Leftover from a party a couple of weekends ago. Served cold in a pint glass. Figured if I was going to drink it, might as well review it. Gave it 2.5 across the board last time.

Appearance - pale piss yellow color, with two fingers of fluffy white head that dissipate very quickly. Lots of bubbles and good clarity.

Smell - Some general light grain aroma, possibly some corn. Not anything else.

Taste - Thin with initially a touch of grain and some corn sweetness and cooked veggies to close. Not great but worse certainly exists. Nothing too weird going on with after flavors.

Mouthfeel - Thin, fizzy and otherwise non-descript.

Overall - Decidedly mediocre, however worse AAL's are certainly out there and this is enjoyable enough if you're thirsty enough or its hot enough outside.

I'm 36 and have drank almost all Canadian and us beer. This is by far the smoothest, best tasting most underrated there is. Amazing

A eater boring beer with few good qualities. Can be great for a fishing trip or camping but must be served ice cold and downed without to much consideration. At least the can looks ok.

Honestly for the price you can't go wrong. There are much better lagers out there but at 19.99 for a case or 24 dollars for a 15 can pack you can't go wrong. A good camping beer served ice cold out of the cooler or mixed with clam if that's your thing.

Poured from a big bottle.

Very clear pale yellow color. Strong white head that disappears in no time. Sweet corn adjuncts dominate then blandness follows. Nothing truly offensive but it`s a bore and belongs at the low end of the spectrum.
