473ml can from LCBO. Pours a clear gold colour with one finger of white head that dissipates quickly. Aromas of hay and bread. Taste matches the aroma with notes of citrus and a mild hoppy finish. Light body with moderate carbonation.

Color dorato brillante con una schiuma bianca discreta e lungamente persistente. al naso i sentori del lievito, speziato, e del cereale sono ben avvertibili. Al palato presenta una buona carbonazione con corpo medio esile. In bocca ancora sentori di lievito e cereale con leggero amaro erbaceo finale. Sembra una keller.

Can. 473 m, Sobeys. 5%, compare with note above, new can design. Pours golden amber. Not quite crystal clear. Fine white head, 1/8" thick diminishing to ring to bottom of glass, minimal spotty lacing. Pleasant bready aroma. Nice balance of sweet caramels and noticeable grassy noble hops, more body than most. Would get again.

Virtually undrinkable ale yellow fizzy stuff, on tap at craft. Dry. Missing taste and all of the usual boxes.

Can bought at sobeys. Drank while watching the KC Chiefs operate awful clock management. Pours golden with a small island of a head. Aromas of sweet grains and not much else. Some fruitiness I guess too. Taste is mild and grainy. Thin bodied. Not that bad.

I want to like it but just can’t. Everything seems okay. Nice copper orange but aroma is grassy sweet. Taste just seems off, dunno.

473ml dented can. For all our alum we salute you when days of hockey were tough and you didn’t do much to mess with that. Grainy, slightly tart aroma, basic. Flavor is basic lager, not great, even though i like the thought behind it, it doesn’t do much. And the alumni association will be filled with a bunch of wusses anyways in a few years, this one is for Wendel and Scott Stevens.

Raistlin (315) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2015
Grassy corn straw aroma. Slightly hazy, brown orange body with a quick foamy off-white head. Corny grains and toasted flavour. Medium body. Average.
