Bottle thanks to Matt7215. Pours a slight brownish amber with medium off-white head. Aroma of hops, caramel, malt, and slight chocolate. Flavor similar with the addition of wheat, spice, and a slight sweetness. Very dry on the palate. Good flavor, bad finish.

Bottle. Malt, grassy hops aroma. Sour hop taste. A bit acidic but passable. Never would’ve guessed this was an amber ale from what I was tasting... may need to try this one again.

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.

Bottle. Attractive deep scarlet appearance. Highly invigorating aromas of cherry, creamy malt and melon. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel, and a pleasant fruity flavour that leads to a chalky bitter finish. An awesome British-style draft ale captured in a 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.

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.

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!

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.
