COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The drink starts with a mug displaying a deep bronze colour, but the beer is crystal clear. The head is an abundant fine mousse (pronounced 'moose' for the cabin crowd), cream coloured and just spilling over the rim of the glass (if you got the good waitress, Yukon trained and all). As you raise the mug, your senses catch the fine aromas permeating from the glass, clean malty sweetness touched by spicy hop esters. The first draw of the ale cools the parched lips and moistens the cheeks. Full malt body takes over the palate; not sweet, but bold, fruity and persistent. A snap of clean hop bitter grabs the back of the tongue and springs into the sinus cavity, blending with the caramel flavours that have wafted back with the nectar that is this ale. But the swallow goes down clean, almost dry, and leaves only a slight lingering presence of the abundant flavours that were just there, and now gone! Many more draws on the mug, many more mouth-filling flavour experiences, and always that clean finish, saying "How about another?!!".

Luvystypotables (1965) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2014

3.2
BeerAndPonies (171) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 20, 2014
341 ml bottle purchased singly from Sobeys Liquor (from the "scratch and dent/some jerk tried to break a 6/8/12-pack, so here are the orphaned remainders to try" shelf), and served in a novelty Christmas footed pilsner glass. Pours a beautifully clear, deep ruby brown (very Christmasy), with two fingers of creamy, lasting well-composed head a little darker than light tan, patching the glass with spotty, webby rings of lace. Aroma is made up of dark red fruit, spice, toasty malt, caramel, and touches of mocha, flowers, and pine. Flavor is more restrained, with maltiness in abundance followed by dry, flowery, piney hops, and finishing with a touch of peppery spice on the tip of the tongue. Body is moderate and carbonation is low. It comes off luring you in with fruitiness and sweetness on the nose, but delivers a more regular pale ale flavor; a little distracting, but certainly not unpleasant. Nicely drinkable and a solid brew from our friends in the Yukon.

Pours a clear reddish brown with thin head. Nose is nutty and a bit of chocolate. Light smoked malts. Taste is the same with a light bitterness. A bit stale. Tasty amber ale from the North!
