330ml bottle, at 8% ABV, another part of the '1/2 Meter of Beer' mixed pack available here in Alberta.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, medium golden amber hue, with a teeming tower of puffy, rocky, and eventually Dairy Queen creamy opal head, which leaves a proper array of sudsy webbed lace all around the glass as it slowly ebbs away.

It smells of semi-sweet bready caramel malt, buttered white bread, a warm orchard fruitiness - peach, pear, and overripe apple - mixed table pepper, mildly spicy yeast, honeyed candi sugar, and a bristling, nose-twitching alcohol astringency. The taste is bready, somewhat biscuity pale malt, more booze-tinged apple, pear, and banana generic fruit bowl sweetness, sugary, floral field honey, active yeast bitterness, and a sidling, well-knowing, and sort of metallic edginess.

The bubbles are pretty well sublimated, barely a wisp of their initial splendour to be found at this mid point in the game, the body just on the lee side of a steady medium weight, and so-so smooth, the yeast and alcohol having their way right now. It finishes still on the sweet side, as things go, the caramel malt, additional sugars - alcohol and otherwise - kind of collaborating on the death knell (to me, at least) of this particular offering.

For the style, this does well enough, I suppose, providing a sweet, yeasty, and above all, boozy sort of experience. However, I am quite on the fence about such a plainly one-sided kind of deal - where be the hops, at least in the basest interest of balance? This comes off as the beer that all the platitudes and pandering in the world wouldn't be able to deter those who think that it's really all that good of an idea in the first place.

A: Pours a clear deep gold and sudsy white head with plenty of lacing.

S: Yeasty bread, overripe bananas, butter, vanilla and hints of spices.

T: Sweet caramelized bananas together with smooth vanilla and yeast. Extremely smooth.

M: Thick, coating and chewy with very low carbonation.

O: Surprisingly smooth and thick, this beer works well with plenty of meals or as a sipper on its own. Definitely worth seeking out.
