Bottle @ home, courtesy of BlackIPA. Fucken chinchillin motha fucka. Pours a bit hazy, light yellow appearance with a white head. Corny, lemon, sweet malty, bland, slight cleanser aroma. A bit twangy, candy corn, lemon, cracker, spritzy flavor that finishes pretty dry. Actually pretty fucken damn decent. [Update: note the distribution of ratings! Really fucken high variance I havent seen since Samuel Adams Triple Bock.]

Bon, quoi de mieux quune vieille taverne pour une bonne 50? Cest plotte et a ne mousse pas fort, du moins, elle ne reste pas en place. Un nez malt, sucr et mtallique. Un got pas des plus raffin, sans tre des plus coriaces non plus. a gratigne un peu au passage. Cest aussi minral avec une lgre amertume. Dire que cest la premire bire que jai bue et on trouvais quelle tait plus "forte" que les autres...(839-031013)

Bahumat (157) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 24, 2013
Lagery, watery. Inoffensive, not much hops. Good aroma, bready. Astringent midtongue mouthfeel. Overall, 7/20.

tompete (320) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2013
Pours a pale yellow with a thin fast disappearing head. Aroma is slight floral and the barest suggestion of spice. Flavour is very light with pale malts and a tiny hint of bitterness. The finish has something very off putting, almost sour. Strange because it was from a can and poured.

hellonearth (150) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 3, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2014 Gazifie souhait avec une lgre amertume sympathique. La couleur est jaune-dore. Got de crales (peut-tre mme de riz) et de sucre. Franchement ma prfre de toutes les bires commerciales (Labatt / Molson) disponibles au Qubec. Avec une petite aura de "bire de mononc des annes 70" qui pourrait faire de la 50 la Pabst Blue Ribbon du Qubec, en terme dimage.

Pale yellow, Blonde Ale, slight floral aroma, grass, pale malt and light bitterness. Havent had a 50 in many moons. Back in the late 80s you could find 50 Ale, OKeefes, Moosehead, Molson Golden, Grizzly and Glacier Bay at NJ Liquor Stores.

Canmoore (455) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2013
Typical macro brew, however slightly better than most macros. Pours a clear straw colour, with a fizzy white head. the aroma is of grass, and some light malts. The tasting notes include more grass, and some sweet malts, and a dry finish. Again, better than most macro brews. Probably the best macro that Labatt has made.

lesifflebiere (1817) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2013
paisse mousse neigeuse assez tenace ; couleur dore assez franche, mi-mince, chappement de bulles rgulier. En nez, houblon, sucre, mais aussi savon vaisselle. Petite amertume de houblon. Rappelle les old ales des annes 40. Plutt aqueuse, mais on dcle quand mme du sucre et quelques crales. Pas mauvaise, et mme presque audacieuse pour une commerciale, mais si elle marque des points sur sa saveur et son originalit relative, cela ne lempche pas dtre assez quelconque en gnral, et pas exactement invitante en nez. Correcte.

On tap at a bowling alley. I probably havent had this beer in more than 20 years. Was pleasantly surprised, especially when it was cold from tap. Had some fruity notes and maybe a very light hint of grassy hops. Nothing great, but if it always tastes like this I think it would be my go-to macro when choices are limited.
