My parents picked up some beers from British Columbia when they were up in Canada and brought them back to me.

Appearance- cloudy copper color, decent size head, nice lacing

Smell- slight bit of raspberry

Taste- raspberry

Mouthfeel- light to medium bodied

Drinkability- Overall I thought it was very refreshing and a great summer beer. If I can get my hands on more, I will.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

341ml bottle poured into pint glass 15/6/13

A salmon liquid with just a hint of pink in the short lived finger of foam, just a random patch of lace before the head vanished

S raspberry, honey and a hint of herbal hops, basic but about what I expect just a little dry cereal

T raspberries are half way between sweet and tart, really not much going on but again that's about what I expect from a plain old raspberry ale

M light and a little fluffy but quickly flattens out, leaves some slickness and faint raspberry and grains lingering on the finish

O nothing exciting but a decent summer patio brew, one the wife would like

I know what I'm getting but I get it anyways, no surprises here, not disappointed but not impressed either
