Metalchopz (2207) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2011
Originally rated August 2006 when it was still made (and was one of the better light beers around). This is one of the best light beers from a macro. It pours a real golden colour (unlike those others that are pale yellow or almost transparent). The head is decent in size, white, slightly creamy, creates light lacing and leaves a coat over the brew. Carbonation is mild, but still a bit active from a few spots. The nose is also mild with malt and a touch of honey sweetness. Watery mouthfeel with slight stickiness. The taste is very light, with a tad of malt mixed in with soda water. Overall, quite refreshing and well-brewed for a light beer.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 16, 2008
That was a "not so bad" light. Watery and fizzy. But not so corny for that kind of beer. If I was forced to drink a light, maybe I’d take that one.

Corn in the nose, yellow, a tiny white head, corn flavour, light bodied, yikes.

TheJester (1790) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2006
"Darker" than most light beers. Foamy head that slowly dissipates. Smells like a Sleeman’s Lager, but taste isn’t quite there. Oily mouthfeel. Good for a light lager.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2006
Bottle- Pale yellow pour with a fizy shor tlived head. Faint aromas of tonic water and watery hops with a dash of malt. Almost tasteless. Club soda with some hops and a touch of sweetness. There’s no real point to this one. It scores its points for its ability to be completely inoffensive. Not again.

GarethYoung (1109) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - MAR 1, 2006
[bottle from peckhams] Yellow, fizzy, quickly dissipating head. Almost no aroma, thin body, watery finish.

radiomgb (2220) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2005
Bottle. Light golden-yellow in colour, fizzy non-lasting white head, no lace. Aroma was like a pack of skuks, grainy, slightly sweet. The flavour was grainy, some cheerios, very bland. Bitter dry mouthfeel, very light watery body, medium carbonation. Finishes fairly quick. Unremarkable and forgettable.

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 14, 2005
Pours light golden with a fizz, and momentary head. Faint cereal and floral aroma. Not much to speak of in the flavor, pretty much what one would expect, basically watered-down lager. Drinkable, slightly better than most macro light beers.

Radek Kliber (6368) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 29, 2004
Initial big head that had no chance too stay for more than few seconds . Pale gold . Aroma of plastic , and chew out pale malt . Thin, no front flavours, watery, just with very light malr nose. Non-present finish . Poor.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 30, 2004
Very sweet aroma. Very pale yellow clear body with thin white head that dissipates completely. Mildly sweet candy-like flavour. Hops are well-hidden. Watery mouthfeel. Bottle (clear).
