look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a beer mug.

Appearance: Pale golden yellow, with a reasonable head that dissipates without too much fuss, lovely lacing.

Smell: It smells almost a bit too sweet, and slightly sharp. Very few grain notes. Any chemist reading this will probably agree that it smells a bit like chloroform.

Mouthfeel: Quite thick, and very smooth, with few pricks from the bubbles. It almost feels like my tongue is being cushioned.

Taste: A bit more bitter than I'd like at the start, but the aftertaste is full of that wonderful, light malt flavour that got me into beer in the first place, and it lasts quite a while too.

Drinkability: I could probably nurse one of these for hours, and wouldn't refuse it for a second if offered under any circumstances. Quite nice overall.

2.8/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Served cold into a pint glass. Purchased at LCBO for $2.10 CDN.

Appearance - Clear straw yellow / golden color. Quite a few effervescent bubbles rise to the surface. Small 3/4 finger of white head is poured and dissipates quickly leaving a wispy cap and some good but sparse lacing around the glass.

Smell - Slightly skunked beer with very minimal grassy aromas and a couple grainy notes. Really not much in the way of a nose at all. Nothing off-putting though.

Taste - Fairly bland EPL with slight graininess and a more bitter aftertaste than others in the style. Not a whole lot else other than "beer" flavor. Faint sweetness from corn perhaps after a couple of sips.

Mouthfeel - A touch gritty with a very dry finish and unappealing bitter and slightly metallic aftertaste. Medium high carbonation.

Overall - A passable EPL as it's not undrinkable, but there are many superior options in the style.

Edit February 25 2014- had this the other day and there was a sulphur quality to the smell and the flavour that was very unpleasant. Don't know if this was a bad can or not and will reserve judgement but if this is the case the smell and taste ratings should be dropped by about 0.5 as this seriously detracts from an otherwise average EPL.

A: Golden in appearance. Very typical of any mainstream lager. Nice one finger cap of foam. Retention and lacing were actually very good.

S: Somehow skunky hops come through even though its in a can. Perhaps light exposure before the hops went into the beer? A little bit of sulfur too which somewhat okay for a lager. A lot of off flavors in the smell.

T: Not that bad actually. I get a slight touch of sweet malt and a little bit of some kind of noble hop even though it's very slight. Everything is somewhat muted but what is there is nice.

M: Crisp enough. Fairly medium body with somewhat high carbonation making it pretty easy do drink it in a hurry.

O: Not a bad beer at all. Fairly generic and a pretty bad aroma but its okay and just that.
