Spab (3336) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 4, 2009
500 ml can from LCBO. Pours a clear light yellow gold with moderate white head. Grass/straw aroma, light hopiness. Flavour is light and refreshing with light grainy malts and grassy hoppiness. Light-mid body, decent crisp finish. Not a bad lager.

AWS9 (634) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2009
Smooth, toasty. Slightly astringent finish. Certainly a stepup from the monstrosity the original is.

robinvboyer (4118) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 26, 2009
grassy, wet hay aroma. Sme hops, but they are a little mute. Flavor is very grainy, and grassy. Meh, i wasnt too thrilled with this, its a gimmick, its the same as the regular boris.

Eructoblaster (3805) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 25, 2009
Can - 500ml. Pale blond body with heavy carbonation and a huge white foamy head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma with grassy and flowery hints. Taste is well balanced but it lacks complexity. It ends with a short bitter/herbal finish. This decent lager is a lot better than any other Boris beer I have tasted before.

fredthecat (319) - CANADA - SEP 22, 2009
soury, grain smell, its golden a little hazy extremely cerealy taste, like shreddies from a factory, even the aftertaste. feels average macro, maybe a little better, pretty neat for an unusual taste, organic i guess, and is pretty affordable. i would throw this in every now and then.

decimator (51) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2009
500ml can poured into a pint glass. Poured a clear pale yellow with a 1" head that did not last long. Good lacing. Mild aroma of sweet corn and grains. Tastes sweet with a bitter aftertaste. Good balance but a bit mild. Crisp mouthfeel but pretty average for a lager. It’s easy to drink because it doesn’t taste bad nor is it offensive. It’s just a little mild in color & aroma with decent flavor. Overall it’s a pretty decent Lager.

probstblueribbon (3701) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2009
500 ml can from LCBO, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear light golden with a fair white froth. Aroma: Light grain/cereal, a little wet hay, light, vague fruitiness, a little peppery, grassy hops. Palate: Medium body, soft carbonation. Flav.: Slightly sweet cereal/grain, a wee bit fruitier than the nose, a touch of alcohol, still a bit of light grassy/peppery hops; dry with a touch of bitterness.

Much better than expected. Organic, French and decent...who knew??

JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2009
500mL can from the LCBO. Pours a super pale yellow with a large frothy white head. The aroma is right off the bat semi-sour pale malts with a touch of tiny hops, and minor macro-ness but it’s actually not awful. Flavour somehow gets better as it warms. Starts out cold like a crappy macro lager (more in the North American macro style), but as it warmed I picked up decent notes of Pils malts and not much in the way of off flavours or anything that would suggest garbage ingredients. Minor hop presence in the aftertaste. This is far better than what I was expecting.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2009
500 ml can from the LCBO- Pours a deep yellow with a thin white cap. Leaves a bit of lace. Nose is quite grainy and grassy, with a bit of lemon and bread. Tastes sweet and grainy, of mild fruit, grassy hops. Pretty well balanced, and better than expected.
