2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
341 ml bottle. Clear medium copper, small foamy tan head fades fast. Sweet caramel malt aroma. Tastes like a thin bready malty lager infused with caramel/toffee/vanilla flavoring.Sweet, but not cloying. Light carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Some faint bitterness. Winter lagers don’t generally work, leave it to the ales. LBW Lagerboys Be Wary)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught) At Victoria’s Bard & Banker Pub. Pours a copper body with a thin, white creamy head. Nose of melon and slight tobacco. Flavour of cantaloupe, citrus hops and red malt. Some nice and enjoyable aspects to this fairly low-key winter seasonal.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 5.5% ABV
Amber color, with small head. The aroma smells a bit of dirty water, and light caramel. Some caramel flavor, with a papery and nutty character, a hint of generic spices, candi sugar touch, ordinary bitterness.
Not very good.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On draft. I think this is a lager for ale lovers? Honey caramel and crystal malts don’t make a fresh crisp lager in this case apparently. Just a really sweet one, with no finish. Not terrible, but lacks character.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at The Met. Nice dark amber colour and a bit of head, but flavour wise it’s pretty much a bust. Okay if you’re allergic to hops. It’s a bit malty and way too sweet. I expect more hops in my beer. Case closed.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Pours brown with little head. Aromas of cereal, light caramel, and malts. Full and slightly sweet. Flavors of dough, brown sugar, honey, and malts. Definite lager bread/cereal/dough notes otherwise could pass as a decent ale.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours ruby-amber with thin, dissipating head. Aroma is bread, caramel, vanilla and a touch of honey. Taste is bland at first, but sweeter as you go. Lighter-bodied, thin and lagery, well carbonated with a long, fading candy finish. Easy to drink, but a little sickly sweet for my taste.
