Very nice indeed. This is a brewery that is consistently producing good beer. Deep brown with a moderate head. A sweet aroma - can detect some caramel and just a hint of hops which come to the forefront upon first sip. Not overpowering, just a mild English-ale level bitterness that is then alleviated by a little bit of malty sweetness. The bitterness comes back and lingers for a while. Really good stuff.

Pours an amber brown with a thick almond top and great lacing. Aroma is lots of malts a little sulphur and earthy hops. Taste is a great blend of malt and light hop and some light cereal. Not bad.

500ml bottle from LCBO. Tastes like bad home brew. Can only hope it was a bad bottle,

bottle. Pours hazy ruby-orange. Aroma of toasted malts, woodiness. Some sweet toffee in the taste, nicely balanced with a light bitter kick. Pretty good.

Strangebrewer (846) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2011
bottle. Poured hazy orange with a creamy tan head. Fresh herbal hoppy aroma. Average carbonation, sticky palate. Grapefruit, green tea, caramel malt, hint of pepper. A bit of a metallic finish kinda like a dry red wine. Quaffable.

Light aroma of mild caramel roast, little cherry jam there too. Oxidized malt up front, sours a bit, finishes complimentary, reminds me of a bruin.

DiarmaidBHK (3386) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Bottle from LCBO. Pours brown with a thin khaki head. Slight slight maltiness on the nose. I’m having trouble describing the taste except to say it tastes off. I don’t get any malt and it tastes like they used poison ivy instead of hops. Metallic aftertaste. Definite drainpour.

toffsbury (114) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2011
A bit cloudy.. Sweet candy aroma, not as bitter as I expected. A nice, hoppy beer, with a bitter aftertaste. Smooth, some creaminess in the palate. A medium body. delicious.
