Botltle shared with Tom10101, thanks! Pours amber. Light beer, kind of hoppy with a touch of lavender. Soapy texture. A bit watery. Ok beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Volo. The color is amber with a thin beige head. The taste is of citrus fruits with hops and malt that gives it it’s sweetnes. For me this is an average ale.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Intense amber body, almost wine like, medium creamy yellowish head. Aroma is a delight, bready sweet, hops, malt, caramel, hint of vanilla....is this a 4.7% abv?
Taste is very malty, with tons of hops, almost feels like an oak barrel aged beer, piney, oily mouth-feel, dry and refreshing. Excellent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Finally, an American-style ale I can be proud of. Copper colour, impressive head with nice lacing, a mild but long and dry finish. Clean, thick, feels refreshing in the back of the throat. Maybe the best pale ale in Ontario. Lawnmower beer? Hell, no. Plowman’s, bitches.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 mL bottle. Pours mahogany with a thin off white head, dies off quickly with a little lacing. Nose of black cherry, caramel, hops, chestnut and melting butter. A big beer for only 4.7%, full bodied and fairly sweet offset by roasted malt flavor and a hop bite. A little sticky on the palate with a lingering bitter finish. Liked this one a lot.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Pours a clear dark reddish brown, with a creamy beige head. Aroma is heavy with cereal notes, pine, faint cocoa, bread crust, and linseed. The taste is also heavy with cereal notes, slightly sweet, faint pine, mineral notes and a bitter finish with some hints of earth.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2007 1.9 L growler from the brewery - poured reddish copper hue with a THICK and rocky off-white head that lasts pretty much forever. Biscuity malt aroma and quite a bit of juicy Cascade-y hops. Bready too. Very bitter opening, which smoothes out in the middle with some sweet caramel and nutty malting, which once more gives way to a long, intense bitter finish. If you like bitterness in your beer (which I do), then you’ve found your ale. This may best Scotch Irish’s Corporal Punishment (at least as of late) for bitterness. Remarkable in flavour and body for just 4.7% abv. Excellent ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clear deep amber with small off white head that quickly fades. Nose is caramel and roasted malts with floral hops . Sweet toffee, vanilla and some banana with a light citrus bitterness in the finish. Slightly watery slick mouth with soft carbonation. Hops never really come through in the taste.

Draught @ Bar Volo: Pours copper in colour, little white head. Smells almost cheesy, weird. Tastes like red grapefruit and caramel malts, quite a bit of flavour to be had, most of it from hops. Ok.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Deep copper with thin white head. Complex aroma includes half-cooked bread dough, wood smoke, dark fruit, caramel, leather, green hops, vanilla, toffee. Light sour/heavy bitter, edibly thick and robust. Hearty, like a country meal. Meat and potatoes with some spice. Crisp, sharp bitter bite to the finish. Next to no carbonation. Shades of Yorkshire fields.
