12oz Bottle from the Ottawa LCBO for 2$

Appearance - Clear gold colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an above average amount of carbonation showing and there is some faint lacing. The head lasted for 5+ minutes.

Smell - Malts, skunk, breads/grains, metallic, corn

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts and corn mixed with some slightly harsh herbal/metallic notes. It ends with a grainy corn syrup type aftertaste.

Overall - It's been a while since I've opened a beer and smelled such a high amount of skunk. The scent seemed to die down and the beer got better as I progressed through my glass, but this is still nothing that warrants drinking again.
