This beer is unavailable in my home province of Alberta, but I had a bunch of bottles of this on my trip to Las Vegas. Casino Royale had bottles of this swill for $1, which in Alberta is absolutely unheard of even for the worst beer. Our hotel was only a short walk from Casino Royale, so my friends and I took part in this offer several times.

Can't comment on the appearance since we drank it from the bottle, but the aroma wasn't awful for an adjunct lager. This is certainly a step above Bud.

The taste is also noticeably less adjunct-y than all the other big brands, with a refreshing finish.

It's still a poor beer, but it's a good poor beer.
