Heinous. Genuinely terrible--this *has* to be a bad batch that shouldn't have gone out to liquor store shelves. All I taste is packing peanuts (and, to a lesser extent, actual peanuts). Grassy hops, a bit of apple core, but mostly peanuts.

A slight step above macro lagers, but marginal at best. Not much else to say about this one. I like the brewery, but this is not one of their best brews.

355ml can.

Appearance - Pours a clear light gold with a finger of bubbly white head.

Smell - Adjunct aromas, bready malts, a bit of hay.

Taste - Adjuncts, malts, and wet hay.

Mouthfeel - Light-to-medium bodied with high carbonation. Dry finish.

Overall - Easy drinking lager that is nicely carbonated and has a dry crisp finish. Flavours and aromas aren't really a stand out (kind of generic), but it is what it is.

355ml can. I have a soft spot for Penticton as a summer and fall vacation destination, and that big ol' steamship moored off Lakeshore Drive is part of it.

This beer pours a crystal clear, pale golden straw colour, with two fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and decaying bubbly off-white head, which leaves a few swooping northern islands of sudsy lace around the glass as it quickly settles.

It smells of grainy, somewhat corny (really? I mean, really?) pale malt, a mild acetone astringency, stale apple cores, pear skin, and earthy, weedy hops. The taste is gritty, grainy, and slightly crackery pale malt (thankfully shed of any corn essences), a remaining apple and pear dry fruitiness, and mildly edgy grassy, earthy hops.

The bubbles are a bit swirling and tongue peppering at first, but calm down relatively soon, the body a surprisingly near-medium weight, and more or less smooth for the style. It finishes off-dry, the sort of complex malt sweetness seeing adequate counteraction from the increasingly crab grassy hops.

While there are hints here of a well-made, if mostly simple pale malt lager, there are equal indications of the sort of crap endemic in every low brow adjunct offering out there. The combination of the two, unfortunately, tends to the lowest common denominator.
