2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, Dec. 17th Beer Adent Calendar. Clear medium amber colour with an average white head. The character of this beer is sweet grains that are equally lightly bready and lightly toasty. Metallic note in the finish. WTF? A lot of these euro lagers possess a distinct metallic aftertaste to me. I’ve been blaming the nobel hops, but I don’t know. Another "whatever" beer for me.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a reddish gold color with a beige top that leaves some sticky lacing. Aroma of bread, biscuit and light caramel. Taste is caramel and Vienna malts up front before a bit of a tangy and mildly spicy finish. Nice mouth feel to this beer, I think not would be a bit thin but the mouth feel makes every flavor jump out.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml brown bottle, from Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Deep gold coloured and clear. Small layer of white foam on top, nice lacing. Nose is toasty, bit of caramel sweetness. Taste has toasty grains, bread, slight caramel sweetness. A little grassy at the end, light bitterness. Light body, decent mouthfeel and carbonation. Better than expected, a nice vienna.

Dec 17 CBAC. Dark amber with a nice head. Smells of some bready mid-roast grain. Flavour tries but does not jump over the bar. Mellow body and a doughy grain flavour.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber pour with a red tinge. Aroma is crisp with biscuit, lightly fruity, and a little herbal. Crisp with decent enough flavours - apple, bready malts, little bit of mid palate hop kick, lemon. Finishes fairly clean.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330mL bottle, pours a clear amber with a small beige head. Nose is of sweet treacly, caramel malts, toasted nuts, bread, and some honey-ish accents. Flavour is fairly light, with the same treacly caramel malts and honey notes dominating, but they are very weak. A bit of bread as well. Kind of sweet, but the body is not strong enough for it to come through much. Decent, inoffensive beer, but nothing special.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a small white head that leaves very little lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and mild hops. Taste is caramel malty sweet with a mild hop bitterness and mild spice. Light to medium body with soft carbonation. Nothing really notable about this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice bold amber brew with a very thin head. A gentle swirl of the glass made a beautiful medium tan tight and glistening head. Sweet caramel, toasty goodness, dates and maybe a dull spiceless pumpkin. Great flavours here - I think I’d drink this style more if this was available. Of note - actually drinking this after a short visit to the freezer. Sweet bold caramel toasty stuff, light tang just before the finish, very malty, mild mild spice, ya. Well carbonated, good attentive mouthfeel. Thankfully CBC is playing classic NHL games tonight! My bum itches
