Poured a 500-ml can into a Stella Artois chalice. Chalice rests on a glass Stella Artois coaster.
Appearance - golden straw colour with sudsy lacing up the sides. Moderate carbonation.
Smell - Corn and straw dominate the bouquet here, with some grassy notes thrown in. A great partner for nosing some Scotch - brings back objectivity during an intermission.
Taste - much better from a can than the bottle. More depth to the straw-grassy malt flavours with less overt bitterness than the bottle version. Light waves of a slightly bitter finish continue.
Mouthfeel - peppery up front with smoothing effects along the sides of the mouth just seconds later.
Drinkability - a few cans like this in an evening is never a bad thing, just don't over-do it. The taste and refreshment doesn't go out on this great beer.
