Best light beer out there! Great at the beach, floating the river or mowing the lawn (on a riding lawn mower).

I think this is one of the best light beers. I personal do not like any light beers, but if I have to go out and hang with wife and friends then this would be a good alternative. Keeps me in check and prevents me from saying exactly what I am thinking. = ) We keep friends because of this beer. Other wise I would comment on everyone’s stupidity. E’nuff said, you know what I am talking about. Going to get an IPA. Later.

Not sure why this rating is so low. Every time I go to the beer store or lcbo it’s out of stock so clearly people love it. Smooth as it gets . I drive to other locations just to get what I want .

One of the best light beers ever. Non filling and light on impurities leave a crisp beer than can be consumed in mass while suffering little consequences. Perfect for sunny days and activities.

On draught at Old Chicago.

Pours the palest of pale, decent head of foam.

Smells so light, grain, touch of semisweet malt.

Taste is the same with the added attraction of being watery.

Lightest of bodies, truly as bland as bland can get.

25 ounce can into lager glass, best before 5/24/2015. Pours crystal clear pale golden/straw color with a 1 finger dense and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of cracker, white bread, light biscuit/dough/corn, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. A bit fruity, but not overwhelming. Okay aromas with pale malt/grain and light earthy hop notes; with decent strength. Taste of cracker, white bread, light biscuit/dough/corn, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Very minimal herbal, grassy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, white bread, light biscuit/dough/corn, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness flavor a short bit. Solid robustness of pale malt/grain and light earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and light body; with a very smooth, fairly bready/grainy, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is okay. Thin/watery, but not too bland of a finish. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.2%. Overall this is an okay light lager. All around solid robustness of pale malt/grain and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing too drink. Nicely clean barley/grain flavors and mild earthy hop balance. For an ultralight beer this does a good job, without tasting like pure water. A fairly enjoyable offering, and well made style example.

Not a bad beer, especially if you're watching your carb intake to avoid a bloated beer belly.

Another beer from my early days. I've had it a few other time since then and... I don't have a lot to say. As an "ultra light" beer, it's not gonna have a particularly strong taste, and it's super fizzy, like a seltzer. The ones I had honestly weren't as watery as I was expecting, which is why I rated the taste a little bit higher. Fairly smooth and overall has a cool vibe to it, whatever that means. Inoffensive, but you might be better off with a Rolling Rock or Miller.

Bought a 12-pack bottles $12.99 Longs Drugs
Clear golden color
Medium carbonation
Light mouthfeel
Light malt flavor, smooth
Overall not for me. Seems like cheap beer that has been watered down.
