2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can: Poured a clear golden lager with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and light lacing. Aroma of light adjunct notes and overly sweet malt is not the most interesting. Taste is also more adjunct base then I had anticipated with not much other characteristics showing off and not much hops presence. Definitely not one I will drink again though I seems to be off compared to previous ratings.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brownish orange pour. 473 ml can from LCBO. Bready aroma, little but of hoppy pine, also kind of an acidic, not-quite-natural thing going on. Flavour is slight caramel and slightly nutty maltiness, hops in the finish but almost non existent. Unremarkable, but decent balance, and considering its Moosehead, probably gonna be a good option in a lot of bars.

From can at LCBO - pours dark and clear with a frothy head. Not much of an aroma. Taste has very slight hoppiness, a nice change for a lager.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500mL can from the LCBO. Pours crystal clear orange. Aroma is full of fruity hops. Has a light body, with a general "hop" taste. Some more IBUs would be nice to go with all the hop flavour. Good for a lager.

I tried this beer on October 22, 2011 after purchasing from the Yonge/Wellesley LCBO outlet in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer pours a translucent golden red colour with a thin short-lived light tan coloured head. The aroma is light caramel, grains, and some floral hops. The mouithfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is light sweet malt, grass, and cereals.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
473 ml can from LCBO, served cool in a tulip glass. Quaffed in draught form on several occasions...
App.: Clear light copper with a night yellowy-tan head.
Aroma: Floral, dank, lightly fruity, woodsy hops backed by decent caramel and brown sugar, a little white pepper, a bit of biscuit and bread crust.
Palate: Medium body, quite relaxed effervescence.
Flav.: Malrtier than the nose, decent fruity caramel and brown sugar, biscuit, bread crust, the hops is toned down and limited to a bit of woodsy, leafy resin, still a bit floral; dry with limited bitterness and a reasonably pleasant slightly perfumed malt finish.
This squirrel’s bark is worse than its bite. Enjoyable nonetheless.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
473mL can from the Lickbow. Kind of odd that it took this long for them to get it available there. Pours a clear orange with a large white frothy head. The aroma is very nice, some mild but sharp hops, I’d say more German in character than Czech, with some nice caramalt underlying them. Flavour is also quite nice, mild, indistinct but nice creamy malt body, with some perfumy hop character that is quite pleasing. Absolutely no off-flavours at all which I appreciate. The only criticism I can come up with is that it’s all just a tad more bland than I would prefer, but it’s not a crippling flaw. Over-all this is actually pretty decent, but I had very low expectations. It’s nice when a macro brewery can actually produce something semi-decent. I even had this after a Celebrator Dopplebock. Keep it up!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
473 ml can - pours a clear amber gold with a decent sized thick white head that laces fairly nicely. Aroma is surprisingly nice - fresh, floral noble hopping with a sweet toffee malt background. Flavour similar, but with an odd cooked vegetable presence that knocks the beer down a notch. Well-balanced, with a brown sugar sweet finish. Sticky-sweet in the mouth. Not as bad as the overall rating suggests, closer to Sam Adams Boston Lager, but not quite that good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap. Amber pour with a small sized head. Some floralness, a little toasty and a touch of citrus. Weaker body.
