3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[on tap at brewpub]
Sweet caramel aroma with some fruity esters, though clean. Clear dark copper with a thin white cover and ring. Weak, sweet flavour with toffee that quickly trails off to a moderate bitterness. Clean. Light body, moderate carbonation, clean finish. A clean beer, apparently.

Pours a wood brown with little or no head. Aroma is leather bitterness with malt. Taste is good malt body with a semi-dry bitterness. Moderate to low bitterness. The flavours are not pronounced and you have to fish for them. Well balanced but was looking for something more.

Okay amber body with little head, what do you expect from a brewpub brew on tap! Yet, the flavour is all right, plenty of malts and a bit of caramel and hops. Just all right.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at ’Volo Cask Days 2010’. Pours a murky orange-copper with a small bubbly white head. Nice pleasant hoppy aroma, very citrusy, though a touch sweeter then I prefer. Good hoppy flavour, juicy and citrusy, slightly astringent in the finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good and better then I expected.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Byward Market in May ’09. OK at best light copper. Slight peach, ok aromatic hops, maybe too sweet? Not sure. Caramel. Tasty with solid hops, quite thick (which was a surprise), good fruit, some caramel, solid bitterness, very very drinkable but the thickness may be a touch to heavy after 6 of ’em. Near medium bodied, great carbonation, good malt middle, average bitter finish length. Best beer on tap with ease.

Cloudy copper/amber poor with a thin head. Aromas of fresh malts and yeast, yogourt, caramel and wild berries. Good bitterness with added peppery hints. Excellent balance. Hints of ginger to the flavors. Very drinkable, creamy and medium bodied. Fresh..... and refreshing!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A classic wheat bitter, pale golden yellow in colour with strong wheat aromas. A hard wheat flavouring is all I detected with a bit of hop bitterness. It’s not my favourite clocktower beer but not the worst either.
