24 ounce can into lager glass, best before 6/11/2018. Pours crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of cracker, corn, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Touch of fruity/yeasty notes in the aromas, but not overwhelming. Nice and pleasant aromas with pale malt/corn and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, corn, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness. Mild herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, corn, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, and mild herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness of pale malt/corn and light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Very clean on lager flavors, with minimal fruity/yeasty notes present. Lightly increasing dryness from lingering bitterness. Medium carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. A bit thin, but not watery. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a good adjunct pale lager style. All around good robustness of pale malt/corn and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Nicely flavorful for the style. Clean pale malt/grains and mild earthy hop balance. A nicely enjoyable offering, and well made style example.

This has been my regular weekend beer to get drunk on for about two decades. It tastes good, it's refreshing, and inexpensive. It's not the best or my favorite beer, but it's far from the worst and when it comes down to spending as little money as possible for half-way decent non-light beer, Canadian is the choice.

This is exactly what I look for in an american style. You can clearly taste a little malt and hops which is unusual for this style. This is what american beer should taste like imo. It's light, fizzy, very thirst quenching, not too heavy, and has a good real beer flavor. Buy this.

Very good AAL. Tastes full bodied and crisp and goes down very smooth. Nothing too earth shattering about this beer but it does it's job well and a very good price. Much better than Budweiser and the like.

A good AAL, I don't know if it's worth the "imported" price around here, though. Wish I could find it in the cans.

Decent beer if you want something cheap and uncomplicated. I have it as a beer for guests for something different than the standard Australian beers.

Possibly my favorite Canadian beer, which doesn't say much. Typical party beer. Great for watching the game. Tastes a little on the flat side but that makes it easier to get it into ya.
