Good and drinkable for the money. Much better than comparable beers at this price.

Bought a 12 pack from Southtown Beverages for $ 8.99 on 3/8/14. Poured into a large tumbler, served cold.

Appearance: pale gold yellow with one finger pure white head. Active streams of bubbles.

Smell: a little musty, faint spicy hoppiness.

Taste: Taste is mild and inoffensive, not overly sweet.

Mouthfeel: decent for a macro lager.

Overall: easy drinking, cheap.

Update - September 2, 2015.
Tried this a couple years ago, but didn't do a full review, doing one now. 473 ml can served ice cold into a pint glass. A leftover from a party last weekend.

Appearance - very pale thin watery color. Lots of visible carbonation in the crystal clear beer. Impressive three fingers of head with decent retention.

Smell - light aroma, plenty of grain, with a little spiciness.

Taste - light flavours, some graininess, slight flavor of stale bread.

Mouthfeel - smooth with a light body, modest carbonation after the initial spurge. Medium finish.

Overall - decent and reasonably taste cheap lager, nothing to write home about but for a MolsonCoors product, it's reasonably good. Not great for the style, but any adjuncts aren't really noticeable.

From the 12 fl. oz. can stamped: MAR0413-E08071051. Sampled on June 25, 2013

The pour is pale yellow with a rich, white head that lingers to the end.

The aroma is forward with grainy and pilsener malts, sweetness, and a Euro malt cleanliness. I don't pick up adjuncts myself.

The body is light and smooth.

The taste is also grainy and malty up front in a moderate way with a light bite at the end to balance it all off. It is fairly easy to quaff.
