This blonde poured a clear, light yellow colour with a bright white, frothy head. Scents include eggs, wood and hay. First swig was thin and distantly malty with a little fruit in the distant background. Finish was thin with light grape flavours.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Presents well, great colour and solid head. Has a promising flavour which fades quickly and disappointingly.

Bière blonde de 5 % d’alcool. Elle possède un léger col mousseux au versement. On sent même un odorat amer. Elle possède un goût de citron et de pamplemousse en finale. Correcte !!

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Lame and less Rickards than the other brews. This one doesn’t try to straddle the divide between something like Coors Light and a great beer. It just hangs out on the lame side of mediocrity.

33 cl bottle, Winnipeg, MB, Canada. Yellow-golden colour, thick foamy head with very active looking carbonation. Mild earthy aroma, bready with some floral. Somewhat soapy taste, then faint bubblegum and even fainter vanilla on the finish. Better than I expected.

On tap, somewhere in one ofthe airports at some poin on my trip home from the maritimes. How do you turn a six hour flight into a fourteen hour marathon stopover odyssey? Book on points with Air Crapada! Anyway, I thought this was going to be a Molson Canadian clone that I’d have to choke down, but it was actually okay. The overly sweet adjuncty pale malts are still here, but there is actually some grassy hops in here, faint but present nonetheless. Not aweful, but not something I will be returning to either. A barely-there pilsener.
