The point is that it's a lager, and lagers are pretty much by design light on taste. They're the girly beers.
People who say things like that usually have pyschological problems with gender identity.
For your information most beer is brewed with a bottom fermenting yeast; and all beers are aloud to 'lager' after the yeast has been purged.
Actually, when I say "girly beers" I am trying to be historically accurate.
The US used to have some really fine beers but that changed during WWII when a good portion of the men were shipped overseas and women were then employed in non-traditional roles. Breweries at the time found their market had changed from mostly male to mostly female. As a result, they changed to brewing the lighter tasting lagers to match the tastes of women. Lagers, because of the yeast and the way they are brewed leave less esters in beers which means they have less "taste" so to speak because esters, in the right mix, provide desirable taste characteristics found in ales.
Beyond that, Canadian breweries, with some notable exceptions, are pretty timid about their brewing. I think part of this is the tax factor in Canada that makes beer, even cheaply made beer, very expensive. Making expensive brews would take beer in Canada from expensive to ridiculous.
