2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled sample. Dark yellow in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas are of sulfur, earthy hops, and sticky pilsner malt. Flavors are of candy-like pilsner malt and muddy roses, with a bit of minerality on the finish. Medium bodied. Somewhat akin to a slightly cleaner tasting Molson Canadian. Not good overall.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Presented in a frosty glass. Initial smell was of clean glass that scented of dishwasher. No head, no lacing, just beer. Orange color with citrus hints. Manitoba grown ingredients and a valiant attempt at keeping it local. I would encourage mass consumption to encourage more local breweries.

Bottle given to me by my brother. Pours an am bearish hue, fluffy white head that dies to a ring with a thin film. No lacing. Nose is a-typical lagers, sweet, taste that is bitter initially, then dies to malt.

Poured from 473mL can. Clear, golden yellow orange with dissipating white head to nothing. Grainy malt aroma with mild funk. Slight sweet grain malt. A tad bit watery, but not bad for a lager.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
From my dear brother: Pours light orange with barely any head. Aroma is lightly bready, sweet malts. Taste is a slightly sweet lager. This is certainly not impressive. Nothing offensive, but hardly anything to write home about.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2013 Tried this beer the instant it was released. Had such an unfavourable impression of it that I decided not to review/rate it until later.
8/9 months later I had the chance to try this again.
The best thing about this beer is the aroma; slightly bready, very yeasty and perhaps with a hint of banana or clove.
Initital taste is fat, buttery sweetness (diacetyl?), punctuated by a thin metallic hop bit. Noble hops? Quite reminiscent of a mass market European lager (DAB?). Quickly fading taste which finishes with a faint bitterness.
Not a bad beer, but very bland, indistinct and sadly forgettable. .
The fact that all of the ingredients are grown by the brand owner (and they contract brew out?) is not enough to recommend it and certainly does not justify the price.
Drink this rather than Labatt’s.
