes like shit...lots of evidence this beer was made for quick turnaround rather than quality. Sweet, cloying and boozy...the palate is gross too and the beer sticks in your mouth almost. Overall...what the fuck am I drinking?

Pale, some fusel, grainy, quite sweet, finish is rather cloying. Otherwise bland.

Better than their honey shit beer, because they left out the honey flavour. Has a metallic biscuit flavour, which is better than most lagers. Only drank to help my brother win a snowboard at the LC.

Masterkush7 (580) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 2, 2014
Taste has sweet malt up front, cornish sweetness, maybe a hint of honey, moving into grainy territory. Light malts in the finish, low to no bitterness here. Dry, just a bit of grain sweetness hanging on in the finish. not bad for a cheap beer.

Wow. Just wow, this is a fantastic beer! Some reasons below: 1- It’s cheap, however, maintains a higher quality than one would expect. 2- It’s slightly (by 1/2 percent) stronger than it’s competition so if you knit pick, then it really is a more economical buy than any other 5% beer at the same price or even slightly lower) 3- The best way to describe it’s taste is NOT "good" or "bad" or anything like that, I would say it is very palatable and it has an unique taste. This beer is produced by Pacific west brewing company in Prince George, BC. They make another brand of beer (Pacific Pilsner) as I’m sure a few others, but compared to PP this is definitely distinct. It’s not simply a re-branded generic beer... All I can say is, consider the price, the extra half percent, and buy it and try it and you’ll never want to buy anything else when you wanna drink on a budget!!!!

downy_dav69 (60) - Ladysmith, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 3, 2013
355 ml. can purchased in Ladysmith B.C. Pours dark yellow- almost orange. Head dissipates quickly. Metallic aroma with some hints of malt. Taste consists of malt, alcohol, grains, tin-metal, and some hints of caramel; heavily carbonated. Little to no hops. Nothing but notes of tin and a metallic taste on the palate. Horrible beer.

Very watery with a hint of alcohol. Also a great hint of black out due to unfiltered water added. Great price for the bums for a 5.5% Unbiased sorry
