3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle provided by a potential supplier. Hazy amber pour with a wispy head. Light pine and citrus aroma on light grain. Spice meets pine in the flavor but its not particularly strong. Well balanced with the grainy malts. Medium mouth feel with a bit of a creamy finish that tappers its way to semi-dry. Easy drinking and OK.

Had a pint at the Hogtown Vegan. Almost pale ale seems apt. Amber colour with a slight bitterness and clean finish. Went well with the vegan burger I mowed down (too much meat this week, a vegan meal was on the menu). A nice fall/winter/spring beer.

Has a hoppy smell with some earthiness. Smells a little of caramel as well, though I can’t detect any sweetness in the taste.Actually promises more in the smell than the taste delivers, though the taste isn’t bad by any means. Hoppy and bitter. Bottle.

On tap @ C’est What Spring Fest.
Aroma is hoppy orange, orange wearing a small custard head. Flavour is a burst of orange with some nice malt. Medium bodied, very well balanced, resiny. Good example.

Draught. At C’Est What Spring Fest. Clear amber with a small creamy off-white head. Decent floral aroma against light cereal grain - moderately hoppy; clean. More bitterness in the flavour, fairly intense marigold pungency, dry, the malt is a touch sweeter than I expected. Average body, nicely carbonated, quite crisp, refreshing and dry, the linger lasts acceptably long - a pretty solid effort, would be a good pitchers on the patio brew.

Dark amber. active head. Starts off a bit rough aroma with grains ans solvent, which seems to dissipate as the glass a few minutes. Taste loads of grassy hop bitterness, which is a bit unbalanced at first, but tastes decent with my Bison Burger. The sweet malts and fruit seem to come through later.

Clear copper with pathetic white head that disappears like a balding man’s hairline. Faint but pleasant hoppy aroma. Bit harsh carbonation but well blended clear, crisp hop taste. Clear aftertaste too.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2010 On tap. Easy to drink, but a bit hoppy and floral with sweet malt. Very decent - glad I had it.

Bottle. Murky medium-brown with a vermillion infusion. Pleasant cherry aroma with distant strawberry and a healthy touch of malt. Palate begins with a nice gritty texture but gets a little thin towards the middle and finish. Good wood/bark bitterness is well balanced in the flavour profile of malt and berry fruit. Pretty good but the watery middle and finish leads to a just-slightly-better-than-average overall impression.
