3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
34.1 cL bottle in Toronto airport. Pours clear and golden amber with a small white head. Aroma is toasted malty and light breadish. Bitter, malty and almost caramelish. More bitter and dry than sweet caramelish. Dry and roasted malty finish.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
In Montreal Airport as the last beer to cap off a fantastic week at RBSG - I needed to use my last CAD, and had just enough for this. The color is red and it has a small beige head. The aroma is slightly sour combined with notes of berries. The flavor is very sour, but still with some notes of berries, and a dry end. I wonder if brewing cereal has been used in this one.

Nut brown. Roasty and very sweet. Sugary and raw with traces of metal. Low bitterness. Useless!

this beer is so anonymous that I keep forgetting I already had it, LOL
Amber color, creamy head. No aroma. Very light caramel flavor, ordinary bitterness, very watery; a bit papery at the end. If I close my eyes, I may think it’s a Pale Lager, lame.
2010-03-17, draught at Raven Pub, North Vancouver, 5-4-4-2-8=23
Dark amber color. Light aroma of apple skins. Dry mouthfeel, and very light caramel flavor. Low bitterness. Also a bit stale. Bad.

Red mahogany color. As close to a Lager as a Vienna can get (side to side with the Kokanee they are difficult to distinguish). Amazing for the lack of roasted malt or caramel.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Peak’s Bar, Vancouver Airport. Clear amber, thin beige head. Some malt, bit stale. Not much flavour in mouth, some toffee. No real hop, some toffee, touch of dryness. Otherwise very dull, but no bad flavours.

0.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2006 Rich dark amber colour. No head. Aroma of caramel and grains. Initial taste is of nothing. This is followed by a mismatch of water and brewer’s caramel. Cloying and watery don’t jive, dude. Harsh carbonation. Ghastly canned corn and caramel finish. Heavable. Exemplifies Oakes’ Rule of Beer #1 - if a beer has mountains on the label and isn’t brewed in the mountains, it will suck.

Amber ale with a bland nose. Sweet malts without too much hops. Some fake caramel taste comes out...a sweeteed EX with some coulouring.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
courtesy of Florian Ruch - translucide bright amber colour under a firm and long lasting pale beige foam; aroma of phenol, caramel and red fruits; a bit oily and with a moderate malt body and carbonation; some astringency and a short moderately dry caramelish and fruity finish - not terrible

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft... Sparkling clear, deep amber ale. Malty, yet thin and refreshing. Nothing exceptional. Goes well with a smoked meat sandwich. If you haven’t tried it, you’re really not missing out on anything.
