355ml can. Basic minhas ice beer, inoffensive to a point, cheaper than any rival in price. DuffMan (10667) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 24, 2011
May long weekend, opening up the lake with Parksy-- it’s malt likra time! I guess this is more of a pale lager, but it sure satisfies the shit-factor that I’m after in a canned lake beer. Urinal scented, tinny grainy -- another piece of shit from Minhas. TaktikMTL (7975) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 14, 2011

Aroma and flavor is sweetish corn/malts, an odd but expected off funk and tart finish. Not much in the way of flavor at all apart from the off funk. Patrickctenchi (6732) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 8, 2013
24 oz. can:
Slightly hazed gold with a frothy, off-white head.
Lemony-sweet grain malt aroma.
Ridiculously sweet flavor.
Sugary, corny, grain malt, aluminum.
Awful.... and OH! Look! Minhas had a hand in this....what a surprise...
Just bad, bad, bad...
I hope my $1.38 for this enables them to buy a helpful brewer’s guide or a can of neon spray paint to tag, "CLOSED" on the side of their building.....
Sorry, that’s harsh...but damn.....their stuff is terrible.

710ml supercan poured a pale straw color with a big white head that settled quickly and left virtually no lacing. Aroma is grain. Taste is sweet corn and an undesirable hoppy bitterness. A below average lager. heemer77 (5360) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUL 10, 2015
Can. Medium gold colored body with a barely perceptible white head. Nose is super sweet white cake like with hints of corn. This tastes like over sugared corn flakes with a green apple finish. It is a little bit metallic and just disgustingly sweet. The only difference between this and a malt liquor is the lack of a boozy bite. Bleh, this is horrendous. probstblueribbon (4088) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2010
710 MONSTER CAN from TBS, served cold in a tulip glass. Spab (4083) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2010
App.: Clear golden with a thin veil of white.
Aroma: Mainly acetone, acetyl and ass; honestly, these are the aromas...no poetic license for the sake of alliteration, gross sweetness, cereals, grains, malt liquor-esque BLECH.
Palate: Medium body and carbonation.
Flav.: Mercifully, less offensive than the nose; the defects persist, tempered by Sherry (is that a good thing??), a little more grain/cereal, still plenty awful; dry with an odd, cloying bitterness and a strangely fruity, problematic finish.
Among the worst beers I’ve ever rated and a very unwelcome addition to the Ontario beer scene. For shame, TBS and Minhas.
710 can from The Beer Store. Pours a light, bright yellow with moderate-sized white head that rapidly recedes to a little white scruff. Aroma in a word is cheap - harsh grains, sweet corn and some alcohol. Taste is equally uninspiring - sickly sweet corn, nasty grains, almost a little gasoline and a wet dog finish. Quite thin. Absolutely terrible. Metalchopz (3537) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - APR 25, 2013
Second cheap Ice beer today in cans (the other being the Keystone Ice). Pours a little more golden than the other. Head is way better as well - way more retention and some lacing everywhere. Aromas of malts, adjuncts and hints of honey. Again, better scent, but where this one goes wrong is the taste. Sweet malty mouth with some more adjuncts and then, the same club soda feel. So, a better looking beer, but the taste kind of does not sit well in the stomach. The Keystone is easier going down.
