On tap @canoebrewpub. Thin, mild, plain, unassuming. Booze, butterscotch and English hops.

kramer (5827) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Tap. Pours a clear reddish amber body with a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is very light, a slight hint of butter, some toasty and caramel malt, minimal to no bitterness. The flavor is thin and sweet with some noticeable dactyl, a big turn-off for me. The minimal hop bill doesn’t do anything to hide it either. The malt is thin and husky with a grainy finish. Mouthfeel is slightly clingy with fizzy carbonation. Pretty poor attempt as a Bitter.

Ferris (12728) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 4, 2013
Daft - Toasted malts and lots of grain. Amber with a creamy beige head. Lots of grain with a dry bitter finish. Decent, would have been better with a lower ABV and they would have had a winner.

solidfunk (7627) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Well done for style. Pours clear orange with good head and lacing. Brewerly smell malt, like when you drive by the Molson factory during boiling time. Carbonation a little below average, good for style. Better than a lot of bitters I’ve had in Victoria brewpubs. On tap at Canoe.

Nose of grainy malt light marmalade earthy fruity hop notes toasted grains. Pours bright amber orange good clarity nice lasting head. Flavors of toasted grain marmalade lighter fruits and a moderate hop presence that is earthy and lightly fruity. Long lingering bitterness. Nice bitter.

HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2011
November 13, 2010 - Waterloo tasting with blankboy, jerc, mabel and tupalev. 22oz bottle courtesy of blankboy. Amber, almost gelatinous-looking with a raft of tiny dark suspended particles and an average white fizzy sticky head, even some lacing. Dry lightly fruity and leafy-bitter aroma, no alcohol and a hint of butcher’s paper. Does taste like a bitter, a bit dry and papery, herbal bitterness with a background of apricot marmalade. Solid body, almost harshly astringent, weakly carbonated, with a unwelcome long harsh bitter finish. Not bad, a bit odd, and overly bitter.

My bottle [650ml] shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev, jerc & mabel. Pours a clear golden-orange with tons of tiny sediment and an average size frothy off-white head. Aroma of UK hops and the "butterness" I often get from them, along with grain and caramel malt. Slightly watery flavour of UK hops, caramel malt and a touch of spices in the finish. Average bodied. Not great, just good.
