2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle poured into glass. Brownish red color with an off white head. When held up to light it is a deep red color. Malty smell with a hint of alcohol. Has a pretty sweet taste to it, not much hop taste, just a nibble at the end. Easy on the palate, could certainly tip back a few. Overall a good entry by Labatt.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It has a deep reddish amber color body with good clarity. The head is thin and white in color. Its head fades out quickly leaving no lacing behind. The aroma has sweet caramel and malty notes with some grainy cereal notes as well. The flavor is rather simple, thin and light. It is similar to the aroma with a sweet cereal grain and light caramel malt. Hop flavor is light and grassy. It adds a good bit of bitterness as well as some metallic notes to the finish. The body is light and its texture is thin with a sort of light fizzy carbonation.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

This beer is not much of a bitey red just very light and thin like the rest in the sampler.
