Completely solid Canadian style adjunct. I've written about this in the past, and I think that Canadian adjuncts should be considered the own sub-category, although I'm far too illiterate to explain what exactly that would entail. I do know, however, that the majority of Canadian adjuncts I've had that aren't sold stateside (Molson Export, Labatt 50, etc) have a richer flavor and creamier body than most American adjuncts, with even loss hop presence than their American counterparts and a warmer embrace of cereal nodes.

This is a good example of the style, though not as good as Labatt 50 or Molson Ex. Firm cereal start, crisp and lightly sour middle, light finish with a creamy body throughout.

I don't know where this falls into the (sub/super)-Premium tier of the Ontario beer market, or if such a tiering system even exists outside of the US, but I'd say this would compete well against the Pabst/Bud/Coors segment of the American market. If you absolutely despise macros, then of course you wouldn't like this (and I don't see why you'd bother to rate it).

An awful tasteless and bland beer. Don't waste your money on it.

Solid adjunct. Crisp and refreshing. A bit more tart overall than the usual adjunct parade. Decent mouthfeel/body. Smell is pure roasted corn. Great citrusy aftertaste. Again -- nothing special -- but decent enough to go into the rotation.
