Poured a 341-ml bottle into a tall tulip glass.
Appearance - golden yellow colour with very little head, some surface bubbles as a result of the moderate carbonation.
Smell - sweet-smelling creamy malt scents with vanilla, with fresh shortbread in there as well.
Taste - decent flavour strength of pure malt, lasting not quite long enough. Sweet indeed, with limited spice or citrus inclusion.
Mouthfeel - smooth and balanced, what it lacks in complexity it makes up with the stable flavour profile.
Drinkability - I could definitely have a few of these. Decent taste, reasonably refreshing. A good pint.

Pint on tap at a Calgary pub. Color is somewhere between bright yellow yellow and light amber, with some large white bubbles that broke relatively quickly. Effervescent and fizzy, with a meager aroma of grain husks, light toffee and vanilla, vaguely sweet and with a hint of noble-type hop spice. Palate is similar, grainy and dry with a little buttered bread sweetness, hints of vanilla, a little chewy but basically drinks like a macro-brewed lager. Not a fabulous offering from Mill St.... Coarse and haggard, does nothing to earn the "stock ale" moniker. Might be a decent starter craft brew for the trepidation-fueled lager drinker.
