1.93/5 rDev -2.5%
look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5
Appearance: A sadly uninspired brassy yellow that did produce two fingers of head that disappeared like a ninja, as I looked away from the beer and it was gone. Steady, albeit thin carbonation in the body though.
Smell: A slight note of corn, and maybe a bit of straw and that's it. Not really a lot to go on and of course warming didn't assist.
Taste: There's both a metallic and hard water taste to this one that permeates the entire brew. It's subdued though, but then again so are all the other flavours. Some brief sweet corn and straw and... that's it. I honestly wish there was something more I could say. There's nothing too offensive, but there just is so little here.
Mouthfeel: Slowly but surely the metallic taste builds and starts to cling. The carbonation is doing it's best to bring out what is there, but it just doesn't work. Not much in the way of an aftertaste, so I guess that's a blessing.
Drinkabilty: It's alright...I guess. At least it doesn't come across as too watered down, but I still wouldn't want to drink this all night. The metal really comes out, if you drink it too fast, which kinda defeats the purpose of what is clearly a guzzler beer.
Final Thoughts: Yeah...this beer advertises itself as smooth, but really it's anything but. This is a cheap beer which even by discount standards, is quite sub par. If you are on a budget in Ontario, Carling or Maclean's are both vastly superior to this stuff. You'll want to pass.
