UPDATED: FEB 16, 2017 Pours a clear golden with a medium white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of corn, light grass and sweetish cereals. Taste is of lightly sweet cereals again and not really bitter. Body is medium, carbonation moderate. Not bad at all, Im totally getting the golden ale from this.

The best way I can describe this beer is cereal milk Its got very little aroma & looks like wee. The taste is very sweet but pleasant. It feels almost creamy in the mouth. Actually, not creamy. Skimmed milky. Like the ghost of creamy. Its mildly hoppy, not bitter as such but not at all sickly sweet either. It has obvious honey notes with orange tones & a few herbs. Overall, its a very easy drink. Goes down smooth & doesnt leave any residual gassiness or unpleasant after taste.

Bottle:   Thanks to Shaughn OKeefe for his namesake of a beer!   Piss like clarity, little head, wow, make that NO head nor lacing.   Smells like water.   Wow, if this is a Golden/Blonde, its one of the lightest I have ever had.   Holy Schnikes!   Thankfully its not grainy, and what is there is just a slight sweet grassy sort of malty/mealy flavor.   While I find nothing really off with this one, it doesnt have much to offer. &nbps Really light and boring.   A true lawnmower beer.   This deserves better than a 1 percentile... perhaps a 2?

VT (2527) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 31, 2012
710 ml bottle. Pours a clear straw with a short lasting white head, no lacing. Taste is cereal, corn syrup, nothing very interesting. Dry, herbal finish. Light bodied, watery mouthfeel. Weak carbonation. Cheap.

Originally rated December 2005. Holy smacks ! I thought this one was long gone. I thought it was now the Old Vienna. Then, in a pizza store in Montreal, I see it. Finally, I have found it here, in Gatineau, Quebec. It does list on the label that it is 5% ABV. Pours a golden colour with a good foamy-cream head with heavy retention and nice lacing. The aromas are of malt and alcohol. Watery mouthfeel, quite crisp. The taste is malty and bitter with grain and slight corn finish. A decent ale that is refreshing with a bitter edge and malt winning over corn. The original brewery (OKeefe) used to have a big share in the Quebec Nordiques... my favorite team. Bring em back !

Another day, another different Molson pale lager. Has an average gold body and an average white head. Aroma of burning garbage and rotten cardboard. Flavour is plain pale lager weakness with a wet finish. Not completely disgusting, but certainly boring.

341ml brown bottle. Very popular in Quebec City, OKeefe was the owner / sponsor of the Nordiques. Classic canadian blond ale, grainy, corn taste, no hops. Headache garantee.
