    pours a clear pale yellow with a meager sized white head that left behind a surprisingly good amount of lace. The aroma was of mild grains and slight whisps of hops and ever so slight scent of fruit. The taste was just like the aroma, consisting of mild grains, light hops, and ever so slight fruit notes. Crisp and clean finish. The mouthfeel was very light with a pretty considerable amount of carbonation.

    I noticed the can in the picture and I have never ever seen this in a can. It's a typical Canadian light lager which tastes like watered down Canadian. Best avoided.

    This is beer flavoured water. I'[ve had it a few times, and it's always flatter than a pita. Colour - pale yellow. Aroma - none. Mouthfeel - watery. Flavour - weakly beery. Overall - inoffensive and wofrthy of avoiding.

    I had this at the local pub, i was so unethusased i didn't even spit out my gum. That being said, while still standard Canadian swill I liked it better then it's normal brother. Less of the skunkiness that makes up the aftertaste of normal Canadian. Other then that, pretty average.

    I got this brew in a mixed Canadian beer twelver at the local gas station. The aroma is typical with some weak hops coming through as well as some sweetness and grain. The appearance is a very pale golden yellow with a nice head on top with good retention and is very carbonated and bubbly and a white in color. The mouthfeel is very light-bodied and a bit boring with some wettness on the palate. The flavor is grainy, malty, sweet, with extremely faint hoppiness and is very bland and very unoffensive. Overall, nothing special at all and is Canada's Bud Light.

    Came in a Christmas pack with a bottle of Molson Canadian (not light) and a big tall glass (with a Ottawa Senators logo on it). Pours a nice light golden colour with a medium white head. Retention is poor, but some lacing is found. The nose is quite full, with malt. Watery mouthfeel that is crisp with hardly any aftertaste. Taste of corn is really present, but at least there is taste to this light beer. Real close to the original Molson Canadian (which is what I am about to rate), just lighter ABV. Beats the hell out of Busch Light.

    As far as light beers go, this isn't the worst. Doesn't have a whole lot flavor, good or bad, and unlike Bud Light this does leave a trace amount of lacing. Not much but it's something. Definately better than Bud or Corona's light beers. But what's the point? I'd much rather have a full bodied ale than this.

    Pours yellow-colored clear...thin head with large bubbles, disappears quickly, leaving a bubbly ring on top. Effervescence is almost non-existent. Aroma is not bad for a light beer...slightly malty and fruity. Mouthfeel is VERY thin and SUPER watery...not very good. Flavor is somewhere between corn and (slightly) carbonated water (nothing offensive, just nothing period). Clean, dry finish...of course! Okay for a light beer I guess. Not a beer I will go to Canada for (or the convenience store down the street for that matter)!

    Not the greatest of beers, but I have to admit it is better than many light beers. The appearance is a nice golden color and the flavor isn't watery like many light beers can be.
