3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Gig’s - taps a lightly hazed copper-orange with a puffy lasting off white cap. Moderate carbonation. Aroma is robust with Munich red malts - toasty and noble hopping, some light fruitiness. Medium bodied creamy mouth feel, smooth malt accented character. Flavor is fairly well balanced between toasty-bready malts and herbal woody hops - long dry bittersweet nutty malty finish with a hop bite. If I closed my eyes I’d think I was drinking a fresh Dusseldorf Alt. I enjoy this lagered amber ale and it is probably the best Albier we have had in this market since the Duckstein supply dried up.

Can LCBO: red beer with tiny beige head. Sweet, hoppy nose. Taste is of caramel, malt, and earth. Sticky mouthfeel with a decent bitter finish. A little thin. Just okay.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
473 ml can from the brewery via Steve (thanks!), served quite cool in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear deep copper with a orange-tan head.
Aroma: Rich sweet bready malt, bread crust, melanoidin, clean.
Palate: Medium body with moderate+ carbonation.
Flav.: Much like the nose with nice bready maltiness, a touch of woodsy hops, clean; dry with gentle bitterness and a pleasant, if somewhat light finish.
Not bad at all.

Interesting brewery, but this particular beer, not so much. Not that there’s much you could do with the style. It’s a decent example, I suppose.
