The third annual iteration of the Alberta Unity Brew project, this time hosted at Big Rock Brewery in Calgary. A pint at Beer Revolution.

This beer appears a glassy, tarnished golden hue, with two fingers of creamy offwhite head, which renders a broken landscape of painted lace around the glass in its wake. It smells of faint sweet fruity grain, and mild earthy hops. The taste is pale malt, a bit of sweet cereal grain, some mild earthy fruitiness, and even shier leafy, weedy hops. The carbonation is moderate, and generally unobtrusive, the body medium-light in weight, and smooth, but for a subtle metallic edge. It finishes off-dry, the malt gaining an agreeable oily nuttiness, amidst the tame, honesty-keeping hops.

While rather unassuming, and well, dull, at first, this kind of grew on me. Overall, a beer designed by committee, is what I take away from this (or maybe it's just the Big Rock aura looming large).
