500ml can, day 5 of the Costco Canada 2014 Beer Advent calendar.

This beer pours a clear, very pale golden straw, um, 'colour', with four fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and somewhat bubbly off-white head, which leaves some sparse "I'd like to teach the world to sing" holding hands lace around the glass as it quickly wafts off.

It smells of bready, grainy cereal malt, a bit of indistinct warm citrus (lemon, maybe?), faint petrol phenols, and earthy, leafy, and mildly grassy hops. The taste is pretty much in line - a slightly less engaging grainy breadiness, wet breakfast cereal, ethereal tart citrus esters, tame gasohol, and a less than enthralling earthy, weedy, and dead floral hop bitterness.

The carbonation is fairly active in its alternating fizzy and frothy manifestations, the body medium-light in weight, and moderately smooth, with a wee clamminess arising as it warms. It finishes mostly dry, the crackery malt holding fast, while the middling noble hops do little more than sniff around.

Not a particularly memorable version of the style, for good and bad reasons alike, but I suppose it's drinkable, especially given the lower ABV, its participation in the 'stored away' effects of the Advent calendar, and that typical German lager center of the road nature.
