Draft. Pours amber with a almost non existent white head. Mild sweet malt aroma. Taste is mostly sweet malt, not exactly what i was expecting from description but decent.

Metalchopz (2129) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 6, 2014
Bomber from the LCBO, written 6% ABV. on front label. Pours a hazy amber colour with a frothy-bubbly light-beige head, good retention and thick creamy-patchy lacing. Nice light aromas chocolate malts, sharp bitter grassy hops, citrus sourness and vanilla to calm down everything. Medium-light body with a little dry finish. Apple flavours with the caramel and chocolate malts. Hints of roasted malts with coffee, nutty yeast and mild hops to balance things. Goes down smoothly and thankful the sourness went away (as I thought it was infected).

Freaky_tiki (398) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
Pour out of LCBO bomber is reddish brown with zero head. This right out of the granite play book: a soft brew, minimal hops, gentle malting, a watery finish. And yet tasty & satisfying.

yrstruly (332) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2013
Pours hazy brown with a diminishing white head and lots of carbonation. Aroma is caramel, bread crust, light fruity esters. Taste is light, caramel malt sweetness up front, more caramel and light bitterness in the finish. The carbonation is a bit high, making this feel lighter bodied than it should be.

Ferris (2035) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2013
Draft - Caramel and toasted malts. As I drink a few of these beers, I notice a distinct yeast quality which may be their house yeast. Clear amber with a rich yellowish head. Toasted malts and some grains with a medium bitterness. Typical English style beer, although not as sweet as I would expect.

Atheist_Peace (885) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 9, 2013
On tap at the Henry House. A clear, dark reddish sort of pour with fairly minimal head. Nose of slightly roasty malt and apples. Sweeter on the palate than I would prefer with a woody, fruity malty flavour profile. Very middling stuff.

zimbo (483) - SCOTLAND - DEC 2, 2012
Low carbonation and an orangy amber glow can’t disguise how once this hits your lips its deficient structurally. it may be pure and soft but to be so gentle for a beer which is so named is to stretch the point a bit.

Bendrixian (990) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2012
On tap at Henry House. Clear brew having light amber colour. Reduced aroma but has a slight sweet caramel note. Medium bodied,fruity apple quality and a slight hoppy finish. light but not terrible.

herrbrown1974 (424) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2012
On cask. Very cloudy dark brown, spongy tan head. Aroma is sweet roasted malt, a little toffee and ripe red fruit. Light body, slightly sweet and bready maltiness throughout. Finish is dry and slightly sour. Nice.
