440 ml can purchased from LCBO for $1.95 CDN. Served cold into a pint glass. Advertised as 4.8% ABV

Appearance - Dark copper color with a bit more than 1 finger of frothy white head. Very dense looking. the beer is crystal clear and has sparse bubbles floating to the top. the head lingers for a very long time thanks to the nitro-can.

Smell - A few sweet aromas and quite floral wild a mild alcohol undertone.

Taste - Sweetish and quite mild. Virtually no hope presence and the bitterness is very low for a bitter. Flavors while full do not linger nor are they particularly strong.

Mouthfeel - Wet finish, with creamy mouthfeel. Body is thinner but compensated by the remains of the head.

Overall - Not a bad beer to me a bit of a cross with English Pale Ales. While decent there's nothing spectacular about this either. Worth a try.

Clear, light amber in colour, with a thick, rich, creamy staying head. Faint hop aroma. Taste is very light, subtle and creamy. A delicious balance of soft malts carrying faint notes of nut and caramel. Faintly carbonated, and mouthfeel is very round and smooth. A very delicate yet full-flavoured beer.
