3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Single bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clean amber colour, deeper than average with a frothy warm cap, great retention and thick-creamy lacing. Hoppy nose with the grass, over cereal grains, butterscotch and orange notes. The taste is similar with the sweetness of caramel and the decent bitterness from the hop. A grainy background. Seems like an alright British-style session brew, but their seems to be these hints of adjuncts (plastic, sourness) messing things up.

Had high hopes for this beer. Unfortunetely, they were not answered. It was way too hoppy and herby. It head a weak head, and terrible earthy taste. Once i let it breathe a little bit, it was somewhat better but still not great at all.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clear deep orange with a small off white head that clings to the glass. Nose is light citrus and bread. Quite sweet to start with an orange/tangerine tang and a quite modest bitterness at the back end. Flavour is quite subdued and delicate. Medium slick mouthfeel with lively carbonation.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from LCBO. Pours clear orange with a foamy off-white head. Toasty, fruity, and slightly acidic aroma. Taste is sour and bready, and a little yoghurty; I do wonder if it’s gone off. Light bitter finish. Smooth body.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Rusty orange in colour with a small brown head. Brown sugar joins earthy and herbal hops in the nose. No doubting the style of this one. The flavour is a little sweet up front, but smooths out into a slightly bitter finish. London Pride-ish. Not an ESB, certainly. Well constructed and enjoyable session ale.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask au Volo. Une robe ambrée presque brune. Une absence de tête mousseuse. Des arômes qui sont dominés par des céréales maltées aux sèches consonnances. Des saveurs maltées avec une apparition innatendue de houblons qui proposent beaucoup d’incertitude. Une bouche complètement éteinte. Des bulles qui sont mortes depuis belle lurette. Une texture qui en souffre. En finale, des notes amères qui tentent une construction.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty good hoppy bitter, an appropriately smooth carbonation level. Was told this was Tommy something or other - alternate name? At Ceili Cottage on tap.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Grassy hop and barley aroma. More grassiness, hops, and some veggies in the taste and finish. Some sweetness, mild bitterness. Pretty straightforward hoppy ale, not bad at all.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours nice orange-amber with small off white head. Sweet apricot aroma, some caramel and some light bread and grain notes. Zesty, light-medium mouthfeel, medium-high carbonation. Initially sweet, following through with a nice residual bitterness and hop flavour; a sweet, yet lingering bitter finish with a touch of bready yeast character to ponder.

341 ml bottle from Beer Store. Pours a clear amber with small white cap. Caramel and fruity malt in nose with light floral and citric hops. Flavour is caramel, fruit, floral, slight nuttiness and a bit of tea with moderate citric hop presence in finish. Medium body. Quite English and quite good.
