3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Faint toffee aroma that is killed by the nitrogen service. Ruddy orange with a nitrogen, guinnessy white head. Bitter flavour up front followed by an excellent toffee chased by the bitterness that evens out to a clean finish with a little nutty peach in there somehow. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, lasting bitterness.

Draught. Creamy uncomplicated. Perfect maltiness with a great faom. Carbonation is mute. The best example of a canadian cream ale I have come across. Grossly underrated.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
[on tap at the brewpub] Clear golden/orange color, huge creamy head that lasted. Well balanced hop and malt flavors with a creamy smooth finish. Very good beer, very drinkable, a prime example of a Cream Ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange with a small lasting creamy off-white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is bready with some grain, hops and faint fruit. This being a Cream Ale, one of my most hated styles, the flavour surprised me with how good it was: it’s fruity, malty and has a good amount of hops -- unlike most beers of this style, it’s quite flavourful. Medium bodied. Definitely one of the best Cream Ales I’ve had.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[tap @ the brewpub] Beautiful clear yellow color, topped with a dense, creamy head. Flavors are nice, toasted malts. Finishes surprisingly bitter. Subtle carbonation. I could easily make a huge session out of this one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown, orange hues, thick creamy white head. Decent fruity aroma. Decent fruity taste - lots of malt - as good as this style can get I would think. Earthy fruity hops as well. Not bad, it still isn’t a pint I would reach for again and again, but this has tons more flavour than a Caffrey’s or Kilkenny, two of my intro beers.
