3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Good Canadian style beer. good flavour, good appearance, good pallet, no bad aftertaste.
I did not like this beer at all. A very pale orangy-gold colour with very little head. The aroma is slightly skunky with a lot of off notes. The flavour was a mish-mash of malt, hop, and sour vegetables. A pretty poor effort for a light beer. Spab (4069) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2011
341 ml bottle (from dusty 6 pack at Crossroads LCBO... wonder how long this one has been sitting around). Pours a very lightly cloudy yellowish golden colour with thin white head. Aroma has lots of caramel malt, grains and a bit of sourness. Flavour has identical profile. Body is lightish but not too bad for 3.9%. So so but better than I’d anticipated. robinvboyer (4750) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2007
Another Ontario pale lager, Joy!!
very vegetal, corny aroma. Flavour is much of the same. Not really any hops to speak of, slight maltiness, but nothing more. Meh, very passable beer. KingofCastle (208) - London, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2007 bottle: Thanks to Lord Beamish for this from his pilgrimage to Walkerville Brewery. Again, he hits the nail on the head: for a LIGHT beer, this is superior (as the label boldly declaires). Are all the reviewers here mad? It is a light beer, of course it will lack some flavour, but it has way more flavour than any light beer I’ve ever had! Just enough hops bite and some famous Walkerville sweet malts to really round out the flavour. Thiis is the best light beer I’ve ever had & isn’t that bad compared to normal beers. Comparing this to a full bodied ale or bitter is just missing the whole point. LordBeamish (144) - Boozetown, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 14, 2007
bottle: I picked one of these up direct from the factory in Windsor, Ontario. It’s a bold move to call your beer ’superior’ but when you produce award winning beers like Walkerville, you can justify the name choice. This is clearly superior to any light beer on the market. Having said that.....it’s still a light beer. Pours a beautiful deep golden colour with a thin white head. Some lacing is evident. It looks delicious. A sweet hops aroma leads to a pleasant mouth feel. Tastes somewhat sweet and finishes silky smooth. Surprising body for a light beer. This tastes very similar to its big brother beer, Walkerville Premium Blonde. Why everyone is roasting it remains a mystery to me. Maybe Walkerville doesn’t run enough commercials of scantily clad women or run a Maxim Golf Tournament like another light brand I know. Bizzare.

A lightly veeled blonde lager with a thin lacing white head. Light caramel adjuct aroma, boiled corn. In mouth, a light chlaky malt taste, no hops, light and innoffensive. Malty mineral water. mabel (9787) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 11, 2007
[111-20061121] 341mL. Musty, slightly burnt aroma. Clear, light orange body with many fast-rising tiny bubbles throughout and a quick foamy white head. Bready fish flavour with a light metal and slightly slate watery quality. Tingly tongue feeling but nothing important. Not terrible but not good either. shintriad (701) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2007
Apparently, Walkerville was known for its beer quality around the turn of the century. Okay...
They claim no adjuncts as well, but I detect distinct corny notes. A bit of grass and much malt for a lite beer in the nose; flavour-wise the sweetness is very apparent right off the bat, weak body and some astringency in the finish. Gets points for appearance: golden yellow with decent head and even a touch of lacing. But the imbalance and thinness make it an unpleasant drink overall.

Extremely light in colour and body. Not much to it in terms of variety of taste. Very distinct smell, hops, grassy undertones and malt. It claims to have yeast as well, but it’s not very prevalent. Overall a very weak beer that is slightly more interesting then it’s mainsteam counterparts (Budweiser and the like) Sanchex (224) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2006
For a light beer this ain’t too bad. I really like their lager and found this one to be, not a water-down version, but more of the economy version. The flavors aren’t as robust or distinct and some off flavors and aromas have snuck in. Fairly good body and nice light bitterness and a clean finish. Cheers!
