No retention and no hops. Smells of caramel, molasses and sweet malt. Tastes of amber caramel and malt. Very light bitter finish.

On tap at Tap & Barrel Coal Harbour, pours a hazy dark amber orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out bready malts and some dry caramel. Flavour is about the same, bringing out a good balance of dry bready malt and caramel. Nothing complex or overly enjoyable but certainly not as bad as the average rating suggests. Decent amber ale.

Pretty good actually. Sweet, malty and flavourful. Nothing craft beer about this, but itís quaffable. Best of their basic beers.

Pours a clear reddish amber color with a frothy and spotty off white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee and light fruit esthers. Taste is caramel, toffee, sweet biscuit and some fruity esthers. Nice American amber but too malt focused, needs more hop presence and less malt sweetness bit still enjoyable to drink.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Too ripe. Flavours don't blend, very unbalanced and the malt is slightly smoked. Overly sweet. Not a fan.

Draught at Tap & Barrel, Coal Harbour, Vancouver
Dark amber color, with creamy head. Some caramel and medium to strong bitterness. Clean.
A real Red Ale, in the sense that the color is the only thing that remains after drinking this beer.

355 ml can courtesy of Robeerto # 079. Clear dark red copper, big rocky tan head slowly settles and lasts the whole ride. Aroma of rich dark roasted malt. Sweet dark burnt caramel malt taste, kinda dirty. Soft carbonation, medium bodied, low hopped. Earthy in the finish. Nice enough, but needs more hop balance. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)
