A clever little bear, spread through comedic marketing tools (Kind of a "Bud Light" from eastern Canada). And really a better beer if your sitting in a bar, faced with Coor-Bud-Molson draught choices.
Pours with a 1/2 inch head, fading quickly into nothingness, no lacing. Hoppy aroma, a bit yeasty.
Taste is a slight bitterness at the finish with some mild fruity interludes. Nothing special, gets a tad dull near the bottom of the glass.
Mouthfeel is watery, with lively carbonation.
A lawnmower or lesser-of-two evils beer, not terrible but not amazing.

473 ml can served cold into a pint glass. Purchased from LCBO for 2.35 CDN.
Appearance - clear pale golden color with a finger and a half of white head which recedes quickly and coalesces into a small white cap. Some effervescent bubbles rise from the centre of the glass.
Smell - weak grainy aroma. Some metallic mustiness in there to which is odd. Not a great smelling beer.
Taste - kinda like the nose, not much other than mild grains and a slight bit of bitterness. Really mild and pretty much an AAL crossed with and EIPA. There's just not much else there.
Mouthfeel - medium light body and soft carbonation. Would like a more lively mouthfeel.
Overall- pretty bland beer, lacking the crispness that good examples of the style usually have. I used to think this was a pretty good beer, and while inoffensive, there's not much exciting or different about this one. Still goes down easy enough on the first hot and humid day of 2014.
