Une bière de buvabilité morbide...IMPÉRIALE! Elle me fait tirer la langue pour mieux descendre mon oesophage, vilaine. Aucune saveur autre que de legers céréales doublé d’un arrière-goût florale cartonné.

Bottle [500ml]. Pours a clear orange-copper with a small diminishing bubbly off-white head. Aroma of bready malt, UK hops, toffee and some light spices. Decent amount of UK hops in the flavour, more then I expected, along with bready malt, light spices and a light, dry bitter finish. Average bodies. Not bad at all, nothing great but I easily drank it.

bottle. Deep golden colour, small white head. Aroma of caramel, bready malts. Taste is mostly malt, a little metallic twinge in the finish. Decent sessionable ale.

Purchased at the Niagara Falls’ LCBO on my trip there. Pours a clean amber colour with a creamy off-white head that stays a while, looking like froth on a good coffee. Beautiful grain malt with hop perfume notes. Smooth mouthfeel with a slight dry finish. The taste is mild, so easy to drink, but with still lots of character. Caramel malts, nutty hints and decent hop bitterness. Probably a great brew to have at a Wales pub, along a great conversation.

Metallic and quite nutty with some bitter UK hops upfront. Quite nutty finish, lingers...... Medium bitterness, would be a great session ale. I agree with the bottle description that this is a brown ale, not a golden.

More hoppy than your run-of-the-mill UK blond, as the LCBO has stepped up their quality. Drying. A little cheesy aroma. Medium mouthfeel. Big foamy head. Decent drinkability. No dumb blond

Amber golden pour with a thick off-white head. The aroma is of fairly spicy UK hops over a soft crackery malt base. A little bit of caramel and some soft malt sweetness. Fairly clean although there's a whiff of pear in the nose. Decent stuff. They call it a brown ale, but I'm not sure I would.

From a bottle, pour a brown copper with tan head with little retention. Aroma carries a lot of earthiness, spices, ginger. On the palate,very soft, not much bitterness. Rather metallic finish.

500mL Lickboe bottle. Pours a very nice coppery amber with a large beige head, lots of effervescence. Aroma is pleasant, some toffee, caramel, and biscuit malts, grassy hop character. Somewhat sharp. Flavour is even better, with waves of mild and pleasant malt characters which I mentioned, and some good bittering hops throughout with a piney finish. Body is light, with a smooth mouth-feel, and it goes down really fast. Would make a fantastic session ale. Nothing too crazy but I really don’t think that was the intention, so I believe it serves its purpose well.
