355ml can poured into a Pilsner glass. Pale yellow straw colour with a good inch of foamy head. Smells of corn and grains with a hint of sweetness. Not much of a feel as this is a light lager. Taste is pretty mild and light with hints of grain and adjunct. Taste is what one would expect if a mass produced light lager. Over all a pretty decent light beer for the price. Comparable to the light Canadian macros such as Coors but half the price (here in Alberta anyway)

355ml single can, sold in 8, 15, and 24 packs around here now - wow, a two-four of light lager, the mind still boggles at the idea.

This beer pours a clear, pale, been drinking water all day urine colour, with two flabby fingers of puffy, very loosely foamy, and mostly just bubbly bone-white head, which leaves a few isolated scrapes of specked lace around the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of stale, watery bargain bin (I know, that should be implied) cider, nail polish remover, bland corn husks, rusted intake water pipes, and a plain earthy, weedy bitterness. The taste is semi-sweet corny 'malt', Wonderbread centers, overripe apple mush, a receded acetone astringency, hard water sluicing off of Whitemud Drive, and rather mild, if somewhat sour and dour, leafy, weedy, and skunky hops (this is a can, remember).

The bubbles are quite active and involved in tickling any tastebuds that are still willing to humour this affair, the body medium-light in weight, but not thin or really all that watery, weirdly, which makes an absurd argument for smoothness. It finishes on the sweet side, all corny and saccharine, toothless and sad, like the back alleys these cans will soon litter.

Bleh, not as patently offensive as some other macro light lagers and their 'we protest too hard, don't we?' ilk (I'm looking at you, Brewhouse and Minhas). However, just because I can't recall any real differences between this and the regular lager (other than being cheaped out of 20% of yer booze), doesn't mean that this one-night stand has any sort of legs - now call a cab and piss off already!
