Had a tall can at a pub in Calgary's Kensington area, on a whim. Pours a watery pale/just this side of light yellow shade with ample carbonation. Very aggressively carbonated adjunct lager, so much so that the bubbles burnt my lips a little. Initially aroma notes were perfumy and bright, but this quickly moved to a wet grain and corn sugar character that one might expect in such a beer. In all honestly though, this beer smells like little except fizzy water. The taste is a bit more robust than the smell and includes the expected wet grainy malt, DMS cooked vegetable, and a residual sweetness (despite the "super dry" moniker), along with a tart yogurt acidity and a little peppery spice. Metallic notes and a rubbing alcohol astringency emerge in the finish along with hints of grass. I'd say the finish is indeed pretty clean and crisp as the bubbles scrub the palate of the sweet/cooked flavors. If one is going to judge this beer for what it is, its probably a potent thirst quencher on a hot day and in the right frame of mind could prove to be rather refreshing. Don't look here if you seek complex fresh malt flavors, hops, or anything else associated with craft workmanship.
