I had been on the lookout for this one but wasn't interested in a full six pack.. so when I found a single at the LCBO I decided it was time. In hindsight, staying away from a sixer was a great move on my part.
It pours like a macro.. smells like a macro and tastes like one too. This is a fairly sugary drink.. lots of malts up front and very few hops to counterbalance. Fruitiness is lacking as well. Overall the best comparison I can give is Kokanee.
Mouthfeel is average and drinkability poor.. it's just to sweet to want to consume many at a time.

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.
