COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6621) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2016
Toronto 2015 trip +++ Sampled from a 473 ml can this beer poured a nut brown color with an orange hue and a medium sized fluffy beige head that left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet and malty with notes of toffee and a strong egg white presence. The flavor was malty and sweetish with toffee and egg white. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

Pours a dark Amber, with a small bubbly head. Aroma has notes of nuts, caramel, toffee, and lightly toasted malt. Tasting notes include nuts, caramel, and rich malts. Mouth feel is slick and warm. Delicious!!

Tranquillity (1789) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 10, 2016
Can at airport. I would not call this smooth. The aroma is a bit lagers plastic. The taste is nasty, taste old somehow.

KoNrRiI (1181) - Århus, DENMARK - DEC 16, 2015
0.473 draft. Clear, coppery color and a small, off-white head. Aroma is standard, mostly malts, some sweet bread, hints of corn. Taste is simple; malts, a some caramel, a very delicate hint of alcohol. Light to medium body, slick texture, and an average carbonation. Finish is short-lived and generally follows the taste. Overall a mediocre beer.

dslam (103) - surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 19, 2015
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.

473ml can from @El Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. @home 24-07-2014.
BBD: not found??.
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 (428) - 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.
