A friend of mine from Utah grew up drinking this beer and couldn't wait to give me a bottle to try. He called it "way better than Coors light", which let me know exactly what I was gettin myself into. Taking that in mind, I truly enjoyed this beer. Pale light lager with a nose of grain, corn and hops that balance very well. The taste is light and soft; cereal grains, husk, corn, very clean with a medium thin yet creamy mouthfeel. Highly carbonated but does not "bite". A very tasty session beer that is superior to American adjunct lagers, and does indeed taste "way better than Coors light".

Crisp and cold, redolent of hockey, lumberjacks, wolverines, and the Yukon. But for that there isn't much to recommend here - doesn't taste bad but doesn't taste good, either. Pours with a hearty glug glug, a neutral yellow and a foam that disappears quickly. You'll need at least a twelver to get your swerve on.

This beer was light and crisp, yet bold and flavorful. I was pleased with the taste and it quickly became my favorite when in Vancouver. It was the type of beer that I tend to gravitate to because it was easy to drink. I look forward to returning to Canada so that I can reunite with this tasty selection. It's a favorite with Canadians too and as I noticed it was available in cans, bottles and on-tap, as well as a light variation. it's definitely a beer I will remember.
