COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This English Session Beer has a delicious floral hop aroma and flavor. A heaping helping of organic caramel malt and touch of organic chocolate malt give this beer its beautiful mahogany color while organic oats from Bob’s Red Mill velvetize the texture. Smoother than an infomertial host at half the price! 13.5°, 30 IBU

Pint on tap at Beer Revolution in Edmonton pours a a pale amber color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is light citrus and grass with some toasted grains. Taste is a citrus and grass hop bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with decent carbonation. A decent ESB that is worth checking out.

Tap at Hopworks BikeBar. Light caramel nose. Copper/red color. Chewy caramel initial. Goes to a candyish place. Gentle but dark hopping. Balanced finish. Medium body. Okay but fairly one dimensional (as it should be).
