An ice-brewed beer that has a clean, fresh, smooth finish from the ice-filtering process. Laker Ice is then carefully filtered to create a very drinkable brew with an appealing aroma and a higher alcohol strength.

You’re drinking this to get drunk; not to enjoy a quality beer.

It tastes like slightly malty water. Goes down nice and smooth. No real complaints here but you’d be hard pressed to find any real endorsements either.

Make no mistake: this is a shit beer you buy for the alcohol content and nothing more. HOWEVER as shit beers bought solely for their alcohol content go; this one goes hard. My number 1 recommendation for broke college students.

The only people I ever see buying this obviously want to save .25c per can. It is not worth the savings because this beer is horrid. Just spend more and drink something good. If I could give this less than 1 I would

L: Transparent light yellow, some bubbles, minimal head
S: Sweet slightly skunky adjunct lager smell, some fruity apple notes
T: slightly sweet, a bit dry and bitter. Not too flavorful but also not too bland. A bit balanced towards the toasted malts with a slight skunky hop note.. The alcohol is a bit detectable.
F: Medium carbonation and light bodied. A bit drying.
O: Drinkable but not very enjoyable. Will have to see how this compares to their lager offering for determining the best cheapest beer.

Pours gold coloured and crystal clear, not no head to speak of. The smell is all biscuit. The taste is also all biscuit. This is a bare bones basic beer and is priced accordingly

Poured from a 473ml can.

Decent appearance with full white head but taste is sweet adjuncts and very off putting. Tastes fake and manufactured, not sure how someone can go through a whole can of this.

Good cheap beer for Canada.

This one of the last independent brewers. Please support the little guy!! Without them we only lower the competition and our selection ultimately.

A- Golden goodness- Beer!

S- Beerie goodness

T- Typical North American beer flavor

M- Same as above!

O- Good cheap beer

Thx for reading

A - Pours a pale golden colour, no head and no lacing.

S - Sweet corn, grains, apple juice and a bit of honey on the finish.

T - Same as the nose, sweet corn, grainy malts, lots of apple juice with a hint of sour cider, and corn syrop on the finish.

M - Thin and watery with a wet finish.

O - There's a reason this is $1.85 a tall can. Nothing special here, not worthy and a waste of a twoonie.
