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.

Damn good, damn good. Capped by an off-white head, this dark gold guzzle smells of hay, honey and yeasty bread. It tastes a little sweet with caramel, nuts and quite unexpectedly, but very welcomed, plum. A low carbonated brew with a smooth body shared with the finest of quaffing companions.

I smelt this smell b4. One small finger of bubbly head. Red to light veary little carbination. Amber in front o me with lots of carbination. Smell is a hoppy beer kinda like a west coast ipa smell. Taste starts of a toffyish or caramelish maltyness but not alot of taste to the malt because the hops dominat this beer and take over quickly. Earthyness taste stays on tounge long and its a earthy light citrus hop taste. Later the cramel or tofee malt show a bit again. Hop heads would really be into this one perhaps. More for the hop head then the malt lover. Not great but not horrid. Cheer’s!

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.

Poured a rusted straw colour with a fast disappearing head. Had a interesting aroma of citrus, bread, and grapes. Taste was even more interesting with sweet plum, nuts, and biscuits. Had a light smooth body with low carbonation and a mild bitterness near the end.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 mL Bottle. Amber body with a thin foamy off-white head that settles to a thin but tenacious layer leaving plenty of stringy and almost spider web-like lace. Rich malty aroma, crystal malt standing strong with it’s intense malt-syrupy aspect; hints of pear and clover, an innuendo of honey, and resiny hops that "play peek-a-boo". The flavor is a solid one of sweet malts that would be very much at home in an English pub -and I like that style. There is a sweetness that is very clover honey-like and that I find very likeable -and I don’t normally like sweet beers. A mildly grassy hop bitter takes over in the aftertaste and finish. A bonus point for what I consider to be a great brew.

500 ml bottle. Pours a dark amber with a large off-white head. Aromas are bread, yeast, caramel, and some licorice. Taste is a nice crisp malt with hints of cereal and caramel. Though there is a touch of sweetness it is well balanced against a light to medium bitter hop profile. Light bodied, low carbonation, and a medium length bitter finish. Reasonably pleasant.

Bottle from the brewery store. Aroma is malt and orange peel. Taste is of grapefruit and honey, with some body. Subtle, grapefruity bitter finish. This was nice, a very IPA-tinged amber.
