Pint enjoyed on tap at Beer Revolution in Calgary. Obviously this hilarious politically-themed label has caught my eye during many trips to the bottle shop but for some reason I never did pull the trigger. Oh well. Here we go. Color is somewhere between golden amber and orange marmalade, with a light dusting of off-white foam, more lace on the glass than anything. Aroma is rather nice, the expected banana and clove notes accompanied by bright grapefruit and orange citrus. Palate is malt-forward but everything is well-integrated: Banana nut bread, golden raisins, marmalade, even something tropical (guava perhaps?). Body is solidly within medium territory, smooth and drinkable for a "big" style with a moderate prickly "bite". Finishes fruity and spicy, citrus and curry perhaps. Nothing sticking out like an ill-advised long gun registry. Nice winter brew that compares favorably with a few of the German classics.
