3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle. Pours an almost clear, pale orange amber with a short lasting white head. Taste is malty, light caramel. Light earthy, herbal, piney hoppiness. Too subtle for my liking...Light to medium bodied. Alright...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Faint hoppy aroma. Cereals, malts and citrus flavors with strong, lasting bitter aftertaste. Pours a hazy orange amber with small receding head. Cask conditionned? Feels like my palate’s been attacked by evil underworld worker trolls. Despite that, good stuff man... Good stuff.

Draught at C’est What, Toronto
Hazy amber color, small head. Simple Ale, tasty, with some malt and cereals, but also lightly rancid; correct bitterness, with mild hop resins in the final.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rusty reddish hazy pour with a nice clingy white head. Draft at Gigs in London. Somewhat weak scent of citrus and fresh cut grass. Wet and refreshing. A bust of flavours at first that slowly mellows to almost nothing in the finish. It has just a touch of that pale ale bite right in the middle. Very subtle despite the name. Best beer I’ve had so far tonight.

Bought from Grand River Brewery retail store. Poured from 500 ml bottle. Poured medium gold, slight copper haze with small frothy head. Citrus-like hops aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, with medium to heavy bitterness. Frothy head lasted the entire glass, with decent lacing.

500mL bottle to wine glass
Aroma of hay and caramel malts. Clear reddish amber with almost no head. Burnt malts with a nice piney bitterness. Unfortunately this brew is a bit watery and thin or it would have been much better.
