341 ml bottle. (5% ABV) Pours a clear, reddish amber with a small, short lived, tan head that laces. Light aroma of roasted malt and caramel. Sweet flavour of roasted malt, caramel and a hint of nuts with a slightly dry, bitter finish. Light to medium body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Mediocre.

341 ml bottle from a six-pack from Sobeys Liquor, served in a tall, stemmed goblet. Love the name: Rutting Elk...it doesn’t get more Canadian...except, perhaps, for Tree Brewing’s Thirsty Beaver...and Molson Canadian, natch. Pours a deep reddish-amber cola-ish shade, with a fairly creamy-looking tancap that leaves lace patches. Nose holds toasted malt, mildly sweet, with some Big Three Cs (cocoa, coffee, caramel) notably present, and a little aromatic woody hops. Just a whiff of vinous fruit, too. Taste is pleasantly berry-ish, with soft, warm mulling spice accompanying, and a malt toast backbone supported by light cocoa and coffee, and the caramel’s not overwhelming, leaving plenty of space for the subtler elements. Has a moderately chewy mouthfeel and sweet/dry/brief finish. A shade less complex than similar ales, but well-balanced and a pleasure to drink.
