UPDATED: NOV 11, 2003 Draft. If I were a Canadian eager to prove my country is not "the 51st State," I'd be ashamed to see the maple leaf on this product. It's just all the worst aspects of the standard American "beer." Pale, pale colour--but that is what the style calls for, so a few points there. Plenty of adjunct to assure as little actual flavour as possible. Unless the malt and hops are so well balanced they cancel each other out, like matter and antimatter... nah. The description says "fruity character;" since when are corn and rice fruit? Re-rated I am forced to revise my rating upward a few notches upward, because while this beer smells bland and has no taste, I found another that smelled and tasted awful, due to a bad bottle.

34 cl bottle. Pours clear and golden yellow. Small white head. Aroma is grainy and grassy. Straw, light grassy. Cornish. Subdued sweet, grainy finish.

Bottle to glass. Transparent golden pour with white head. Not much scent. Taste has some apple in addition to the usual. Reminds me of sitting on an island in Canada.

Bottle from Beer Frog Spring Hill. Pours a clear straw yellow with a pillowy white head. Nose is bready malt with a mild and grassy bitterness - lots of floral with a mild fruit character. Light malt, light floral bitterness, and the mildest of fruity flavors in the back. Light in body and better than I thought it would be.

For a moment, I was impressed! This is a very crisp and well-balanced pilsener. Biscuit malt base with some floral and the ever so slight stone fruit character. Before I knew it the sixer had disappeared on me.

Bottle at Tartu College cafeteria, Toronto. Jeez that’s bad. Very pale fizzy yellow, sweet papery malts in aroma and flavour, soft to moderately crisp on the palate. Ugh. A rather typical - I guess I can now say that - cheap American-style PL. These things tend to have much more and better flavour in Europe as far as I’ve witnessed.

Skarecrow (745) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 24, 2017
330ml bottle Pale straw with good head and carbonation. Aroma is grainy/corn. Slight bitterness but thin with clean finish. OK lager for quaffing.

Poured from can into pint glass. Pours a very clear yellow with a fizzy head that disappears quickly, Aroma is light corn. slight bread taste, very watery, I’m a Hockey Fan so I wanted the can. Would drink if this was the only beer available.

11.5 oz bottle One of the twelve beers of Christmas 2016 The pale lager poured a clear gold color with a small head that quickly disappeared. There is no lacing. Labatt calls this beverage a Canadian Pilsener. The aroma is malty or bread like. I can not detect any hops. The lager has a light body with soft carbonation. The finish is sweet but clean. This is probably a good beer for watching ice hockey.

GTAEgeek (2217) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2016
Drunk from the 12 oz. bottle. The aroma is bubblegum, corn syrup, and bread dough. Sweet and syrupy, with only a touch of bitterness. Light body, with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. This is a fair lager.

AlainG (2248) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2016
Il fût un temps où on nous laissait croire que c’était une pilsner...Sans mousse aucune, la bière est jaune. Un nez de poussière, de foin, d’éther et de sirop de maïs/maltose. Y’a un goût quelconque. Sucre raffiné, saveurs métalliques et un alcool impropre. C’est aqueux. Ça se boit sans grimacer, c’est au moins ça. (1994-091016)
