Bottle. Im glad this is going to be a regular beer from the lcbo. This is one of the best lager ive tried. Pours amber with a big white head. I like the strong presence of hops (especially for a lager) which leave a nice bitter after taste.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice clear amber. A touch of malt. Medium carbonation. Refreshing taste. Not earth shattering but a refreshing good beer.

A solid American lager; pours light amber with a rocky, frothy white head. Aroma of piney hops and sweet malt; flavors are well-balanced between light and carmel malts. Straightforward and well-crafted, nothing fancy but pleasant.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Unexpectedly caramel/orange body, moderately carbonated, with a filmy off-white head. Sweet malt, light esters in the nose (apple and sweet potato), floral as well. Tea-like flavors, earthy, woody, with a drying finish. A nice effort, but I find it to be a bit too dry and lacking in the thirst quenching department.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
pour rich golden with a decent but collapsing foam, quite active carbonation. The aroma is hoppy with some malty bready notes and this one goes down easily. the flavour is subtle malt with some hop highlights..

12 ounce bottle. Copper in color, white foamy head. Grapefruity and hoppy. It nice. I think I would like it more when it gets warmer out. Nice carbonation...just right. Lots of great flavor. Nice beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 21, 2009 bottle: Reminds me a lot of JR Brickman Amber. It has that sharp almost apple taste. Feels more like an IPA it is so bitter. I wish this had more malts or sweetness to round out the finish. Give me a Headstrong any day. However, this is a beer you can really settle into with some spicy food. It will stand up against some serious flavour.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear light copper, foamy head that hangs around for a while, nice lacing. Aroma of resiny, piney hops. Very crisp to begin, prickly carbonation and bitterness on the front of the tongue, very lively. A bit malty with a hint of caramel and bread Finishes with just the right bitterness, and a citrus hop bite. Flowery, resiny hops in the aftertaste. This beer gave me a while new faith in lagers after I had written them of forever.
