4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
balanced between malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Nice caramel roasted flavor. A good head with lots of lacing on the glass, slight tart, hop aftertaste. I am an occasional craft beer drinker and this brand has the flavor profile I like. As well, the ingredients and taste profile are clearly communicated on the bottle. Lastly, I love the name “Barking Squirrel” and I will buy this brand again!

Citrus, grass and hops on the nose. Clear pale brown color with good white lacing, not much head. Dark malt taste, you can really taste the Munich malt. A very good lager

Slick logo and overall design of the Tall Boy can of Barking Squirrel Lager. Floral hops, golden light bodied with strong foam. Calling this beer a Vienna makes perfect sense. Crisp beer overall, I bet it would work well as a tailgate beer.

Bottle from Capone’s. Pours translucent copper toward dark straw at the bottom of the glass. The head is 2-finger and clingy, and laces well. Nose is grainy corn flakey malt, mild hops and earthy notes. Tastes vienna malty, with a finishing hop bite and smooth crispness.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From can: pours a dark amber - almoost orange with medium white head. I’m not getting much for aroma - maybe some light floral hops. tastes of woodsy hops, but rather subdued with a good blend of malt. decent hop finish with definite hop aftertaste. Overall, nothing amazing about this beer. However, considering the light body, smooth finish and no sacrifice of taste, this is an excellent session beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bière cuivrée ayant un mince anneau de mousse, qui laisse néanmoins des traces d’apparence runesque. Des odeurs houblonnées, maltées et caramélisées courtisent les sens olfactifs. Son goût est semblable aux arômes, agrémenté d’une douce amertume. Elle occupe bien l’espace qu’on lui laisse. Belle surprise, c’est en cannette. (394-131012)

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pint ordered from a Jack Astors restaurant in Calgary, AB on 10/13/2012. Colour: medium-dark brown with no head. Nose: a blast of something perfumey, raw wet grains, red licorice. Taste: medium-light sweet, light bitter, medium-light sour. Onslaught of light toffee, which turns into a high percentage dark chocolate, mid palate shows medium toasted grain. Finish is rather empty and void and dry.
