2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very mild and lightly sweet aroma with a lightly ashy note. Clear deep golden amber coloured body topped by a low, large bubbled, white head that recedes rapidly to ring. Sweet caramel malt flavour with some sweet citrus candy flavour. No real hop character apart from a very light hop bitterness that just barely takes the edge off and keeps this from becoming cloying. Metallic in the aftertaste. Very strong carbonation to the light and watery body. Tulip glass. Fridge temperature. Bottle (BCLS at 8th/Cambie, Oct-06).

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
An amber copper lager with a thick onctuous white head. In aroma, cream corn with honey! In mouth, a sweet cloying beverage with extra sweet and metallic mouthfeel, with burned nuts. A Rickards wannabee...

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
bottle: Poured a light amber, large off white foamy head.
Aroma is sweet honey and some floral hop.
Sweet and lively ,
nasty medicine finish.
I actually like their Imperial Lager, but this is a dissapointment. I’ll rerate one again Sunday Afternoon.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Pours a golden amber with a monumental off-white head that quickly diminishes to a lacy ring of foam. Aroma is toffee and lightly floral hops. Medium body and carbonation. Starts sweet and stays that way. The taste is like Honey Nut Cheerios with a slight suggestion of hops. A syrupy, one-dimensional beer.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bright golden-brown colour. Light, sweet with honey and cracker notes. Rather cloying. The brewer was right. I didn’t like it.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Amber colour with minimal white head. Sweet malty aroma with a hint of honey and spruce. Quite sweet at the front and at the finish with minimal hop presence. The caramel malt taste dominates.
