look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

473 ml can served cold into a pint glass. Purchased from LCBO for 2.35 CDN.

Appearance - clear pale golden color with a finger and a half of white head which recedes quickly and coalesces into a small white cap. Some effervescent bubbles rise from the centre of the glass.

Smell - weak grainy aroma. Some metallic mustiness in there to which is odd. Not a great smelling beer.

Taste - kinda like the nose, not much other than mild grains and a slight bit of bitterness. Really mild and pretty much an AAL crossed with and EIPA. There's just not much else there.

Mouthfeel - medium light body and soft carbonation. Would like a more lively mouthfeel.

Overall- pretty bland beer, lacking the crispness that good examples of the style usually have. I used to think this was a pretty good beer, and while inoffensive, there's not much exciting or different about this one. Still goes down easy enough on the first hot and humid day of 2014.
