3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Their 2012 edition was released last week, with an outside party in the cold. Now, enjoying it inside. The head is beautifully creamy, beige, lasts the whole time and gives out decent lacing. The brew is clean and copper colour. Butterscotch nose with a little caramel and roasted malts. Wet refreshing, but kind of light mouthfeel. Mildly creamy when sipping the head (creamed up by the nitro). The roasted malt blends well with the hop, to not have too much burnt taste. Fruity notes (apples), nuts, molasses and very mild coffee. Too cold at first, but as it warmed up, it became much better. Easy drinkability as not too thick.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ruby red with a brown tint and a frothy creamy tan head. Berry, caramel and light roast in the nose. Creamy medium thin body with a light froth is smooth and slightly prickly. Canadians serve their ale too cold. Taste of light bitter roast start. with chocolate and a caramel and a light ginger spice. Like a mild but very easy to drink and finish. Slightly berry with a raisin. The best Clocktower Iíve had so far.
