look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Color is reddish brown colour with light tan head and decent lacing. The head stuck around for 5 minutes or so before it was gone.

Smell was a little sharp, can smell roasted malt.
Taste of malt with some dark grains, hops in the finish

Carbonation was a bit strong. Mouthfeel was tingly from the carbonation and a creamy feel.

This beer is highly drinkable, easily could have a couple of these in one sitting. Good beer to keep in the fridge for friends poping in.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Now sold with the modernized red label. Pours dark amber with a 2 finger off-white head. Decent carbonation with malty and slightly skunky aroma. Taste is metallic bitterness then turns malty and sweet. Medium mouthfeel with some slight grittiness? Finishes off typical of mass produced brews. Good but nothing stands out.
