16oz glass at the Pourhouse on Whyte Ave during World Cup semi-finals. Brewed at the Edmonton Labatt's plant, after a series of recipe and taste tests by this bistro's Burly Chef himself, Mr. Huber.

This beer appears a clear, medium golden yellow colour, with one chubby finger of weakly foamy and bubbly bone-white head, which leaves a decent array of melting iceberg profile lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of gritty pale and corn-bred malt, hard mineral water, a faint red apple rind fruitiness, subtle earthy yeast, and leafy, mildly skunky hops. The taste is grainy cereal malt, pithy corn mash, a hint of buttery acetone, wet stone paths, an ethereal yeasty astringency, and more leafy, earthy, and somewhat vegetal hops.

The bubbles are pretty understated, barely registering on the ol' froth-o-meter, the body an adequate medium weight for the style, and mostly smooth, a tame clamminess arising as I neglect it for foreign soccer stars not scoring on the TV. It finishes off-dry, the grainy multi-toned malt carrying on as it were, while that otherly sweetness dials it down a few notches, and the hops continue in their stunned stupor.

As advertised, this is simply a locally-made (I don't have an asterisk big enough for that) house lager, for all such needs at a beer-centric establishment. Easy enough to drink, and not think too hard about, on an uncommon, hot and sultry day on the Ave in Edmonchuk.
