11.2 bottle. Pours a light gold, slightly frothy white head with some retention. Slight vegetable aroma, mostly malt sweetness, little hop presence. Mostly malty sweetness as far as flavor goes, slight hint of corn, very little hops/bitterness. Has quite a body for a lager, medium carbonation, slightly slick texture. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2010
[2661-20091216] 330mL bottle. Mild grainy hay aroma. Clear, medium orange brown body with a medium-lasting creamy off-white head and nice lacing. Full yeasty bread dough flavour is mostly off hay straw with an odd sweet chocolate note and something like a sweet grain aftertaste, like yogurt. Medium body is a little rough. Not great. Why do they use clear bottles? Why?

It was on sale because of the Olympics, how patriotic of me. Gold colour. Faint veggie and hop aroma. Mild hops, some grassiness, burnt caramel, sugariness, and spoiled vegetables. Some bad flavours in this, but largely an inoffensive lager. terrybail (704) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 30, 2010
Bottle from the LCBO
Pours a pale yellow with a pretty good sized white head not bad lacing
The aroma is mixed hay and corn not the best
The taste is quite sweet carmely malt a touch better then your average macro lager but only slightly blankboy (7689) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2010
My bottle [330ml] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus. Pours a clear gold with a small fluffy white head. Aroma of sweet malt, corn, caramel and very light grassy hops. Flavour of caramel malt, grain and a hint of grassy hops. Average bodied. Just O.K.

Pour is golden honey amber with thin head. Aroma is a pine resin aroma. Flavour is sweet toffee malt with a light bittering finish. Better beer than what the impression gives you. poisoneddwarf (2511) - Coeur d’ Alene, Idaho, USA - JAN 4, 2010
11.2 oz bottle. Aroma is extremely sweet caramelized grains. Smells somewhat like a Sam Adams Boston Lager, maybe a little sweeter. Pours golden with a medium dissipating head, decent lacing. Taste is sweet. Medium carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, watery finish. Not bad, but it seems like a direct ripoff of Sam Adams’ flagship brew, which is itself something I’ve never been all that enthusiastic about.

Bottle from the LCBO. Nice golden colour, small white head. Aroma is quite generic - sweet malt, a bit of grass, mild fruitiness - but not unpleasant. Decent mouthfeel - a bit sticky, and could use a touch more carbonation, but it’s alright. Flavour follows the aroma - sweet start and middle, quickly hopped finish. Not a lot going on, but it could be a lot worse. Reid (2536) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 30, 2009
Golden with a good sized dirty white head.
OK macro lager aromas, cardboard and sourdough..no its not that bad!
Taste seems to have a little more going on, there seems to be a nice biscuity maltiness, and a tangible bitterness..I take that is from the hops?
Not bad on the palate,just above average for style.
Overall not a bad little lager. robforbes (2241) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - NOV 29, 2009
