Default 5 of Diamonds (not what you think)

Found this at the 104 St market in Edmonton last weekend.

Love it...

4.8%? I would have to drink 50 of them to get the same buzz as 48 bud. I’d be bloated. Cool cans though.

When you’re done flatten the can, give it a bend, throw a hook on and see if you can catch a pike

it's really cool that proceeds from it are going to fishing initiatives, but I'm a pretty big beer geek and I'm 99% sure that's going to taste like all the gross swills like Molson/Coors/etc...... Blindman makes a LOT of amazing brews, but this one seems like it'll be a Kokanee twin.

From the colour and probably the flavour I'm thinking UNCLE BEN'S brewery had something to do with this. GAG ME

Might have to try it. So far any Blindman brewing product I have tried has been GROSS. Local company so I will give them another try

A tackle box of these might keep the fish cop writing on his ticket pad

Bought a bunch on the weekend. Hoppier and more flavourful than a "normal" beer. I thought it was pretty tasty and a cool idea to boot.

Blindman Brewing makes great Beer! As a fisherman I have a great appreciation for the marketing on this product.

Regular production. I'm fussy with beer. Not the raised nose kind of fussy......I just like beer without a whole lot of lingering aftertaste. Hate those Belgian/European beers that leave a perfume aftertaste in my mouth.....and I used to consume lots of German beers when I was posted there in the 80s. Coors Light is my style now …………...all this to say that this beer is not Coors Light but it is sufficient for me. If it wasn't for the can and the name I never would have looked twice at it...………..if they got one thing right...………..it's the marketing

It's a Pilsner, so I'm betting there's next to no hop profile in this beer. It's a pretty basic, "yellow" beer, like Kokanee, Canadian, Coors, etc.....but at least it's made locally.

Anyone who doesn't like Blindman products is a crazy person. Their Session Ale is one of the best beers in the province. They consistently win awards and for good reason...

Amen. At the "Half Pints Brew Co" taproom in Winnipeg, they have a water jug in the corner, and it's got a Coors Light tap-handle on it. I love it so much.... #LifeIsTooShortFor****tyBeer
