20oz tall stein at the WEM Mr. Mike's location. This is their house lager, or 'MGD' clone, as per the helpful bartender.

This beer appears a clear, medium golden yellow hue, with one finger of weakly foamy, frothy dirty white head, which leaves a bit of sparse islet lace around the glass as things delve downwards.

It smells of mild raw cereal, a soft graininess, a hard water flintiness, and leafy, weedy hops. The taste is semi-sweet pale malt, some persistent cereal graininess, more wet stone, a touch of neutered lemon juice, and tame grassy, leafy hops. Simple, but clean.

The carbonation is peppy and quite tight, the body medium-light in weight, and a bit too astringent on the high palate to be deemed all that smooth. It finishes just off-dry, the plain pale malt, lingering muted citrus, and weedy hops still good to tango.

Nothing special, but nothin' wrong with it either, no skunk, no obvious adjuncts. An adequate accompaniment to barely upscale resto-pub food, I'm sure. I do have to wonder, as this pint dwindles, if OSB just re-purposed 1516, despite this establishment's claims to the contrary.
