341ml bottle

A - Straw yellow, very reminiscent of urine, very little head that quickly dissipates.

S - a little yeast, and sweet grain. Corn or rice. No hops.

T - like the style. Some rice, grain, clouded by a medium carbonation, leaving a slightly moldy aftertaste.

M - Not bad. Medium-light body. Easy to drink

O - I'm glad it was free.

This is an average Canadian Lager ala Molson. I had it on tap in Montreal, at a small local pub. The appearance was a golden color with a slight reddish hue. The smell was unexceptional, I was not able to pick out any stong notes. The taste was typical lager, no suprises, nothing original. At the same time, not bad, certainly an easy beer to drink a few of. The mouthfeel was smooth, and light, like the rest of the beer, typical. Overall, this beer, as I have mentioned before, is typical, nothing special, but at the same time, not bad.

Bottle: Poured a clear yellow color lager with a nice bubbly head with average retention. Aroma of crisp hops is clearly identifiable and enjoyable. Taste is light and refreshing with a solid malt backbone for the style and fresh crisp hops at the end. Above average for the style and glad I got the chance to try this one fresh.

Yellow beer, a typical golden lager with a good carbonation, which was fun to look at all the bubbles dancing in my pint. Smell like a typical lager but a strong smell of wheat was very present, a bit cereal too. The taste was not that great, not present, a tiny malt, nothing great.

660ml Bottle - from Marche Omni

Appearance – Clear yellow colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for 2 or 3 minutes.

Smell - Grains, bread, corn, malts, lemon

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation. I can taste malts mixed with light hops and a touch of citrus. There is also a bit of corn/grains and a grassiness. It ends with a lightly floral aftertaste.

Overall – This beer could stack up against most of the imported euro lagers for sure. It's got a pleasant drinkable taste and has a nice appearance in the glass. I won't rush out to buy more, but it wasn't a waste of money either.

Tremblay from Brasseurs R.J Review 2.0 bought a 12 pack for 13,99$ here in Montreal

Look: Yellow golden and orange colour. Lots of carbonation. 1 finger of white head that goes away.

Smell: Citrus, grass a touch of sweetness.

Taste: Hops and a surprising strong flavour of citrus.

Feels: Amazing, goes down really easily, you have a citrus notes like almost an IPA style (not as the same but the citrus keeps on coming back)

So overall would I recommend it? For sure, this is a much better beer than Molson or Labatt products and the price is even cheaper. Brasseurs R.J just prove us that cheap beer doesn t mean bad beer

My father often stocks this beer, so I have had many. I often choose it because it is much less watery, more of a real beer flavour, than the macro beers with which it often shares a fridge.

A- Very clear golden colour. Decent initial head but goes down quickly.

S- Not strong. Slighly floral with grassy odour and ethanol.

T- Strong hops flavour. Tad floral. I find the after taste a bit much on this beer.

MF- Light, a bit thin. Carbonation a bit high.

D- Aftertaste and carbonation make this a beer I rarely feel like having many of in a row. Sometimes I feel the need to cut through the aftertaste with a bit of salty food.

A: very pale yellow color with generous pure white head.

S: Can't smell anything much except maybe some corn and malty sweetness. Some herbs too.

T: Taste was ok. Nothing spectacular. Made me think of a beefed up budweiser. Corn is there and is actually nice, bringing some sweetness. Malt is also present as expected. Very low hop levels though...

M: Surprisingly very good. Carbonation is mid to high and has a very creamy feel to it, not watery at all.

D: as with any macros, drink is high since taste is weak and doesn't have much aftertaste.
