Not as vile as some would have it but it does certainly have a rather odd raw edge to it which sits in the face of its sweetish front. PAle and structurally fails to go the distance falling apart and offering little head or a developing flavour or structure over time. Roomspinning (3) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 10, 2009 does not count
Had this at a college party. Woke up three days later with my pants missing. Wretched aftertaste. Like sucking on a mouthful of old pennies seeped in dirty ditch water. Would definitely try again. Beerdedone (3401) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2006
Bottle. Pours yellow gold with a white head. Aroma of sweet malts, grain, and slight hoppiness. Flavor is sweet malts, grainy, and a slight bitter finish. Not a good brew, yet drinkable. DerWeg (1681) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2006
I have to rate this from memory, to honor a character Lager that was so good (when it was very fresh.) Distinctive wild hoppy/yeasty bouquet, sweetish malt base, medium pale and foggy/unfiltered in appearance. Drank very cleanly given how it looked, with subtle mingling aftertastes of mild bitterness and grapey fruit. I fricken loved this but it was too unusual for the pencil necks at head Office to grok. Amazing delicate summer beer made with a defiantly Craft ethic. boto (2210) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - OCT 27, 2002
A typical Canadian Macro. Nothing special.

Wow, this was atrocious. When it comes to bad beers, there are watery beers, and then there are just bad beers. This falls in the latter camp. dbutler4699 (13) - Elyria, Ohio, USA - DEC 3, 2000
It’s really unfair for me to rate this beer as I think I got a skunky six pack (there was dust on the bottles when I bought it). If what I experienced was really what Algonquin tastes like, I cannot recommend the experience.
