2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This Bitter poured a deep orangey red colour with a nice, fluffy, off white head. To the nose there are scents of caramel, cereal and malt. First sip was kind of thin with watery texture and not a lot of flavor. Light flavours of roasted malts, caramel and hay most predominant. Finsh is malty with a mild roasty flavor. Pretty good but needs to have more balls.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - pours a clear shimmering red-amber with a sticky off white cap that laces well. Light carbonation. Aroma is demure but distinct- sweet amber malts over spicy hops and a hint of fruit. Creamy mouth feel malty-fruity character, medium-light body. Flavour has hints of caramel, succulent fruit tones, spicy hopping and a solid malt back bone -. goes to a clean lightly bitter finish. This is a good example of a craft session bitter - I could tilt a few of these in a sitting - mild but flavourful, drinkable in the max!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Single bomber from the LCBO and my first from the Niagara College Teaching Brewery. Pours a clean amber colour with a light beige head, almost creamy, decent retention and some good lace. Aromas of watery caramel with hints of nuts. Medium-bodied with a little fiz, kind of a Perrier mouthfeel finish. A little sweet taste with some very mild hops in the finish, but all watered-down. An average bitter but with something a bit off... everywhere.

Pours clear dark copper with a moderate off white top. Aroma is caramel and earthy malts with a small hop presence. Taste is smooth caramel malts with earth tones. Nice body and earthy hop bitterness in the end. Could be a regular for me.

650 mL bottle. Beautiful nut brown colour, with a small but sticky beige head. Nice malty aroma with nuts, toffee, some earthiness. Quite pleasant. Lots of flavour for a light beer. Itís a tad sweet, but still very drinkable. Solid body for the style.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bomber from LCBO, served cool in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear bright copper with a full tan head.
Aroma: Earthy, British caramel maltiness, bread crust, very slightly nutty, a bit floral, certainly British, nice depth for the ABV.
Palate: Medium body, soft, fairly full effervescence.
Flav.: Like the nose, plenty of quite British maltiness, earthy, stern, caramel and toffee that is dry and earthy, lightly floral, good flavour for a lower-alcohol offering; dry with mild bitterness and a reasonable dry toffee finish.
Certainly not a favourite style, but a competent beer.
