473ml can. Part of a mixed six-pack out here on the Prairies. Grande Prairie right now, to be exact.

This beer pours a crystal clear, medium golden yellow colour, with two fingers of lazily puffy, thinly foamy white head, which leaves a few swaths of awkwardly honeycomb desert tree lace around the glass as it quickly and evenly subsides.

It smells of biscuity cereal malt, a bit of cornbread, a slight drupe fruitiness, and sort of musty, dead leaf hops. The taste is more corn and barley cereal grains, dipped for a spell in metallic grain alcohol - rather than the more familiar cow's milk - sour applesauce, an evolving (from step 1, natch) breadiness, and soft leafy, grassy hops.

The bubbles are active, in a pleasantly understated and persistent manner, the body medium-light in weight, and a little too edgy to be deemed straight-up smooth. It finishes off-dry, the semi-sweet breadiness of the various (cough) input grains wallowing with the last of the mildly wilted grassy hops.

Well, a hell of lot better than I was expecting, given the last 2 or 3 tall can offerings that this brewery has unleashed on us. Bocks are always a little dicey, what with the uptick in alcohol in an already see-through beer style. Here, it is handled ably enough, but still with a few rough edges, which leads me to recommend trying it - just don't bet your night on it.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

471ml Can from the Ottawa LCBO for 3$

Appearance - Clear yellow colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fair lacing. The head lasted for around 3-4 minutes.

Smell - Corn, apples, grains, malts

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste corn, apples, and grains. There is also some malts, metallic notes and some light noble hops and some hay/grass. It ends with a corn/grass slightly bitter aftertaste.

Overall – Not a bad beer, just pretty boring. It really doesn't taste all that much different from their pilsner to be honest. Not something I'd buy again and not something I'd really suggest to others unless they are looking for a basic lager type beer.

473ml can poured into tulip 14/6/13

A bright golden yellow with some tiny particles and lots of bubbles, two fingers of foam has decent retention and leaves just a random patch of lace

S honey bread, candy corn, corn syrup, and some dried grass, fairly sweet and simple

T corn syrups a little stronger, quite sweet and matches the smell fairly well other then that but I prefer the smell

M leaning towards medium, not as many bubbles as I could see, sweet finish with more grass and honey

O a sweet bock without the boozy malt liquor I often get from the style but then again its only 5.5%

another one and done brew for this guy, there's nothing wrong with it but rather boring and I wouldn't go looking for it
