2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle my friend brought back from Quebec. Not much to write. It’s your average macro, but with a sweeter flavour which makes it more interesting to sip on than say, Alexander Keith’s sorry excuse for a beer. One of the few poorly made lagers that I wouldn’t mind drinking.

Tap@Resto-Bistro Saint-James, Quebec City. Golden beer with a light head. The aroma is sour and chemically, and the flavour is fruity, sour and yeasty (tastes slightly weird). Overall a very disappointing beer.

Pas un amateur de lager blonde... mais deja meilleur que bud, molson, coors ou labatt. Meilleur rapport de prix que c est derniere aussi.
I m not a blond lager lover... still, its better than any bud, molson, coors or labatt, and even cheaper than these.

431ml bottle bought in Montreal. Straw coloured with a ring of white head; malty aroma; flavour is also malty and slightly sweet with oak and vanilla notes; there’s a short burst of bitterness floowed by a sweet and sticky finish. A nice blonde style beer.

I had this beer two ways: once plain and once with a blend with "Sommer: L’Amer Alsacien" (www.amersommer.com) an apertif additive for beers. You could add most anything to this beer from the world of liquors and apertifs and have it come out better than the base beer. It’s a lager, from Canada, and it supplies no argument for visiting our fair neighbor to the north. (at Mondial de la Biere, 2008, Montreal)

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
En bouteille. Robe blonde dorée, mince collet voire inexistant. Arômes légers de malt et de fruits. En bouche, elle est légèrement pétillante, plutôt aqueuse. Superbe pour un après-midi au soleil mais plutôt décevante pour les amateurs de bière au goût différent.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle-This pours golden with a diminishing white fizz. Slightly malt fruity nose at first, with honey and citric notes and a bit of grass/flowers. Flavour is lemony sweetness, floral, some grassy flavours towards the finish. Spritzy but clean finish. This is a well made all malt lager, and I’d be happy if I could get it here. All things considered, not bad for the $1.15 I paid for it.

Initially aromas of soft fruit (even faintly bananas) are found after the pour, but the overall profile is that of a standard macro pale-lager. Not bad, a solid average.

341 ml bottle from Metro Joanette in Verdun, QC (December 2006) consumed a bit above fridge temperature from a Christoffel glass. Somewhat fizzy clear pale gold body with moderate-large quick-dying white head....grainy nose with faint hints of DMS, corn, honey, a touch of grass on the second nosing.....clean, smooth and quite bland with just a touch of pale malt sweetness, very little if any hop profile until the extreme finish which does offer the lightest whisper of grassy-floral bitterness and acidity....moderate to high, fairly natural-seeming carbonation though the near-absence of malts near the finish accents the fizz and makes this feel rather soda-like. All in all it’s not at all bad for what it is, but I can’t really say I like it or that I would be all that excited to find this instead of a Molson product at a show or sporting event.
