3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ok but not super interesting, as always with Beau’s. Has some roast malt and a pretty good grain profile. Can’t pick out the spice but it may be ginger or something. Finishes with light sweetness. Ok package. Pours amber with decent head and lacing. Average carbonation. Tap at Winterbrewed.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
smells lightly of malt and lemongrass from bottle. All juniper berry from glass. Taste juniper berry juice like then fades to sweet malt then far in the backround a little cooling from mint. A little warmth and a little hop bite on throat. Sticky but not 100% dry lips. After a while it smells and taste a bit like pepper, wood and smoked meat. cheer’s.

The beer pours a translucent copper colour with a thin rocky tan coloured head. The aroma is yeast, light fruit (almost tropical), grains, and some earthy hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is sweet fruit tones, yeast, grains and a hint of the spice. A decent bock.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2014 Scent of malt, spices, and honey. Clear golden colour. Flavours of ginger, cinnamon, honey, and malt. Medium body with mild carbonation. I would definitely buy this again.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
600 mL bottle. I really with they’d get away from this awkwardly sized bottle - too much for one glass, but not enough for two. Nice coppery colour with a medium-sized head that fades fairly quickly to a ring. The aroma has citrus and spice, but is also overly sweet. The sweetness isn’t as overwhelming in the flavour, though. It’s actually quite pleasant, with nothing overpowering. Decent body.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a light amber color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of spices is not overly dominant but still quite interesting with peppermint not easily discernable but juniper and orange peel easier to detect. Taste is an easy drinking mix of juniper bay, orange peel with light spicy rye malt notes. Body is about average with good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Enjoyable drink with just enough complexity; this one probably falls in the hit category for Beau’s.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
600 mL bottle. Pours dark copper with a thick white cap. Sweet malty nose, rye, orange, honey, mint or thyme like woodsy herbs. Slight sweetness balanced by hop and a touch of acidity. Moderate to full carbonation with an above average body. Quite tasty.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear copper, and a large whit head. Aroma notes include orange peel, citrus, banana, herbal. Tasting notes include vegetables, orange peel, slight cinnamon, thick palate feel, and a medicinal finish. Definitely lives up to its description, heavy herbal palate in this beer! Does not taste like your everyday Bock!!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
600 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear copper colour with small, light tan head. Aroma is quite bready with fruit and mellow spicing. Flavour is also big on bready malt with sweet fruit and ginger. No peppermint though. Average plus body. Solid.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Single at the LCBO. Pours a clean deep amber colour with a frothy warm cap, good retention and creamy thick lacing. Spicy nose with lots of bread malt notes. Eventually, fruits come out, like oranges with some light alcohol in the background. Rye bread taste with a mild sweetness and a little yeast in the finish. The spices are not as strong in the flavours and that is too bad. Still, an overall easy-drinking bock. Note: the peppermint seems controlled to previous version of this brew. I do not feel it.
