mabel (8717) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2007
[298-20070507] 500mL. Wheaty yeast aroma has non-descript vegetable and hints of wet cardboard. Clear, orange copper body with some medium-sized bubbles and a big foamy white head. Light wheat and hints of fruity apple flavouring. Light-medium body. Nice and smooth and bland and watered down.

piscator34 (2397) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 13, 2007
Gold in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas of slightly sweet pale malt and a bit of grassy hop. More semi-sweet malt notes in the mouth, with a touch of corn and a vague green hop presence. Medium bodied, with some apparent bitterness. A bit too heavy for the style and a bit light on the hops, but not too bad overall. I acctually drank the whole can, which is saying something considering the style. Thanks to mnurda for bringing the can back from Toronto.

Boutip (6179) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 16, 2007
Can: Poured a golden yellow color lager with a medium bubbly white head with minimal retention. Aroma of semi-sweet malt and light hops is a bit shy but could have been worse. Taste is sweet with some light floral hops at the end. There is some adjunct in there but not in such large quantities as to gross out the whole thing. Overall, this was not a bad beer but not something I would go for again.

KingofCastle (208) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2006
500 mL can: Love the way these Wells beers come in 2L pop bottles at the Beer Store, strange. Basically, this is better than you would think: nice lager for a British beer, and stands out a bit from the typical corn macro brew in North America. HogtownHarry right again here: pleasant bite due to the above average hops (probably those Goldings hops softened by Challenger ones used in Bombardier Ale, you can smell it right away, very distinct). Nice lager to try on a mild day with some sticky comfort food. Deep golden colour, thin white head, decent lacing.

TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2006
500 mL bottle. Yellow with an orange tint. Very thin film of head. Sharp aroma with citrus and grain. Dont like the taste. Seems stale or something. Definitely corn. Slightly metallic finish, with a hint of bitterness after its gone.

larsga (7444) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 7, 2006
Small creamy white head; clear yellow body. Very, very faint fruity aroma. Taste is fruity, acidic malts with harmonic grassy hops. Velvety mouthfeel. Dry, bitter, grassy aftertaste. Good session beer. (0.5l on tap.)

jercraigs (10210) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2005
Can from LCBO. Golden yellow with a fluffy white head. Muted grassy aroma with very mild grains and floral notes. Moderate bitterness, slightly floral grains over muted malt. Average palate. Dull but mostly inoffensive.

HogTownHarry (6482) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 9, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2006 Can (500ml). Poured vaguely reddish clear gold with an average pillowy white head. Aroma is lightly skunky but intriguingly strong with hops, active and somewhat piney - not too sweet, almost gingery. Taste is less hoppy, but not bad - simple, a little carbonated, with a pleasant bite to it. I dont mind this one.

JohnBarleycorn (537) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 28, 2005
Medium-gold with a touch of brown. The aroma hints at a refreshing brew, with lager-standards of hops and sugar, and some grain and florals. Palate is fairly thin, and the flavour lacks character, with a dominating watery feel and a slightly bitter, slightly malty aftertaste. Quite average, and could use a bit more of somethinganything.
