T- Very good. Malt and yeast with caramel hints
M- Dry and crisp
O- Very good. Nice refreshing break.
This wonderful little beer went well with... roast potatoes with bacon

On draft at Milestones. Pours a caramel colour with moderate white head leaving substantial lacing as drunk. Semi-opaque with visible carbonation. Aromas are of caramel malts, toffee and biscuits. Tastes are sweet caramel malts and some cereal. Hints of toffee. A decent beer from this Moosehead subsidiary.

473 ml can poured into a tall pils glass.
A- I like the cartoonish can art. A normal pour created a 2-finger, khaki head. The body is a clean, copper with moderate-heavy carbonation. The head settles in at 1/4-finger and the lacing is abundant.
S- Very "beery." Doughy malts and lighter, spicy hops. Hints of caramel, especially after it warms a bit.
T- Caramel-like malts dominate at first. Hops are lightly spicy through the middle and the finish is doughy/bready. Maybe a little nutty and buttery with warmth.
M- Medium body with moderate carbonation. Lightest hop bite. Pretty good for the style and strength of this brew.
O- A nicely balanced amber lager. No frills, but nothing off-putting either. My wife returned to the cottage with this one from the LCBO. It was a nice surprise and didn't seem too expensive compared to the "domestics." I'd buy it again the next time through CAN.

On tap at The Snooty Fox.
Pours a deep reddish amber color with a huge off white head that persists for a while. Aromas of bready pilsner malt with hints of caramel or burnt sugar. Rich bready maltiness with a fair bit of melanoid and spicy hop. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Nice malty rich lager, I enjoyed this.
