3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2015 On tap at Wvrst. Good balanced ale with mild hops and smooth but slight bitterness.
Jan 26 2015 - second rating. I forgot I tried this before and resisted buying it because it was an English Ale. Probably was good but wouldn’t be my first choice of style - I would expect that bready, caramel taste from that style. The aroma and taste are both pleasantly surprising from the American hops here. Glad I bought it again

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Great Lakes Pompous Ass English Ale 4.2%
This was a random find at an LCBO in Ottawa. Amber orange color with beige head.
The aroma is malty wafers, orange and vanilla. Medium to full bodied with a semi-dry mouthfeel. The taste is peaches, cream, orange, malt, wafers. A good solid English beer they surpasses the label.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A hazy copper body with a scarce light brown head. Hoppy nose with notes of herbs, earth and caramel. Taste is quite dry with a mildly bitter finish. Lively carbonation and somewhat thin palate. Feels more american than english to me but it is quite nice for such a light beer.

Nitro at BarHop. Murky brown with thick nitro beige head. Lots of tea, some wood, sugar and roasted grains, faint orange. Light sweet and bitter. Light bodied with low carbonation. Better than a lot of actual English ones while still being true to the style. Nice.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can, YYZ. Light brown with a thin head. Has a nice earthy, toasty brown ale character, good english hops, touch of bitterness. Body is thin , though, which undermines it. More residual sugars and they’d have something.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
473 mL Can. Copper body with a smooth foamy white head, thin but tenacious and "staying all the way" clinging all over the glass. Aroma of sweet malts, some crystal malt, pungent resiny hops, an earthy note. Nice full flavor of sweet malts, an innuendo of crystal malt, nice round bitter aftertaste imparting a thirst-quenching finish. So delicious the fellow on the label turns up his nose at all else.
