2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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.

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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
