This 750 ml bottle picked up in Montreal "on sale" is actually better than I expected. Pours a hazy golden, light brown with a large bubbled & off-white head that leaves an impressive amount of lacing. Aroma has fresh hops, with a medicinal background that I've found in other wet/fresh hop or harvest beers. More resinous than I'd personally choose, but think it's appropriate for the style. The flavour has the bitterness and tang I associate with "c" hops, although I wouldn't have been able to call out Centennial without the label. None of the citrus or tropical fruit tones which often accompany those hops and a rather abrupt transition from thin caramelized malt to pure bitterness.

A beer I'm glad to have tried, but also glad I didn't buy a case.

Bottle: Poured a dirty hazy beige color ale with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of light grainy notes with faint hops. Taste is a huge letdown with faint aroma of hops with some light unrefined grainy notes and a watery finish. Body is quite full with great carbonation. Huge letdown with almost no fresh hops notes.
