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-whit head, which leaves some sparse We are the World holding hands lace around the glass as it quickly wafts off.

It smells of bready, grainy cereal malts, 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 or 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.
