3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice looking red lager with a thick pillowy beige head. Nose has biscuity malt aromas, some toffee, very understated aromas though. Palate opens up with spritzy carbonation, some raisins and plums in the middle and biscuity flavours, finishes quick and clean. Not bad, but lacking a depth of flavour of say a Smithwicks. Would be a good campfire beer as quite sessionable.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Canette 473ml. De couleur ambrée foncée et claire. Nez de grains de malt sucrés aux notes rôties, léger de caramel et de légumes bouillis sucrés avec des notes de houblon herbeux. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement huileuse. Léger goût de légumes bouillis sucrés lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains sucrés légèrement caramélisés et aux faibles notes rôtis ainsi que des traces de pain mouillé puis en finale l’on retrouve une très légère amertume de houblon herbeux (herbes mouillées). Post-goût court-moyen, aux notes amères de houblon herbeux avec de faibles traces rôties.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
473 mL Can. Deep amber body with a thin but tenacious foamy white head leaving ample lace. Aroma of sweet light malts with grassy hops and a floral note. The flavor speaks of a light body; refreshing but without being short on taste. Light sweet malts with just the right amount of hops to make it a great session beer. The light sweet malts and soupçon of toasted malts linger off into a clean finish seeming to invite the beer drinker to take another sip. I’m taking some of this on my next fishing trip.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Chocolatey toast aroma that’s a bit labery and with medium, spicy hops and faint fruit notes. Dark amber topped by lasting, lacy off-white. Sweet, though weak, caramel flavour that ends dry and with some toastiness. Detectable hops. Very clean with medium carbonation and a light body.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 ml can from LCBO. Pours a red copper with medium carbonation. Aroma of bread and something I can’t quite identify but reminiscent of "sticky buns" or candy. On the tongue no hop bitterness to speak of, and a sticky mouthfeel. Finish is sweet, sticky, candy like. I don’t see it mentioned on the label, but it almost seems to have some sort of maple to it.
All in all its not an objectionable beer but not one I would want more than one of.
