When your brewmaster comes up with a recipe as good as this one, you let him name the beer whatever he wants. Here’s what makes our recipe so darn good: a rich burnt orange colour, darker than most lagers, a smooth, medium body with a bold, but pleasant, hop taste, full of flavour, unlike your traditional ’cold-as-ice’ beers with no taste, made with only the best ingredients, including Canadian & English Malts, and German & Czech Hops.

Amber pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is floral/earthy hops and a mustiness. Flavor is flat caramel malt and floral hops. Medium light body with ok carbonation. Ok beer just not at its best I’m sure

googleimage83 (70) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 30, 2016
Pours clear red-brown with fizzy tan head; not much lace. Aroma of sweet malt, some cherry, a noticeable root beer quality. Taste is well-balanced and clean; caramel, bread, some berry, mild and refreshing hop finish. Solid product.

Decent taste, one of the more unique beers served at the airport... okay the only one. Best one on list, ranked high because of this. More seection and it would rank lower.

JPDIPSO (5673) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 22, 2016
Bright copper color with a moderate, foamy, mostly lasting light beige head. Pale and toasted malts, along with herbal hops. Quite clean smelling. Light sweet malts in the front. Some caramel, toasted malt and a hint of nuts. Just enough bitterness to help quash the sweetness and lead to a fairly crisp finish. A decent Vienna.

From can, a gift from a friend. Cheers Evan! Sparse off white head, dark amber colour, clear. Nice sweet malty aroma: caramel, toffee, grain. Bitter taste with a little sweet aftertaste. Medium body, short finish, flat. Quite malty, but interesting.
