3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a light brown/golden color with a light head. Aromas include a touch of caramel and grains. Finish is malty and toasty. Overall, an easy drinking beer that is different from the hop heavy American beers.

Not as buttery of a flavor/palate as I was expecting. Nice toasted malt flavors and very smooth.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer has a nice amber hue with an off white head. It has a slightly sweet malty aroma which I enjoyed. It is pretty light and easy to drink. Oddly thereís a bit of a herbal hoppy flavor, not at the front or back, but in the middle of the palate.
I loved the taste and aroma of this beer; this is a 4 star beer if it has just a little more body. It is a little lighter than I prefer so I deducted half a star.

Definitely not my favorite beer. The best characteristic of this beer is the pour. 16 oz self carbonating draught can pours in to a glass nicely!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 mL bottle in a gift pack from LCBO, shared by my bro, served cold in a tulip glass. Clear deep copper with a fair light tan head. Lightly fruity, quite earthy, slightly nutty, very stark and British, a little roasted, some toffee notes; dry with a gentle bitterness and a fruity, British malt finish. Meh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught can. Aroma: Lightly sweet caramel and a bit of earthiness, some tobacco comes through. Appearance: Rich, dark copper pour with nice clarity; solid foamy bone coloured cap of head. Flavor: Caramel and pipe tobacco; this really reminds me of the smell of my grandfatherís pipe in taste form. It might accurately be described as peat, but it doesnít quite go that far for me. Palate: Medium body, oily texture, flat carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: This was a pleasant surprise; didnít expect much, but itís a beer that connects to fond memories for me.

Can, at home. Muted aroma, maybe a bit of sweet malts and a touch of dried fruit. Super creamy, smooth palate. The flavor is straightforward but solid. Sweet malts, mildly bitter hops. A true pub style session ale. Simple, but really good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Clear, bright copper with a small just-off-white head. Aroma is simple but fresh and pleasant - caramel malt, slight nuttiness, mellow hops. Flavour is similarly balanced and enjoyable, with nice semi-sweet malt up front, some nut hull dryness, bit of bread crust, and a nice hoppy bite in the finish. A nice pint.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear amber pour, no head. Aroma of.............yup, still searching.............faint apples, wet paper, light cereals. Watery mouth feel, low carb. Finish is low on bitterness, slightly sour apple finish, wet paper, minerals. Tasted like they butchered this beer for the US market. By far the worst in the pack.
