Aroma; light Pinappley American hop essence. Some maple syrup/malt. Taste; Carmel malt well balanced against toasty malt. Quite hoppy to a level that almost overpowers the malt= a good thing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask pour at the brewery on 7/17/09. Pours a light orange, decent head. Not a whole lot going on in aroma, but picked up some vanilla and caramel. Expected some rich deep sweetness, but this was very balanced and had a good bitterness. Smooth amber. Nice to see a good 5.1% ABV beer by Avery just to prove they donít have to go big on everything.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mondail 2009, Montreal. Reddish-brown with a small beige head. Mild aroma of grapefruit and caramel. Flavour is appealingly drinkable, with c-hops, nuts, and thin caramel. It gets a little tinny just before the end, and finishes with a gentle bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at brewery. Pours a clear reddish amber with a medium tan head. Smells slightly of toasted malts. Taste is toasted malt upfront, with earthy hops, and a fruit like malt middle, and a bitter hop finish along with a hint of tartness in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is clean, low carbonation. A very nice "smaller" beer from Avery.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
deep orange color with an off-white, small head. Nose gives lots of caramel malt. Tough to get the hop in the nose on this one with all the caramel malt, but the taste proves it in bitterness. Good amber.
