Oh man this is sad that they don't make this anymore. I only had this one time but I had a lot of it this one time that my friends and I camped in Quebec. Yea I know this is not a respectable type of beer according to the shared opinions of beeradvocate types, but this beer is really good to drink. It tastes a bit like milk, which I gather is the result of "adjuncts" but fucking whatever. If you like drinking liquid that tastes good, this was a good product. Especially if you like it when that liquid gives you a buzz.

I gave the appearance 3.5, because I never poured it out of the bottle, except for into my mouth.

I've been told this beer was very popular in Québec in the 60's, 70's, and early 80's. It seems to now be relegated to "Québécois PBR" status. I found it on a ride back from Sherbrooke at the duty free near Stanstead and Derby Line,VT. It seems somewhere inbetween Molson EX and Labatt 50, with, dare I say it?..less flavor. It's got a watery texture, light faint tannin hoppy flavor, and goes down easy. Maybe a little corn syrup like adjunct in there somewhere, but really can't tell. I think this may have been a Francophone pride answer to 50 back in the day, because of the cool retro looking Rooster logo.

I was pleasantly surprised when I took a trip to Montreal and found this. It was the cheapest beer per bottle they had at the Super C, so I got the 28 pack of bottles.

Appearance: Nothing to special, a regular Blonde Ale.
Smell: A nice slight hoppy smell, though not overwhelming.
Taste: I was very surprised how good it tasted, it had that American Blonde Ale taste of Bud Light, etc. but with more flavor and presence.
Mouthfeel: I enjoyed it, it wasn't a chugging beer to me, but it wasn't quite one that you savor in your mouth for a long time
Drinkability: This beer definitely can be drunk for a good while, goes down very smooth, little after-taste.

Overall, a very good beer for being Quebec's Cheap beer.

Presentation: Here's another Quebec classic one. Laurentide could be considered as a French Canadian Bud. It used to be a best-seller, but since a few years, it is only sold in 28 (24+4)economy pack.

Appearance: It is just another yellow fizzy beer.

Smell: The adjunct aroma is very present and some hops is found in the back.

Taste: It tastes old-style macro.

Mouthfeel: It is average. Not bad, not good. Just a typical mouthfeel.

Drinkability: Overall, it is just an ordinary beer for ordinary people.It is ok, if you like Bud, Miller and that kind of stuff.
