Small white head quickly dies leaving just the slightest trace of a lacing above a clear bright pale straw washed out golden colored beer.

Very thin aroma of light sour grains.

Very light taste of lesser grain malts with maybe some light hops.

Light almost dryish aftertaste without much taste on this light bodied drink.

Not to much going on here, not really sure who the target audience would be for such a beer.

355ml can, a single from my favourite dodgy likka sto' on the the south side of Edmonchuk.

This beer pours a clear, super-pale golden nothing, with two fingers of weakly puffy, lazily foamy, and not-so-bubbly off-white head, which leaves essentially nothing in terms of lace around the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of plain, grainy corn grist, semi-sweet cheap malt, more than a bit of astringent gasohol notes, and prominent acetone unpleasantries. The taste is more of the same thin, hard water banality (the sort left over after you take out the boiling corn cobs), augmented by a not-so-subtle dose of nail polish remover skankiness, and a wan attempt at leafy, earthy, and generally skunky hop bitterness.

The carbonation is pretty much underwhelming by any metric you can conceive of, the body on the lee side of light weight, and smooth - yeah, in my own worst nightmares. It finishes neither sweet nor dry, but more skanky, if that is an proper term here - I believe that it now is.

What the fuck - was Sleeman Clear too underdeveloped and needing of a reboot, really? Gah. Whatever, this is shit, in terms of brewing quality, and nothing more - I can't really fathom the market for this tripe, unless Coors Light fans develop some sort of ill-informed ennui, or something.
