Pours a very clear golden with a thin white veil on top that leaves low lacing. Nose is of corn for the most part with some light sweet barley in the back. Taste is lightly sweet and lightly bitter, could be crisper. Moderate body, moderate carbonation. Overall I assume that the recipe has changed since they were acquired by Molson a few years ago looking at the other ratings. As of now this is far from convincing. Better than most macro options but really not in the same game/league as the craft equivalents. cmacklin (1242) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 20, 2016
On tap. Pours a clear amber with a small, off-white head that laces. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, toasted grain, honey and bread. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, bread, toasted grain, honey and grass with a dry, mildly bitter finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. A pretty solid lager.

341 ml bottle with screw crown cap bought at CitySuper in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.
Clear amber colour; Less than one-quarter finger head with residual soapy white foam which fades in 10 seconds; Fair sticky lacing with barely notable slight carbonation; Quite pungent aroma of Lager malt, with strong caramel, grains, very light cardboard, strong floral, sugar, bread, light lemon and light grass; Mid to light sweet taste of fair Amber malt, with barley grains, caramel, floral, molasses, light bread, lemon, Close to medium bitter hops and grass; Mid to light body. Quite Slick palate; Mouth Feel is fair maltyness in a fairly thin but slick background. Strong Amber characters with fairly Bock-ish, strong caramel and grains. Strong floral and notable but restrained sweetness. Good lemon to round. Pretty good!... Hoppiness is strong floral, light lemon and light grass in nose, and strong er in taste; Bitterness is medium for a lasting, astringent sweet-bitter finish; Fairly dry after taste. Floral, sweet and quite bitter to mouth.
Comments: The caramel element is strong and quite pleasing in its aroma, as well as the standout Amber Bock-ish taste. Maybe it’s trying too hard to be a Czech Lager (Polotmavý maybe?), its body is thin and there’s less than impressive grainy taste. Okay to enjoy if I don’t have to pay for the imported price, that is.
Jaune-cuivre avec une petite mousse. Arômes discrets de céréales. Au goût, pain, céréales (avoine, riz), miel et un soupçon d’amertume. Bien effervescente. Très quelconque, en fait. À la première gorgée, cependant, drôle de sentiment : souvenirs des quelques lapées de O’Keefe à mon père que je prenais du bout des lèvres à 8 ans... Ce qui vient étiqueter cette bière au fer rouge avec les lettres ’old school’... alex_leit (4806) - Minsk, BELARUS - APR 4, 2016

Pours medium brown with a red tint and off white head. Malt, yeast and a musky aroma. Taste of malt , bread and a bit of carmel. Drinkable but that’s about it. Franckg (1778) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 28, 2016
Robe jaunâtre claire avec un mince col de mousse blanc. Arômes de malt amer, houblons francs épicés, vieilles oranges. En bouche, ça goûte le vieux. Malt, houblons âcres, vieux citron et orange. Carbonatation trop élevée lors des premières gorgées. Boff bjakk (798) - Skagafjordur, ICELAND - JAN 19, 2016

0.473 tap. Clear, brown color with a reddish tinge and a small, white head. Aroma of pale malts, a touch of maple, yeasts, and a bit of skunky fragrances. Taste is delicate abd malty sweet. Light body, slick texture, and an average carbonation. Finish is very much like maple syrup, kudos for the quality. Overall not a bad beer, nice maple touch.
