16oz pint at Blowers & Grafton, a new nostalgic East Coast pub on Whyte Ave.

This beer appears a clear, medium golden yellow colour, with one skinny finger of wispy and bubbly off-white head, which leaves a few specks of remote islet lace around the glass as it quickly blows off.

It smells of grainy and crackery pale malt, a lesser biscuity wheatiness, spoiled apples and pears, a rather estery yeastiness, some mild earthy spice, and very little else. The taste is gritty and grainy cereal malt, some unpleasant yeastiness, stale Wheat Thins, the apples that I forgot about in the 'veggie drawer' for way too long, wet cardboard, and some tame earthy, musty, and dead floral hoppiness.

The carbonation is quite understated in its wan-seeming frothiness, the body a so-so middleweight, and generally smooth, yet with a not so subtle clamminess arising shortly after the get-go. It finishes off-dry, with a tainted mixed malt lingering like a bad cold.

Overall - yup, an old dog can't really learn a lot of new tricks (or anything, other than marketing), so it's not exactly a surprise that this fucking sucks. Bland, ineffectual, and yet probably one of this establishment's best-sellers, given how ridiculously expensive the rest of their actually palatable offerings are.
