1.25/5 rDev -42.9%
Pours clear pale yellow with a small white head with poor retention. Smells somewhat like corn and like nothing else. Talk about bland.
Tastes somewhat like corn and grain, but mostly like water. Why bother to make this? Why did I bother to drink this left over beer flavored water?
Thin bodied, average carbonation. Doesn't have much in the way of aroma, taste, or character. A failure of a beer in about every way possible.
Reviewed from notes.

Served in a bottle at Admiral's Club at YYZ (Toronto, ON)
A: Pours a crystal clear pale yellow with a moderate amount of visible carbonation. The beer has a half finger tall fizzy white head that reduces to a thin patch and thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate lacing is observed.
S: Very sweet aromas of adjunct malts - including both grains and corn - along with a very light hint of hops.
T: Again, the flavor follows the smell of this beer... Light flavors of adjunct malts featuring both sweet grains and malts. There are some slightly skunky hints to the flavor of this beer and a light hop bitterness in the finish.
M: Served extremely cold, the mouthfeel was very light and thin/watery with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Very light an easy to drink and refreshing when it is really cold. Sessionable but not a beer that I'm going to go back to often - maybe best served when fishing. Definitely recommend drinking this beer when it is very cold.

Pours a translucent, golden yellow with a ton of carbonation rising to the top. There is some loose, soapy head when first poured but it quickly fizzes away to nothing. The smell is incredibly faint; sweet and grainy. The flavor is a little more than I expected. It's light and hardly intense, but lightly grainy and grassy with just enough hop character to keep me interested. The mouthfeel is very light and crisp.
This isn't a great beer, but for the style it has more flavor than most others. It's drinkable and refreshing. This isn't my style of choice, but this is a light beer I wouldn't mind having again.

Poured from can into pint glass
Appearance – The brew has light golden colored body and formed a large head upon pouring. The head faded fast giving almost no lacing.
Smell – Not much in the nose at all. A little bit of breadiness and some corn, but not much else.
Taste - A very light corn taste with the slightest bit of sweet caramel.
Mouthfeel – Very light bodied and a moderate level of carbonation. It is kind of like drinking a flavored seltzer water, but with a bit less carbonation.
Overall – As for light beers, this is not the greatest to say the least. If you really want a light beer do something like a Sam Adams light or a other lower abv. beers (such as Guinness Draught). This is not the best.

To be honest, this isn't far off of a Labatt. I guess as far as macro light beers go, it's not hideous. There's a mild maltiness to it, some wheat. Kind of sour and a mist of skunk to it.
The color is clear straw and bubbly, with something of a head and no lacing. Malt scent. Basically what you would expect.
