A - Pours a clear brown with a ruby hue and highlights. I didn't get much head in the poor, but a little warming and swirling coaxed it out. Low retention however.

S - Smells of roasted malt, mostly caramel and coffee. A bit of herbal and spice, but not much in the way of hop aroma.

T - I like it. Dark toasted malt flavor, caramel and coffee again, with a nice bready backbone. Bit of herbal/grassy hop character. A bit of bitterness to balance. Nice dry finish.

M - Little thin, but it's expected in this style. Otherwise nice and smooth. Nice dry/bitter finish.

D - High

Bottle thanks to Presario. Pours a dark brown color with shades of red showing through and a nice thick light brown head. Aromas of sweet milk coffee, fruits, and rich earthy malts. Very nice. The taste is also very good; initially sweet nutty and malty chocolate flavors, later more of a bitter roasted and coffee flavor. Leaves very milky and creamy. A very nice creamy mouthfeel. Very nice overall.

Dark cola brown with decent clarity, tan creamy head and superb lacing.

Clean and nutty scent, pistachios? Faintly roasted with a light, leafy hop edge and some chocolate. Slightly floral...

Nice blend of juicy, green hops and roasted maltiness. Refreshing and very easy to drink session beer. Bittersweet baking cocoa...creamy with lively carbonation and light, crisp body. Very tasty with a nice European lager character and leafy hops...like a warm summer night.

Very affordable Saskatchewan brew...and so tasty. Will come back to this one a lot as I went through the six pack pretty fast.
