Bottle, pours a light amber, light head, aroma is light, tastes a little caramel, maybe some straw, a light toastiness, and overall it was what it was.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle in NH. Pours clear, light amber-gold with a mild, creamy off-white head. The nose has simple bready malts and ripe berries. Medium sweet flavor with sugary bread, brown sugar, light caramel. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, more sugary and bready malts, caramel, no bitterness. Somewhat tasty but I wouldn’t want to drink a ton of this.

12 oz bottle from the four type variety case. Weak, insipid and anemic. The low cost of the case explains everything.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle @ home tossed via courtesy of BlackIPA. Tasted during the Pussypete presents Molson/Labatt Grand Tasting 2013 in my parent’s basement. Cheers! Pours a clear dark burnt orange appearance with a light brown head. Toasted malty, caramel, a bit nutty, light espresso aroma. Slightly watery, a touch earthy, coffee, burnt malty flavor. Actually not overly bland like the others in the mixer pack but still not very good.

Malty red lager. Dirty tasting. No hops to speak of. Not very good. Limited edition bottling. Meh.

I think this rating goes here...11.5oz, ’limited edition’ bottling. Poured a golden/amber color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, toasted grains, and some honey. Tastes follow.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a caramel-brown color with a large foamy tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was tart, tangy and malty with an undertone of cherry soda. The flavor was tangy and malty with notes of caramel, cherry, raising and a hint of toasty malts. Medium length tangy malty and cherry finish. Medium body. Eh.
