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)

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.

Poured a clearly and slightly amber yellow color with a full white head. Aroma is a tad skunky with some floral pale malts and light fruit. Taste has lots of grain and floral flavors. A little thin. A tad sweet with some skunky flavors towards the finish. Finish is a little flat with more flowers and rice. Overall it’s ok, but a little light.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Moriartys. Dark honey orange brown with a foamy off-white head. Toasted wheat flavors. Somewhat vinous. Slight caramel sweetness in the middle, but finishes quite dry. Strong carbonation. Have not had this style often. Tastes like a mix of a Belgium Blonde, an Irish Red, and a German Oktoberfest.
