On-tap at Cole's. Some colour, a bit of hop aroma.But then too sweet to take seriously, though some citrus behind it. A lagerish version of orange punch? A bit above average mouthfeel, I believe from the use of brown sugar. Some drinkability to it, dessertish.Had it a year later on tap at Cole's again, and again its appearance and mouthfeel as strong points.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter - Fridge - 2009

Appearance: Pours a copper color with orange highlights. The head rises 1/4" and is off-white. No retention at all, it goes away rather quickly. No lace either.

Smell: Cereal grain, toasted barley, and an earthy mushroom aroma.

Taste: Pinchy alcohol and carbonation. More cereal grain and maybe a tad bit of hops. Not overly complex.

Mouthfeel: Lots of active carbonation in the mouth. A bite of alcohol in the finish.

Drinkability: A straightforward bock style beer. Pretty refreshing and solid, worth consuming in repetition.

Pours a clear copper with 1/2 finger head with decent retention. Smells mildy hoppy and malty. Tastes earthy, malty, and bitter. Good mouthfeel. Feels bland overall.
