Appearance: pours a thin head that recedes quickly. Lots of streaming carbonation and bubbles clinging to the sides of the glass. Color is a deep golden. Mild lacing.
Aroma: rich aroma of toasted malt, a bit of grassiness and some hop spice. Very pleasant aroma. Mouthfeel: slightly heavier than most lagers, has a fullness in the mouth feel, almost some wine like characteristics. Finish is dry.
Flavor: nice combination that mirrors the aroma. Toasted white bread, some grassy flavors, and some mild lingering hop bitterness.

poured into my Blue Moon pilsner glass and immediately got 9 inches of head. I mean foam. waited. then poured some more. I can smell corn. frothy head. not special in any regard. why do I do this to myself? I have a cellar full of really good stuff and yet I buy this turd, and others.... it said "all malt" so I was intrigued.... it 'piqued' my curiosity... wish it were only 12 oz instead of this.... holy crap this can is 22oz!!!
first drink is bland, bitter, sweet, corn-y. immediately tells my brain to order pizza. now I know why- bland bread carbs to wipe out nasty taste... but hey! everyone gave them a 75 in the ratings! that's better than the other swill I have left. I ought to just switch over to whiskey now while i'm still in a good mood...

wait! "brewed and canned in Ontario Canada...." WTF??? darned Canadians.,....
