look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Surprised to find this @ a Coop gas bar/liquor store in Dunmore, Ab of all places.

Aprocot/amber colour, decent head and lacing.

Sweet bready/toasted malts. Not a surprise given 5 malt varieties are used.

What do you you? Malts dominate the taste profile. Toasted and sweet with that mineral water hardness that is so notable in their Boston Lager. Hops are there only in the background and lend a slightly dry finish to all the malt sweetmess.

Feel starts quite full and then migrates quickly to rather thin.

Not sure the Germans have much to worry about here. Nice, but the malty sweetness and rather bland overall taste get tired quickley
