3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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!

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A solid if unspectacular amber. Nothing wrong here but not flavorful and just sits there.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Easy going amber with some usual aromas. Nicely with malt, some leaves, caramel and a bit of sugar. In the end a bit dry with some sweetness. Great in quaffness and drinkability. Good one.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours out of the bottle in a clear amber colour with low head and low body. Aroma of malt and hops. Taste of malt, caramel, nuts, torf and leaves. Quite easy and nice to drink, solid amber.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, 5%. Buttery aroma. Clear amber colour. Small off-white head. The flavour also starts a little buttery, turns spicy, perhaps from the hops, and finishes on a sour grainy note.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours clear tea amber with small off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit, malt, and hops. Bitter, hoppy flavour, with malty and fruity notes and a touch of yeast. High carbonation. Sour-sweetish aftertaste. An OK amber lager, even though I am not a great fan of this beer style.
