The commonly-maligned working-class industry standard does not pretend it's a rich gent's beer. It's an adjunct rice-based brew designed for the everyman- a cold reward after a hot day on a roof or in the factories that dot St. Louis, MO and London, ON.

(Review is for Canadian version brewed in Creston, BC)

Appearance - Pale apple juice with vanishing carbonation and a medium pale head

Smell - Mass-market milk chocolate, rice wine, sour crabapples

Taste- Even. Grain and grass are apparent, but nothing stands out and kicks you in the tastebuds.

Mouthfeel - straight, easy-drinking, but no real 'chewy' qualities.

Overall- this is often seen after work and on blistering weekends, provided by my friends looking to swallow a few back over conversation, barbecue, or fishing. I had mine today with an old pal's chatter and a Reuben sandwich. This is a daily style that deserves to be respected for what it is and for the intent of the brewery. It's well-made by people who care about what they are doing and meets it's mission as one of the great mass-market drinkers. It smells okay, goes down smooth, leaves little aftertaste, and lets you get on with the rest of your day.
