473ml can pours a deep amber color with a finger and a half of light beige head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel with a raisin note and hints of grass. Taste is a raisin and caramel malty sweetness with a light grassy hop bitterness. Light bodied with generous carbonation. Can see tiny bubbles rising to the surface. Overall, this is better than I expected.

This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a nice looking hazy dark amber to red color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing sticking and then sliding into the beer. The smell had a strong roasted caramel to nutty maltiness to it. The taste was mainly the same with an ample amount of light chocolate to balance. Its barely there. A light malty sweet aftertaste leads to a dry sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was somewhat subdued but still good for the style and for me. Overall, I say this was a decent American Amber / Red ale I might be able to have again.

Gingerale whisp. Tobacco leaves. Taste: Medium-light sweet, light bitter, light sour. Again a bread of some sort - this time fresh out of the bag. Light toffee. Some parsnip and turnip. A bit off-kiltered.

Lagerboy (1661) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2012
500 ml can. Mostly clear copper, foaming off white head disappears instantly. Seaside aroma, tide in. Sweet caramel roasted malt taste, some light bitterness. Average carbonation, light-medium bodied, lightly hopped. No hint of KB’s signature cloying funky yeasty malty taste... a pleasant surprise! Malty sweet finish. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)
