This is the worst offender on the beer scene today. The type of beer a guy with missing teeth and a grungy old ballcap pickes up because he's "a goin' fishin' with ma buddies", and he ends up back at your liquor store for another case later that night, all wobbly and smelling of piss. Some people from Victoria still drink it because they claim it's "a Vancouver Island staple", but what they fail to realize is that it's brewed by Labatt's in Edmonton and right across Canada with a slurry of adjuncts that barely resemble beer. Never, ever drink one.

Picked a 473 ml can up from the beer store since it happened to be $2.00 CDN and I was return 20 cans @10 cents apiece. Poured in a pint glass.
Appearance - Aggressive pour yielded over 2 fingers of foam which did dissolve quickly but was nonetheless decent. A weak off yellow color is featured. The beer itself just from its appearance looks thin but we will see. Some lacing in the glass.
Smell - Grains, grassy notes. Both are faint and there's not much there. This would be expected from a light beer but at almost 5%, I was expecting something on those nose for better or worse.
Taste - Like the nose, thin tasting a vague sweetness that assuredly comes from the adjuncts.
Mouthfeel - Wet, thin with minimal aftertaste. Almost feels like it should be a light beer because there is very little of substance. Some carbonation and its probably the right amount, but still just "meh".
Overall - Wet and would do the job on a hot summer's day but unless you're looking for a a cheap fix of mediocre beer, I can't see anyone sitting down and enjoying this. On the positive side, if you don't mind the beer, at almost 5% it could be a cheap drunk beer.
