Simple appearance with small head. Very light mist. Moderate yet sharp carbonation, which I like. Quite dry and with a bitter bite in the end. Simple malt profile but the bitterness makes good a lot actually. Better than expected. (At an English pub next to Gare Paris Montparnasse)

Metalchopz (2199) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2012
Originally rated March 2005. This premium lager pours a beautiful golden-amber colour, with a fat creamy head and very good retention. The lacing, as well, is thick and fat. Very nice for a lager. The scent is pretty malty with hints of corn (which is one the ingredients). The taste is smooth, with a slight bitterness and a corny finish. Carbonation is very lively. A 3mm layer coats the brew all the way down. Amazing ! Charles Wells products never seem to deceive me for low budget brews. Quite a pleasant drink, for just a plain lager. Premium... sorry.

Can. Pale and clear. Medium. A little watery. Inoffensive but nothing interesting.

Spab (2261) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2008
500 ml can. Pours a clear light orange/gold with very minimal white head. Mild nose of malt. Flavour of grain and corn with mild hops in the finish. Not dreadful but pretty bland.

Poured from can. Nice color, Nice frothy head. Clean tasting, but sort of average too. Wasn’t greatly impressed, but wasn’t bad either.

imdownthepub (9964) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2008
Tin, 500ml shared with Phil. Pale gold with white fizzed head. Thin, corny, cereal lager with metallic and cardboard notes. A little late citrus note, but this just emphasises how bad the rest is. Not good.

EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 27, 2008
Canette de 500 ml. La bière est de couleur dorée-cuivrée avec une mousse blanche modeste qui reste. Au nez on découvre des arômes de céréales fraîches, de miel et de houblon floral. En bouche le corps est mince-moyen avec une texture crémeuse et une effervescence moyenne. On goûte le grain une touche de miel et de houblon floral.

500ml can
5.0% ABV
I tried this beer on May 29, 2008 after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer pours a translucent pale golden yellow colour with a very thin white head. The aroma is grassy malt with a little bit of hops. The mouthfeel is crisp, medium bodied and medium carbonation. The flavour is very grassy.

ronco (6) - CANADA - MAY 6, 2008 does not count
Dark color with a sweet taste. Refreshing as it was easy taking a few gulps without a bitter aftertaste. Surprised by its smoothness and worth recommending.

Canette 500ml. De couleur dorée orangée et claire. Nez de houblon herbeux et aux petites notes terreuses, de grains de malt pâle avec des notes fruitées (agrumes) et de maïs sucré. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-bas et une texture légèrement crémeuse et aqueuse. Notes fruitées (agrumes) accompagné d’un léger goût de grains de malt pâle lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un moyen goût de maïs sucré avec des petites notes de biscuits (traces de rôti) parallèlement à un goût moyennement amer de houblon herbeux, légèrement floral et aux notes terreuses jusqu’en finale où l’on retrouve également de faibles notes métalliques. Post-goût moyen, moyen-léger amer de houblon herbeux aux notes florales ainsi que des notes métalliques et fruitées (zest d’agrumes).
