Amber-golden pour. The nose is quite clean with a well-lagered, munich malt sweetness. A bit of light herbal hoppiness on the back. Crisp but with a lightly spicy nose. A little bit of bready maltiness. It’s okay, but could definitely use a bit more zip.

Currently on as Beautiful Dreamer. Pours copper with a white thin head. Smells of caramel and some tea and earth. Tastes caramelly with a hint of bitterness on the finish. Solid.

Husky and grainy in the nose. Clear copper with decent head that recedes slowly to ring. Very sweet and somewhat grainy with plenty of buttery diacetyl and a light bitterness in the finish. Sticky, slightly oily mouthfeel. On tap at the brewpub with DYCSoccer17, MartinT and Rastacouere.

Well, I personally had the iconoclastic palate the day I met up with the other Montreal boys here. It seemed as though everything I thought was ok, they hated, and vice versa. Creamy, sweet caramel malt aroma with hints of btter and maybe brown sugar? Perhaps these are "lactic" aromas, but I am not so certain what lactic smells like. Coppery orange color with nice frothy off white head. This beer pulverizes me with malts. Tons of caramel, butter, and roasted notes. Mildly metallic, quite sticky. Not too shabby.

Hopeless lactic notes amongst the hay...A hop mini-fart sticks to the frail body which is not very sweet but still manages to be sticky...This place was not good with lagers at all that day...

Perhaps the best Oktoberfest I've had. Right up there with Trinity. Very rich and malty, with just enough hop fruitiness. Beautiful indeed!
