Poured on-tap in a shaker pint at a Margaritaville in Canada. The beer is a dark, ruby red coloring with no head, but a filmy ring on the surface. Nose of roasted character, caramel, and nut, but all very subtle. Flavors of sweet caramel forward, with a roasty backbone, and subtle, bitter hops at the end. Crisp and light in mouth. Clean, minimal toasted grain aftertaste. Crisp, clean finish. Typical macro-style red.

Serving Type - 473ml can poured into a nonic pint glass.

Appearance - This beer is red. Ba dum tss. But in all honesty, it's a deep amber colour when held up to the light, with some copper tone's in there towards the edges. Poured with two fingers of slightly off white, thin head which dissipates pretty quickly (eventually into a soapy looking substance), leaving behing a good deal of lacing.

Smell - Picking up mostly grains, with some light toffee and malt. Not much else.

Taste - Very grainy and 'bready'. There is an almost certainly artificial toffee and caramel flavour which makes the beer incredibly sweet. Almost no hop flavour can be detected. Tastes like an over-malted macro lager. But that's still better than a typical macro lager.

Mouthfeel - Medium body, medium carbonation. Feels like sand on the tongue, but not really in a bad way. Honest.

Overall - 3/5
