A shout out to the founding father of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 16.9 oz. can. Has a light golden color with a 1 inch head. Smell is mild, some grains, light malts. Taste is downright bland. Hints of grains, malts, what little flavor is present is not so good. Feels light in the mouth and overall drinks more like a light lager, and a poor one at that.
One of the really cool things about a visit to Chicago is the opportunity to visit one of the area Binny's to scour around for additions to The CANQuest (tm). I prefer their South Loop location, especially given its proximity to Union Station, plus it holds a tap room. They also have a dizzying selection of 500 ml European CANs in shrink-wrapped 4-packs and this came out of one of them.
From the CAN: "Great Natural Taste"; "Original Recipe"; "Distinct Flavor of Kuyavia Region".
Ooops! I got axious and did a Crack! and Glug without checking to see that there was an approved pic. No worries, as I have more and will get this taken care of forthwith. I had a brief two fingers of fizzy, bone-white head with poor retention. Color was a button-bright Straw-Yellow (SRM = > 2, < 4). Nose had a faint honey-like sweetness that is usually the trademark of a lager. Mouthfeel was thin and watery. The taste was weak, like malted barley tea! There were no discernible hops. It was a snooze-a-thon! 4% ABV?!? Sessionable, sure, but why bother? Finish was semi-dry, but it really left nothing to be remembered by. Bye bye.
Pours clear straw yellow beer with fluffy white head, low retention, scanty laces.
Smell is clean, grain, dough. Taste is bland and faceless, watery, malts, chalky, no bitterness. Medium carbonation, light body. Another macrocrap devoured by my tired stomach.
