    Im not sure I needed to try this to know what it tastes like. One of those ones at the store that you never buy and never think of buying, because you know you will goto a barbecue one day and someone will be drinking this and I will say, "Hello, can I try your beer?" And they say yes, and then you do and you go "Oh, that's exactly how I thought it would taste." This is that brew, and that is what I did, and now I will never have again. See other reviews for tasting notes. They are mostly all similar, though I don't know about the "soft water", but hey, all our palates are different.

    Had this on tap a couple of times a Fatburger (!), not a likely beer serving place but you can't beat the price and thank God it isn't a "Molson house" like so many otgher licensed lunch places. Not all that crazy for lagers, this like most others looks too light in colour and precious little aroma. Flaavour, mouthfeel and finish were all about average, but at least better than a Canadian would've been. I'd drink this one again.

    Having tasted Whistler glacier water right at the source and having sampled the original black tusk brews made with it, I have to say this carries on in that tradition of brewing with super soft water. The water gives a unique softness to the overall palate and mouth feel. It also accents the hops and gives the malts their clean breadyness. Tasty, soft on the tongue decently hopped, unique and definitely ’premium". An unexpected surprise seeing how the beer has been panned by the hop free-baser cult.

    Pours a clear gold with a small off white cap that fades quickly to a thin layer. Aroma is grains and hops. Flavour has a slight sweet caramel/toffee hint to it with some hops aswell. Thin to medium mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Wont buy again.

    The bottle I had looks more like an I&G bottle than the one in the picture. A clear golden lager with a frothy white head that disappears at the first sign of air. Grainy is the order of the day in both the taste and the aroma. Nothing to write home about.

    The beer poured a clear dark gold colour with reddish hues,and a thin white cap. The aroma was cereal malt, with some hops. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The taste was grainy malt, some hoppish bitterness...and was quite refreshing. Better than 99% of macro lagers

    Came in a 6-pack at the LCBO and enjoyed the first four bottles at a jam. Was pretty decent, and now testing it in a glass. Pours a clean golden colour with lots of carbonation (bigger bubbles than average on the side and bottom of the glass). Big creamy-foam white head that stays a while and leaves beautiful lace. The malty nose is much stronger than normal swill beers, so that is a good start, with notes of bread. Crisp mouthfeel with a mix of sweet malt and biscuit malt (that is pretty tame), and has the hop showing up in the aftertaste. The flavour gets better as the brew warms up a bit. A much better lager than most mass-produced products, that is not offensive for drinkers of those beers.

    Warning sign number one clear individually sold bottle, warning sign number two has the word export in the title, no good can come of these two things. Beer looks very good for a lager body seems to be yellowy dull gold and very clear with a very thick creamy half inch cap. Sticky lacing totally coating the sides of my glass I’ve never seen a lager do this before, ten minuets in and the half inch head is still there. Aroma is living up to the title of export loads of metallic sweet grains, this is way too sweet and has a very mild aroma it’s hard to detect, I’m even noticing some alcohol is this aroma why? How? On the first sip this seems way to sweet and almost fake tasting but still somehow drinkable. Lots of fakly sweet malts are in this but not even the smallest hint of hops can be noticed. Beer feels very full and smooth especially for a lager, it’s almost like drinking milk. There is a very out place watermelon flavor in the finish and my mouth is left with no after taste but I can tell I just drank something way to sweet. What a odd beer its drinkable but not good by any stretch but there is no way you could call this swill either, I’ll blame the crappiness on the clear bottle and the fact it’s called export.

    Bottle courtesy of Irondjin: Poured a deep golden color lager with a big pure white bubbly head with average retention and some good lacing. Aroma of sweet malt with no adjunct detected. Taste is dominated by some sweet malt with no noticeable hops which could have increase the profile of this beer. Body is average for the style with some good carbonation. Overall, not a bad attempt but lacking some element to makes this truly interesting.

    Poured out a pretty good white cap that has great retention with 1 finger thick remaining the entire time, some bubbly lacing. Hazy yellow gold turning to amber. The aroma starts off dissapointing but improves quite alot during warming. Thick rich bready malts, oranges and a slight spice. Taste is a big let down - the bready malts are ok but the over-the-top tanginess and cirtus totally ruins this for me. Mouthfeel is smooth and nearly over carbonated but the aftertaste is killing me - sourness. Ick. Very sour. I'm hoping that I just got an old 6-pack but now that I'm not chugging them ice cold the true identity of this sub-par brew comes out. I will not buy this again period. Even worse was the incredible price of 13.99$ - good thing it's 'exported' from the province next to mine. Hey, it's even in a wonderful clear bottle...
