Central City Brewers + Distillers Red Racer Maple Bacon Ale Amber Ale at 5% ABV (C$6.75 at Sundance Wine Market, 650 ml, no bottle date or best before)

Appearance: clear pale amber with one finger of light tan head, good retention and spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: savoury and smoky, biscuity, caramel. (5/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-light bitter, light salt. (5/10) Palate: medium to thin body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (3/5)

Meh. I’m not getting a whole lot of bacon or maple. There is a slightly savoury or smoky flavour, but it’s not clearly bacon. A thin and not all that interesting amber. (11/20)
