2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
341 mL bottle. Nice colour for a lager, but just a film of head. Smells like candy. Weird, sweet taste. Ends really quickly, then leaves a weird, tinny + sweet aftertaste that sticks to your tongue. Weird.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle from the LCBO- Bottle from the LCBO. A deep golden pour topped with a frothy and long lived white cap. Nose of cooked vegetables, butter, some pale malts. Tastes of vegetables with sweet butter, some rancid stale pale malts. Not good at all. Awful.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
"Warning sign number one clear individually sold bottle, warning sign number two has the word export in the title, no good can come of these two things. Beer looks very good for a lager body seems to be yellowy dull gold and very clear with a very thick creamy half inch cap. Sticky lacing totally coating the sides of my glass I’ve never seen a lager do this before, ten minuets in and the half inch head is still there. Aroma is living up to the title of export loads of metallic sweet grains, this is way too sweet and has a very mild aroma it’s hard to detect, I’m even noticing some alcohol is this aroma why? How? On the first sip this seems way to sweet and almost fake tasting but still somehow drinkable. Lots of fakly sweet malts are in this but not even the smallest hint of hops can be noticed. Beer feels very full and smooth especially for a lager, it’s almost like drinking milk. There is a very out place watermelon flavor in the finish and my mouth is left with no after taste but I can tell I just drank something way to sweet. What a odd beer its drinkable but not good by any stretch but there is no way you could call this swill either, I’ll blame the crappiness on the clear bottle and the fact it’s called export. "

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Pours a bizarrely swirly foamy pale gold with a radiantly artificial-looking melted marshmallow cap which hangs on like dish foam. Unleashes a toxic vapor that is generously solvent-y like rotting bread or sour brie cheese, plus sour very wrong worty grains. Presents an unbecomingly harsh soapy palate with a bitterness like ear wax. Ahh tthe flavors... funny rotten grains and corn, some nice malty sweetness under this, and the general clangorous mess of grains, ivory soap, and badly-injured hops. Manages to be watery yet assertively bad tasting. I feel bad for this beer. What’s WITH the chemical smell?? UNFINISHABLE = unacceptable.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Poured a clear golden color with a white head. Smelled of cereal grain, a bit of caramel, and some husky grain. Watery mouth feel without a great deal of flavor other than dilute pale malt, subdued grass, and hay. Not very good.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bronze with a tidy lather of head. Unable to coax out an aroma--if anything, there may be a subdued lager hop. Easy lager flavor, very smooth, but not much to offer. Slight malt and clean grain profile merge with light, crisp lager hop. Inoffensive, but too weak tasting to garner much of a rating.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
7/9/08 On draught at FX McRory’s, Seattle, Wa. Aroma is Corny yet bready pils forward with light sourness and low noble hop bittering. Appearance is clear yellow with a well maintained white head and exceptional lacing. Flavor has high corny caramel sweetness, but not objectionable. hops have medium bittering with floral/sweet noble character (yes, it exists). Mouthfeel is light bodied with a medium/high carb texture and lingering finish. Overall, very easy drinking with great malt character that seem more similar to classic americal lagers, but this lacks any corn.
