355ml can - the marketing blurb says that this is made solely with the 'four fundamental ingredients'. Do they only use rice for their malt?

This beer pours a clear, bright medium golden yellow colour, with three fingers of puffy, finely foamy, and somewhat creamy off-white head, which leaves some decent webbed lace around the glass as it slowly yet surely dissipates.

It smells of lightly toasted, grainy and biscuity cereal malt, a bit of indistinct pome fruitiness, mildly spicy yeast, and some plain earthy, grassy, and floral green hop bitters. The taste is bready and crackery pale malt, baked red apples, estery lager yeast, and more understated leafy, musty, and dead grassy hoppiness.

The carbonation is average in its palate-supporting frothiness, the body a solid middleweight, and generally smooth, with nothing really getting in the way of a swell time at this point in the proceedings. It finishes off-dry, the Alberta malt showing some real lingering gusto.

Overall - this was a pleasant surprise, a 'light' lager that is full of flavour, and rather crushable. The only fault I can find is with their sense of nostalgia: there is no way this style of brew was this good way back in the days of DJs spinning vinyl.
