look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Deep orange/red colour. Pours a thick creamy head that laces the glace all the way to the finish.

S: Hint of caramel, and noticeable bitterness

T: Caramel, peppery, hints of bubblegum

M: Light to Medium bodied, well carbonated for the style, nice lacing.

O: I've had this beer at the brewery so I can honestly say that what I just drank from the can (in Canada) is not what you get there. For starters I served it too cold but the whole thing is different.
