FROTHINGSLOSH (6738) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2015
Sampled on draft at the College this beer poured a dark golden color with a huge creamy orange-white head that lingered and left great lacing. The aroma was malty, sweetish and bready. The flavor was sweetish and very bready with a touch of honey, yeast and a hint of caramel. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

6er from the LCBO. ligth amber pour, small white head. nose is all cereal, breads, and light toasted malts, pretty basic. light mouth feel, solid carb. No hops to speak of, unoffensive light bitter finish. another beer that would be an alternative for someone moving into craft beer.

Spab (3390) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2012
355 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clearish golden colour with smallish white cap. Aroma is mild grains and grass. Flavour has light honeyed grains, mild caramel and gentle grassiness. A little boring but not unpleasant.

From bottle. Not bad i guess. Clear that emphasis is on beer making process and not making an innovative product. Good for what it is.

Smell I reconize. 1 finger head,lots of small carbination. Golden but to light red. Taste is water,mabye citrus,caremal, and a veary mild bitterness that dont last. Smooth and easy drinking. The label on the bottles is part of that glass so that kicks ass. Nothing amazing here but easy drinking and nice.

HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2012
July 8, 2011 - with blankboy, JoeMcPhee, jerc and mabel. 341ml bottle c/o JoeMcPhee. Bubbly amber-gold, clear, with a smallish lasting frothy off-white head. Ew - ugly aroma, butter and burnt toast (no, nobody was cooking nearby). Taste is better, less butter, some grassy bitterness, light fresh grain - light, a bit floral. Fairly thick and chewy, all things being equal, decent carbonation, and at least its aftertaste isn’t as harsh as the lager we tried earlier - but overall not very nice.

Light copper. Sweetish, grainy and a bit toasty. Balanced toastiness and a hint of sweetness.

solidfunk (7638) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Smells like a little honey and malt, some cereal. Amber mahogany colour. Very little leave, a little tang is the only taste. It isn’t foul and there’s nothing overtly wrong with it. A good session campus beer, as the name goes. If they replaced all the molson taps at campus bars with this stuff, Toronto might get smart enough not to elect Rob Ford as mayor again. Bottle at Saving Gigi on Bloor and Ossington.
