473ml Can - from the LCBO for 2$

Appearance – Clear yellow colour with a small size fizzy white coloured head. There is a high amount of carbonation showing and there is some faint lacing. The head lasted for 1 or 2 minutes.

Smell - Grains, bread, corn, malts, alcohol

Taste & Mouth - The beer has an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts mixed with grains and corn/cooked vegtables. There is also some harsh alcohol flavour and something along the lines of stale bread. It ends with a grainy harsh alcohol aftertaste.

Overall – Ughhhh, another dreadful beer from this brewer. I won't be revisiting this beer again any time soon.

Golden colour and brilliant clarity with loads of visible carbonation. Large meringue-like head, good retention, no lace. Boiled corn aroma with hints of bread dough and buttery diacetyl. Malt forward with doughy and corn syrup flavours, overcooked vegetables, a light butterscotch note, and almost no hopping to speak of. Light-bodied and highly carbonated. Feels prickly and gives you unpleasant tasting burps. Slight diacetyl slickness. A flavourful lager in all the worst ways. I feel like a masochist for actually finishing this.

1.57/5  rDev -3.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1 | overall: 1.5

Can: Poured clear golden color beer with a relatively large foamy head with average retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of light adjunct with load of blandness. Taste is also dominated by lightly sweet adjunct notes with limited fusel notes. Body is average with good carbonation. I hadn’t had malt liquor in a while and this is definitely lees offensive then I was expected though still freaking bland at the end of the day.
