Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 20, 2009
Canned. Poured clear, honey golden with a short cap of bright white head. The aroma picked up honey, corn syrup, and pale malts.. a hint of cleaner on the back.. syrupy sweet overall. The flavor found more of the corn and honey at the core, with lemon zest tartness and bitterness around tacky finish.. slightly metallic. Light-bodied and a bit rough on the palate.. drinkable, but not much more than that.

pintbypint (2696) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 4, 2007
355ml can. Pours dark straw colour with a fast fading white head. Aroma has some sweetish barley with lemon notes. Flavour is grainy, bready with lemon. Dry finish. Seemed to have a bit more body than your average pale lager. Fairly active and prickly carbonation.

Picked this up from the singles bin at Willow Park in Calgary. Can only. Had to call the number on the can to figure out the origin of this beer. The guy on the other end was very friendly and happy to answer my questions. I guess this was originally a beer brewed by Labatt in B.C. back in the ’40s and they’ve revived the label in import form. There are a few Wisconsin-born brews that are sneaking into Alberta without declaring their origins! Anyway, I thought this was a decent pale lager actually. Perhaps it was because my expectations were so low (being can-only), but I had this with dinner tonight and it was okay! Pale yellow, big head with medium retention. Grainy and faintly sweet, crisp palate with a bit of citrus in there (especially noticable against the alfredo pasta I was eating). Definitely not the worst of the can-only bunch.
