2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
June 26, 2013 - on draught at WVRST. Amber pour average off-white head. Grainy and grassy aroma, definitely a bit boozy - taste follows, plenty of grain and alcohol - how is this not a malt liquor? - a little OTT. Thin body, astrinent and hot, average carbonation, a little sweet and grassy in the boozy finish. Did I mention this is boozy? Roadhouse!!!

Au nez on sent l'alcool, le grain torréfié et un soupçon de fumée caramélisé. Ça me rappelle la 90minutes de Dogfish. On goûte des allures de pommes confites. La finale enveloppe la bouche pour des heures! Délicieuse biere

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
limited release from this Barrie Ont. Craft Brewer. This, at first blush, appears to be an amped up imperialized version of a marzen amber lager. A closer inspection reveals that this is another of Peter Chodo’s concept beers utilizing an esoteric hop variety against a supporting blend of specialty malts in a common style, yielding uncommon results. In Green Man we see the use of some unique New Zealand hop varieties normally used in ales to spice up this big malty lager – and these abstract elements just connect well in this beer. Big, malty, hoppy, modest complexity with subtle unexpected tastes for a lager - like vanilla, caramel, nuts, lemon grass. Medium bodied and satisfying, this is a big lager with all sorts of pleasant unconventional surprises.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the brewery. Pours a hazy deep amber with a small off white head that leaves nice lace. Nose is bread and toffee with grain and some grass. Quite sweet caramel and honey start with a a modest hoppy resinous bitterness following. Full creamy mouth with average carbonation and a boozy finish.

On tap at the Only Cafe during the FM tap take over. Pale copper with white creamy head. Grainy, sweet, malt, moderate body and carbonation, some sugary sweetness then goes back to dry and hoppy on the finish - sorta all over the place.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - 750ml. Amber body with a thin white foamy head. Fresh hoppy aroma with malty and grapefruit hints. Alcohol is well hidden. Its sharp hoppy taste carries woody and citrusy notes. Ends with a long, strong bitter finish. Well done.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 mL bottle at the brewery for Moose’s birthday, served in a tasting glass. Pours clear caramel with small ring if white foam. The nose has big malty notes with caramel and honey with a touch of herbal hops. The flavour is moderately sweet up front but it quickly becomes bitter with resinous hoppy notes. It closes out with a moderate bitter finish. On the palate it is medium in body with a syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a fairly simple imperial lager with a prominent bittering hop bill. 2013-11-23
