Poured into a Stien

A- A nice carbonation with a lasting head. Clear light amber colour.
S- A very light toffee smell with finishes of slight hops
T- A very nice taste of sweet toffee and a slight hop finish, much like the smell. It is a little bit watery throughout.
M- Light bodied with lots of carbination
O- A classic beer from Sleeman. Nice to have with barbecued chicken or ribs on a hot summers day.

Poured from a 355mL can into a chalice
A- Extremely bubbly clear honey brown color with a delicate white head. Looks more like soda than beer.
S- Smells solely of sweet toffee and not much else, continuing the more soda than beer theme.
T- Upfront toffee sweetness over a very watery beer
M- Extremely watery and light bodied, bubbly and sickly sweet like a cheap soda
O- Truth be told I used to really love this beer prior to really reaching beer geekery. Now it just tastes one noted and plain paired with overwhelming sweetness.

Purchased at the LCBO as a single for $2.00 for a 341ml bottle. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass

A- Opens well and pours a 1" high white head that films out within a minute. Dark gold color and filtered clear

S- Kind of funky nutty scent

T- Not bad. For some reason people are giving this brew a bad rap and it's pretty good overall. Nice malty base and slight hops

M- Creamy and dry

O- Not a bad brew. Not a great brew but not a bad brew

Food Pairing

This nice blended brew went well with...... Korean BBQ. Short ribs with a sticky sweet sauce.

Enjoy
