Can: Poured a clear golden color beer with a small foamy head with minimal retention. Aroma consists of weird grainy notes with light metallic taste. Taste is also a mix between some dry unrefined grainy notes which are more or less pleasant. Boyd is thin with good carbonation. I guess this is probably OK for people not drinking alcohol or for functions were alcohol is not allowed but apart from that it should be avoided at all cost.

A cold can of my Grandfathers near beer. Presidents Choice is the in-house brand of Loblaws supermarkets and their subsidiaries. Alcoholic beer is contract brewed by Brick and sold and provincial Brewers Retail (The Beer Store) locations, non-alcoholic brews are brewed under contract and sold in the supermarket chains themselves.

Ingredients list corn syrup, caramel colour, and sulphite in addition to the usual water, barley, hops, yeast, and hop extract.

PC Blonde Brew is pale straw in colour, just as it's name suggests. Visibly active carbonation feeds a fizzy white head that takes about 15-20 seconds to disappear, leaving a surprising lace behind. I would think this was a pils, euro lager, or decent American macro if it were poured from an unmarked container.

Smells mildly grainy; furtively, transiently floral. Very very faint, but still at least slightly beer-ish. The taste could also be described as beerish, having a slightly sweet and mild cereal character finishing with a mild bitterness. Has a bit of medicinal quality to it in the aftertaste. Inoffensive if you don't let it warm up.

Thin and watery with a prickly carbonation. Refreshing and quenching when cold. Definately not for the beer geeks, but does a good job of imitating the mass market domestic lagers and old man trying to limit his consumption grew up drinking.
