Got this in the Canadian BIf. Pours dirty orange brown with a medium puffy off white top. Aroma is sweet caramel and grassy malts. Fruity and a little sickly sweet for me. Not much hop presence.

Bottle at Black Rock Bistro, Parrsboro. It pours hazy amber with a tiny, bubbly head. The nose is soft, sweet, juicy, malt-driven, toffee, caramel, oily, stewed fruits, fruit cake and spice. The taste is bitter, grassy, leaf, malt loaf, light spice, wood, brown bread, chewy malt, fruit cake, spice, toffee and light alcohol with a short, dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Fairly basic stuff. Chewy and quite sweet. Not great.

Aroma is roasty malts, honey, yeast , clove and earthiness. Taste is sweet light roasted malts paired with citrus, lemon grass, sour grapes and some funkiness. Appearance is a clear gold with a medium pearl head that retains fairly well.

Hmmmm, this is a tough one to rate. On one hand, itís a miserable example of a Pale Ale. On the other, it has a pretty fantastic taste. The best user-friendly box I can fit this lilí number in would be Session Barley Wine. This just proves that everythingís in a name; this beer is too dark looking, too sweet tasting and too malty to be in this category. What it does have is a pretty dark ruby-copper body, a great lacing white head, a burnt toffee, caramel, whole wheat toast, fruity, herbal hops and sweet candy smell. The taste is quite sweet, borderline too much so but with just enough hops to keep things in check. The mouthfeel is mid-soft carbonation with a slightly oily, medium body. Perhaps a new style has been born, or an old one re-imagined/butchered.

Hidden_Pooch (410) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - NOV 8, 2014
Pours a beautiful clear amber with perfect little head. Aroma is straight from the forest, with stench of earthy moss, pine, caramel and toffee. Very malt forward with big toffee and caramel, and some resin in there as well. Has a medium syrupy body with low carbonation and low bitterness. A very strange pale ale, but interesting.

Spab (2939) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
500 ml bottle from Premier Wine and Spirits. Pours a murky copper colour with large, lasting, dense off-white head. Aroma is crackery grains, pepper, herbal hops and a sweet fruity note. Flavour is toasty grain, light sweet fruitiness as well as fairly strong herbal and spicy hops. Dry finish. Lively carbonation. A little unusual, but ok.

Thanks to gethinbeer. Pale hazy orange pour. The nose is lightly earthy and a little bit yeasty. A mild spiciness and a touch of honeyed sweetness. Has a little bit of light fruit and apricot in addition to some soft peppery character. Thereís an odd sort of vegetal character that I could definitely do without. Seems to have a bit of oxidation in addition to some underattenuation. Meh.

A golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, faint caramel malt with light grassy hops. In mouth, crisp caramel malt with light grassy hops, roasted notes, not bad. OttBottShare March 2014.

500ml bottle into an English pint. Pours a clear amber with a light peripheral head. Light citrus head, flavour of honey sweetness up front a bit of light bitterness. A bit oily on the palate. Kinda bland.

Deep amber pour with red aspirations - very clear. Medium head with good retention. Kind of light on the nose, really light actually. There might be a wisp of maltiness with a hint of fruity hops but itís hard to be sure. Thereís a lot more to the palate but itís still missing pieces. Thereís a really honeyed citrus thing on the very front end thatís overly sweet. Mildly bitter with some caramel maltiness. Not bad per se but I donít think Iíll have another.
