3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bière cuivrée à la mousse rare, au nez sucré de raisins et de malts caramel ; assez mince, et limpide. La bouche est sucrée dans les mêmes tons, avec un effet de boisé qui persiste longtemps, avec des noisettes en finale. Un genre de rousse qui a l’avantage de son originalité et du certain tranchant de ses houblons, mais qui lasse assez vite avec ses notes parfois bizarres. Correcte, fort acceptable même, mais loin d’un grand cru.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle bought at Champanes,
this ale poured a red, orange, peach color into the glass and had a little haze, the pour gave a nice faint off-white cover that was lasting and left nice spots of lacing on the glass,
the nose had toasted malt, faint fruit that was pear like, a little citrus hops, malt sweetness with a hint of caramel,
the flavors were similar to the aroma, the finish had a light hop bitterness,
the mouth feel was light and creamy with average carbonation,
this beer had a nice flavor and nose of toasted malt, light hops and malt sweetness, a nice drink.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Clear amber colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Slighty grainy aroma, bitter hoppy overtones, inexplicable fruitiness. Taste is moderately bitter hoppy, fruity, a mixture of red berries and yellow stone fruit, nut paring dryness. Not concrete, somehow simply hoppy and malty. New metaphors required.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear dark brown with minimal white head that quickly dissipates. I love the colour on this one. I get aromas of caramel, yeast and bread but they are pretty mild. The flavours are malt, hops, biscuit and a hint of toffee. This one is an okay amber but I can’t say much more than that. There just isn’t a lot of flavour and it seems rather watery.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle. Clear amber with a white head. Aroma is very malty with caramel, roast and a hint of nuts & cereal but there is a bit of floral hops as well. On the palate it is medium bodied, fairly roasty bitter but smooth and a tad watery for me. Meh, wouldn’t buy this one again.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours sunburst brown with a one finger mushy cap. Taste is interesting for an amber ale: a broil of malts & hops that may not be as deep as hoped for but that is interesting. Seems almost stuck in the border blur of styles --maybe this a really good bitter? Another salt of the earth offering from these guys.

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