04-JUL-2016, can @Altomincio camping, from Famila supermarket. Clear, nice golden, low, lasting, white head. Very malty fruity. Dried fruit, bright fruit, peach. Not caramelly. Off course it is very alcoholic but still it is a nice malty almost barley wine like drink. Full, sweet, long aftertaste.

Spab (3285) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2016
500 ml can from The Beer Store. Pours a clear golden orange with average-sized white head. Aroma is fruity with lots of harsh booziness, quite sweet and somewhat grainy. Flavour is also big on very sweet tree fruit and rough booziness with light grains and grass. Classic beer for the breakfast club at The Beer Store and as those go this is respectable. By any other metric though, it sucks.

Cheap and tasty. Doesn’t taste like they just added alcohol to a weak beer. And it’s not expensive.

probstblueribbon (3675) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 20, 2016
500 ml can from TBS, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear golden with a decent rocky white head. Aroma: Very sweet and fruity, boozy, bready, gross. Palate: Medium+ body, full, pillowy carbonation. Flav.: Quite sweet, grainy, very boozy, kinda fruity, tastes like bad decisions; very sweet with low bitterness, lots of booze and a grainy, fruity, sweet finish.

Why do I do this to myself?!
