2.68/5 rDev -6.6%
Can from the Ottawa LCBO for $2
Appearance - Clear yellow colour with a massive size fizzy white coloured head. There is a high amount of carbonation showing and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes.
Smell - Corn, apples, grains
Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste corn, apples, and grains. There is also a slight cardboard type flavour. It ends with a stale adjunct aftertaste.
Overall – Pretty much what I was expecting I guess.. just another poor adjunct from Molson Coors. It did have a nice appearance, I will give it that.

Pale, pale yellow brew under and big, big bright white soapy head. Settles to a bubbly cap before giving way to a ring. Reasonably
Nose is typical pilsner-type hops and malt, nothing particularly exciting or offensive. Corny sweet to drink up front, slightly redeems itself with some proper graininess up the middle before giving way to a sweet sticky finish. Ends with a doughy bitterness. Not crisp in any way, just big and puffy sweet on the palate.
Not particularly fun to drink. Cheesy looking can as a bonus. That's done.

YES! So happy to see this available at the Beer Store. A classic prairie pilsner that has a serious cult following and a disgusting association with the Riders. From notes.
A - Light apple juice coloured pour with good carbonation. Bright and had a two finger fluffy white head that left good lace rings and a finger of retention.
S - Sweet grain, apple, pear, corn.
T - Sweet grain again, mild hope note, honey. Not all that unpleasant.
M - Strong carbonation, medium body, sweet finish. Good for the style.
O/D - I've had this a couple times out West and never felt it was too bad for the style. I could definitely have a few of these in a night and consider it one of the better adjunct lagers around. Avoids the DMS assault most examples of the style carry with them.

Appearance- Pours a straw yellow with a finger width of bubbly head.
Smell- Sweet corn, grains, apple, grassy.
Taste- Sweet corn, grains, and apple are all present followed by a grassy and dry finish.
Mouthfeel- Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall- An easy drinking pilsner. This is one of the better macros out there considering its brewed by Molson. This would be perfect for a hot summer day after doing yard work or something along those lines.

As for Canadian macro-brews this is one of the best.
Appearance is translucent golden yellow with a straw/yeast smell. Tastes good and clean with slight aftertaste. Not sure I would truly call it a pilsner rather than just a Canadian/American lager.

A - Pours a large head, just slightly off white. Body is extremely clear, golden yellow. Some lacing but doesn't stick around long.
S - sweet scent. Some wheat aromas, but overall pretty nice.
T - Again it is very sweet (relatively to other lagers). Good malt flavors. Everything is very light in flavor, but not offputting in anyway. As I continue to drinking, it becomes more and more mundane. The hops start to come out more and it tastes is a pretty typical pilsener.
M - Decent. Ok carbonation and slightly below average body. No complaints, but nothing sticks out.
O - Pretty typical, but always fun to try new brews. Thanks to richoch3t for bringing this back from Canada for me.
