Sample at Picaroon's Brewer's Bash. Just about the palest pale lager I've ever tried. Hardly any colour, aroma or taste, but it oddly works. Reminds me of putting snow in my mouth and letting it melt. I can see why people who favour strong stouts or IPAs would have no use for this beer, but it is bizarrely refreshing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had to try it, come on, itís made from iceberg water. Draft very light pale yellow. Plenty of champagne bubbles. Nose minimal sweet malt. Taste typical pale lager, but minimal skunk. Very light.

The only real novelty to this beer is the fact that it's made from an iceberg. There's nothing exceptional about it. Nothing remarkable, nothing worth having again. It is a Wonder bread beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Boutip (4738) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 22, 2012
Bottle: Poured a super light yellow color lager with a medium size bubbly head with light retention and some light lacing. Carbonation is quite strong with a spritzer kind of feel. Aroma of light adjunct and bland taste is pretty boring. Taste is also quite bland with light gross adjunct notes. Body is very light with Sprite-like carbonation. Iím glad I finally got my tick for NFL but quite a bland beer at the end of the day.

asheft (2518) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2012
[bottle] Weak hay aroma with some fresh, herbal noble hops and a touch of sweet base malt. Crystal clear pale straw under a quickly receding white, thin cover that does not form lace. Pleasant, though weak, almost crisp base malt and noble hops flavour. Boring but not offensive. Light to medium body, medium carbonation, lingering hops and sour finish.

rudolf (2341) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Pours a clear light yellow with a thin white head. Nose is light lemon and cereal notes with maybe a hint of herbal hops. Flavor follows with grain, light vegetal and overripe lemon. It isnít bad but is kind of boring and nothing makes me want to keep drinking it.

reebtogi (4214) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 21, 2012
341ml clear bottle pours a pale straw color with a finger of white head that settles to some thin spotty lacing. Aroma is very mild cereal grains with a slight trace of hops. Taste is much of the same. A light body with abundant carbonation. A clean finish, which is not saying much as there is very little flavor. Below average macro style lager.

Atheist_Peace (951) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 16, 2012
341ml blue bottle. Looks and smells likes apple juice. No real head. Sort of tastes like watered down apple juice....if anything. Very, very bland.

Poured a yellow straw color from a blue glass bottle (only reason I gave it a 2 for appearance). This beer really didnít taste too different from any of the other pale lagers from the big boys. It is kind of expensive for what it is. It poured with also no head and had very little aroma. I suppose this could be refreshing if served as cold as an iceberg on a hot day.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2011 After becoming more beer aware, I now realize I was a bit to lenient on this product mainly because it was a local product. To be honest, itís not as good as I thought it was the first time I reviewed it. I still like it much better than most of Quidi Vidiís other products though. Aroma: slight smell of corn (meh), Pours light urine color witbh a quick evaporating head, slightly sweet taste with a tweet aftertase. Not too offensive, but not overly great either.
