look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured with almost no head at all, but retained a small lace through the whole glass. Brown colour, not very pale at all. Malt and nuts on the nose. Taste is nutty with mild alcohol and a bit of sweetness in the middle. Mouthfeel isn't spectacular, but I like the taste, so I give this a higher drinkability rating as I find it a very good session beer. I much prefer it on tap as I have had many times on visits to Calgary. I usually start to crave this beer in the Autumn, when I want something a little darker, but not very. Not a bad offering from Big Rock.
