Re: What're you lightly drinking?

Had a few low-ABV brews... the Godspeed Draught-lager style "Baby Svetly" (1.5%) is pretty acceptable for a crushable quaff, and the Omnipollo KONX (0.3%) tastes almost like a good light sour pale but something in the taste goes very wrong, like it's spoiled or infected. I'm not expecting...

Re: Coming Soon to the LCBO
