Pour at the Ontario Brewing Awards. Amber coloured pour. Lightly sweet aroma a touch of earthy hoppiness. Malty and sweet with a touch of light bitterness. Tastes nice and fresh but too sweet by half.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice amber with a nice froathy, slightly off white head that leaves behind foamy lacing. The Aroma is a little weak, a cardboard malty extract note is all I can really get. The flavour is a straight forward, simple caramel malt kind of profile, seems very English to me. Certainly nothing new and exciting going on here, but it’s solid, does what it should, nothing offensive about it. I could drink a sixer of these with a friend for sure.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
pours unclear golden orange, amber-ish, with a small white cap, some retention and lacing. nutty and fruity caramel, very fruity - small red and yellow fruits, grassy, peppery, hint of licorice and other belgian-esque spices - imparted by yeast and not added spices - beautiful spicy esters in fact. moderate carbonation, light body - nice texture, balanced grassy-earthy-spicy finish - very nice mouthfeel. solid bitter - bomber for myself. much enjoyed!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
An amber ale with a thin lacing mocha head. In aroma, a nice nutty caramel malt with light grassy hops, faint herbal odors, OK. In mouth, a nice nutty caramel malt with grassy hops, rye bread, not bad.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours maple syrup dark with a one finger cap that fades quickly. First few sips are a bit of a surprise -- is something wrong here? There’s something assertively vegetal happening here, almost like they brewed this with cabbage or something. Oh my. Disappointing.

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.
