COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

JustDrinkIt (261) - Arizona, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Amber pour with amber tinted white head. Aroma is nutty, dates and light pear. Flavor is more of the same, bready, nutty.

bulldogops (1681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 16, 2014
Rating #916 - January 16, 2014 - 473mL Can from Coop - Pours a clear amber with a foamy white cap, recedes to a ring, little retention. Aroma is grassy saaz hops, lots of grain, light citrus. Palate is slight pale malt, cereal grains, and more grassy, earthy hops, light citrus. A decent hoppy lager.

blipp (7896) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden amber with an off white head. Sweet toffee malts, faint hoppy bitterness, and a clean malty finish. Drinkable, but not something worth re-visiting.

screigh (625) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Pours a clear copper color. Very thin off-white head. Aroma of grain and noble hops. Sweet almost candy or fruit sweetness.

Slipstream (2401) - USA - JAN 6, 2014
This is a good lager, with flavors/aromas of yeast and fresh grains. The name got my attention - barking this or barking that can be a funny name for something or other. It reminded me of Frank Zappa’s record label, Barking Pumpkin, and of the goofy names you see some vintners give their wines.

Leafs93 (2059) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2014
Pours a deep burnt orange with a medium fluffy tan head that quickly dissipated to a trace film. Aroma is floral, caramel and toast. Taste is sweet with mild hop bitters. Medium bodied, slick with a little stickiness. Nice Vienna as it is crisp and clean while remaining flavorful.

sudomorph (1043) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
473ml can. Pours a cloudy dark caramel with a three finger, off-white head made up of large bubbles that fades quickly. Aroma has hints of caramel, grain, and fruity apple juice. Taste is slightly malty with a hint of fruityness and a slight bitterness on the finish. Medium body with a low-medium carbonation. Pretty clean in the mouth with a smooth texture and finish. Overall not bad and worth a try. Slight fruity notes blended with a balanced taste. Cheers!

Slickysim (8) - - DEC 28, 2013 does not count
Cannette 473ml de la lcbo. Arôme de levure et de beurre. Couleur ambrée/rougeâtre effervescence moyenne. Légèrement trouble. Amertume présente pour une lager, goût un peu acide, arrière goût de boue. Texture plus épaisse en bouche qu’attendu. Pas un fan.

Spive (12) - - DEC 27, 2013
Out of a can into a glass. Pours a moderate head which doesn’t linger. The colour is a browny amber colour that is moderately transparent. Decent taste with medium bitterness and average carbonation. Still fairly generic but but a notch up from your high production pilsner/lager.

kevnic2008 (10975) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle. A solid if unspectacular amber. Nothing wrong here but not flavorful and just sits there.
