Zywiec Tatra Beer

The first sip of this beer truly surprised me, pleasantly!
It pours a slightly dark golden colour, much like any lager but perhaps slightly darker. The head is full and white but vanishes almost instantly leaving no lace.
Aroma is almost non-existent, a hint of hard water smell but that is about it.
The first sip displays a coffee note of roasted malt. How on earth did they get that into such a pale lager? There is a noticeable herbal hop presence and a full feel, a bit of fresh hay and honey round out the taste.
For a pale clear lager this had a lot more taste than I'd expected and I am still trying to figure out where that roasted malt taste comes from.
Guess I'll have to 'sample' a few more of these.

It seems like it's bittered

It seems like it's bittered with saazsque polish hops (lubelski). It is a dry beer but with a good mouth feel. It does have a good malt at the front. It seems like a good smash mix.

Grand River Brewing Russian Gun Imperial Stout

Here in Ontario we need more Imperial Stouts!
Pours a dark creamy almost black colour with a thick tan coloured head. The head dissipates quickly but leaves a nice lace on the side of the glass and a thin cap on the beer.
The aroma is roasted malts, the characteristic bitter chocolate and coffee aromas.
Feel is hugely creamy, full and rich.
Tastes are lovely, roasted coffee, bitter chocolate, raisins and dates with a lovely light citrus finish to refresh the palate.
The alcohol is noticeable but only if you look for it, and the whole blend is superb.
It is the middle of summer when I am tasting this and it is great, I can only wait to winter to try this beer in the conditions which will make it most appreciated.
A great beer for beef stews and roasts. I think I will try to stock up a bit for next winter.
