Had one of these over at the CBC.
Pours a clear deep golden color with a nice white head. No lace.
Smells clean. Malty with some hops.
Tastes decent. Malty and slightly hopy and maybe a little tart.
Okay mouthfeel also. Light to medium bodied.
A decent brew to have with lunch.

Consumed at brewery, 03/03/08.

Crystal clear beer. No bubbles at all. Tiny ring of foam around glass edges. Light honey color.

Aroma of weak macro lager. After warming, aroma turned candied-sugar: very sweet.

Served a bit warmer than I'm used to, which was a good thing.

Restrained malt character. Lightly sweet with lemon nuances. Long after the beer is gone, a corn flavor appears on the palate.

Lurking in the background is a flavor of charcoal or ashes: did the brewmaster put out a cigarette in my beer?

Flavor became more citric and sweeter as beer warmed up. Ashes disappeared. Very mild hop sipciness also appears with higher temp.

Mouthfeel was a little thick with some chewiness, oddly enough.

Despite the improvement the higher temp brought, I'll still pass on having this one again.
