2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bouteille 341ml. De couleur brune-ambrée foncée et claire. Nez de grains de malt rôtis, léger de noix avec des notes de café ainsi que des traces de de houblon herbeux. Plutôt mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture légèrement aqueuse. Faibles notes de tabac lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût de grains de malt moyennement rôtis avec des notes de pain grillé et quelques traces de biscuits puis en finale l’on retrouve une très légère amertume de houblon herbeux avec des traces de noix et de café. Post-goût moyen-court, très légèrement amer de rôti avec des traces de houblon herbeux et de café.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
sample pack lcbo craft brewers discovery. 341ml bottle pours a very dark brown opaque with a small lingering head. Aroma I get bread, roast nuts hint of coffee. Body is smooth/creamy with lively carbonation with a slight bitter finish. Not as complex as I thought would be, and very light overall, sort of a disappointment as I was expecting more. Overall though an ok dark lager.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Black with flecks of ruby at the base of the glass. Tan head that laces nicely. Pretty weak aroma, a bit of roast, but hard to get anything. Flavour is quite clean with some of the dark malts perking up with the finish. A little bitter at the end.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
May 7 2012. 341ml bottle pours clear black, dark brown in light. Very carbonated. Small tight tan cap of bubbles dissolves immediately after pour and no lacing. Appears as a cola. Aroma of sweet malt and biscuit hints. Taste is very faint of maple and brown sugar. Carbonation overwhelms both flavour and palate. Not much of a finish or aftertaste either, slight hint of bread. Just way too fizzy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
341ml bottle, 4.5% a/v from Ontario Craft 6 pack, Spring 2012
Pours deep ruby red, looks cola black unless held to a light. Head is light tan and fairly plentiful. Aroma is very malty, roasted nuts, sweet caramel and a hint of carolina tobacco. The taste is also deep, and malty sweet. Some nuts, caramel, and coffee notes. The palace is nice and smooth, very clean for such a dark malty beer, though a bit too carbonated for my liking. Overall, pretty impressive offering from Camerons

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This had a much lighter taste than I had expected, and I guess now reading the commercial description I understand why. Dark lagers are the only non-bock bottom-fermenteds that can make my tongue keel over from ecstasy so maybe it’s unfair to rate them too low when disappointed. I actually closed my eyes and tested this against the Camerons Premium Lager and they do taste different so we know at least that at least that they’re not just using food colouring. I know when I say "biscuity" you’re going to think Marris Otter, and this obviously lacks that, but I’ll say it anyhow, for that’s how I perceived it. Everything else is just middle of the road.
