500 ml can purchased from LCBO. Served cold into pint glass. Revisiting this as I happened to see it and wasn't sure if I had tried it before or not.

Appearance - Nice clear golden / honey brown colored beer. 2 finger head rests on top and has decent retention time but very little in the way of foam is ultimately retained. Virtually no lacing left behind. Plenty of effervescent bubbles.

Smell - Sweet and malty although muted and very little else. Slightly vegetative. Hoping that this isn't indicative of the quality.

Taste - Rather sweet with some nice caramel maltiness. Wish there was more bitterness, to counteract it. Kind of a nasty alcohol and sugary combination to finish if the beer is anything other than ice cold. Other than that it tastes pretty clean and refreshing.

Mouthfeel - Fairly lively carbonation, medium-light bodied and a pretty non-descript finish.

Overall - Definitely not terrible and the alcohol is virtually imperceptible (when cold) but otherwise not terribly exciting.
