Canadia: like Australia but cold and wet.
The beer states it is made from Canadian water, prairies and barley. It tastes as distinctively Canadian as a generic lager can i.e. not at all.
That stuff’s even worse than Labatt’s Blah!

Well, it probably tastes as Canadian as anything really can, given that (as we all know) It’s a completely fictitious place.
“I’ve drunk those bottles of Budweiser that they make with the labels saying “Molson Lager”. I’ve talked to Canadianists. I’ve even been to see a pretend game of “hockey on ice” in the ice rink in “Toronto”, an American town to which I have been more than half a dozen times in different seasons. [ . . . ] I respectfully suggest, indeed, that I am more familiar with the arguments for the existence of Canada than most Canadians are familiar with the arguments against. I’m just not convinced.”

Oh yeah. Canada, like Australia, is completely mythical.
I don’t believe in a lot of the states, either. Rhode Island? It’s a joke that got out of hand. Idaho? I don’t think so. North and South Dakota? A map maker’s joke. I mean, supposedly they have a mountain with a bunch of presidents carved into it. Who buys that? I certainly don’t.
Well, having described Winnipeg as Minneapolis but smaller and colder (and lately seedier), I’m not sure what evidence I can provide you that I or anything else Canadian is real. Even pointing out that I am safely free of Trump as president could sound like a leftist’s desperate delusion, though rather than desperate it’s mostly just relieved.
But North Dakota is definitely real. Not so sure about South Dakota, though. I always feel it should be like the Virginias, and be Dakota and North Dakota.
North Dakota real? I’m sorry, I’ve seen Fargo.
Winnipeg is real; just part of Minnesota. I’m still mad at the waitress in Jack Astor’s or Milestones or whatever crappy chain restaurant it was who skimmed my credit card when I went there on a business trip.
Ah, high school.
I’m pretty sure most Canadians don’t think Molson Canadian is anything but a generic lager, either.
I think I remember remembering having remembered Molson’s Canadian Lager. I’m pretty sure. Maybe.
The absence of a comma in Cam’s review’s concluding sentence leads me to ask: How Canadian does a generic lager can taste?
This is a comma optional blog – they just appear where they like 🙂
