Hints of caramel, nuts and toasted malt result in a fully flavoured, yet deceptively smooth lager. A well balanced body makes it a perfect year-round beer. Red Leaf is an ideal match with burgers, rubs, sandwiches and stews.

Poured from a 473 ml can. Dark brown color with good amount of head. Nutty and a little heavy for what u would expect from a lager. Not necessarily bad but definitely a surprise. leaves a watered down nutty flavor behind which I am not a fan of.

In short: a watery vienna lager.
Pours clear dark amberwith nice off white head. Moderate head retention, poor lacing. Caramel, liquorice aromas.Light body, average carbonaton, some crispy texture. Taste is malty, sweet, some metalic and watery. Enjoyable anyway.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2014
Bouteille de 341 ml achetée dans une LCBO de Ottawa. Dégustée le 24 août 2008 (bug). Bière brune-orange limpide. Mousse très peu, col quasi inexistant, éphémère. Très peu effervescente, grosses bulles. Odeur de cognac, de grain et d’alcool. Très douce, peu sucrée, peu amère. Saveur peu agréable, trop aigre. Manque de caractère, style macro, manque de raffinement. Un peu mince.

Deep brown pour fairly big foamy white head. Aroma is malts, little grass. Flavor is light sweet malts. fairly light body. Decent but not too much going on.

Pours deep brown with a faint hint of foam on top. Nothing offensive; nothing special. If they sell these to to the masses to make the $ so I can buy their tank 10 offerings then I guess im ok with that but I ain’t buying this again.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2014 Faint aroma of caramel. Dark clear auburn colour. Slight biscuit flavour with a slight aftertaste of chocolate mousse Light body with mild carbonation. Pretty basic but pleasant lager.

473ml can from the brewery. Pours a crystal clear, dark caramel colour with a one finger, off-white head that thins fast. Mild ring lacing clings to the glass. Aroma has notes of bread and caramel, with hints of vanilla, laced with roasted malts. Taste is a balanced bitter with a bready caramel finish. Low-medium body with a low-medium carbonation. Crisp and fairly clean in the mouth. Highly drinkable and moderately refreshing. Overall not bad. Nothing offensive but nothing that blows me away. Definitely more malt forward but that isn’t a bad thing. I would probably buy again to switch it up from the IPAs. Could be a good well rounded brew to have around to offer to people that might not like a more crafted taste. Cheers!

tompete (251) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 23, 2013
473 ml can. Pours a ruby brown with a beige head. Aroma is roasty. Flavour is odd dark malts. Finish is bitter from roasted grains.

reebtogi (4967) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 14, 2013
473ml can pours a deep amber color with a finger of off-white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and grass with some mild grains. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a light grassy hop bitterness. Light to medium body with some decent carbonation. A decent dark lager along the same lines as Negra Modelo from Mexico. Decent for a darker session brew.
