(can) clear light yellow colour with small white head; skunky aroma, metallic, wet dog; watery palate; flavour - nothing of wheat ale, light and generic

473mL can poured golden into goblet with about a finger of white head and some lacing. Aroma is grain and floral hops. Taste is lightly sweet with some hop bitterness and a slightly peppery finish. Lightly carbonated and light bodied. Nicely balanced beer that goes down nice on a hot summer day.

Poured from can. Light golden colour with small head. Grain aroma with slight citrus. About the same for taste, but balanced nevertheless. Nothing really overpowering or offensive, just average.

Boring carbonated gold with decent head, but it will do the trick; yet I’d say it’s a lager from how it looked. Vague grain aroma. Flavour is a lager nothing-ness with just a hint of hops. This is more a cheap lager than even a bad wheat ale.

Came in the OCB Discovery Pack 9 at the LCBO, for summer 2011. Also noticed how it came in a 4-pack (also can) at the LCBO. I did see the words "light beer" hidden at the bottom of the can, and I kind of wondered how it would do with "wheat ale". Pours a clean light golden-yellow colour with a big white head that had decent retention and lacing all around. Grainy nose with some sweetness, kind of fruity with notes of oranges. All of this, pretty mild of course. Not sure what to make of the taste though. Not really wheaty, but still grainy, and has some type of hoppy bitterness (which I am not sure works). Not horrible, but some things are not working together. Still, better than I expected for a light beer.

Gold with a thin short lived head. Light grainy aroma with a hint of sourness. Grainy flvour. Acceptable by Canadian light beer standards. A bit of peppery hops in the finish.

There is something to be said for a well crafted beer. I am not saying anything great about this. New rule: Light beer is not beer. Light beer is a down grade on any style.
