2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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 CO˛ 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!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
2014-08-15. Crisp pale yellow body with a small white head fades. Aroma is sweet, with an earthy mushroom like character. Flavour is sweetish, simple pale malt. Average bodied palate, good carbonation. Pretty dull, but not terrible. Interesting to try. Bottle from NFLD via my parents

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy at 5am during the Canada vs. Sweden gold medal hockey game. Light yellow with an average white head, no lace. Light apple esters, thin grains, (rice?) watery.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle, shared by jercraigs CGBD 2014. Pretty well up there (or should I say down there?) with the worst of the macro Pale Lagers out there. Poured a pale light straw body with a minimal fizzy white head. Nose is cardboard, corn, straw, and maybe a touch of pale malt. The flavor is much the same, what little of it there is. Not convinced this is old, I just think the cardboard flavor is the natural taste of this. Light bodied and fizzy with a watery finish. Another awful Pale Lager, but it is a Province tick.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
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. I’m glad I finally got my tick for NFL but quite a bland beer at the end of the day.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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 isn’t bad but is kind of boring and nothing makes me want to keep drinking it.
