Had this one at the Regina Festiv-Ale on Friday night. 4 oz sample.

Nice amber colour with a decent light beige/off white head.

Aroma is lightly malty with hints of floral/herbal hops.

Flavour is pretty straight forward. Well balanced between the malt and hops. Caramel and nutty malt with leafy, herbal hops.

Not a bad beer. Worth a try.
