500ml can, day 6 of the Costco Canada 2014 Beer Advent calendar - kind of weak to have a beer show up from the same brewery, two days in a row, IMHO.

This beer pours a clear, pale golden yellow colour, with four fingers of puffy, frothy, and sort of bubbly off-white head, which leaves some high-rising cirrus cloud lace around the glass as it slowly sinks away.

It smells of crisp grainy pale malt, saltine crackers, petrol fumes, ethereal citrus rind, and earthy, leafy, and mildly grassy hops. The taste is bready, somewhat doughy pale malt, biscuity crackers, dried apples, a slight sulfuric astringency, and more earthy, leafy, and weedy hops.

The carbonation is quite intense in its tight frothiness, and tighter fizziness, the body medium-light in weight, and not particularly smooth, some hard water notes and tacky hoppiness not helping the cause. It finishes fairly dry, any sweetness falling out the bottom of the grainy malt, while the aforementioned flintiness and malingering hops shore up their hold on my palate.

A pretty typical version of the style, the gritty malt, up and down gasohol essence, and sturdy, yet underwhelming at the same time noble hops all present and accounted for. Plain, and easy enough to drink, especially when you've been looking forward to it all day, is all I have further to say.

Clear golden grainy water.
Nothing special here.
