T - Tastes slightly bitter, toasted malts
M - Medium-bodied, slightly creamy, with average carbonation.

Served from a 341Ml bottle
A: Beautiful ruby red color when pressed against the light. Otherwise the beer has a rather red/brown appearance and is fairly opaque. Small one finger head that died down quickly and left some, but rather minimal, lacing up the sides of my glass.
S: Not much in this department. There really is very little for the nose to pick up on. Caramel like malts are present but extremely faint. Sweet smelling with no real hop presence available to the nose.
T: The initial sip provides delicious caramel tasting malts. There is also a nice toasty character. The malts are soon balanced out by the bitter taste of the hops however. The taste is really not too complex.
M: Pretty thin feeling. Carbonation is minimal and the beer goes down quiet smooth.
O: This really seems like a dressed up session beer to me. Not really in the same league as McAuslans other brews in my opinion. Something I could sit down and enjoy if I had to but there's much better on the market. That being said it could make a good session beer for someone looking to branch out. Kind of bland but you could do worse.

one of the only beers on tap and a fancy wine white table cloth french place in old montreal. it pours perfectly clear dark caramel to amber in color, with a short lived inch of white head. the nose is boring, dusty old red malts and minerals. flavor is a little better, but this is not an inspired beer, despite being a local product on a fine food menu. it has almost no sweetness, which i like a lot, but the caramely malt doesnt make any sense without it. watery body, not enough carbonation, and a really light feel. its kind of an easy beer, very relaxed and drinkable. not intended to blow anyone away or anything, but an approachable beer to pass the time between great ones.
