This strange Labatt brew is a bit uneven in just about every aspect. The color seemed to split from top to bottom like a black & tan, the top being solid gold, straw-like in color where as the bottom was a lighter diluted yellow, a small whiteish head about a finger high came out on top but said goodbye within a second. Smell is uneven as well, with a musty hop, lightly citrusy, and a real weird raw oatmeal quality that seemed to dart in one nostril and out the other. Taste is lightly floral hops, quite subdued in approach, it stands up with good sweetish caramel malts and some grains of bread floating lightly in the mix. Again, there seemed to be empty spots, and some odd mixing of flavors and textures that were just to light to get a good hold on.

Standard light yellow appearance, with a bit of a white head. A slightly stronger malt flavouring than most macro lagers. Worth checking out but probably not sticking with.

Pale straw pour. The aroma is loghtly grainy with a very faint grassy aroma as well. Light bodied - tending to watery. Simple pale lager - not bad as these things go. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2004 An average lager from Labatt’s. Very easy to drink in large quantities. Very clean and crisp.

Pretty standard macro lager. Bit maltier with a sort of odd mild bite to it at times. Average palate. Not unpleasant but not a whole lot going on either. Enjoyed as a groomsmen at the Blevins-Graham wedding.

12oz bottle, no date. Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of light corn and grain, spicy, earthy hops. The hops are very subtle. The taste is the same. Sharp carbonation, watery mouthfeel. A decent pale lager--which isn’t saying much.

341ml bottle pours a pale golded color with a finger and a half of white head that dissipates quickly leaving no lacing on the glass. Aroma is light malts and grassy hops. Taste is light malt sweet and clean hoppy bitter finish. Standard macro lager.
