rederic (2898) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 26, 2009
500ml can, bright yellow color, with a thick white head, fresh cut hay, with a light floral hop nose, with some pale malt, faint buttery, vanilla accents in the aroma follows through on a light-bodied palate with a mild wet grainy pale malt character with some light flowery hop citrusy, leafy, grassy notes, leading towards a watery, lingering citrusy hop bitternes finish.

probstblueribbon (2864) - 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??

GregClow (2853) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2010
Can from the LCBO. Very wan yellow-gold colour with a thin white head. Aroma is light, some grain and grass, perhaps a bit of citrus. Thin bodied with fairly low carbonation. Flavour of wet grain, cut grass, a bit of green apple, and not much else. Very quick finish. Thankfully, I got none of the "fish guts and wet dog" described by the previous rater, but it still ain’t all that.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 20, 2011
Canette 500ml. De couleur dorée-jaune et claire. Nez de grains de céréales sucrés, léger de houblon herbeux (herbes mouillées et notes de foin) avec des traces de légumes bouillis, de sirop de maïs, et de fruits (agrumes). Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture aux notes crémeuses. Notes fruitées (agrumes, pommes vertes sucrées) accompagné de traces de légumes bouillis lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de malt pâle et de céréales moyennement sucrés et aux petites traces rôties ainsi qu’avec des notes de sirop de maïs et des petites traces de butterscotch puis en finale l’on retrouve une très légère amertume de houblon herbeux (foin et herbes mouillées). Post-goût moyen-court, aux notes amères de houblon herbeux avec de faibles notes fruitées (pelures de pommes vertes).

Ontbeertaster (2308) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2011
Decent offering, this beer tastes quite grainy, no hops to speak of, this beer is ful of flavour for a pale lager and it harsh around the edges

Spab (2286) - 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.

Metalchopz (2207) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 16, 2011
This French organic brew pours a pale yellow colour with a slight haze to it. Its head is white, fluffy and foamy with decent retention and lace. Lots of tiny sediments are floating all around and carbonation is pretty light. Malty smell at first, followed by some hop, and then goes into a corn field. Typical organic taste, which I have never been a fan of, but hard to explain what it is. Still, malty and grassy with a crisp mouthfeel and medium-light bodied. Not bad at all, and not much more (expensive) than the regular Boris (here in Ontario). A pretty refreshing organic lager great for summer.

matt7215 (2155) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 16, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2012 500 ml can from the LCBO. pours a slightly hazed greenish yellow with a small white head that lingers and laces. the haze kills the appearance. pretty nice aroma. floral hops, grainy pale malts, soft and delicate. the flavour is equally solid. nice malt body with adequate hopping in flavour and bitterness. way better then i was expecting. ill buy this one again.

MrManning (2003) - 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.
