Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Edmonton pours amber in color with a small off-white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruits with some caramel and hops. Taste is malty and fruity sweet with a generous hop bitterness for the style. Medium bodied with some decent carbonation. A nicely done and tasty winter warmer that is sure to satisfy most palates.
