2.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep chestnut red with slight off white head. A bit of caramel malts in the nose and nice malty/toasty finish make this a decent, but not outstanding brew.

Dark copper-red in color with a sparse off-white head. Malty with just a hint of hops. Very drinkable; a good "session" beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Malty sweetness is very caramelly and fruity, recalling tons of cherries and berries. Problem is, that’s about all this aroma can offer, and it does get tired after a while.
Caramel and toasted malts combine with the silky fruitiness, but their union is quiet and somewhat boring. There is nothing to get excited here, and nothing to hook you for a subsequent sip. Their most ordinary pint that day.
Prayers at church don’t mean a thing if you don’t believe.

Fizzy white head tops the reddiah amber hue. Undersized bready caramel malts leave a lot of room for the earthy and floral hops to take, but they only do so moderately in the nose. Watery finish, very simple light-medium palate. Rather dull.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Caramel malt aroma with low, leafy hops. Clear amber body with a low white head that recedes to partial cover. Caramel malt flavour is thick and sweet with fair finishing bitterness that only just takes the edge off. Light body with fairly low carbonation. Sampled on tap at the brewpub with beerbuzzmontreal, MartinT, Rastacouere and Yowie.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Good red colour, nice job of getting bitterness from 28 IBU. Can get lost in the "big beers" available, and the most malty tasting which is still moderate, but still a show of craft. Recommend for the less adventurous, or with food. Thinner mouthfeel, active carbonation. Fresh clean taste.

At big Seth’s going away party on 11/2/2013; was an awesome day! Aroma is earth hop. Flavor is thin, watery, bitter, gross. This is a huge miss.
