bouteille transparente de 341ml.

bière lager blonde commerciale. couleur blé pâle très pâle avec mousse chimique épaisse, mais qui ne dure pas. nez vert de houblon mort, la bouche est du même acabit, verte, râche et désagréable. sans intérêt. la recette de cette bière a changé elle était bien meilleure avant.

Bottle: Poured a clear golden colored beer with almost no head or carbonation. Aroma is quite skunky, which surprised me since I pick what I thought, was a fresh batch. Aroma is quite weak as expected. Taste is also quite weak with limited malt and again that skunky feel coming out. Still a mystery why they bother using a clear bottle.

Didn't enjoy this one at all - to the point that i didn't finish it. Too much corn, a hint of the skunk, unpleasantly fizzy. Golden yellow in colour, headless like the horseman. Grainy nose, thin bodied, bitter metallic finish.

Just not worth the bother across the board.

Pale yellow, pale even for a lager. Half a centimetre of white head. Lots of active carbonation visible in the glass, and the carbonation seems to be creating pretty good head retention. Lacing sticks as well.

The smell starts out awful and improves to bad. Strong skunk mixed with a strange sweetness at first. Skunk fades some, and mixes in with sweet corn and a grassiness. Nothing good in here.

Taste is possibly worse. Starts out with that sweet corn flavour and goes into the skunk and dry grass. Slight solvent alcohol flavour in there as well.

Mouthfeel is alright. Fizzy, but for the style it really isn't bad.

This isn't a good beer. I doubt I will finish.

341ml clear bottle poured in a dimpled mug. I like the relief on the bottle of a beaver and maple leaf as well as just the neck label, but I still don't understand the clear bottle. I guess it's just their gimmick on the Canadian market.

Nice clear gold colour with a few carbonation streams. Bright white head is thin at the pour, then is just a thin ring by the time I walk from the kitchen to the living room.

Aroma is mostly corn, but with a background of light grains and a bit of a floral tinge.

Taste is mostly grains with a bit of a metallic twang in the finish. Aftertaste is harsh and caustic. Would be a fairly average macro lager but the metallic accent and chemical aftertaste it's really rather unpleasant.

Thin and fizzy mouthfeel. That caustic aftertaste combines with an unpleasant harsh feeling.

There are lots of other macro lagers out on the market and most of them are better than this one. Don't waste your time and money, unless someone buys you one, or you try it in a mix pack like I did.

Presentation: 355ml can. 5.0% Nice design can.

Appearance: Urine yellow. Way too much foam in the head. Maybe a little too much carbonation.

Smell: The first smell was inviting, but if you smell it again, there's like a soap smell.

Taste: More you drink, the less you find taste and the more you dislike it.

Mouthfeel: Not really good. High carbonation and too much after-taste bad bitterness.

Drinkability: Hey, what's going on John Sleeman? Why have you did that one? It seemed to me that your products were better than this can.

Been trying to avoid this one but buddy brings some over for the CFL game.

Pours a clear pale gold, small fast vanishing cap, heavy carbonation poor lacing.

Very faint odor of stale cereals and wet cardboard.

Taste is bland, more of a watery stale mealy taste rather than fresh sweet malt, hops are non existant, fast clean uneventful finish.

I may have gotten a stale dated bottle but frankly I can't find the interest to get another for a re-taste.

341 ml clear bottle.

A- pale golden yellow. A few particles floating in it. Decent white head. A few streams of bubbles rising in the beer. Head doesn,t last but it does stick to the glass a bit.

S- Skunked. Grassy-straw hops just noticeable. Grape finish.

T- Slightly sour middle. Hint of skunk. Weak. OK flash of bitterness. Bitter hops level well balanced with the rest. Grainy aftertaste. I didn't like the flavour.

MF- Drying. Crisp. Leaves just a little pastiness in the mouth.

D- Not exactly hard to drink. Even decent as a thirst quencher. But I couldn't enjoy it due to off smell and taste. A fresher bottle may have gotten a better rating.

I didn't really care for this offering from Sleeman. Poured out to a medium golden color with a 1/2 inch head of foam that quickly disappeared. Little bit of lacing. Aromas of adjunct and stale corn, and maybe some malt. Taste was the same; watery malt and grain, a touch of corn, no hops noted though. This was not a well made lager. Mouthfeel was very watery, not alot going on. Drinkability isn't up to par. I'd have another if it were free, but other than that, count me out.

Very pale yellow and crystal clear. Frothy head of medium duration. Laces in incomplete rings, some drips. Vaguely malty aroma, slightly tea-like. Mouthfeel is light but carbonation is about right. The flavor is definitely wanting, Karo syrup sweetness with litttle hop. Slightly grassy late in the profile. Drinkable in that its close to tasteless, there are American macros that make more of a statement -- good or bad.
