Aroma is one of beer’s most complex features. Aroma is propelled by lively CO2 and dampened by pillowy heads - especially nitrogen foam. Click on a term below to add it to your tasting notes.

ComradeK (1145) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 20, 2016
Draught at The Cornerstone, Kenora. Pours a clear medium amber, with a small off-white head, which dissipates quickly, leaving little lace. The aroma offers faint grassy and light lemon hops, along with grainy malt. Mild lemon hops up front give way to a surprisingly light body, with mild toffee and grainy, bready malt notes. The finish is fairly short, with a little grassiness. Better than the Keith’s IPA, but that’s not saying a huge amount.

Bierdimpfe (501) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2016
Slightly hazy copper color with moderate activity. Faint creamy light brown 2 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with poor legs. Flavors of corn syrup, faint noble hops, dark malts. Thick sweetness, a little sharp. Slick medium to full body with extra prickly carbonation. Light finish that shortly lingers with grassy notes and sweet grainy sugary toffee feel. Overall bad quality craft. Very faint watery flavors. Unbalanced, too syrupy. Bland, a little flat, lacks freshness. Adjunct feel.

cmacklin (880) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 21, 2016
On tap. Pours a clear red-brown with a small, off-white head that dissipates to an outer ring, leaving spotty lacing. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, bread and light fruit. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, bread, light fruit and a hint of nuts with a dry, mildly bitter finish. Light body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Better than I thought it would be.

very, and I mean VERY faint sweetness and caramel here. Their "best" beer in my opinion

Cimbasso (772) - - MAY 13, 2016
A reddish-brown colour with a thin white head. Sampled on draught. Sweet aroma and a thinnish taste dominated by caramel. Maybe a slight hint of nuts. Hardly any bitterness or hop flavour. A poor brew with little character, sweet and rather thin tasting.

Kauge (1617) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 5, 2016
Tap at Puck in Toronto. The most pointless amberish brew I’ve ever had. Lacks everything, most of all body and flavour. On the positive side: could finish the pint while watching a game. So not exactly disastrous.

ChadPoole (315) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2016
Pours dark red with a quick desolving off white head. An aroma of malt and nuts. Has a malt, nut and fruit flavor with a medium body. Good summer beer

Tranquillity (1876) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2015
Draft. Red body, thick white head that disappears quickly. The aroma is sweet and buttery, while the flavor is acidic. Nice for a hot summer day compared to a lager.

Deep Amber red and clear body with a minimal white head. Atoms of grass and yeast. Taste matches aroma with an overall sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
