Draft in Whistler, Canada. Golden yellow with an average white head. I had expected more, and I don’t know why. Hoppy aroma, but flavor was not overwhelming memorable, and the aftertaste was a bit metallic.

Yellow with white head, fully diminishing. No lacings. Aroma and flavor light malty and hoppy. Light body, watery, lively carbonation.

Had several cans of this on British Airways while flying to London (March, 2005). Looks and smells like a low priced American standard. But it doesn’t have that awful overbearing corn sweetness that dominates most American beers. Light bitterness, goes down very smooth with a medium finish. Very refreshing.

Green bottle poured yellow with a good white head and heavy lacing.
Aroma was malty,spice and a bit skunky.
Flavor was malt, corn with a heavy metalic finish.
Great lacing, but not that good of a beer.

This beer does not offer a lot of flavor but personally I find it relaxing. It has a little of the skunkiness you find in Heineken but it isn’t as overt. It is definately one of the better mainstream commercial lagers on the market as it is a highly drinkable beer. However, it seems to lack a distinct taste that sets it apart from its competitors. In a few words: kind of bland but not offensive.

Can. Golden color with a decent white head. Good lacing. Aroma is a touch stale and lightly malty. Lighter bodied, well carbonated. Initial sweet tastes are quickly balanced by hops. Somewhat crisp. Decent

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sweet hop aroma. Clear yellow colour with poor head. Sweet malt flavour. Fizzy palate. Good summer BBQ beer when flavour is not important.

One of the best lagers I’ve had. Not too bitter, fresh flavor, can’t expect more from a standard lager. Great beer for a night out/on the couch, but not for tasting.

People call this wife-beater or some such unpleasant name. The common drink of tramps and low-lifes. Yet it has a classy advert on the TV. And the tag-line "Reasurringly Expensive". It’s a decent enough drink. Much cheaper in France where it seems to be regarded as the common and everyday beer that it is.

Thought this was Italian as I had it at an Italian dinner. Pretty good though it was slightly skunky in smell. It looked champainge like and tasted that way too. Very light but pleasent with a nice bubly body. Not earth shaking but good,
