12oz brown bottle with the bottling code printed on the back of the label. Served in an imperial pint.
Pours a medium amber with a large, creamy, off-white head. It is mostly clear with adequate carbonation. The head hangs on for quite awhile and leaves plenty of lacing. The nose is of toasty, grainy malts and woody, herbal hoppiness. There are also underlying caramel notes as well. The flavor is as advertised by the aroma, the first half is dominated by the lightly toasted, grainy malts and the latter half brings in the herbal hops and a touch of fruitiness. The hoppiness lingers just a bit. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a slightly dry texture and just the right amount of carbonation. Finishes pretty clean.
This is a very enjoyable session beer. It is the hallmark of the style and the standard by which all others in the style are measured. It is extremely easy drinking and the flavor is well balanced and substantially full. For sure, this is one of my favorite session beers.

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
