look: 3.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Served in a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep gold, ligt bubbles off the body very thin white head that barely rose to 1/10".

Smell: I would rate it lower but it doesn't stink and that's the only reason why. Smells like nothing.

Taste: Light malt and hops, little rice feel to it that makes it very easy to drink.

Mouth: medium carbonation, exceptionally smooth.

Overall: Not a bad brew, I know it's not meant to be great but it is just right especially right after meal. Salud!

Serving type: can

A bottle into a pint glass. Thank you mom, for the tick.

Sleeman pours out your standard yellowish gold color with some faint bubbles that don't get to a cap, or even nothing. By the time i was dome pouring, nothing to speak of. Smell is pale malt, adjuncts, spent grain and sweetness. Taste is pretty much the same, I get some caramel, with faint old earthy hops. No bitterness though. Malt presides. Grain comes forth with warming, drink it up. Feel is a bit above light bodied, For a pale beer, the body won't do. The crispness is not present as the carb is minimal and the taste aint all there. No aftertaste to speak of, that's a plus. The ABV is minimal, but so is the taste. On a rainy day in Canada if I ever get up there I will revisit this and blend in.

Before I branched out into the microbrew scene, this one a beer that I had considered "exotic". My, how times - and opinions - have changed.

That said, as a more mainstream lager, I can enjoy it - you just know what you're getting into. It's clean, it's crisp, it goes down well, it just doesn't have much in the way of extra deliciousness that really sets it apart from the others in the pack.

I've had it over the years and have never been disappointed; this was my beer on tap of choice on St. Patrick's Day when they added the green dye. At least it really looked pretty!

Not bad by any stretch, but if you're looking for something interesting, move along past this one.

Serving type: on-tap
