On draft at the brewery, Vancouver.

Rusty amber with off white finger of foam and streamers.
Autumn leaf malt nose with some spice.
Hot cross buns, apple skin hit, lots of warm winter spice (noble?) hops, and a hints of butterscotch.
Cinnamon-pepper finish and dry linger.
Medium, clingy, sherbet-y fizz.

Not especially lagery. Spicier than you'd expect for a Cali Common. Almost ESB level of complexity (and hopping.)

More than enough to hold your interest.

Serving type: on-tap

This is a much more nuanced version than the earlier ones available . The colour is darker than Anchor Steam and the flavour bigger and more complex. The yeast issue seems to be resolved and the beer has that perfect combination of ale and lager that makes for great drinakbility. A sessionable beer that arrived just in time for the heart of summer.

On tap at Alibi Room in Vancouver.

A: Light brown liquid with 1/8" white head.

S: Light aroma of grass, pears, wood and apples.

T: Heavy bready Munich presence, biscuit, grassy hops, wood, caramel. The strong yeast takes away from the pleasant flavour profile in the finish. Flavour degrades as the beer warms.

M: Medium to thin viscosity, a dry finish and low carbonation.

O: Enjoyed the malts, but the yeast left an unpleasant aftertaste. Hopefully this was because of the first run, but this beer did not have nearly as pleasant of a yeast profile as Anchor Steam.
