I have few things to say about this beer.
And what few things I have to say are not positive.

1. This beer is terribly dehydrating to drink. Possibly due to its flavour. Not refreshing at all.

2. Unless you love the taste of liquefied cheese, do not let this beer warm up past ice cold.
Trust me.

In short:
Unless you're holding a cheese tasting party, and want to offer a liquid alternative, DON'T BUY THIS BEER!

A: Unappetizing pale straw liquid with minimal head.

S: Lemon, grass and earthy noble hops and metal.

T: Sweet corn taste with metallic flavors and lemon and grass.

M: Thin viscosity and a low level of carbonation.

O: A regrettable beer that has no redeeming qualities other than the alcohol content and cheap price. The hobos choice.

355ml can, a gift/leftover from a recent hipster party I was dragged to by my uni-adjacent girlfriend.

This beer pours a clear, very pale golden straw colour, with two skinny fingers of weakly bubbly, thin soapy dirty white head, which leaves not a speck of lace in the vicinity of the glass as it quickly melts away.

It smells rather weakly of a gritty rice/corn sweet graininess, hard water, and mildly skunky, dead leafy, herbal, er, 'hops'. The taste is sweet husky rice grain, pithy corn mash, a touch of faintly skunky and herbal bitterness, and well, bumpkis else.

The carbonation is average, as in weakly frothy for a spell, and then more or less absent, the body quite lightweight, and somewhat clammy in its workaday smoothness. It finishes on the sweet side, moderated only by a mildly harsh, drying, nondescript acridity.

As this was exchanged with a fellow party-goer (the beer I gave him was certainly better than this, ah well), in the interest of sharing beer knowledge - I'm duly glad that I got only the one. An average Canadian re-brewed version of average American swill. However, minor extra points are indeed due for the retro-style T & A on the can's label.
