2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20

Amber color. Aroma of refined sugar. Dry mouthfeel, with a light nutty touch. Ordinary bitterness. The finish is a bit papery and metallic. Poor.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale amber pour with a white head. The nose has a kiss of sweetness and light crackery malt. Light yeasty esters but there arenít any phenolics at all. Apple and a touch of light pear. There is a little bit of berryish character - nothing Belgian about this one. Sort of a fruity amber ale.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
2012-07-06. Amber body with a small off-white head. Flavour is cereally malt, very light bitterness. 4+ Mild aroma, light earthy touches, and a sort of mushroom like character that is not entirely unpleasant but is a little strange. 4+ Average to light bodied palate. Inoffensive but odd, it reminds me of something I canít place. Bottle shared by GregClow

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
On tap @ Predator Ridge. Medium amber, thin cream head, poor retention. Aroma is sweet fruity caramel with a hint of bubblegum. A little strange. Palate is thin, with simple flavours of fruity yeasty caramel. This comes across as an amateurish home brew. Poor.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Caramel and toasty malts in the light sweet aroma. Clear amber body roped by a decent and lasting off white head that leaves some lace. Moderate bitterness offers the caramel and nutty malt qualities. Medium body with moderate carbonation. I donít know if Iíd consider anything to be Belgian-style about this beer but it is fairly drinkable. Sampled on tap at the Canucks game at Rogers Arena in Jan-12.
