2.8/5 rDev -3.4%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5
Served in a 473ml can into an English pint glass.
Appearance: Light amber color. Decent transparency. Average size head.
Smell: The smell was definitely the worst part of this beer. I can't quiet pin what it is but the IPA also carried this scent or "funk" aswell. Almost cornish maybe?
Taste: Not too bad but fairly watery. A decent session beer and could be easy to drink quiet a few. Slight caramelish taste. Not too hoppy and kind of sweet. Somewhat watery as well.
Mouth feel: Goes down somewhat smooth and not too bad feeling overall.
Overall: Not really a beer to enjoy and savor but more of a swill. I could see it being popular with party goers looking to down a couple beers that are a little better than the regular macro-lagers but honestly not really that much to offer in terms of flavor and taste. Slightly less than average for me but might be the reverse with others.
Serving type: can

A: This beer looks very nice. A deep see through red with a hint of gold to make it amber-like.
S: Smells very sweet. I was so surprised how sweet it smelt. It's a little caramelly.
T: Still has that sweet caramel to it but not as strong. Hops come in too strong and cover up the nice malts. Still good though.
M: Very carbonated. Watery and light.
O: I tried this in Montreal Canada. It is ok but it has too much bite for my liking. I would only drink if I wanted a canadian ale. Amber ale's should not have more malt than this.
