3.76/5 rDev -2.6%
355 ml bottle picked up from the singles bin at the LCBO for $2.40 CDN. Served cold into a pint glass.
Appearance - clear amber color with a plethora of bubbles and topped by a finger of dense white frothy head. Tons of visible bubbles. The head has a good retention time.
Smell - big malty presence with loads of bread aromatics. A light fruitiness permeates as well.
Taste - significant malty with some grainy sweetness topped off by a bitter finish that turns sweet in the aftertaste. Very different and unique. Almost a coffee like finish on the palate too.
Mouthfeel - well carbonated and light bodied with a tongue tingling finish.
Overall - definitely a unique beer, kind of reminiscent of an amber, but realistically not that close, as there's a lot more in terms of different flavours going on and a great sweet finish. Definitely worth repeating.
