12oz. bottle: This beer pours a pale yellow color, with a bit of a white fizzy head. Well, it doesn’t smell bad, it just doesn’t smell like much at all. I get a weak nose of some sweet malts and that macro adjuct aroma. The taste isn’t offensive, just watered down. Typical thin light beer, with a hint more flavor than its American counterparts.

Clear very light gold color, like many a light american lager. Almost no head. Smell is slightly grassy with malt, but does have som adjunct tones. Taste is relatively bland, just light malt, and no noticable hops. No better or worse than many american light lagers, just another choice.

Pale yellow color with a huge white head that quickly dissipates. The nose is grainy with some bitterness. The flavor has a little corn added the the grains. Light overcarbonated body stings my tounge. I suppose a Canadian some where may enjoy this brew.

I fell like all light beers are the same but thsi one isnt as bad as some of the ones Ive had. I usually have a lot of these and its non-light counter part when i got to Buffalo apparently Canadian beer is big over there. jaja Anyway the beer is a light gold color with very little head that quickly disappears. Tatse of some maltines and some hops during gth after tste a smooth mouthfeel that isnt dry at all. Smell is mostly og grain and alcohol.

Blah... not a special beer, and doesn't really hold a candle to it's full flavor brother. Light golden color with a short lived head. Medium low carbonation. Scents of corn and hops were present, but very light. Flavor was on the stale watery side for my liking, but none the less went down smooth, and would be a do-able session beer. Not much of an aftertaste, but notes of alcohol and hops were slightly noted. Worth a try, but nothing great.

Poured from a 12oz can into a pint glass.

The color is a clear pale yellow with a very thin white head and has no lacing.

The smell is of a grainy, yeasty flavor with a bit of a corn smell.

The taste is of cooked corn and is very light. No hop flavor to speak of. Has a grain feel as well.

The feel of this beer is dry with a light, crisp feel. It is also very drinkable.

poured a very pale straw color - but really should just be had from the can - soap like white head that faded fast to a thin film.
Smelled like "beer" I'm assuming that's the corn "adjunct" coming through no hops no real barley smells
tastes like a light beer has a (IMO) better taste than say a bud light
mouthfeel is slightly more than water... slightly
Drinkability... hahaha the only reason this beer exists is to sit down watch some hockey and put a 12'er away and not notice

when you gotta drink a light macro this would be mine of choice....

Presentation: 12 oz long neck bottle - double label with random "witty" sayings on the back. Bottle brags about being North America's oldest brewery.

Appearance: Pours a pale yellow color - completely clear. Decent white head that quickly fades.

Smell: Fresh crisp smell of an adjunct lager. Very very slight hop smell.

Taste: Again - crisp, fresh taste. Very light bodied, clean taste. No aftertaste whatsoever.

Overall impression: Decent beer for what it is. I'm not a fan of light beers - but this seems to be better than a lot of the BMC offerings.
