COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A malt accented bockiness and strong golden hue unite with the Cameron’s signature use of rye malt to create an intriguing variation of classic style.

Rating #1127 06.09.2014 650ml Bottle from CBI. Pours a golden copper colour with a frothy white head that bubbles away slowly. Aroma is rich, light citrus, hint of grassiness, mild alcohol. Taste is medium to full bodied, and the alcohol is masked slightly with the earthy, floral hops and grassiness,but certainly brings a heavy warmth and a bit of a hoppy bite. Delicious.

UXO (871) - CANADA - MAR 24, 2015
Pours clear pale amber with two fingers of rocky light tan head, excellent retention and lacing. (4/5) Nose is muted, grainy malt, mild tropical fruit and earth. (6/10) Taste is moderate sweet, mild bitter. (6/10) Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. (3/5) Pretty plain. Not a lot of rye presence, actually, though it eventually comes through in the finish. Regardless of whether you call it a Maibock or a Heller, ultimately it’s a lager, and yet again, it’s so hard to make a lager interesting I keep wondering, why bother? (12/20)

Oakes (13600) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 27, 2015
Amber, cloudy, decent, light floral nose, has light earthy taste, quite yeasty, and overall balanced and unexciting. Not much rye and no bock.

2014-11-29. Lightly hazy dark orange body with a modest white body head 3++ Aroma is lightly fruity with a lightly grainy rye character. Flavour is moderately bitter, nice lightly grainy rye notes. Smooth average plus bodied palate, modest carbonation. Not super complex, pleasantly fruity. Drinkable but I much prefer their RyePA. Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto

b3shine (6762) - Indiana, USA - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good for the style; a transparent caramelish orange with foamy eggshell head. Smells hoppy, malty, and spicy. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. A good example of the style.
