Whistler Brewing Co. Function Junction Northwest Pale Ale American Pale Ale at 4.8% ABV | 38 IBU (C$3.49 at Oak & Vine, 500 ml, no bottle date or best before, acquired 27-Mar-2017, reviewed 31-Mar-2017)

Appearance: initially clear medium gold but subsequent heavy particulate, one fat finger of fluffy white head, good retention and minimal lacing. (3/5) Aroma: pine, grapefruit, caramel, herbal. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Palate: medium-light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry mildly bitter finish. (3/5)

Meh. I’m not sure if this is bland by nature, or just elderly – certainly, the heavy particulate at the end of the can suggests age, but there’s no date stamp, so…? In any case, it’s bland now. (12/20)
