Back home in Canada for the 4th of July. I'm enjoying the canned offerings here in Ontario.

Clear coppery red with a short beige cap of fine bubbles. Decent head retention with a little stickage on the glass. Malty, nutty nose, mild citrus/pine nose, perhaps some faint smokiness. Balanced flavour, bittersweet overall with nutty, caramel sweetness up front and a slightly more citrusy back end. Lingering malt and smoke notes with a hint of cocoa. Medium bodied with average carbonation, decent texture. Quite nice overall. Nicely balanced and well crafted.
