3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Chocolate / hop nose. Clear, dark amber body with thin, carbonated head, no appreciable retention. Flavour is sharp and hoppy from start to finish with bitter dark chocolate aftertaste. I found the mouthfeel rather watery. In all, it’s a very good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A rich carmel color similar to pale ales but a bit more cloudy. The notes of the hops jump forth from the glass and immediately hit the whole tongue. The bitter units are rich but well blended into the overall flavor of the beer. If you like an IPA with a bit more, then try this.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cloudy dark amber. Thick bone-colored head.
Smells quite strongly of honey and molasses. And that’s all.
Soft and pungent. Long bitter finish.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
355 mL Bottle. Deep amber body with an off-white foamy-bubbly head that settles to a long lasting film that laces the glass. Pine-like and floral aroma with notes of autumn leaves, grapefruit, sweet malt, crystal malt, and toffee. Sweet malt and crystal malt are there in the flavor and if an autumn breeze had any taste, this beer has it along with an innuendo of black pepper. Hops express in the aftertaste without being too overpowering. Grapefruit lingers a bit in the finish. This could be Canada’s very own "Oktoberfest" beer. Perfect for an Indian Summer barbecue.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Corner Grill for Ontario Craft Beer Week. Pours a clear amber with a moderate, creamy, off-white head. Aromas are fairly subtle, maybe a little grainy malt and a little floral hops. Taste is very much malt up front with dry, bitter, and biscuity hops asserting themselves on the finish. Creamy mouthfeel, moderate carbonation and a medium astringent finish. A decent but I exciting brew.

Amber color, plenty of hops on the nose. More tame than expected but a great beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Johnny Farinas. Pours a very dark amber with a moderate white head leaving moderate lacing.
On the nose citrus hops with just a hint of tea.
Tastes of citrus with some light maltiness. More tea and a mild bitterness on the follow through.
An offbeat quality brew.

Flaska. Härliga toner av fotbira o lagård. Smaken något tunn med en bra balanserad efterbeska. En hyfsad pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy transparent brown-orange, with head that dissipates instantly. Smells very hoppy. Very very hoppy, but not unpleasant. Hints of bananas and cloves, some vanilla. Palate is medium bodied. Slightly watery, but very smooth. Taste is simple but good. Quite sweet, slightly bitter, no nasty aftertaste. One of the few Ontario beers I’ve tried and not hated :)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer poured a clear straw colour, with a minimal head. The aroma was of light malts, citrus, nuts and grains. the tasting notes include more light malts, orange peel, mango, and a slightly hoppy finish. Good overall, but I am not a fan of the style.
