earthy brown color of tree bark, with a tight foamy head that is just off-white and hangs around in the form of an ever-present collar. weak aroma of nutty grain and lemony hops. not much there. light to medium body builty on a foundation of steady CO2 bubbles. surprising sharp and earthy flavor that is completely new to me. this beer has a character all of its own, i keep thinking earthy in my mind, but not in a hoppy sense. this flavor dominates, which is followed by a salty/lemony hop bite that is actually quite assertive for a lager. easy to put away a few, once you become friends with the flavors going on here.
on of the boldest lager beers i can think of, unique and full of character. i don't know if i'd always reach for this first, but i think it will always stick out in my mind. another winning original.
Serving type: on-tap

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
