COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, pasteurised;
It’s rich amber colour and superb fruity aromas are complemented by a delicious blend of malty yastes. Toffee and malt combine with bitterness on the back of the tongue to give a balanced sweetness. This is followed by a refreshingly dry finish.

I was first attracted to the odd type of bottle.I found this to have a medicine like taste to it though. Very lightly carbonated. Has a dark amber color. It starts off bitter but then mellows. I was disappointed by this one.

Can LCBO Pours amber with thin off white head. Faint malt aroma with some sweetness. Pleasant creamy mouth feel, light carbonation, fairly light bodied. Toffee and roast malts in taste with sweetness fading to small bitterness. Lingering rather unpleasant aftertaste. I found this beer to be a bit insipid.

Beerbuddha (100) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - JUL 4, 2010
Appearance: This beer poured a clear, deep amber color. The head was a creamy, off white. I like the way the the widget makes the beer pour into the glass. It creates an interesting "beer falling down the sides of the glass" effect. Lacing was present throughout as was the head. Smell: There was a very sweet maltiness present right up front. Hints of toasted toffee with an interesting caramel aroma. Not much in the way of hops that I can tell. Taste: An immediate metallic(penny)taste followed by a sweet maltiness. Lots of toffee and breadiness present. As I let the beer warm up closer to room temp the coin taste goes away. Has a nice hop bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel: Medium, creamy body with medium carbonation. Overall: Not a great beer but also not too bad. I’d be very interested in trying this on draft or maybe even cask. The metallic taste was a bit of a turn off but I didn’t take off points because it did go away when the beer hit proper serving temp.

Bottled (PBF)
Clear amber color, small white head. Aroma of nuts, sweet raisins and sulphur. Light palate. Sweetish nutty, fruity flavor. Finish has some hoppyness. It is watery, but actually quite drinkable and close to the original.
