3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Finally get a chance to try this one (as I forgot to pick it up all these years). Bomber from the LCBO. Pours a slight hazy golden-amber colour with a frothy warm cap, good retention and creamy-foam lacing. Sweet malty nose with hints of honey at first, but the toasty caramel malts and biscuit come out giving hints of butterscotch. Not much hop in the aromas, but found in the taste covering the milder malts. This gives the wet mouthfeel a little dryness. Refreshing flagship beer, but a little light for today’s Pale Ale standards. More malty than hoppy.

Bottle from the Beer Store. Pours a cloudy pale orange with a big white head. Nose is toasted malts, biscuit some very light citrus notes. Sweet malt start and subdued caramel and citrus. Only minor bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation. Needs a little more character.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 mL bottle. Pours an orange tinged gold with a lacy white head. Biscuit, toasty grain, caramel, beeswax, citrus peel and a touch of woodiness. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Mildly sweet all over, a nice bit of bittering hops and a sticky finish. Good sessionable beer.

Nice coppery color with good clarity. Odd aroma that I could not figure out. Flavor was muted and overall pretty unremarkable. Probably won’t do this again.

Pours the colour of treated lumber with a thin picket fence white cap. Pretty unremarkable: muted aroma, subdued malts & hops, & a slightly disconcerting coppery after taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle from the lcbo. Pours a clear, copper/gold colour with a one finger, off-white head. Aroma smells faintly of grain, caramel, citrus, and slight floral hops. Taste is slightly on the bitter side. Slight citrus, pine/resin, and caramel with a short, hoppy/bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Slightly oily texture but also refreshing. Overall pretty good. Very drinkable with lots of flavour. Would probably buy again when I’m in the mood.

Picked up at the Ancaster beer store. Pours an almost clear copper, white head that dies to a thick ring, some minor lace. Nose is malt, really smells like wort. Tastes sweet and bitter.

Tasted at a pub by the bottle. Was actually not a bad beer. Interesting Pale Ale with enjoyable taste. Good for session beer.

Actually not too shabby at all, light citrus hop notes, toasted malts and a great balanaced sessionable character. The pour is rather bland and boring looking though with a clear golden body and a thick white head that foams down quick. overall, just an okay brew.
