A lightly hazed reddish amber ale with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with butterscotch, light British hops, OK. In mouth, a smooth sweet caramel malt with grassy hos, burned notes, OK. On tap at National Capital Craft Beer Festival, August 18, 2012.

On tap at the Market brewpub. Dark amber body with a thin off-white foamy head. Decent hoppy aroma with malty and melon hints. Taste is well balanced and is slightly dominated by hoppy flavors. Ends with a decent bittersweet finish.

Brand new at the Glebe Clocktower for the first Ottawa Craft Beer Festival. Enjoyed opening day ! Pours a copper brown colour with an off-white head that creates creamy sticky lace. The aromas are mild at first with malts (mostly caramel and roasted). It does get better as the brew breathes and warms up. Medium-bodied with a slight dry finish, but still wet enough to be refreshing. Wow... hoppy taste adding some good bitterness. Not as much as most APA, but packs more of a punch compared to other Clocktower beers. Notes of fruits, pine needles, grapefruit with nice roasted malt in the finish, balancing things. Best head (and overall brew) I have had so far at this brewpub. OK, close to their Bytown Brown and Wishart.
