A full flavored lager. Rich and light. Never boring, and one that everyone should enjoy.

It surprises me to no end that there are so many that would claim this to be any less than excellent.

Lime wine connoseurs; beer connoseurs are hacks, and know little to nothing.

It's all subjective, friends.

I know people that prefer Lucky to La Fin Du Monde.

That being said, this beer is exceptional in its depth of flavour as a lager.

Try it.
Enjoy it.

I know you will.

330ml bottle, part of the current Stanley Park mixed pack, which has all new branding! Squeeee!

This beer pours a slightly hazy, medium golden yellow colour, with two fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and bubbly off-white head, which leaves a bit of random spattered coral reef lace around the glass as it lazily subsides.

It smells of bready and doughy pale malt, buttered saltine crackers (fuck!), ephemeral domestic citrus notes, a hint of yeastiness unrequited, and some plain leafy, earthy, and dead floral green hop bitters. The taste is grainy and bready pale malt, buttered saltine crackers (fuck, not again!), more wan citrus rind, a hint of still inexplicable yeastiness, and more plain leafy, earthy, and dead floral green verdant hoppiness (maybe you saw what I did there, maybe you didn't).

The carbonation is fairly benign in its barely-there frothiness, the body an adequate middleweight, and sort of smooth, but we've already heard this story today, so I don't want to be repeating myself, do I? It finishes off-dry, with not much else to recommend it by.

Overall - siiiiiiiiiigh. I don't know where the 'west coast' part is supposed to have come in here, but maybe it's just to be inferred by this contract brewing concern's physical location, and not any particular adherence to (or knowledge of) brewing styles. Another one for the summer of 2017's not totally metaphorical waste bin.
