Buddy of mine brought me one after work one day and I was really surprised. Easy drinking beer perfect for summer. Excellent taste with a smooth finish. Bubbly for a beer with so much flavour and no aftertaste to speak of. Color isn't a huge deal for me but is appealing nonetheless. One of those beers you can drink all night.

I bought a trifecta of sleeman beers - the main ones - so I'll try to do proper reviews of them. i've had them before and they are very drinkable beers, but reasonably well done.

First on the hit list is the O Draught. It pours a dark yellow and is almost orange, but not as orange as the Honey Brown. The head is approximately two fingers in height and dissipates very rapidly. It's a good clean smell - mostly just malty but there is not a large hit of adjuncts, which is nice. The taste is simple - a little bubbly on the tongue with some malty goodness and virtually no aftertaste of any sort. It would have been nice if the brewers had introduced some hoppy bitterness to give it a more exciting taste - but I think they were only going for a well made lawnmower beer, and I have to think they have created a good one. If you're looking for an introduction to Canadian pale lagers, look past Molson and Labatt and grab this instead.

It's just an ordinary pale lager. Standard stuff, but yknow.. well done.

Served in a pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep gold, ligt bubbles off the body very thin white head that barely rose to 1/10".

Smell: I would rate it lower but it doesn't stink and that's the only reason why. Smells like nothing.

Taste: Light malt and hops, little rice feel to it that makes it very easy to drink.

Mouth: medium carbonation, exceptionally smooth.

Overall: Not a bad brew, I know it's not meant to be great but it is just right especially right after meal. Salud!
