It has a bit of charactor to it but at the same time it has the same smoothness I find in most moosehead products. Not much of an aroma. A little week for an ale but it is a well balanced beer. It tastes like most commerical lagers with an extra bitter that gives it a nice touch that makes it an ale.

Bottle: I last had this when Oland’s brewed it. Then it was on par with Okeefe’s extra old stock. This moosehead version has more ale character than most commercial east coast brews but still is too bland and unpronounced to be considered a premium ale. Poured a darker gold , small white cap vanished quickly.... weak lacing,... sweet aroma some grains. Weak malt backbone, soapy mouthfeel. Some sweet malts up front with some light apple tones and weak woody hops to balance, mid palate it goes thin and ends with a quick clean tasteless finish....a better commercial ale would be black pearl.

JoeMcPhee (8212) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2006
341 ml bottle. Pale golden beer topped by a thick off-white head. Faint aroma, pale malt, apple esters, light straw-like malt/hop nose. Flavour is a bit grainy, but otherwise fairly clean. Pale malt, light apple flavour. Very light earthy bitterness. Decent enough beer but not a great one.

jercraigs (7348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2005
Bottle. Golden yellow, small white head. Mild grainy aroma, not much aroma. Mild bitterness, touch of grainy malt and mild notes of fruit. Decent, fairly standard macro brew but slightly above average in terms of flavour quantity. Average palate.

Tessic (816) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2004
This ale pours a clear yellow with a bright white foamy head. Bread dough is the strongest scent presant. Slightly grassy notes. First taste was clean and almost tastless. A slight cardboard taste to it. Pretty watery. The palate is grassy with a very small amount of hops.

Last time I ordered one at a bar, the waiter laughed and pretended to dust off the bottle before serving it. Why Keith's is so popular while this one hardly sells is beyond me.

Ah, the good old days - standing around under trees in the winter, underage and in posession of a case of 10 penny. Drinking outside with your friends, cold, worried the cops would drive by, and wondering why the heck beer that is ice cold tastes so bad. A much better beer than most Moosehead products if you like malt and hops flavors. Adjunct flavor noticeable.

OKBeer (1168) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 7, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2005 Decent, with a bit more character than most Moosehead products. Light bitter and caramel aroma. Medium yellow colour, minimal white fizzy head. Flavour is a malt/hop balance, with an underlying bitterness accompanied by notes of honey sweetness.

Very good beer, can’t wait to have another one.
