3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
341 ml bottle from Co-Op Liquor Store, served in a nonic pint. Pours a hazy orangey-light amber with a collar of faint tan head that leaves fine lace behind. (The appearance may be muddied since the bottle was too cold when opened and gushed out some of its contents.) Aroma presents almost like an IPA with much strong orangey and grapefruity citrus and herbal hops and a smattering of pine, with biscuity cereals and grassiness; flavor has both the citrus and malts showing powerfully but pleasantly, balancing sweetness and astringency well. Slightly thick and velvety with a brief lingering finish. I’d relabel this as a "Vienna Session Ale", as the pale ale hoppiness isn’t what I’d expect in a darker lager, but there’s more than enough of the style’s maltiness to go around. Mixed-up, but enjoyable nevertheless.

It's a little dead to me, it's like malty and roasty, but not in a great way you know? I like it enough to rate it, maybe I overreacted, well,

Bottle sample @ Calgary International Beerfest 2014. Medium golden brown, bready caramel malts with a soft hoppy finish. Good for what it is.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Caramel-coloured pour with a light beige head. Aroma is lightly hoppy with a bit of citrus, biscuit and coppery notes. Flavour is kind of metallic with some nice bitterness coming through. Has some ESB characteristics to the flavour. Very smooth yet fairly full bodied for a lager, although the flavour isn't great. Mixed feelings about this one.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle to pint glass, appearance is a transparent dark amber with hardly any head but with good longevity. Aroma carries caramel, oak, cardboard and noble hops. Taste is much of the same though with more toffee and a bitterness/hop flavour typical of an ESB. Lager yeast does stand out and the beer finishes dry and bitter. Palate is medium-bodied, co2 medium, balance is pretty good and on the dry side. Overall this is pretty decent. Not much of a lager fan but this is good.
