3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On cask at C’est What in Toronto, served in an English pint glass. Pours clear orange-amber with a small, off-white head. The head fades to a thin remnant and leaves no lace. On the nose, there are notes of biscuit malts, bread, citrus, fruit and a touch of herbal hops. The flavour is balanced between slight sweetness and slight bitterness. Toasted malts balance with delicate herbal and resinous hops. The flavour becomes slightly more bitter towards the end, leading up towards a clean, malty finish with herbal hops. On the palate, it is light-medium in body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a balanced but bland example of a märzen. It could be a lot more complex, both on the malt side and the hop. 2011-12-17

from bottle. pours a clear deep copper colour with a decent head in my pint glass. Recognisable lager aroma, nothing spectacular. Take a sip and you’ll be pleasantly surprised. This is a full bodied and equally full flavoured example of a Marzen with an excellent lingering bitterness that’ll last until your next mouthful.

600mL bottle from the LCBO. Pours a gorgeous clear amber with a good white head. Aroma is standard decent lager smell. But the taste - wow! Big surprise, this is a very full-flavoured lager. Perfectly balanced notes of caramel, slightly-roasted barley, and delicious hops. Big body for a lager. This is a terrific lager! Well done, Beau’s. Oktoberfest is long since over, but I enjoyed with a dinner of sausage with sauerkraut.

I liked this one. Taste comes strong on the tongue and melts into bitter orange peel. The problem is I had this after a truly spectacular beer. The good thing for it is that it wasn’t that disappointing, considering.

Tap at Rhino. The aroma has a lot of soft sweetness and a little bit of light sweetness. It’s a little bit sweet with a touch of soft DMS. There is a little bit of fairly dirty esters that I could do without. Fairly pronounced bitterness but it’s not really all that good.

Nice pint of Cask at Burger Bar, Kensington Market. Tastes fruity and a bit mineral with slightly herbal dry hops. Yep, pale fruit and earth. A good one.
