Thanks to jerc (I think) for this one. Pale golden pour with a fast fading head. The aroma is a little bit sweet and worty. Some definite DMS and a bit of lingering cloying character. There is a touch of honeyed sweetness. This tastes a whole lot like some African tropical lagers Iíve had - and thatís not a complement.

Nothing special here. pale yellow fizzy head, nose isnít bad smells like grass. Beer is refreshing but not much else. easy drinking slightly sweet with a touch of hops to calm it down. ok.....

had a can of this, yellow color smelled as others have said of creamed corn, with the flavor following through on the finish. might go down on a super hot day in the summer but not really that good.

[1232-20080328] 355mL can. Sweet flowers puking creamed corn aroma. Clear, light yellow brown body with quick white bubbles. More creamed corn in the flavour. Light body is smooth. Poor.

Can courtesy of Tupalev, thanks Jeff!- Shared with Matt7215 in the parking lot of The castle on king. Itís a great way to pass time till a place opens! Poured into the glass, a pale pale yellow and was topped with a short lived fizzy white cap. Nose of sugars and grains with creamed corn and paper. The flavour profile was sweet grains and corn with a bit of wet paper leading towards the finish. Despite the weird flavours, this was surprisingly not offensive, just sweet, grainy and boring. Thanks for the can Jeff!

Can shared with Mr Manning during the " WTF the Castle on King doesnt open till 3? Well, might as well have a tasting in the parking lot" tasting. a big thanks to Len for sharing this rare jem. pours pale yellow with a short lived fizzy white head. not much carbonation. aromas are sweet and vegetal with wet paper. flavours are overly sweet pale lager adjunt style maltiness, but hey at least I could taste it. this brew might have been better had it not been raining and cold outdoors in a parking lot but hey at least i got to have it. thanks Len! weíll have to do another tasting sometime, preferable indoors.

Can shared with HogTownHarry, blankboy, jerc, mabel & tupalev - courtesy of tupalev. Pale yellow gold. Aroma of stale malt, corn, and icing sugar. Thin body. Bland aroma with a fair bit of corn. Meh - not very good.

Can (355ml) shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- courtesy of tupalev. Pours a clear, very pale yellow with a small diminishing white head. Aroma of grain and corn. Watery flavour of caramel malt, grain and corn. Light to average bodied. Ehhh, mediocre at best, mostly poor though.

HogTownHarry (6131) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2008
Can (355ml). Shared with blankboy, GregClow, mabel, jerc and tupalev - tupalevís bottle. Hoo boy, this is gonna be awesome. Pale, flat-lookinig gold pour, no head - not appealing at all. Sweet and grassy aroma, vaguely corn-syrupy; clover-like sweet cheap grain taste with a lingering plastic character - watery, cheap, and harsh in the long afterlinger - if you want a knock-off, poorly made Tsing Tao, this is your beer. (and what make this "amber"?)

2008-03-28. Pale yellow body, tiny fading head. Strange aroma, weird wilted grains are a touch muted after the first pass. Odd fruity note is lightly sour/bitter, muddled. Average to thin palate. Meh. I canít believe I am finally sampling this after seeing them listed on various beer pages over the years. Can, shared by Tupalev

Can obtained from the small Markham, ON location of this Mississauga brewer. My understanding is that the brewer exists mainly to sell his Lager to Asian restaurants in the GTA. I am still a little confused as to the Markham/Mississauga thing, but I did confirm this is a microbrewery and not a brew your own place. Submitted a photo of the beer as well. Anyway the beer has a weird corn/soap aroma. Very pale yellow, really really light. Taste - is actually almost ok - sure lots of corn and really watery, but mouthfeel is refreshing and nicely carbonated and there is a pleasant grainy taste underneath it all. Weird, not great, but not offensive.
