COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our only regularly produced lager, this rich malty beer uses just the right amount of noble hops to balance the Munich Malts and features an ultra clean finish to complete the package. Brewed with local spring water, organic malts and organic hops. Oh yeah!

Lubiere (10139) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2008
A golden amber marzen with a thick lacing white head. A caramel malt aroma, with light vegetable notes, a bit of mashed beans, and sweet fruity esters in finale. In mouth, a nice crisp malt with light berry and grape notes, nutty finales, and hops coming as beer warms up. A good beer. Medium bodied. On tap at Wellington Gastropub, Dec. 11 2008.

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.

MartinT (7952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 7, 2013
My Bottom Line :
This malt lover’s Märzen serves up bread crusts, lightly burnt sugar and chewy barley on a most elegant palate.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam covers the translucent pale amber.
-Soft carbonation and lean residual sugars combine for a easygoing, cuddly mouthfeel.
-Hops are timid throughout. A touch of wooden bitterness in the finish, but that’s it.
-Again, beautifully developed soft malt character in this Beau’s lager.

jercraigs (7921) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2008
2008-10-17. Murky orange amber body, tiny ring of head. Nice fruity aroma, orange, citrus peels, light yeast. (7+) Similar flavour is fairly bitter, lightly astringent citrus/hops, light malt. (7+) Smooth average bodied palate feels light at times. Does not seem to be very stylistically accurate to me, perhaps they upped the hops for Cask Days? Fairly quaffable regardless. Not a bad start to Cask Days! Cask @ Volo Cask Days 2008

DuffMan (6865) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle, shared with TylerDurden before pouring the rest into the toilet. Looks nice enough: orange copper colour with a thick off white head. The aroma is foul, sulphurous and eggy. The palate is tinny caramel with pithy bitterness. Completely unenjoyable.

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - NOV 1, 2008
cask at Volo
Appearance: Murky hazed amber brew with light rocky top
Nose: Vinous, fruity with sweet malts, bit unusual.
Flavor/Palate : Medium full bodied, sweet banana , plum and bitter wet hop character with sticky malt as base. Smoother at finish.

blankboy (6139) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 28, 2008
Cask at ’Volo Cask Days 2008’. Pours a cloudy orange-copper with no head. Aroma of tart fruit, light spices, light hops and malt. Flavour’s fruity and spicy along with caramel malt and a light bitter finish, though a bit milder then I’d like. Average bodied. Nothing great, like I said it’s somewhat mild, but a good beer nonetheless.

HogTownHarry (6126) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2008
Cask. At Volo Cask Days 2008. Ah, another Beau’s. Cloudy orange pour, wispy whiteish head. While not horrid, smells like malt extract and spoiled OJ. Tastes of wet grain and orange oil (which isn’t something I would normally willingly drink). Slick, somewhat thick mouthfeel, acidic and coatingly bitter in the linger - ehhh, it’s a Beau’s, my expectations weren’t that high so no worries.
