3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Crackery, whole grain or biscuit malt aroma. Medium orange, tall head, label is a bit overdone. Grainy upfront flavors followed by darkish lager flavors, then growing lagerish and finally a bit tart. Dry and Marzenlike. Foarm is metallic. Sessionweight body with a dry amber malt finish. Some starchy sweetness after a bit.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours deep gold with a reddish hue. Off white sudsy head. Nose of toast. Wood and butterscotch. Rich and malty. Good mouthfeel. Some very tasty caramel and bitter balance. Traces of yeast and perhaps a little smoke or charred wood. Extremely light chocolate in the slightly sour dry finish. Not bad for a buck and a half.

What struck me most about this beer was its stunning amber color - very appealing to the eye. taste contained hints of both fruit and nut with a slightly bitter finish. I may try it again sometime.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tasted in Toronto from LCBO. Tasted in dimple mug. Tasted at 5C. Colour is deep copper with a light sustained white head. Carbonation bubbles are evident. Estery, fruity aroma. Sweet malty caramel notes. Relatively sweet scent. The flavour doesn't hold up well relative to the aroma. Fairly boring taste. Watery, thin, with only a slight caramel hint. Finishes with a bitterness that stays in the back of your throat.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: APR 11, 2004 Clear amber robe with neglectable head that is fugacious. Shy malty aroma. Taste of honey and caramel, very fizzy on the tongue. A light fruitiness of peaches hides a slight tartness, lightly bitter finish, not too hoppy. Could definitely have been worse in this style.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper color, foamy head. Caramel, raw grains, a bit of yeast in the aroma. Malty flavor with a hint of saltiness. Could use a little more hops but still a good malt/hops balance. Average but good.

Copper colour, Some fruity notes in the aroma. Flavour has a bit of malt, and earthy notes in the finish. Pretty mainstream beer, with a watery mouthfeel.
