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!

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.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.
