On tap at The Dubliner in Ottawa...
Looks a little better than the average macro bear - more of a darker - maybe honey - color with typical quick and ample carbonation. Head wasn't too bad.
No crap on the nose - it smells very clean - sort of the way I remember Alpine Lager from the Maritimes. No silage from the minimal Saaz hops and adjuncts really shows up on the beak, but...
...the silage does make a grand entrance on the palate, as does a little rice(?) adjunct. Still it's pretty crisp and inoffensive.
This style lends itself to crappy aftertastes, but I don't really get one here. Finish is light as expected.
If it's the only thing around I could session this up pretty easily. Not the end-all by any means but a pleasant surprise for the style.
Serving type: on-tap

A: Pale straw yellow color. Poured a stark white wispy head. Decanted continually. No lacing.
S: Faint sweetness and a little grass. Not much in the nose at all.
T: Muted malt character. Sweet corn adjunct. Crisp, dry and light.
M: Very light body. Ample carbonation. Crisp and dry; very clean by the finish.
D: Very easy to drink. Just not much in the nose and so muted.

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.
