Well, I walked all the way around Skydome and this is the best I could come up with for CAD10 and change. Served in a plastic cup from a beer portable.
It's light, but not as light as a traditional macro - maybe a bit more honey color in there. Carbonation is decent, maybe a little bit of head.
Scent has a lot of Saaz silage in it - along that stewy, spoiled light caramel malt that drives me insane and smacks of corn-feed adjuncts. Nothing special - it's not a macro but it's a little too close for comfort.
Taste profile mirrors the scent - raw, a little adjunct, not too much hop freshness with a slightly bitter aftertaste.
Palate feel - well this is served very cold, but it needs to be. The tinge on the back of the palate gets to be a bit much with warmth, so while Respecting Beer you should toss this one back quickly.
Maybe not for a true English IPA but for a traditional macro it drinks OK. Seriously, though...can't you do better at the ballpark? I didn't see it.
Serving type: on-tap
