355ml can - I hope that all these new Alberta craft brewers can play nicely, since 4th Meridian has a brew called 'Bush League Sour Ale'. Just sayin'. Also, the brewery refers to this as a 'Danish-style pilsner', whatever that means.

This beer pours a clear, bright pale golden yellow colour, with four fingers of puffy, rocky, and somewhat fizzy eggshell white head, which leaves some decent layered cloud form lace around the glass as it lazily seeps away.

It smells of gritty and grainy cereal malt, a faint underripe pome fruitiness, a hint of estery yeast, mild gasohol notes, and some plain earthy, musty, and dead grassy hop bitters. The taste is grainy and crackery pale malt, still understated apple and pear fruity essences, some damp minerality, and more leafy, weedy, and musky floral green hoppiness.

The carbonation is adequate in its palate-supporting frothiness, the body a more or less solid medium weight, and generally smooth, with nothing really getting in the way of a pleasant time at this point in the game. It finishes trending dry, the sneaky hops droning out the lingering malt sweetness.

Overall - this offering certainly exhibits some 'Bohemian' pilsener qualities, and is a hell of a lot better than Carlsberg or Tuborg, I guess that's why they have the European Pale Lager category. Whatever, it's light, quaffable, and reasonably flavourful.
