reebtogi (4242) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 27, 2012
341ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that dissipates quickly leaving a few spots of lace on the glass. Aroma is light caramel with some mild grass and nuts. Taste is caramel sweetness with a grassy and herbal hop bitterness. Light to medium body with light carbonation. A decent offering that is much better than your typical macro.

Pours a deep amber. Taste has a little perfume - the faintest hint but there is something there. On tap at beervbistro.

SlovakSniper (3225) - Out Of This World, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 27, 2012
En fût au Beer Bistro. Une proposition calquée sur la Rickard’s Red. Des arômes et des saveurs de malts faiblement sucrés et de houblons au profil métallique. Bof.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2010
On tap @ Volo. Aroma is candied malt, amber, tiny custard head. Taste is a milder malt than the nose. Light bodied, balanced, sweetish. Fair.

Another solid King offering. Copper pour, Bready aroma, grassy hops. Nothing wrong with this. A good quality beer, but really nothing to rave about.

probstblueribbon (2944) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2011
341 ml bottle from LCBO via my brother, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear amber with a decent light tan meringue. Aroma: Bread, light biscuit, hay, grass, wheat/grain/cereal, light fruitiness and caramel notes, decent. Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence. Flav.: More fruitiness and caramel than the nose, bread crust, decent malts, a bit of British earthy/nuttiness, very little in the way of hop notes, nice for style; dry with minimal bitterness and a pleasant light caramel, bread crust, slightly sweet-tasting finish.

Viennas are not exciting. This one is well-made though.

Bouteille 341ml. De couleur ambrée-dorée et claire. Nez de caramel sucré aux notes rôties et terreuses, léger de noix, de miel et de houblon herbeux aux notes florales et métalliques. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture aux faibles notes crémeuses et aqueuses. Faibles notes fruitées (agrumes) accompagné de notes de cuir terreux lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi rapidement d’un moyen goût de grains de malt caramélisés et très légèrement rôtis puis en finale l’on retrouve un léger goût de noix (voire d’arachides naturelles) asséchant avec une légère amertume de houblon herbeux ainsi que quelques notes métalliques. Post-goût moyen-court et un peu sec, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux avec un léger goût métallique, rôti et de noix.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2012 341ml brown bottle. Gold and clear in the glass. The head is large and white with decent lace rings. Nose has sweet malt with some light fruitiness. Taste is fairly clean, grassy notes, grain and light bread, light caramel. Finish has light grains and grassy bite. Light body with medium carb. Overall light and drinkable, but I prefer their Pils.

[bottle] Grain and toasted malt aroma with some faint apricot and apple and a very slight touch of ethanol. Clear amber under a thick, off-white ring. Toasty and very malty flavour with faint cardboard and a clean dry finish. Low bitterness. Light body, moderate carbonation, very slight bitter finish.
