Pours straw yellow - clear as a bell. A thin white head hangs on a little bit before becoming a vanishing patch.
The smell is of a hint of sweet grain. Inoffensive - clean as a whistle.
The taste is of some sweetness that is somewhat balanced in the finish. Clean, clean and crisp.
Light-bodied - not watery, though - but, fizzy.
The fizziness is pretty big and would get to me after awhile, even for the style, though it manages to keep something of a body. Very clean. Inoffensive. A bit of sweetness hangs on. Not a bad "lawn-mower" beer, though there are others that are cheaper that work just as well for that. Judged in style - could be better, could be much worse. I gave it the same score as Molson Canadian, but would probably take it over that.

I drank this straight from the bottle just to enjoy and relax after work today.
It was a clear golden color- what you'd expect from your typical macrobrewery.
A very light smell, hard to detect, but some wheaty notes of malt are what caught most of my attention.
The taste was pretty average. Wheat, grass, malt. It tasted a lot more refreshing and clear than a lot of similar brews.
Pretty decent mouthfeel. Not as smooth as I'd like, and a little too much carbonation.
This was a decent beer. Nothing special, not horrible. I'd drink it again, it's perfect for a weekend, relaxing, or after mowing the lawn.

2.6/5 rDev -1.5%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5
Poured on tap at Syracuse's New York State Fairgrounds.
A: A nice golden color with a very faint amber tinge. Deeper than your typical cheap pilsner but still lacking in color.
S: Very minor aromas of citrus and hops on a yeasty boozy base.
T: More body than a Bud or a light beer but not overly strong of anything. Lots of bready flavor with a very mild hop bite. Not too noticeable but not terrible.
O: If you're near Canada and your options are domestic Lights and Labatt Blue, take the Blue. Otherwise get something else.
Serving type: on-tap
