A- Pours clear dark orange fading into red. A half inch of frothy head quickly disappears. Perhaps my glass isn't clean enough...

S- Light straw and dry grass maltiness. Some toasted notes, like the straw was grazed over the fire and singed. There's also a slight tin note that isn't pleasant, though isn't the worst thing in the world.

T- Just a touch of smokiness surrounds a lot of sweet malt. There's bitterness in the back of the mouth, a good balance out.

M- Sweetness is a little clingy to the mouth, but mostly a light drinker.

O- Ok. Would be better with food. Decent toasted flavors.

12oz bottle, best by 3/22/2015, served in a snifter 2/5/2015.

A- Darker amber body, one finger white head with nice effervescence; thick foamy head and nice lacing. Average retention.

S- Grainy sweet toffee, biscuits, toasted bread. Nice malty nose. Mild floral notes.

F- As in the nose, this is a nice malty beer. Toasted bread, caramel, biscuits, toffee supplemented by a nice floral bitterness. There seems to be that house yeasty mineral flavour as well, which makes for a very drinkable and mellow brew.

M- Medium bodied, not too thick or thin, good carbonation. Very drinkable, not unlike the other GLBC offerings.

O- Very good beer, nothing special or overwhelming but it's very tasty and drinkable. It's a well-executed beer which is the MO of GLBC. Buy with confidence.
