2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
341 ml bottle. Medium amber, moderate lasting stable head...creamed corn, light malt and maple in the indistinct, unexciting nose...boring, slightly sour body with a bit of salty/brackish quality towards the finish, full mouthfeel but overall rather unpleasant without the slightest trace of hops and a rather thin, stale malt profile. Ummm, why did I buy this again besides ratings whoredom?

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light copper colour wiht a thick white fluffy head. Sweet Munich malt is everywhere in here, a touch of cherry fruitiness, caramel, toffee and a hint of grassy hop aroma/flavour. Flavour is quite malty and bready. A decent beer.

And to think I did everything I could to avoid Canadian macro swill. Im not even a big fan of the style, so the rating is going to be even lower. Amber color and a decent head. Thats where the good part ends. The beer falls as quickly as the head dissapears. Lightly malted, lightly hopped this stuff doesn’t have the balance to make it blend into a palatable beverage. I finished it at least, so thats something.

Nice smooth beer. Dark orange with a thin white head. Aroma is earthy and slightly yeasty. Nice low level of sweetness makes this a decent beer. Nice smooth finish.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber, beige head of decent size, no lacing. The aroma is not to strong: mostly malty. Flavour is well balanced, thought the sweet malt is the main thing here. Nothing spectacular, nothing really bad either. Suprisingly smooth though. Alright. Bottle.
