Ratings (1-10 scale) and notes:
Aroma: 2 (not much at all)
Appearance: 4 (fair color, decent head)

Price/Value: 6 (at $5.29/6 pack, on par with domestics)

Not bad, but there are other imported Canadian beers out there I'd rather spend my money on. I know this is a staple of Canada like Grizzly Bears and Mounties, but it's hard to discern what the fuss is over.
I'd Drink It When: I was actually in Canada. It's inexpensive, but one can do better unless you're trying to fit in. If you brought this to a party, people would laugh. Trust me.
