Golden body, pours without forming a proper head, no lace. Faint corn cereal and green apple aroma. Doughy malt and corn syrup flavour, with a moderately strong green apple character. Alcohol is a tiny bit harsh, but bearable. Unpleasant, but bearable. Light-bodied with low carbonation, but not watery. Seems to have little more body than Busch Beer. Much as I expected, this is like a slightly concentrated version of Busch. Unfortunately, that means the off-flavours in Busch Beer are concentrated as well.

500ml Can from the Ottawa LCBO for 1.90$

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

Smell - Malts, breads/grains, metallic, corn

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts and corn mixed with some light fruity notes. There is also a graininess and it ends with a slightly sweet aftertaste.

Overall - The flashy new can/label caught my eye, but this is just another poor macro with a little bit of extra alcohol. A good beer for the university kids trying to get drunk I suppose. I wouldn't buy this again.
