12 floz bottle into Brooklyn brewery pokal.
A - a nice big off-white head fills up the glass promptl; good lacing and retention is adequate. the head settles to a good layer all over. the color of the body is a dark amber when let alone, and when held up to light not much changes, it is still just a good auburn.
S - a slight sweetness hardly presents itself: it is mostly a clean scent.
T - the taste right up front is bitter, like a vegetable- kind of bitter, maybe like arugula, not as much a sharp acidic kind from fruits, though maybe it closest to grapefruit rind. the finish is more of the same, while the aftertaste is slightly stronger in bitterness. no discernible malt sweetness on my palate, at any rate.
MF&D - the carbonation is perfect, crisp, cool, and refreshing. as far as feel and drinkability goes this beer is great, this would make a great session beer were it for the fact that I do not find the one-sided taste appealing.

Purchased at the LCBO as a single. Served at 5deg C in a draught glass
A- Opens ok. Pours a good 1" head that stays for a bit
S- Malt and yeast. Pretty smooth on the nose. Hint of grapefruit
T- Malty good. Not too roasted at all but lots of it. Touch of hops that are overpowered by the aforementioned malt!
M- Dry and crisp
- Ok. Nothing special and will not buy again. Don't get me wrong it's not bad, just nothing special that's all
This ok beer went well with... Hamburgers. I don't use a lot of toppings so for me it's meat and bun off the BBQ
