2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear and brown with a thin white head. Aroma is faint with malts and resin hop notes. Taste is slightly malty and quite bitter. Finish is bitter and abrupt. A bit uninspired.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
It pours bright mahogany (like iced tea), with peach highlights; the head is off-white and frothy. The aroma has notes of: peach, toffee, sweet-malts, and a touch of coriander. The taste is medium sweet that finished bready; there are notes of: coffee, toffee, peaches, grapefruit, and honeydew-melon. The palate is light bodied, quite aqueous, medium-light carbonation. Overall, interesting flavours, but very watery – could really benefit from a big booty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a manuka honey colour with a thin white cap, looks sexy. The aroma is light, bready, malty, biscuity, nutty, with a bit of floral hops, well done and delicious. The flavour is very english malt style if that makes sense to anyone but me. . . .huge on the bready biscuity notes, nutty, with a hint of caramel sweetness, a touch of floral hops show up near the end for a bit of balance. All and all a well crafted beer, it’s nothing mind blowing, but it does what it does and it does it well.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I tried this beer on March 23, 2012 after purchasing at the Queen’s Quay LCBO outlet in Toronto, Ontario. The beer poured a translucent copper colour with a thin white head. The aroma was sweet malt, floral hops, and nuts. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was nutty, wooden, with hints of caramel.
