Good
Notes: An easy drinking summer ale with a distinct colour and flavour from the addition of beets. Citra hops deliver a foxy, citrus bitterness.

Review from notes. LCBO purchase for about $3.75 CDN.

Appearance -Deep red, beet red decent half finger of pinkish foam on top that fizzles away reasonably quickly.

Smell - Not much initially, with some beet sweetness at the end. Light metallic aromas otherwise.

Taste - Similar to the nose, some bitterness, a slight bit of metallicness. Not good at all until this beautiful little sweet beet flavor rides through for about three seconds. That is very nice, otherwise very mediocre.

Mouthfeel - Average, medium-light body, carbonation is about right. Non-descript which isn't bad here.

Overall - An interesting but marginally unsatisfying take on a beet beer. Too bitter to be enjoyed although the three second sweet beet interval is quite glorious and saves the beer completely.
