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.

look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

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.

Pours a mild red color with a thick frothy head into my glass. Color is spot on.

Not much in the way of aroma. Sweet malt? Little else though.

Umm, what is this supposed to be? A train wreck? Little or no hops, suspect malt and not much else.

Lingering weaksauce malt. Yeck. Not my favorite.

Avoid.

Fine red ale!!

12 oz bottle poured into nonic, dark amber with off-white head

Apple notes, toffee, and bready finish.

This is a great Canadian beer, but I wouldn't say it is the best I have had.

The smell is sour and metallic, overall I wouldn't say this is a go too, but it is superior to Dark Horse, and most likely over Labatt Blue.

341mL bottle. Pours a hazy dirty copper color with no head. Minimal lacing. Aromas of caramel, malts, earth, and a bit sour. The taste is mostly of the malts. Some sweet caramel along with a little sourness. Earthy. Not all that flavorful. Thin mouthfeel. It nothing special. Overall, I dont need to have it again.
