Very popular in Quebec so why not give it a try.
About smell Im a little disappointed, doesn't smell that much.
Nice gold color, light carbonation, and taste is a fruity caramel.
This beer is much better than those Budweiser, Molson Dry and some cheap beer.
For me the price is a little bit hight compare to Sleeman.
So would I recommend it ?? On special Yes.. As I said the price is a little bit high and to find a 12 pack hard to find it,, so if you find it on special go for it.

S-bready malt, caramel, slight herbal

T-bread dough, caramel, hint of fruit, mild bitter finish

F-light body with moderate carbonation, crisp

O-average lager, better than adjunct, but not very compelling

I was rather surprised to see a 6-er at my local LCBO, and recall having it years ago when visiting Montreal.

A - Pours a nice dark golden colour, thin layer of head with little retention and no lacing.

S - Sweet corn, light caramel undertones, very bready with hints of pilsener-like grassy hop notes.

T - Reminiscent of a more flavourful mass produced lager like Canadian, but loads more bready malts and the grassy hops are also coming through quite well. Sweet corn lingers alongside a leafy bitter aftertaste.

M - No complains here, easy drinking and smooth.

O - Tasty ale, and given the style its fitting and offers up a solid dose of flavour for what is otherwise a fairly tame style. I would certainly prefer this over some other mass produced lagers.

Had on tap in Montreal (Bobards). Pours a clear faint gold, shiny white head, looks like a lot of carbonation, lots of bubbles. Scent is really non-apparant, a bit of grain, not much else. Taste is pleasant, some malty sweetness, mouthfeel is dry, crisp and drinkable. Overall, not bad, average and nothing special.

A: Really nice color, a yellow-orange color but very brilliant, with a well formed head that dissipates slowly, bubbles are small, compact and many.

S: This is the poorest part, barley is sensed but is not too intense or complex.

T: It is a pleasant tasting really malty as a lager should be but somehow a short flavor.

M: A really little sweet at the beginning changing slowly to a faint bitterness that last in the tongue and something in the throat, not to intense the sweet nor the bitter.

D: Refreshing tasting with a satisfactory sensation combined with the flavor makes a good combination.
