473ml can, a surprisingly even twoonie at a local likka mart. Disconcerting how a company ran by people of South Asian extraction insist on using crappy white people tropes in their low-brow advertising. Oh, right, because it fucking works (hangs head in shame).

This beer pours a hazy medium golden straw colour, with three fingers of puffy, bulbous eggshell white head, which leaves some decent cobwebbed lace around the glass as it lazily recedes. Huh.

It smells of pale cereal grains, melted plastic, corn sugar, and grassy (of the dead, rotting sort) hops. The taste is sickly sweet, grainy corn mash, like bastardized Corn Flakes, some rather overripe citrus fruitiness, and weedy, floral (those weirdly unpleasant, musty kind) hops.

The bubbles are pretty innocuous, the body a bolstered medium weight, as the corn sugar is well known for such effects, and equally smooth, in a not so small vein straight from brewing and marketing hell. It finishes sweet, weirdly heavy on the booze perception side of things, the cheap-ass malt and hops still lingering, but in a thankfully (I think?) manner.

Gah. Another bottom-shelf malt liquor masquerading as something it is not. Blond ale? Really? Even I am not generally fond of that style, but since it doesn't say 'ale' anywhere on the can, I'm not going to dumb down or muddle the classification any further. As the ABV is generally too low for you know what, well, I cast thee off to AAL purgatory.
