Nose
A full aroma, built around spicy, sour grains.
Palate
Tangy, tart hops feature, but there's also plenty of malt backbone. It's bitter overall, but with a grainy dryness eating away at the palate. Some alcohol notes detract from the enjoyment.
Finish
Sweet cereals at first, becoming hoppy, dry and bitter. Rather thick and chewy.
Comment
A big-tasting beer presented in a striking silver can. Brewed in Canada, which may explain the distinct North American accent that runs through the beer.
