3.13/5 rDev +4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5
Presentation: 12oz green bottle. No freshness date. Brewed in Toronto, Canada.
Appearance: Pale straw yellow / golden beer with a nice pure white head that quickly settles to a thin white foam lace. Active carbonation.
Smell: Sulfur. Skunky. Herbal. Expected.
Taste: Light-bodied. Creamy, smooth mouthfeel. Crisp. Dry. Even dextrin/malt feel on the palate. Malt sweetness is low. Hops contain a quick, sharp citrusy bite with notes of spicy herbal and floral fading back into the light malt character. Notes of sulfur pull thru, but don't overwhelm. Finish is quite dry with a slighty spicy herbal hop residuals and a husk character.
Notes: Honestly, for a big pseudo-imported macro beer, this isn't all that bad to suck down. Similar to a Heineken, but better, IMO. Just an okay lager. Around average, and nothing more.
Serving type: bottle

2.9/5 rDev -3.7%

12 oz green bottle, no freshness date. Brewed in Toronto Canada by Labatt.
Decent frothing at first pouring, a two finger cropped white head stays for about a minute then settles to a pasty lace.
Mild cooked hop aroma with a side of grain, a pretty clean aroma other than the stinky hops.
Light bodied with a thin malty palate, crisp and clean on the tongue with a semi forced carbonation. Quick flash of hop bitterness is all of the hops that you see other than a faint veggie flavour that would come from an over cooked hop. Light and grainy in the finish, dry in the end with a faint alcohol.
An ok lager, probably tastes better from Denmark just another pseudo-import in America.
