A hazed orange amber ale with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, sweet treacle caramel with light iron notes. In mouth, a sweet roasted malt, lightly nutty, faint herbal hops, light coffee, medium bodied. Not bad. Bottle from LCBO, BB 31-08-11.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Quite enjoying this one at the moment, though mind you it isn’t the most amazing brew in any particular aspect. A nice touch of bitterness. 500ml bottle in Toronto On second thought, I can actually detect the oak - tastes like a touch of whiskey almost

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled, 500ml from Waitrose, Harrogate, N.Yorks. Copper with reddish hint and cream head. Fruity, prunish, plums with a lingering alcohol note, some wet cardboard, then the roasted malt makes a showing. Borderline stuff.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very floral aroma with notes of coriander, caramel, butterscotch and toffee. Clear deep golden coloured body is topped by a low but lasting white head that leaves some lace on the sides of the glass. Flavour offers everything the aroma suggests with some biscuity notes but floral sweetness comes across a bit too strong. Medium body with fair to moderate carbonation that doesn’t really enliven the flavours. Tulip glass. Just above fridge temperature. Bottle purchased at the BCLS in Jul-2011.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Copper pour with an off white head that leaves little lace. Stewed prunes is all I can pick out of the very bland nose. Sort of sweet and fruity on the palate. Light easy going palate with no real bitterness.

From a 500ml bottle. Poured rudy red in colour. Smell of sweet biscuit malts, light hoppiness in aroma too. Sweet malt, citrus hop and fruity taste. Very drinkable, nice beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
I tried this beer on July 23, 2011 after purchasing from the Queen’s Quay LCBO outlet in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent red colour, not quite ruby, with a thin white cap. The aroma was skunk, some nuttiness, and metallic tones. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is gross. Some sweetness up front, and a lot of graininess and acidity in back.
