COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A blend of premium Belgian malts, plus German and Pacific Northwest hop varieties gives this luscious, copper-hued ale a wonderful complex aroma, a rich depth of flavour, and smooth drinkability.

mcberko (9220) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 25, 2015
On tap at Red Truck, pours a fairly clear amber with a small white head. Nose is restrained, with notes of toasted bready malt and very light floral hops. Flavour is similarly restrained, with toasted bready malt dominating with a tinge of caramel. Pretty boring stuff, but clean and balanced. Not exciting.

Oakes (13426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2015
Light amber, light caramel nose, caramelly not real exciting. Real basic sweet amber.

Draft - Pale malts and light caramel. Clear copper with a decent white head. Caramel and a woody hop that has a slight bitterness. Not much depth here, very plain.
