650ml bottle. Sub-4 dollar bombers make me nervous in this economy of ours. Oh yeah, I haven't yet had the pleasure of saying a big "fuck you", for co-opting the Bad Hare Day moniker of your northern Alberta neighbours - so here we are.

This beer pours a clear, dark ruby amber colour, with two fingers of workaday foamy beige head, which leaves a few random streaks of lace around the glass as it quickly sinks away. Not too shabby, but I am way too oft bitten to be anything less than tightly guarded right now.

It smells of caramel/toffee malt, tinged by a sour breadiness, some stale orchard fruitiness, a hard water minerality, and tame dead leafy hops. The taste is bready caramel malt, quite musty in its bearing, a weakly generic fruitiness, some of that hovering Minhas house yeast astringency, and rotting forest floor leafy hops.

The carbonation is average, a tad frothy, but generally supportive, the body medium-light in weight, and a tad too tacky to be deemed all that smooth. It finishes off-dry, the almost-sour fruity malt still not doing much to make a friend of me.

Baby steps, is perhaps the best thing I can say about this offering - there are real beer notes to be found here, scattered about the lingering crappy LCD ethos of the actual brewer. A blend of good and bad, and we all know what happens when you multiply a positive and a negative, right? This is the answer at the back of the book.
