I bought this bottle from the brewery. There’s not a lot of head from a pour into a pilsner glass. It’s pale gold and decently carbonated and a run of the mill aroma. It’s a bit grassy and has some sweetness from the malt. There’s not much of an aftertaste. Overall, it’s drinkable but generic and leaves little impression.

Not very good at all. Comparable to budweiser and other generic garbage. Don’t even bother

Bottle, pours a nice head, the taste is pretty basic, overall its not bad, not much life

Bottle from the brewery. Light golden with a still body and no head. Aroma of straw, wet cardboard and icing sugar. Very low carbonation, almost flat. Generic mainstream lager flavour - too-sweet sugary malt, wet hay, light grassy hops. Poor.

[2593-20091118] 341mL bottle. Grainy haystack and generic wet straw aroma. Clear, yellow body with a quick foamy white body. More generic straw grain yeast flavour. Medium body. Boring.

Bottle (341ml) courtesy of tupalev. Pours a clear bubbly pale gold with a small diminishing white head. Mild aroma of biscuity malt, light grassy hops and some sugary sweetness. Flavour of grain, light grassy hops and some mild sugary sweetness. Average bodied. A typical average Ontario Lager.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2009
Bottle from the brewery/ Light yellow with a ton of bubbles - seems very carbonated. Head goes away very quickly. Mild aroma - some light malt and a hop or two. Taste - ok. Very grainy. Mouthfeel over carbonated. Not bad really, bordering on watery, grainy taste is nice enough. The poorest of the 3 I have had from the cold crown though.

Drank from bottle. Malty aroma with a bit of ginger, barley (or is that just malt?) and toasted caramel. Flavour has loads of bread and grain. Some sweetness comes from the malts. Becomes almost creamy in the mouth, medium bodied. Very little aftertaste -- leaves the mouth feeling clean.

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2008
Bottle from brewery-Pours a deep golden with a short lived white fizz, but there’s a lot of lace. Fresh, floral hop nose, spices, lemons and lime zest, biscuit and cookie. The flavour profile is a leafy green hop flavour, grass with lemon and biscuit cookie at the finish. Finishes bitter and crisp. Well made, and at the price, there’s no reason why this wouldn’t be a mainstay for me.

Bottle (341ml). Via trade with Matt7215. Very pale clear gold, large white head that runs away quickly - looks kind of dead in the glass. Pretty decent aroma - light cereal grain oiliness and soft grassy hops - some biscuit - yeast? Tastes the same - sweeter, only lightly bitter, medium-quick finish and a bit chewy, lightly carbonated, nice and grainy - a decent version of what tastes like a classic Canadian brew, with that Euro hop character added in. Very decent.
