DuffMan (10072) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 19, 2008
Clear straw gold, brief white head that vanishes completely after about a minute. Sweet grainy aroma, same on the palate. Unremarkable at best.

HogTownHarry (6566) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 1, 2007
Bottle (341ml). Courtesy of Oakbluff. Looks like what it is - pale slightly hazy gold, some bubbles, average fizzy white small head. Mild aroma of corn, pvc and - I guess - weeds. Tastes like dead straw soaked in sugar water in a big blue plastic barrel, then carbonated - sweet, cheap grain, garden hose harshness in the finish. Watery, fizzy, quick-finishing with a harsh aftertaste - another boring semi-cheap Canuck PaLager. Yay

reebtogi (6149) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 10, 2012
341ml bottle pours a pale straw color with a small white head that settles to leave no lacing. Aroma is grainy and grassy. Taste is grainy malt sweetness with a lingering grassy hop bitterness which is not too pleasant. Below average lager and not recommended.

northropfrye (3443) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 2, 2011
Bottle. Nothing too spectacular here, a pretty typical pale lager. The only note-worthy element here is a slightly sweet malty flavour.

cards04 (2764) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 17, 2013
Pours a pale yellow - nice and bubbly on the tongue. Aromas of apple and butter. Similar flavours. Goes down smooth, though. Good enough swill to wash down burgers and hotdogs.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2002
Golden yellow colour, some carbonation, no head, has an off wheat-corn taste to it.

bulldogops (2490) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 3, 2009
Bottle. 5%. Clear yellow pour, with a hardly existant white head. Aroma is sweet fruits (apples) and grains. Taste is pretty grainy, with nothing remarkable on the finish. Almost a dry champagney feeling mixed into a pale lager. Strange.

piscator34 (2408) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAR 5, 2004
I'm embarassed to say that this beer is made in my home town. The "Two Rivers" name refers to the Red and Assiniboine rivers which cross eachother in downtown Winnipeg. The beer is a deeper gold colour than most macro American Standards. It doesn't really smell like anything, but it tastes like sweet corn water. Meduim carbonation, and no hop taste at all. YUCK! One to avoid.

Savvy1982 (1706) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 23, 2012
Brown plastic 710mL pop bottle, this cant help but be awesome. Pours clear yellow, thin white head, which immediately dissipates, no lacing. Nose is conspicuously absent, with some vague grain and sour fruit. Flavours of cream, popcorn, wow this kinda tastes like onion dip. A crime against humanity.

Dont know why this is listed as retired - they still make it in both bottles and on tap at a few places. Ive had this on tap a few times at Cousins in Winnipeg. Not the worst lager, drinkable but pretty unremarkable. Plain, boring, a little sweet. Tastes remarkably like Fort Garrys pilsner... Hmm.
