3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Canada via coop. Slightly hazy amber. Frothy head. Sweet yeasty aroma. Brown sugar and metal flavour. Sharpness from the hops. Long tingling metal finish. For the price Creemore Keller is much better.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Orange reddish tint, darker than most kellers. Thick tan head. Low carbonation. It was pretty much true to style. Bitter fruit maltiness, a little chaulky in the mouthfeel. Tannic and mildly bitter. Drinkable but otherwise not exceptional.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at Wild Rose, pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out very mild herbal notes and subtle toasted malt. Flavour is likewise very subtle, almost nonexistent, with light toasted notes and herbal notes. Drinkable enough, but no body or character. Very boring stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared with my wife. Medium amer with rich golden highlights and a chalky long-lasting head. Toasty caramel malts, slightly chewy, with a tangy hoppy finish. Very nice considering I was expecting a sweet grainy mess. Yes very nice for the style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2013 A beautiful pour. Stately red-orange with puffs of carbonation emanating off the bottom of the glass, and blowing a beige foam cover. Tightly wound aroma with nuances of melanoidin and cider with fruitiness pinched off by a note of pepper spice. The body tastes a bit green, and could perhaps benefit from 3-6 months more aging. Tannins are present, and although not badly out of balance, they are more distracting than I would desire. Otherwise, this is a nicely balanced brew, crisp, straightforward, yet with enough complexity and mystery to keep it interesting. Slightly nutty and tannic finish.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Underground. Pours orangey gold with haze. Good looking white cap, nice creaminess. Good streaky and clingy foam. Nose is of mild grains - rather weak aromatics. Taste has a light toasty malt note, grassy hops. End has a bit of grassy bitterness. The body is light, smooth off the tap, carbonation is pretty tight. Not feeling ’bock’ exactly, but enjoyable and approachable anyway, i just wish this beer had been more aromatic.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy copper with big soapy off white head that lasts and leaves great lace. Aroma is cereal, grassy, herbal, spicy yeast, mildly fruity and a bit of hay mixed in there. Flavour is grassy, mild crisp bitterness, cereal, and a spicy yeasty touch that mixes well with the bitterness. Refreshingly session-able.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a cloudy copper amber color with a big frothy white head. Aroma of cereal, toast malts, grassy hops and some herbal/spicy yeast. Taste is grassy hops, cereal and yeast. Has a nice smooth bitterness throughout blended with a crisp lager feel. Overall an excellent sessionable summer beer with a nice crisp bitterness.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Super bland and rather boring with mild cereal malts, grassy hints and a bit of a herbal hop emphasis on the finish. Just a rather plain beer lacking the lager yeast qualities of a solid Keller. Overall, very average

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that settles down to leave some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is grass and herbs with hints of caramel. Taste is a spicy herb bitterness with an underlying malty sweetness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a tasty brew that is worthy of sampling.
