3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This bottle is "past date" but I donít see how thatís possible. Anyhoo, judging by the ratings below, my experience wasnít much different than those who tried a fresher bottle. Caramel, toasted grain, straw, light spiciness, fairly watery. Slightly dry finish with a hint of bitterness. Itís not terrible, itís just kind of blah.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650 ml bottle from the LCBO.
Appearance: Pours a clear deep brown with almost a finger of white head. Minimal retention and little lacing.
Aroma: Malt, biscuit and something I canít quite identify that is throwing things off.
Flavours: Malt, straw, bit of caramel.
Mouthfeel: Thin with moderate carbonation.
Overall: The aroma wasnít that great on this one but the flavours were okay. Everything seemed muted and subdued without any real character. Not much more to say.

I had this beer a while back and it was one of the worst beers I ever had. Iím not sure if they changed the recipe but this is actually pretty respectable and have no problem drinking more of this.

Bottle @ THT November. Pours a clear brown beer with a very small off white head on top. Aroma of sugar, caramel and slightly herbal. Flavor is thin, sweet and chocolately. Quite boring and thin, watery moutfheel. Not very interesting.
