1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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, it’s not as good as I thought it was the first time I reviewed it. I still like it much better than most of Quidi Vidi’s 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.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Review from August 2009
I poured this into my glass and had to look at it twice to make sure there was beer in it. Faint straw colour with a surprisingly good white head and nice sticky lacing. Light aroma of grass, sweetness and grains.. all very light. No skunk. The taste is mild but totally drinkable - sweet malts and graininess, some cooked carrot juice and that’s about it. It’s a decent mouth swishing beer but that all caught up tome but the time I finished it feeling gassed up. Slight bitterness - why do I keep buying these beers?

pours up a light straw yellow, with a fairly vigorous carbonation. head is bubbly, white and completely gone in a second. quite aromatically challenged, with touches of sweet malt and vegetables on the nose. the flavour doesn’t provide much more pleasant and retains the strange syrupy palate of Quidi Vidi’s other lagers.
I can’t belive they market this as their flagship, "premium" beer. why is this so expensive??

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear metallic golden beer; fine & dense white head. Dry malts/grains nose for an instant, then the ominous smell of rotting gras rises... lightstruck. First taste nothing but CO² fizziness, slightly sourish. Then dull grassy malts, again with sulphury decay notes. Very fizzy MF, and utterly empty. Why the Dickens did they need to ruin the icebergs’ purest water with just enough malt and hops to make catty lightstruck possible? Clear glass abomination. Thanks for hauling it in, nonetheless, Stef C!

Light lasting whit froth on plae gold. Almost no aroma. Sweet with a light grassy vegetable. A hint of alcohol at the finish may indicate that you don’t want it to warm up.

Thanks Derek for bringing back. Not as bad as suspected, it is watery. With an almost-watery colour and some lace and soapy head. A drop of hop, a bit more of malt. Not offensive in the least. It in fact could but drunk.

Bottle- Pours pale yellow from the clear bottle with a fizzy white cap. Nose of grains and weak yeast, pale malts and grassy hops. Tastes of sweet pale malts, straw, cooked veggies, some grassy hop bitterness. Thin and slightly sweet finish with a slight bitterness. Just ok.

Pours a very clear yellow colour, with a medium foamy white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Smell is pretty much non-existant. Flavour is pretty corny and a little vegetabley. Cabonation is pretty much right on, but it’s a bit watery. Not much special about this beer, really.
