1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
500ml can. Skunky smell, pale yellow colour. Standard macro type lager, some malt taste, but just bland really. Had to try it I guess.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml can. That big 2 litre bottle was not worth the risk for a substantial drainpour. Pours deep gold with a big white head. Pretty rich toasted malt a aroma. Medium sized lasting white head.
Down hill from here. Still, it isn’t that bad. Sweet caramel, cereal/grains. I can’t taste much in the hop department. Unbalanced.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
A bit of a disappointment. Darker gold body with average head consistant with this style.Aroma is can and slight malt. Bitter taste with a sort of metallic flavour as well. Light and crisp though, and I submit that this lager would be nicer on a really hot day as a refresher.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Canned. Slightly bitter. Akin to american macro lagers in appearance and taste, nothing to get exited over. Might go down well on a hot day.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours from a can a nice clear amber colour with a thick creamy head. The aroma on the other hand is way off. Very strong metal scent. Probably sat in the can for way to long. Hard to get around that but I did get a small scent of caramel and a doughy yeast scent. Slightly bitter with a moderate bitter finish. The medium palate was not very good. Turned very watery with a metallic/bitter taste.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tasted in Toronto from LCBO. Light yellow colour, lasting minimal head. Grainy / grassy scent/aroma. Nothing special here.

Again, too scared to get the BIG plastic 2 litre bottle and, luckily, the can was just enough. Thank you for the options... though I found this beer boring.
