Hoser (370) - Cowtown, Alberta, - OCT 12, 2010
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2014 Would love to have this on tap some day, had out of a fresh growler, it tasted just a touch oxidised. These MJ beers are getting harder and harder to find. Only 138 of MJ’s Best Beers in the World to have. Finally had this on tap rerated

FROTHINGSLOSH (5515) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2015 Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a dark caramel color with a small soapy white head that left good lacing. The aroma was tart, bitter, fruity and had touches of honey and toffee. The flavor was tart, bitter, sour caramel, vague fruits and citrus. Medium length finish. Medium body but a bit flat. Meh.

Pours dark brown with a small diminishing white head. Sweet aroma of light hops and caramel malt. Flavour starts off sweet and ends lightly bitter.

Peculiar (1) - Shipley, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUL 18, 2014 does not count
Pours clear brown with minimal head. Malt aroma, slightly sweet taste. When poured on tap at the Henry House it is served just slightly chilled - the perfect temperature for this beer. It is one of the most gulpable beers I have had. Two tips of the pint glass is all it takes before round two.

TheJester (2165) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2014
650 mL bottle. Amber brown, but virtually no head. The aroma is mild, with sweet brown sugar and bruised apple. The flavour is fruity-spicy up front, then there are some dark malt notes in the finish. Slight bitterness. body is on the thin side. Not great, unfortunately.

plaugher (263) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2014
Pint on tap at the Henry House. Used to be my old stand-by when Granite had their Barrington Street location; oh how I’ve missed you so. Pours a deep reddish-brown with a sparse head. Aroma and flavours of caramel and dried fruits. Sweet and dry with a warming finish. Better served on a snowy January night rather than during a warmish spring evening, though.

RhetoricalAns (581) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2014
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 (2605) - 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).
