look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Well, it's this year's Banjo Bowl, and as a Ti-Cat fan, I'm rootin' for the Roughriders, so I thought it was time to review the beer know as "Saskatchewan Champagne"

Appearance: Solid finger and a half of head that retained well enough but did not lace. The body is a pale gold that has steady carbonation.

Smell: Has a bit of a mild swamp scent to it. Warmning doesn't help either way as vegetation and earthy note dominate the nose. It's not strong enough to call it offensive, but it rubs me a bit wrong.

Taste: A straw and corn malt with a bit of earthiness in the background which turns to an almost cabbage like taste and ends with a small dose of mild earth hops.

Mouthfeel: The sweeter malt dominates the aftertastes with only notes of the earthiness. The carbonation helps out the entire beer as well, but the transitioning is a little abrupt.

Drinkability: It seems a bit lighter and crisper then most adjucts, but I wouldn't call it a work of art. It's a summer. A Macro, but somewhat more tolerable then most.

Final Thoughts: I guess this is another part of the Roughrider fanbase I'll never understand, much like wearing watermelons for helmets, and I for one am grateful not to be one of their number if I had to drink this stuff at games.

4.09/5  rDev +42%
look: 3 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A: Straw gold filtered, little carbonation, 4 fingers of fluffy white head.

S: Saaz hops, grainy, hay, spicy green hay, a touch of molasses.

T: Very balanced with a light sweetness right from the start, all the hops big spicy green hay and touch of molasses all coming through, wheatgrass. I think it’s a tribute to the freshness of this beer.

M: Medium almost syrupy bready body, medium low carbonation.

O: This one surprised me in a pleasant way. Cool old style can takes me back to old Germany, which is appealing if you want an old style beer. The smell and taste deliver in balance. The sweetness took me off guard a little, perhaps a little too much in this beer, but the freshness of it makes me want to keep drinking it. Really it’s a great beer.
