COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rich, well-balanced pilsner style lager. Its extra body gives it extra smoothness with only a fleeting, pleasant after-bitterness.

Canette 355ml. Couleur jaune pâle translucide, mousse blanche fugace. Arôme de maïs, céréales, un brin herbal. Goût de maïs, plus elle se réchauffe plus le goût devient étrange. Carbonatation moyenne, corps moyen faible.

Lite tasting beer. Not sure how to express the taste. It Is easy to drink... reminds me of a kokane.

Overall, this isn’t a very good beer. But what it does do is compliment just about anything you’re eating and it does so decently. Eating burgers? Chicken? Steak? Fish? It’s going to be good with that. Slightly bready at times, but it has this light bitterness that I find enjoyable come summer. The knock is the inconsistency of the final product; some batches feel almost greasy and this can detract from what is really an okay, drinkable Canadian mass market beer.

shorlin (640) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - MAY 12, 2014
Grainy aroma. Gold colour with a small head. Taste is very bland. Not a bad taste, but the finish is not very pleasant. Overall, not a good beer, but better than many mass pale lagers.

Golden yellow pour. Dusty straw nose. Nice medium mouthfeel but not a lot of complexity. Drink it ice cold on a hot day.

Mon patron qui paye la bière à Noël. Bon, c’est (peut-être) mieux que la Budweiser de la dernière fois? Ça se r’semble. C’est pâlotte, c’est pratiquement sans arôme et insipide en bouche. Même si je m’y attendait, ça surprend quand même une bière sans qualités. Mes collègues ont levé les sourcils de surprise et d’approbation. (943-201213)

Aroma: Some floural hop notes but very subtle, lots of carbonation in aroma. Not much else of noteTaste: very pale sweet malt notes that are slightly overpowered by hops. Finishes with some bitterness but mostly bland Appearance: very pale clwar gold body with a low retained head

Surprenamment fade. Aucune caractéristique notoire ne peut lui donner une quelconque personnalité. Sec. Une faible impression de goût de grain... Une légère amertume qui s’évanouit vite. Elle reste pas mauvaise, c’est sûr... Elle est du type "se boit facilement".

341 ml. bottle from Sleeman selections pack, thanks Kent! Pours a typical pale-lager yellow- instant wild carbonation is evident. Small head that dissipates rather quickly leaves minimal lacing on the glass. Aroma is malty- includes hints of apples and syrup- grainy as well. Taste consists of water, apples, hops, some wheat, yeast, vinegar. Hops remain on the palate as well as a faint lingering apple-malt taste. Carbonation is excessive and annoying. This beer is more bitter and does have more hops than Sleeman original draught, but it feels like they tried so hard making this a pilsener that they just gave up any creativity in terms of malt and grains. Not a true pilsener, but still beats some mass produced pale lagers.

’Classic’ style lager I thought would be bad, and was actually okay. Grainy, bready aroma, which is better than none at all, and light yellow color. Usual light corny taste, went well with wings and cost only 2 and change at the pub, where it went well with wings. Crisp and useful for drinking games.
