3.69/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: A well carbonated body that shifts between ruby red, a full amber and a hazy brown depending on how the light strikes it helps to forgive the pinkie finger of head that did manage to stick around, but didn't lace very much.

Smell: Dry yeast to a backing of caramel malt and as the beer warms it becomes the smell of caramel malt to a backing of dry yeast. Decently strong and pleasent, but nothing to write home about.

Taste: Even tempered caramel malt starts off the beer, but it is very reigned in by a mixture of yeast, but it seems to break out during the middle of the beer, before it is reigned in again by the yeast and some dry floral hops. It's interesting.

Mouthfeel: The transistioning is peculiar but it's kinda interesting. The aftertaste is mild caramel once again reigned in by dry yeast which disappoints a bit but doesn't really cloy or build up on itself. Carbonation is there...but I wouldn't say it has a noteable presence.

Drinkability: This strikes me as something that would go really with with something gamey, like steak or lamb. The dryness is a bit excessive for my liking, but at least it settles down well.

Final Thoughts: Well, it seems there is another advantage having a trailer at Sauble Beach as still stuff is all around solid. A bit odd to have a thistle on a german style beer, but I was pleased by this offering, hope to see more from these guys. Thumbs Up.

4/5  rDev +16.3%

Pours a dark amber with a white frothy head in a stange glass.

Aromas of bloomed bread yeast, malts, caramal and florals.

Tastes very much like the aroma but with prodominent floral hops.

Mouth is a dry and light with a tinge of bitterness at the back of the tongue.

A pleasant drinker from my new home town.
