Medium amber color. Medium carbonation and a soft mouthfeel. Caramel notes cut with a slightly tart/bitter finish. Pleasantly balanced, in a malty kind of way. Hint of vanilla?

This pours a very nice redish brown with a minimal head. The beer is very fizzy and tastes mostly of malts.

Bottle purchased at Consumer’s Beverages Niagara Falls. Pours a reddish brown with a white head. Islands of lacing here and there. Wouldn’t say I’m getting much in the scent department. Taste is light, sweet. There’s a little grain in there. Tiny bit bitter on the finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Translucent amber, slight copper tinge, large frothy head, spotty lacing, lively carbonation.
Looks somewhat similar to the Leinenkugels Oktoberfest I had just before this.   Soft malty nose, very faint
hay/straw and even some caramel.   Somewhat of a dusty malty start, very soft sweetness.   Backside is a
little sticky, somewhat hangs out on the tongue.   Nothing off about this one, just light and perhaps a bit aged
in his nose and on the tongue (the musty/dusty part).   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Yeah, just a pale
malty beer with some flavor that is just enough to make it interesting, but not enough to make it memorable.

It poured a clear orange color with a small beige head. The aroma was of toasty malt and caramel. The flavor was mostly caramel with a hint of hops.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
THOUGHTS: Slightly better than I was expecting. Nice, malty beer, but not very complex. A little thin in the body and slightly cloying by the end. The aroma was a little artificial and overly sweet. It needs more balance.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured clear, dark, brownish red that sort of looked like root or birch beer with an average to large, creamy, off-white head that kept a nice sheet and left good lacing. The aroma had light to moderate dark bread, toasted bread and caramel; and hints of vanilla and cola. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and ever so slightly sour; while the finish was moderate to heavily sweet, slightly sour and slightly bitter with a short to average duration. There was caramel, molasses, some grain, slight brown sugar, cookie, slight vanilla, a little apple, slight grassy hops, slight metallic hops and dark bread. The light to medium body was like watery syrup with fizzy carbonation and a slightly metallic finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle from Pick’s poured into a shaker. Pours a clear nut brown with a small bit of white head. Aroma of caramel malt. Taste is lightly bitter. Taste of caramel and some roasted nuts. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a long bitter finish. Overall, pretty good. I would drink this again.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark roasted malt and yeast flavor. Brownish amber color with a thin tan head. A little bit of a metallic aftertaste. Better than the average mass produced beer but I wouldn’t select this one again unless it was the only choice against less desirable beers.

’Sallright. Poured with a nice sized, foamy, frothy, cream colored head that settled down to a few islands quickly and no lace. Color is a lovely, clear cherry, copper amber. Aroma is malt, toffee, caramel, a bit of fruit and roast. Flavor is less interesting than nose, the same stuff, just less intense or interesting. Body is ok and carbonation is a touch fizzy. Finish is like flavor and on the short side.
