Tall boy. It is indeed a ruby red body. There’s a lot of sweet crackers, biscuits, and malts. Some cherry macaroons. Fairly forgettable.

Amber body with off white head. Malt aroma. Flavour is along the sweet side but everything seems balanced with it. Good body as well.

Brettsky06 (121) - Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 8, 2016
Pours a dark red color, nice caramel aroma with a touch of sweet fruit. Taste is nicely balanced between the hops and malts

ljthiessen (1075) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 6, 2016
Can. Reddish-brown pour with a beige head. Aroma is nice caramel and some red fruit and berry notes. Taste is that of a well-balanced amber - some caramel malt and fruit notes but with a bit of a bitter, dry finish. Nothing special, but a tasty, balanced amber.
