Great amber-brown with a medium beige head that slowly dissipates into a thin ring. Aromas of malt, nut, dried fruit, hop and toffee. Absolutely wonderful sweet and bitter blend with a smooth palate. One of my favorites

Decently balanced actually. Has some hoppy pale ale feel with some oak. Pours red with some lacing. Finishes of bitter alcohol. Texture a little watery. Pint at the Metropole.

"A perfectly balanced brew"? Well, thatís a challenge if I ever did heard one. It pours with a very nice foamy head and a decent dark-copper body, so it certainly looks good. The aroma is reminiscent of a darker Belgian lager - fine, good, but not great. The flavour is darker malts and a hint of sugar, boosted by carbonation and a bit of alcohol to a moderately wet finish. Itís all right, certainly, and worth seeking out if youíre nearby, but does not rise very far above its competition (increasing everyday in B.C.ís crowded microbrew world).
