L - Yellow, lots of carbonation and no head to be found after a couple seconds.

S - It was near impossible to find any smell at all. What I did find was some corn and grain scents.

T - very, very corny. No hops to be found. Bit sweet for my liking of what it is. It's crisp in a way, and carries mostly just the flavours of corn and some wheat or grain somewhere? It's all hard to reach. Not much imprint. The finish is almost metallic with corn. Not great.

F - It's smooth, but there's a lot of carbonation and not much else to say about it. I could chug it easily, and it doesn't feel like much going down. Very light, and too light for it's taste.

O - This is better than some of the other mass produced light beers and such. It feels like it could be better marketed as a "light" pale ale. It's just another one of these many mass produced North American beers and not much different than any others. If you got nothing else you can do worse, but if you're picking it up to drink something that stands out a bit, you could do so with taste. No go for me.

Appearance: well I like the colour of the can it came in.
Smells like corn chips.
Tastes like any industrial lager
Mouth feel....none

I wanted some AAL and I wanted it to be cheap. This was both. Not spectacular, but I've paid more for worse beer

Delicious delicious corn - yummy yummy yum. Pleased to see a separate thread for this inferior local -ish approximation of a inferior AAL in the first place. All the better to praise this corn bomb.

It tastes more like the aluminum that it comes packaged in than beer. This is a beer that a blacked out college kid would refuse when given for free, it's actually that awful. Labatt should be ashamed.

I enjoy a rolling rock over the AAL lights but i have to admit its not at all special. I was always told it was the poor mans Heineken.
Look: As stated on the label pale straw/light gold.
Smell: Water and corn a little skunk.
Taste: Water extremely inoffensive although if served cold its very refreshing on a hot day.
Feel: Carbonation, pure carbonation goes down like water.
Overall I love this beer for a long drinking day but it is certainly nothing special. Still i enjoy it better than a Bud/Busch light though they are quite similar.
