12oz bottle, at Pizza Brew in Calgary.

This beer pours a somewhat hazy, medium golden yellow colour, with one finger of weakly foamy, and mostly bubbly dirty white head, which leaves a few specks of islet lace around the glass as it quickly burns off.

It smells of rancid butter, turned corn mush, paint thinner, and little else. The taste is musty corn and rice cakes, diacetyl up the yin yang, stale yeast, a touch of plastic phenols, and a dry, non-hop oriented mustiness.

The bubbles are pretty low-key, barely registering on any level, the body medium-light in weight, and way more pithy than smooth. It finishes semi-sweet, the corniness sort of apologetic, but hardly making up for the lingering musty plastic notes.

Another Minhas contract brew, where they seemingly just rename one (I'm not about to investigate which) of their large stable of skanky adjunct lagers. This time, it appears to be one whose corners are thoroughly and duly ravaged.

Sampled tonight on 4/29/14. Found this bottle for $1.79 last week. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner flute glass.

Pours a pale straw yellow in color with about a 1/2-finger white fizzy head that settles down to just along the sides of the glass. Very little spotty lacing is seen. The aroma is of grains and sweet corn. The taste is grains upfront followed by very sweet corn flavor. Very surprised with the sweet corn taste which is different. Lots of carbonation as small streaming bubbles were rising from the bottom of the glass. Actually very easy to drink.

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high bright white head that died down, leaving a very large patch of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of corn adjuncts are present in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is mostly filled with flavors of corn adjuncts and has a light amount of associated sweetness. Slight hints of grainy malts are also perceptible. No bitterness is noticeable.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn't that bad for an adjunct lager and doesn't have any "off" flavors.
