On tap at the brewery. Pours amber/golden with a white head. Aroma of a nice floral hoppiness, malts that don’t overpower the beer, and some dough. Flavor a nice blend of everything. Average texture. Not a bad beer.

Drank on tap (20 oz) at Sneaky Dee’s in Toronto on October 10, 2014. Medium amber, thin head. Sweet barley malt aroma, fruity caramel note. Light malty taste, not to dry, no after taste. Big deal!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Ambré pâle avec un petit tête beige. L’arôme du caramel et un très peu d’houblon. Le goût resemble l’arôme. C’est très facile à boire mais non remarkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Malt: Medium, caramel, Hops: Medium Fruity, apricot, citrus
Appearance: Clear copper body. Merge, frothy off-white head. Not very good retention
Flavour: Malt: Medium bready, toffee. Hops: Light, fruity. Balance: Well balanced. Dry finish. slight sting
Mouthfeel: Medium body, medium carbonation
Overall: As the 4th stop in a "tour", this is a very plain beer, until you let it warm up. The maltiness and overall pleasantness really picks up as the beer gets warmer (12C).
473 ml can, poured. Thanks Wimpie and Amanda!

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light copper colour with micro-head but no lacing. There is an a little more than average carbonation. The taste is caramel malts mixed with a grassiness and and tiny bit of hops hops. There is also a bit of a pear juice fruitiness. The beer finishes with a malty sweet after taste with a touch of bitterness. Unique but thin and boring.
