500ml can, day 20 of the Costco Canada 2014 Beer Advent calendar.

This beer pours a clear, dark red-brick amber hue, with a fistful of puffy, loosely foamy, and somewhat creamy beige head, which leaves some cannonball splash lace around the glass as it gently subsides.

It smells of mildly smoked pale and caramel malt, a certain buttery greasiness, overripe apple and pear, faint milk chocolate, and an ethereal dirty earthiness. The taste is bready, grainy caramel malt, an indistinct orchard fruitiness, a wee bit of wet ash, pithy nuts, rather stale cocoa powder, and a still well underperforming earthy hoppiness.

The carbonation is pretty low-key, barely a tic or a burp-enhancer to be found, the body on the light side of medium weight, and more or less smooth, just a weak clamminess sticking its toe in to test the water. It finishes off-dry, that blandly smoked maltiness the only game in town.

Meh - meh - meh - meh - ah, shit, my ennui machine is stuck on repeat, no thanks to this run of thoroughly uninspiring German (ok, Austrian, too) lagers and weissbiers in this calendar. Nothing much more to say about this one, other than it's not too difficult to drink, but don't go in expecting robust flavours.
