Grindstone knows how to entertain with the "Broadhead Business Plan" on the back: build small brewery /brew tasty beer/ sell some/ drink more/grow beards/quit day jobs/hire friends/make rap video... but describing their beer as "not for the laid back drinker" is absolutely wrong, this is very sessionable and not offensive or abrasive. Some caramel malt and a tiny bit of hop citrus is present, but otherwise this is a light/medium bodied brew you could have a couple of, and enjoy, without thinking too hard about. Crystal clear amber body with a thin white head. Nice carbonation level. Nothing to write home about, but nothing to write bad about.

Lives up to it's name. Amber in colour. Very grainy aroma. Bitter finish and a bit metallic. Very strange taste at the end. One was enough.

Smell is very grainy, cereal, pours clear amber with an off white head. Fairly light bodied, mildly bitter but in a somewhat "off" way. A bit of a dirty taste. Needs a bit more, tastes pretty standard.

Can from the LCBO, nothing special but it is a tasty beer, like the bitter hit at the end. Nice break from some over the top IPA’s
This is just good simple beer. I suggest you try some.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
473 mL can. Pours mostly clear copper-amber pour, couple fingers of slightly off-white head, fair bit of lacing. Peach and hop nose, some grain. Taste has a stronger malt presence, but still a fair bit of fruit. Alright but just.

Poured from can. Golden colour with minimal head. Slight haziness. Floral aroma. Sweet malt flavour, medium mouth feel. Well balanced sweetness with slight bitter finish. Pretty good.

Purchases at the LCBO. Minimal aroma or taste. At least it’s refreshing, though.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
473 ml can from LCBO. Pours a pale amber colour with small white head. Aroma is sweet malt. Taste is same. It’s not a bad beer, but it’s definitely boring.
