From the bottle:
"Mill Street Stock Ale is a golden export-style ale made from only malt and hops, no fillers or adjuncts."
I actually expected something like a classic Canadian Ale, with a bitter, husky-roughness resulting from the use of native 6-row barley. But... this is nothing like Molson Stock ale.
A: VERY clear, yellowish hue with a white head. Poor head retention, but very nice lacing.
S: A little malt & hops, similar to a macro lager.
T: Bitterness is very well balanced with malt sweetness, leaving a slightly bready flavour.
M: Light body, light-to-moderate carbonation.
D: Very easy to drink. Hopefully this will appeal to some of those macro-lovers!

Tried at Volo, they had it on tap for Gay Pride Week or something. Pours the most bizarre colour, its like a pale pale gold? A little bit of haze, head goes away fast but there was some lacing. Smells like nothing, some sweetness from the malt, but thats it, probably the most bland beer I've smelled. The taste is equally pointless, watered down and basically nothing is discernible other than a little sweetness from the malt. Mouthfeel is pretty thin, the carbonation is medium low. Boo.

This is one vapid boring beer. Way weaker and lamer than the tastey Tankhouse Ale.
It pours from its clear glass bottle a pale straw color, like macro lager. The head has just a little more staying power than a macro lager. The aroma is incredibly weak, some sweetish malt, a bit of distant hay. The taste is equally bland with just a tiny bit of hop bitterness. I know its supposed to be lighter than Tankhouse ale but does it have to taste reminiscent of tap water? This is a lot like a macro lager. Theres no fruitiness or complexity at all. At least it doesnt taste like corn, and its better than Molson Export (which I think its modelled after).
I heard that stock ale was a popular style in Canada (especially Quebec) in the 40s and 50s. It was mellower than pale ales. If this is what they were like, they sucked.
