Right now, a "glacier fresh beer" sounds like it would hit the spot. Whether this actually is good or not is another story. 11.5 ounce bottle, on to the beer:

A pale shade of brilliant yellow, if that makes any sense. The creamy white head on top holds up pretty well and surprisingly throws up lots of good lace. The aroma has some cooked cereals and some sulfur. It could be worse.

Off-flavors are minimal, but so in the flavor in general. Light doeses of simple esters and dried grass lead the charge of this Western Canadian beer. Also there's a trace of cereals which linger in the aftertaste. The carbonation level is medium-high, and has a refreshing character. Quite clean overall.

On the bland side of flavor, and also lacking nasty off-flavors so commonly found in macro lager. This would be good to quench any thoughless thirst; that isn't much of a compliment, but better that than nothing.

This is a beer that is always offered to me whenever I am in the Northwest. It is pretty much the local Coors. The beer itself is a run of the mill kind of beer that does not offer much taste as it feels very watery. The color is amber and pours a big head that disappears in a hurry. This is the type of beer you drink at a barbecue with friends when you do not want to give much thought about you favorite hopped beverage.
