Golden orange colour, not much head less than 1 finger that dissapated within 2 or 3 minutes. Barely any lacing

If you take into account the price of this beer at LCBO (1.95 at purchase) it makes up for the lack of distinct flavors. Its more malty than hoppy and there isnt much carbonation.

Its a bit sweet on the tip and end, not overly bitter. It makes a great beer to bring to a gathering or party due to the price and drinkability of this beer. Its in the price range of the cheap stuff but far ahead of any of it.

If price did not matter I would not buy as there is better beer out there. But the price allows me to drink a beer worth drinking when on a budget, its worth your pocket change to buy something for a party.

Pours clear golden with good bubbly off-white head, retention is ok, some laces are present, but all quickly dissipates. Smell is clean, malty, rather sweet. Taste is full malty, slightly chalky, bitterness is weak, definitely lack of hops. Low carbonation, the beer loses all gases before being imbibed. Dull.

500 ml can served cold into a pint glass. Purchased from LBCO for $1.95 CDN. Advertised as 5.5% ABV.

Appearance - Clear, rich golden color with 1.5 fingers of white head with pop-like retention time (not very long). A few bubbles rise to the top and no lacing to speak of.

Smell - Grassy aroma with a bit of a a dank earthiness. Nothing exciting but the earthiness is a bit of a different dimension.

Taste - Grassy with some artificial-like sweetness before transitioning to a dry dirt-like bitterness. For whatever reason, this works for me, despite the fact that it sounds unappealing.

Mouthfeel - Low carbonation and soft feel with light body.

Overall - Decent beer for the style and affordable. Would purchase on occasion again in the future.
