12oz bottle, another contract brew for a brewery that may very well not know what hell they have wrought, even in their marketing-tinged pursuit of the same.
This beer pours a hazy medium golden straw colour, with one finger of puffy, foamy, off-white head, which leaves some decent hopcone-esque webbed lace around the glass as it quick dissolves to nil.
It smells of grainy, bready pale malt, a bit of generic orchard fruitiness, a little nudge of musty honey, some more or less pleasant leafy, earthy hops, and an admittedly weak (like that's a plus) diacetyl-laced Minhas skank factor. The taste is a lot more of the unfortunate but quite honestly forecasted plastic and rancid-butter laden malt - the purported caramel and honey there, sure, but well obfuscated, with a subtle herbal, and leafy OK Liquor liqueur afterthought.
The carbonation is more or less average, the body medium in weight, and quite cloying in its rendering of any actual smoothness. It finishes well off-dry, the adjunct-sullied malt doing no one any favours, and the other players, in the form of cooked veggies and twisted herbal hops, just making things worse in their rather underwhelming ways.
Sigh, another beer re-marketing plan ruined by a single (or more, I don't really fucking know) meeting with the Minhas clan of lovely Calgary, AB, Canada, through the auspices of their Cheesehead country operation. How many styles have so far been co-opted by the skank that is the SOP of this bunch of accountants masquerading as a brewery?

Appearance is a light golden color with white head.
Smell is light malts
Taste was pretty disappointing...wasn't a terrible tasting brew but there's not much to it. Light roasted watery malts and a bit of caramel. It was ok.
Mouthfeel was watery and pretty thin.
Overall, disappointing but not terrible I guess. If offered to me I would probably drink it but I wouldn't personally buy this again.
