12oz bottle: appearance is golden brown with minimal white head, aroma of stale malt, flavor is slightly malty and very over carbonated. Lubiere (14126) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2009
A golden lager with a thick receeding white head. Light and grassy adjunct and malt aroma. In mouth, a lightly chalked malt with light grassy hops. Light bodied but refreshing on a scorcher like today. Bottle from LCBO, BB Dec. 2009. Papillon (416) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2009
355 mL Bottle. Yellow body with a thin white head settling to a film and ring around the glass, completely vanishing after several minutes. Aroma mostly sweet corn and grass with a very slight note of vegetables as would be experienced at a farmer’s market and a bit of breadiness to it. Corn and corn husk dominate in the flavor along with some light malt. Corn husk dominates in the aftertaste. The finish reminds me of a fresh vegetable salad, interesting in its own way. I can see drinking this on a Caribbean vacation but otherwise, my hard-earned beer money can stay in the bank. presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 3, 2009
Bottle BB4 Feb 2010. Gold with a thin head and micro-bubbles. Sweet corn and grass aroma. I’m also picking up cookies and bread but in a funky kind of scent. I could see drinking this daily in the Caribean but it would never replace my IPAs or malty beers at home. Bready malt with some light peppery hops. A bit of an earthy quality to the flavour.

Bottle: Oh, I can’t wait for this. I’m relaxing with some Roger Clyne DVDs and it seemed the right time to suck on another in the never-ending series of crappy pale lagers. Pours pale, straw yellow with lifeless white bubbles atop, failing in a life effort to become head. Sad. Aroma is very grainy, corn, sweet. Flavour is grainy, corn, sweet. I imagine in Barbados this is great because you’re in the f’n Barbados, but I’m on my couch. So fail.

Drank from the lovely plastic bottle this stuff comes in! Aroma was of bitter hops, and it really was the archtypical 4.7% lager. Mouthfeel, taste, and finish are acceptable. Elkas (213) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 13, 2009
355ml bottle from the LCBO. Very light in colour and flavour. Not very good. Boutip (6433) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2009
Bottle: Poured a clear deep golden color lager with a large foamy white head with good retention and no lacing. Aroma of adjunct with lightly sweet malt. Taste is also dominated by some sweet adjunct with a pretty bland taste overall. Another world lager that is probably better if chugged on a beach in Barbados. Eructoblaster (4308) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2009
Bottle - 355ml. Golden body with heavy carbonation and a thin white bubbly head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma with some bready hints. Taste carries bad metallic notes and ends with a short bitter finish. Boring.
