From notes... On tap at Boston Pizza...

A - Pours a clear amber colour, finger of head with little retention and no lacing.

S - Scent is bready and grainy, hints of grassy notes and burnt sugar on the finish.

T - Much like the nose with the grainy bready malt notes dominating, the subtle grassy hop notes on the finish and a lingering bready flavour.

M - Medium, smooth and wet.

O - Easy drinking but not much in terms of flavour. Reminiscent of a Molson Canadian with red food colouring.

Pours a clear, brown color. 1/2 inch head of an off-white color. Great retention and good lacing. Smells of pale malt, hint of roasted malt, hint of hop, and slight rice/corn. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt, hint of roasted malt, hint of hop, and slight rice/corn. Overall, good appearance, but aroma, blend, and body are lacking.

A: Reddish amber liquid with 1/2" of cream colored head that left a nice lacing.

S: Yeast, sweet, with noble hops.

T: Candy caramel with grassy hops and yeast. Extremely sweet.

M: Thin viscosity with soda like carbonation. Feels like a soft drink.

O: too sweet, not enough hops and a thin mouth feel makes this a forgettable brew.

Pours a clean amber color with a tan head. In the aroma, a small sweet roast, but quite faint. In the taste, a bit sweet in the malt, that has a small caramel like roast. A smooth and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a lightly dry and sweet roast in the aftertaste. An easy ale to drink, a bit sweet and it lacks aroma.
