2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can 500ml (export version, 4.6 ABV), pours clear yellow with tall long lasting white head. Aroma of lemony hops. Mouth feel is slightly creamy, gentle carbonation (too gentle). Taste is slightly sweet, very weak hoppy bitterness, and some mild hoppy sourness. Flavors of hops, slightly fruity and herbal, also some weak sweet malt. Some surprising spice tones (cloves?). Very light and crisp. Gentle and balanced, easy to drink. Flavors are nice but weak and slightly boring, but not to flat, pretty good for it’s style.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Golden-amber body has excellent clarity and is topped by a semi-durable head. Minimal lacing.
Decent, lightly sweet flavor and aroma. Seems to need more hops for balance.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
The beer starts grainy and slightly bitter. The mainpart is grainy, not very deep and bitter without aroma. The aftertaste is medium, boring-bitter with hints of grain.
Way-under-avarage Pale Lager. Boring and not very drinkable. --> 6/10/5/6

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly malty aroma, sort of like white bread.
Pours a clear golden colour with slight white frothy head. Lots of medium carbonation.
Slightly sweet taste with minimal other flavours.
Thin texture with medium carbonation, and a slighly sour finish.
Overall, light and boring with a bit of off flavours in the finish. Mediocre.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can - 500ml. Boring pale blond body with heavy carbonation and an average, fading white foamy head. Light malty/hoppy aroma with herbal hints. Taste is thin and carries bad metallic notes. Ends with a short, weird chemical/soapy finish. Bad stuff.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
500 ml can from LCBO. Super clear light golden colour. Muted aroma but shows hint of noble hops, cereal/grain and some hay. Fast taste profile with a sweet cereal taste and water apple juice like flavour. Terrible stuff.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml can, random find at LCBO, served cool in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear bright golden with a nice white foam.
Aroma: Pleasant, lightly fruity light malts, a little grassy hops, borders on a light Golden Ale with the fruitiness, OK.
Palate: Medium body, moderate carbonation.
Flav.: Cereals and grains, very light grassy hops, still a touch fruity, meh; dry with gentle bitterness and a fairly clean, slightly fruity light malt finish.
Another lacklustre lager from LCBO.
