3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Moxies, Kingsway Mall, Edmonton. Served in a straight sided etched "Big Life" glass with a fill line. Gold colour, impressive head - white, creamy a good inch of foam in the glass. Left a lot of lacing. Slow rising carbonation bubbles. Some grainy notes to the aroma. Flavour was sweeter than I expected. Malty, a little fruity. Aftertaste had a bit of grain. Nlot too bad, and as Duffman stated, not served ice cold.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2006 Nana & Grampa are home with the kids, and my wife and I are out for dinner and a movie. Hadn’t been to Moxie’s in about 10 years (as we both recall, we thought it was less then average). Pleasant surprise on 2 levels: the food was great, and they have 2 "special brews" that are exclusive to the restaurant chain, brewed by Big Rock here in Calgary. This was golden yellow, with a lacy head. Faintly fruity aroma, decent pale malts with a creamy mouthfeel. Best of all-- not served at -10 degrees, so you can actually appreciate that this was half-decent.
