So PBR has finally invaded Canada. This stuff is actually contract brewed by the Great Western Brewing Co. up here, so it's not the "authentic" original, but hell, it's like the Americans getting their Guinness Extra Stout brewed up here in Canada instead of from Ireland.
A decent looking lager from the pour out of the can, pale golden but lots of carbonation, as well as a fairly impressive foamy white head. It doesn't last long, but it's also something I don't see very often on an adjunct lager either. The aroma is light, slightly sour accompanied by a corn sweetness as well. Although I begin to wonder if there is a contingent of rice adjunct in there too. The flavour is light and pretty unoffensive, there is a slight underlying sweetness, and the mouthfeel and body makes me think that rice is the primary adjunct at work here. Not much malt, that's for sure. This would probably be the best cheap lager you can pick up in Canada at the moment given the price, damn near a buck a can which is almost unheard of (and completely unheard of for other drinkable beer in that category).

The beer is light golden and transparent with a half inch of pure white head. Aromas of grain, bread, corn, adjuncts. Not as sweet and off putting as the BMC highly marketed crap that is seemingly everywhere. Grainy with some cereal-like character. Clean and refreshing. Basically, exactly what you would expect from a decent adjunct lager. Ok.
Serving type: on-tap
