2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can, from High Spirits in Cleethorpes. Gold, good lasting white head and moderate condition. Faint malty nose with some metallic notes and a hint of almond as it warms. Initially soft in the mouth with a developing nuttiness and a building hop bitterness that dominates the finish, although some fruitiness shines through.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Looks like your average, everyday golden lager. The aroma, unfortunately, doesn’t even make an average grade, offering unpleasant notes of rain water and steel. Some mild, sugary sweetness and malt exists in the flavour, but overall this is a very meek beer. Not recommended.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
An orange beer with a lazing white head. The aroma is sweet malty with some hints of hops, while the flavor is plainly sweet malty - hard to pick up the hops.
Earlier Rating: 11/1/2004 Total Score: 2.5
A golden beer with a fine white head. The aroma is simply sweet malty. The flavor is sweet malty, but with hints of sourness from brewing cereal as well as caramel. The stronger alcohol content than an average pilsener is recognizable without being too much. The brewing cereal draws it slightly down from the average pilsener.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tasted in Toronto. Obtained from LCBO. Tasted in dimpled mug. Appearance is medium yellow, possibly golden. Thin white head lasts for only seconds, before subsiding into a performance of nothingness. Grainy / grassy aroma with hints of sugary sweetness. Flavour is malty, but thin and ends with a definitive sickly bitterness.

Canned, which to be fair doesn’t give the beer much of a chance but either way you look at it, this beer was not going to be top of the pops.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Grainy, bready, toasty, cereal malt aroma with some lightly grassy, spicy hops. Corn-like DMS becomes more apparent as it warms. Clear deep golden body is topped by a low but lasting, fizzy white head that eventually recedes to ring. Cereal malt flavour is sweet and herbal with very light bitterness. As with the aroma, DMS is more apparent towards the end of the drink. Light body with somewhat watery texture and strong carbonation. Tumbler. Fridge temperature. Bottle (BB 160706, LCBO, Oct-05).
