750 ml oil can purchased from the Beer Store for $3.90 CDN. Served into a 1 liter Hofbrauhaus Mug. Re-review, as this was previously a tick, but with some cash for empties, I decided to pick this up and do a full review.

Appearance - Pours a clear moderately rich golden colro with plenty of effervescent bubbles. Three fingers of fluffy white head crown this beer. Nice amount of lacing and even pretty good retention.

Smell - Mild adjunct graininess and some cooked veggies, not too pleasant. Some overly sweet corn grain in there too.

Taste - Sort of bland but with a decent grainy flavor, and the cooked veggies that showed up in those aren't here. Grain flavors adhere to your mouth and stick around for a while in the aftertaste. Virtually no bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Decent carbonation, easy to drink and not an abhorrently light body.

Overall - As far as macro lagers go, this is one of the better one's, clean and easy to drink with some flavor. Only drawback is the nose which isn't too inviting.
