2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I tried this beer on August 3, 2012 as part of a Granville Island/Creemore mixed 6 pack that was purchased at one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured a translucent cherry red colour with a very thin white head. The aroma is caramel, weak hops, and some metallic notes. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The metallic notes really come through in the flavour, although there is a bit or sour grains as well. Not a fan of Granville Island after the three beers I received.

2.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours deep copper with no head. Some carbonation. Almost no aroma to speak of. Refreshing taste with fruity and woody undertones. Very drinkable but not a lot of flavour. Does not linger on the palate. Not anything fantastic.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at The Beer Academy, June 20. Pours a deep copper-gold with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Mild aroma of fruit, a touch sour along with grain and caramel malt. Flavour of grain, apple juice, biscuity malt and very light hops. Average bodied. Quite mediocre indeed.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
What, are we now turning into Quebec? Another merely-competent, OK beer to file under ’why did they bother, and what does this add to our craft brew scene.’ Pale gold and white cap, aroma mostly biscuit malt and caramel, whiff of fresh grassy hops. Taste is sweet biscuit malt and medium body, a hint of fruit, some wort. Some hop on finish. Pleasant but dull, will never drink this beer again for its sheer lack of ambition.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, Granville/Creemore mix pack from lcbo. Medium orange/brown, small slick head, looks thin. Mild caramel malt aroma. Taste is pretty sweet, nice actually, but lacking in anything else (hops, body). Maybe a hop or two in finish, but it is very short. Drinkable, but not as advertised.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A pale ale that is lacking in hops. Not a bad malt taste but a bit too watery. Tastes more like a rousse/amber than a pale ale and is a bit too bland.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
June 9 2012. On tap @ Stokes by the Bay, Sarnia. Poured a clear amber with a thin white head. Aroma was slight biscuit and nothing else. Tastes of malt biscuit and very modest hop finish. Creamy mouthfeel and no aftertaste. Expected a little more flavour but when all offerings were coors I guess it is an impressive beer considering creemore owns the brewery. After 4 pints I'm not as critical.

355 ml can. Pours a clear copper color with medium head of big bubbles that dissipates quickly. Light cereal aroma. Light malt and cereal flavors with light hop finish. Good for quaffing by the pitcher.
