3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Darby's. Hazy yellow gold with a nice dense cap. As always at this pub, great steady lacing. Aroma of bread, subtle rye, and toffee are upfront. Taste is more bread, with subtle toffee malt. Some raisin in there. Ah. There's the rye. Not prevalent, which is kind of disappointing to me. A late medium dry finish, with medium carbonation. It's not too bad for an amber I guess, besides the colour. Quaffable.

On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is very subtle, with light rye, bread and not much else. Flavour is more interesting, with some fresh hops, rye and a hint of butterscotch that becomes a but more pronounced on the finish. Smooth, balanced and decently flavoured, but rather bland. Decent stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Cloudy light amber color, with creamy head. The aroma is light and a bit dusty, some paper. Smooth mouthfeel; some caramel flavor, with a different profile given by the rye, drier, more dusty; quite strong bitterness, some anonymous resins, but not much hop quality shining here.
