BiereLuc (1158) - Montréal, Quebec, - FEB 15, 2013
Yeux : Pâle, limpide et d’un jaune qui fait pratiquement la marque de toutes les bières de Sleeman à quelques «microteintes » près. La mousse est abondante et relativement épaisse pour une bière de ce genre. Nez : Fine odeur qui balance entre des illusions de houblons et des rêves de sucres. Un peu de citron nous monte aux narines, mais on évite la moufette! Bouche : Plutôt mince. Sans trop d’élaboration, la Draught trouve son équilibre entre un semblant d’amertume et un fond céréalier agréable sur les papilles. Gorge : Les sensations buccales s’étendent dans l’œsophage en laissant un arrière-goût plus amer que celui décelé en bouche. L’alcool est désormais perceptible, mais sans plus. Verdict : Désaltérante (parce qu’elle contient de l’eau, eh), mais loin d’être unique. Elle rivalise assez bien avec la Cream ale et la Silver Creek de Sleeman. Pour une soirée entre amis sans complexe, ça va. Pour l’exotisme, on repassera.

Much prefer a Labbat Blue or Molson Canadian. Better than the worst ones I’ve had, but really nothing to like - I just hate it less as it was short of offensive.

Very neutral and simple beer, good cold, but loses drinkability as temperature rises. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet caramel aroma. Pours a light golden colour. Sweet taste with no distinct bitterness.Light body with a thin texture. Lots of fizz. Not bad for a big brewery. Still not something I’d buy again.

BreWedge (400) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2015
341 ml bottle. Pours a clear light gold with a shirt lived white head. Aromas are faint but got a little sweet malt. Tastes of light toffee and biscuit. Light body, medium carbonation, medium grain finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Not as good as their cream ale but not bad at all. Considering Sleeman is one of bigger breweries they make some good beers. Color is golden crisp, with average white head that disperses. nothing special or new, just regular lager. Crisp and smooth at cost of bit of taste.

deyholla (8355) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Can. Pours a clear pale yellow with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has sweet grain, straw and a slight corn note. Flavor has a combination of corn and straw with a touch of sweet grains.

BeerAndPonies (119) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - APR 14, 2015
Single 355 ml can from Sobeys Liquor, served in a straight-sided chalice.. Pours a bright golden amber with fine carbonation and an off-white cap that crackles and quickly vanishes, leaving spots of lace. Aroma: lightly sweet malts; flavor: even less-sweet malts, accompanied by a nice, light bitter bite. Little bit of bitey carbonation on the tongue; thin-bodied and finishes dry and crisply. A more than acceptable light lager...pretty damn good, I’d say.

500 ml can (with free TALL BOY Koozie) Does not smell like much. Pours a clear golden colour. Very little head. Taste is smooth and refreshing. No aftertaste. Plenty of carbonation and silky smooth on the tongue. Overall you will not be disappointed. MB

Light malts, and over ripe corn, dominate the aromas and tastes of this mildly drinkable, in an absolute pinch, beer.

Une blonde limpide à la mousse paresseuse. On aurait dit que ça sent la même chose que la précédente (Light); sirop, malt, maïs. Donc, on disait: en bouche aussi ça a le même goût. Effervescence et minéralité. Ça picote sur la langue. Y’a un aspect sucré et/ou fruité et/ou acidulé. Aucun intérêt. (1306-231014)
