    I've had this a couple of times, a friend brings it back with him from the Maritimes. Colour - pale yellow, white head. Aroma - skunky. Mouthfeel - almost watery. Flavour - thin malty. Overall - decent.

    Newfie beer, and not a very good one. As a typical Molson's product - it is swill - Newfie style. Pale gold in colour, watery, grainy aroma, and grainy flavour. Not much else to say!

    This is a fine macro swill brewed by Molson. It's a pale gold colour with a white head and very little aroma. The flavour is rather bland and not very memorable.

    Bright gold brew with an off white cap, really good lacing, a good ammount of carbs and some unfiltered floaties. Aroma was pretty stinky, like cheap grainy malts, barley, lawn and some sweetness. Overall it's pretty much in line with other cheap Canadian brews. Taste was malty and dry with some yeast. You can notice some chemicals and a small ammount of hops. Medium bodied with a somewhat rough feel with some sour bitterness in the middle. Ends dry. I don't mind this beer one bit.

    joy. getting to try this beer, in can no less. meh. poured with big bubble head that didn't last at all. colour is a light gold. doesn't really smell like much at all. taste boasts the same. some light malts. 'bout it. i can see this beer maybe being just good enough to pound back and get drunk on.

    Golden yellow body with a thin white cap produced during the poor but was gone in just a few seconds, just looks like you everyday average beer. Weak smelling malts, and wow after the first sniff all sent has disappeared nothing can be detected, but at least no smell is better then a bad one. Old tasting beer, all malt kinda stale, some chemicals, with a massive bread after taste. It’s a drinkable beer nothing great, and since I got for free it was worth the money.

    Made by Molson Canada, but "Brewed only in Newfoundland with pure Newfoundland water" proudly on the label. Pours from the can a thin and clear yellow color, there was a bit of a white head, but, oh it's gona already. Looks like any other average macro-type beer does. Not a lot of smells come off this one, again very typical smell of said beers. Taste is good, clean, lager-like. Easy to drink, just don't expect more - it is what it is. Better than other cheap macro lagers, but not much more. No skunking or sour aftertaste like some other Molson products. It fits the bill as "it tastes like beer should."

    Hey an east coast macro that's all malt!! Still has macro blandness but a passable quaff with a bucket of mussels. Pale gold smallish white cao stays as a surface lace some lace on the glass. Aroma of grains and sweetness. Mild dose of sweet malts up front attenuated hops ride in the back until the finish where a surprising light burst of nobel hops cut the sweet bready taste. A fair macro lager...probably the best and few all grain macro lagers in the east.

    nothing exciting about this pale, pretty straight forward, not really meant for tasting purposes not too many smells or flavours present. but for getting drunk purposes it'll do the job just fine. re-review with a little detail... pours a golden color with a white fomay head that lasted only for a minute of so... some sweet malty smell and a weak malty taste... nothing good about this beer... more newfie swill but it is drinkable..

    when i came back from nova scotia in 1993, i brought a 12 of black horse back w/ me. an average lager, but still very good, and highly drinkable. so flash forward to 1997, and the best college bar in the city, mickey finn's, starts carrying black horse on tap. well lucky for me i was living downtown at the time amd was a regular at finn's as this beer was great on tap. again nothin that's going to win awards, but very tasty and hihgly drinkable. alas, mickey finn's moved locales, became an irish pub, and stopped selling black horse. pity.
