Amber. Has a lot of toasty caramel character. Decent bitterness, bready. Unadventurous beer but at least itís well-balanced.

Sweet flavour of caramel malt, bread and a metallic note with a dry, mildly bitter, grassy hop finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Deep amber brown pour, clear with a light tan head. Aroma is light but quite nice - sweet and malty, caramel and apple notes, a bit of grain. Flavour is much the same - caramel malt and apple juice, medium-light body with decent balance and a dry finish. Boring, but as far as an easygoing amber goes, pretty nice.

Draft - Caramel, burnt sugars and some slight soured malts and citrus. Cloudy Amber with a nice beige head. Bitter citrusy, light amber malts and lots of peel. Not a fan.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can to Grolsch pint glass, beer pours a transparent dark red with a slight off white top. Aroma carries sweet burnt caramel, vanilla, toffee and butterscotch. Not much in the way of hop aroma except for a bit of grass. Taste wise this beer is odd...burnt and sour notes dominate, no sweetness to back it up and the hop bitterness is pretty rough. Not to mention itís pretty watery as well. The beer is fairly palatable...itís quite fizzy, watery and on the dry side so itís quite drinkable. Overall...welll...boring and quite frankly not super good, though thereís nothing hugely wrong with it that makes it undrinkable.

355 ml can from a sampler twelve-pack at Sobeys Liquor outlet.
Love the ghostly train story on the side of the can. Served in a freebie lager/pint glass branded with Molson Canadian and the logo for the Arizona Coyotes. Pours a clear, deep reddish amber with a copious, smoothly bubbled tan head that lasts and leaves an interesting variety of lacing. Didnít note carbonation. Aroma is light malt sweetness. Flavor is lightly sweet, dark fruits, caramel, hop spiciness/black pepper and a wee bit of smokiness. Pleasant body and mouthfeel with a speck of lingering pepper. A delicious red ale with more flavor action going on than others Iíve sampled.
