This beer to me is good for what it is style wise, it is crisp clean and refreshing. It is certainly one that you could session all night long and not get sick of the flavor. It has just enough to it it going on that it is enjoyable to me as compared to many regular adjunct lagers that I find to be extremely undrinkable. Is it complex no but it is it refreshing and drinkable yes, could take place as occasional go to when looking for easy drinking lager.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle marked GO411-12:15. Sampled on February 27, 2012. Too bad I can only get it in the green bottle in my area because it inevitably comes off as skunked. The pour is pale to golden yellow with a fizzy white head. Trying to block the skunkiness out of my mind I can get a solid malty scent on the nose and some crisp clean but vague hop esthers. The body is light to medium and average for the style. The taste also has a creamy, maltiness to it with a bitter hop bite playing tag on the end. In the 1980's this was a beer I drank quite often. Times and tastes change but it still is a halfway decent Canadian pale lager on occasion.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into Samuel Adams pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a golden hue with a white three-finger head. Minimal lacing is left on the glass.

Smell: SKUNKED! Damn green bottles...anyway, aside from skunk I can smell a hell of a lot of corn, and a tiny bit of hop smell.

Taste: Skunked again, but not as much as the smell. Very corny, and a bit of hoppyness. Watery and grassy, slight citrus tinge.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied and high carbonation, easy to drink, just like an AAL.

Overall: A decent beer that really just tastes like an above average AAL. Corny and refreshing.
