2.95/5  rDev -9.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Came in a white 500ml can with a freshness stamp on the bottom. Pours out a pale gold, small white head that recedes fairly quickly, not a heck of a lot of carbonation to be detected except for the odd bubble. Smells sweetish, faint metallic note, some clover honey and....apple juice. Flavour is average, carries that metallic tinge, nothing special at all, but an okay thirst quencher for a hot day. Still, I think I'd even prefer a Molson to one of these, especially regarding the price. Whoa, did I just say that out loud?!

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

500mL can, date stamped 275/13, so I'm assuming it was canned on October 2, 2013. Maybe a bit past its prime, but I'm sure it hasn't been affected a whole lot, if any.
L - golden with nice clarity, fizzy white head dissipates quickly
S - grain, spicy grassy noble hop, yeast
T - grass, possible adjunct grain, spicy noble hop
F - dry and crisp, lighter body
O - this was always in my father-in-law's fridge and I hated it so much, but coming back to it, it's not that bad. I'd rather drink something else, but it's not as terrible as I remember.

look: 3.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 3

Pours golden and is very clear.. good head on this one that slowly fades

Smells grassy with a hint of apricot?

Tastes pretty good.. a smooth drop with a slight hint of floral hops (minimal but there)

For the price this is a very good buy. Will be getting a few next time.
