2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thick, malt forward aroma has notes of orange-citrus and plenty of tannins. Caramel and toffee are up front with just a touch of butter. Some earthy and floral notes and a fleeting hint of licorice. Brilliantly clear chestnut brown coloured body is topped by a decent tan head that recedes slowly to cover with nice lacing. Caramel is strong in the flavour but cannot hide a husky graininess. Regardless, the flavour is somewhat simple and quite sweet. Medium light body with overly strong carbonation. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle (BCLS on Commercial, Feb-07).

In my opinion the best from Cannery although can be a little watery on tap. Directly from the brewery in a "party pig" it is a great session beer with a full mouthfeel, inviting head, and eye-catching brown colour. Puts OSB to shame.
