Bottle poured into a standard glass at a sushi restaurant in Calgary (holy crap, an Asian restaurant with something from a craft brewer! Let's hope that becomes a trend). A pale cloudy straw yellow with some rocky, sudsy white head. Aroma of citrus (orange, lemon, lime), spices (clove, nutmeg, ginger, coriander), and a malty depth not typically observed in this style ... Has a clear lager malt flavor as well. Interesting. Some bubble gum and pineapple notes vie with the aforementioned citrus. A brown spice flavor gathers steam over the course of sips (nutmeg, which is actually in the brew according to the label). Moderate body, seems on the thick side for the style, with the carbonation not violent but certainly assertive. Finish dry, rather earthy even. Unique wit. I enjoyed the emphasis on the malts and spice. My bottle may have been a tad old.
