3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
And the last of the three Gan beers that I had at Pizzeria Libretto that I emailed the brewer to figure out their regular name. Thank you Bruce from Gananoque for actually answering a beer-geeks email.
Apparently, "Stagionale (Pizzeria Libretto listing for this beer) rotates but this week it is our Remarkable Session Ale" (guess their official name can be light or session. Depends how hipster you feel.) So be aware that this rotates, if it’s Stagionale Rye this is the right beer, if not Rye than maybe not. ’Nuff said.
Pours a very cloudy golden with a fluffy white head with lacing. Smells of yeast nose, bready notes and malt. Taste some up-front bitterness, breads and flat malts. Acerbic after taste, which is where the bigger rye flavour appears.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2013-09-13. Crisp dark yellow body with a small foamy white head. 3+ Aroma is odd, floral and lightly sweaty. Flavour is sort of creamy and buttery, soft grassy bitterness throughout. Average plus bodied palate, effervescent carbonation. Not awful but a bit odd all around. On tap at C’est What Festival of Small Breweries, Toronto

On tap at C’est What Summer Festival of Craft Breweries. Pours a clear golden orange with thin white head. Aroma is biscuity grains and light fruitiness. Flavour is chewy biscuit with some generic, slightly sweet fruitiness. Lighter bodied. Not bad, but nothing special.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at cest what. Pours a light brown, aroma was light and flavour was to. It didn’t taste like too much as I assume this is what they were going for. It was quite light
