3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2005 I don’t know what the bad fuss is, this is not "U" and it is certainly a very refreshing session beer, very simply made in the way things were before Macro meant Crappo. I think it is far better than anything Mr. Sleeman puts his own name on. It has a tight punchy pleasing maltiness and nice carbonation that make it very fresh and natural tasting, quite enjoyable cold from the bottle while you are building a snowman or washing your car. Points for the classic stubby bottle too.

Poured yellow with a big bubbled white head that dissipated into absolutely nothing...aroma is a little skunky, with lots of corn and dough...taste is sweet with a little bit of hoppy bitterness toward the back...interesting indeed, but not good...

Botlle. Golden yellow with very little head. Nose is wheat, taste is a bit sweet. Nice palate, very smooth. Not bad, not distinguished.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Dark yellow colour with absolutely no head. Strong wheat/grain aroma, with some toasted whole wheat bread notes. Taste was actually much sweeter than I expected - this had more of a natural honey taste than any "honey" beer I’ve tried - much more successfully balanced as well. Mouthfeel was slightly syrupy. Perhaps not the best choice for the coldest night of the year (-37 Celsius wind-chill!!!!) but I could see how this would be refreshing in the summer. From my buddy Jay on his visit to Quebec.

Pours a medium amber gold clear under a medium size off white head. This beer has to have one of the most unpilsner like aromas and flavours of any pils I’ve ever tasted. Floral nectar and honey sweet cereal wheaty and mild yeast aroma. Soft creamy smooth quite low carb palate. Flavour is a combo of stale of candy sweet grainy malt and mild woody hops with a touch of citric sourdough. I didn’t mind it and my wife liked it.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear slightly darker golden coloured body with a good size white head that hung around for most of the journey. Soft aroma of orange and butter. Pleasant taste of citrus, a hint of a pilsener bite but finishes a tad sweet, grain flavours also make an appearance. I have been revisiting pilseners for the last couple of weeks but was unaware this was a pilsener when I purchased it. Rated it up as a beer but not as a pilsener.
