2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught at C’est What’s ’Fall Festival of Craft Breweries’. Pours a clear orange with a spare quick diminishing frothy white head. Aroma’s sweet, a bit sugary, along with very light floral hops and grain. Flavour’s also sugary sweet with a bit of fruit, some light hops and a light bitter finish. Average bodied. Just O.K., I’m not loving this, too sweet.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bomber from the Church, served cold in a tulip glass.
App.: Hazy deep amber with a decent dirty-blonde head.
Aroma: Some decent malts marred by a definite infection – organic acids, light barf, I wonder if the Lactese Falcon had something to do with this...
Palate: Medium+ body, moderate effervescence.
Flav.: Better than the nose, meaning a good deal less nasty, decent biscuit/caramel, med-roasted malts, a little earthiness, a touch of peppery Noble hops, still with organic acids lurking in the shadows; dry with a strange mix of brightness and fairly aggressive bitterness, not enjoyable, with an earthy/malty finish and a touch of barf.
I am getting a little tired of this brewery. The few times I’ve been to the Church, I wasn’t impressed with the overall friendliness of the staff. And $10.50 for a bomber?? Gimme a break! Go to BC, go to QC, go to USA and a $10 bottle is some mind-blowing beer. Even without the infection, this wouldn’t be worth the money.

On tap @ Volo.
Candied nose, light copper, has the tiniest tan head. Taste is generic red cough drops, sticky sweet, tough to drink a whole pint. Poor offering.
