2.45/5 rDev +0.8%
355ml can - Edmonton, AB company, Stateside production - now why does that sound so familiar? I actually participated in a pre-release taste test of three different sample brews, the point being to help this marketing firm choose their production offering.
This beer pours a clear, piss-like colour (like when you've been drinking water all afternoon), with two fingers of thin foamy bone-white head, which leaves some decent random creeping ivy lace around the glass as it settles. It smells of mild cracker/cereal grain, and sulfurous, cooked veggies. The taste is pale malt, a weird dull metallic essence, and sour, soapy, woody hops. The carbonation is average, the body medium-light, and fairly clammy. It finishes with a strong drying push, somewhat unpleasant musty flavours the most evident culprit.
Mountain Crest continues to pull one over on Albertan beer drinkers from their Calgary base. Leave it to an Edmonton outfit to attempt a smaller-scale imitation. Lots of promise, so little payoff. If I remember correctly from the focus tasting, my evaluation was 'none of the above', so of course they pushed this crap through to market...

Can from trade, Thanks Doug.
Puts a clear pale gold lager in the glass. rocky 2 finger cap, modest retention and lacing.
Aroma is 2 dimensional but clean; bready malts over mild herbal hopping maybe a touch of of musty lemon peel.
mild biscuit malts in front, some detectable herbal-woody hops fast clean finish with a citrus snap at the end.
Although this lager is mild it has some Dortmunder helles character to it and it tastes like a gristed malt beer....good value if it markets at the same price as the national brands.

Two finger off white head which soon dissipates. Bubbly pale straw colour. Some lacing. An odd metallic smell. Corn taste up front with an odd aftertaste. Soapy mouthfeel. Medium body. Clingy. Drinkability was not that good. A step up from BMC but not much.

Dark amber, decent head, so-so retention, no lacing.
musty sourness, grainy malts.
slight malt vinegar sourness followed by some metallic grain. Bland middle followed by light hop bitterness and finishes with a very clingy, annoying metallic astringency on the tongue
Carbonation doesn't hold up and the finish overpowers everything else.
Can't remember what I paid for 6 of these. I hope for Kohler's sake they priced this cheap because for most it's gonna be 1 and done. Looks like I have some meat tenderizer for BBQ season.
