VertBaconStrips (2063) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 12, 2012
On tap at Sherlocks downtown. Medium amber thin white cap. Thin chocolate caramel toasty perfume vanilla aroma. Decent smell. The taste is ok but the gassiness got annoying quickly. Vanilla, light chocolate with a faint orange flavor, toffee toastiness, slightly astringent, light tang that is very short lived as well as a smidgen of bitterness but only on the odd sip. This is on the brink of being too sweet. Not great but a decent light weight option at the bar.

Bendrixian (1069) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2011
Clear brew and has an amber colour. sweet notes almost vanilla and caramel note. more of the same on the palate but light body and almost no alcohol kick. i find it thin and overfiltered.

Atheist_Peace (928) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2011
341ml bottle. Pours clear, dark amber with a hint of tan head that doesn’t really stick around. Very sweet nose of caramel and butterscotch with a maltiness underneath and a little vanilla. There’s a definite green note on the palate with that same caramel and vanilla back. Finishes crisp but there’s a lagery feel at the end.

pintbypint (2554) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 16, 2011
341ml brown bottle. Pours out orange, off white head with a tight bead, creamy lace. Nose is sweet, big caramel and vanilla notes. Mellow flavour with caramel and grain. Finishes drier, some grain, caramel. Medium body, average carbonation, pretty smooth and soft, not a bad effort from this brewery.

Lagerboy (1185) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 12, 2011
Clear copper wiht a small off white head. Sweet vanilla malt aroma and taste.Low hopped and softly carbed, a little too flat and oily. Sweet finish. I swear this used to be better. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)
