On tap at a Swiss Chalet restaurant.

Dark amber, with a 1-finger head which quickly dissipated.

Rather a non-descript aroma, with a slight metallic odour.

A basic taste, again somewhat metallic, though that went away some ways into the beverage. In fairness, it paired reasonably well with the fish and chips I was having.

Mild to moderate carbonation.

A slightly above-mediocre beer. The one thing I like about it is that it is somewhat easy to find in common restaurant chains in the area. Something to fall back on if the place I'm eating at doesn't have anything else better.

Serving type: on-tap

a good standard easy drinking red beer. branded as an irish style, this seems distinctively Canadian to me. a lovely darker copper amber color with a tall lacing head that would get even higher marks if it lasted more than a minute or so. a pleasant mix of malts, less dry irish red than American style amber to me, with a touch of earthiness, a bit of smoke, some caramel sweetness, and a peculiar yet enjoyable nutty element. the carbonation is great, tons of little micro bubbles instantly refreshing me and getting my palate ready for a big afternoon and evening of beer consumption here. this is an all day beer at a lower abv and such a quick finish for the style. a much better than average brew here, impressive for a Molson coors offering, and one id be happy to drink again. a little adjunct and metallic on the finish, but its minor and doesn't deteriorate much from the overall experience.
