3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can : Clear reddish copper ale with a decent 3 finger cap. Malty-caramel dominates aroma with some fruitiness and grassy hop tones in the background. Sturdy mouth feel, good malt backbone. Tate profile has the big chewy bite of cara-malts in front, almost gets sweet but there is sufficient hopping to balance. Finish lingers and gets more bitter with a clean hoppy bite at then end.
All in all a very decent and servicable amber - and very drinkable. I’ll buy more.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
473 ml can from the LCBO.
Appearance: Pours a
clear amber with just a finger of white head.
Malt, bit of hops.
Fairly smooth with average carbonation.
Overall: An okay Amber but not much going on here. The aromas and flavours don’t stand out and it just seems lacking. I much prefer the Hockley Dark.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from LCBO. Clear amber with white head. Nose is mild hops (citrus, peppery) with grainy malt. Light body. Balanced hops and sweet grainy malt come through on the taste. Rather tasty for what it is.

Not my taste. Looks good, and smells okay, but watery and no particular thing to mention. There is a a bit of sourness in the mouth. Hard to describe. Not for the second time.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Kind of sweet with a honey-like appearance, nose, and palate. Doesn’t quite get to caramel on the malts but there is the beginning of something sweet on the tongue. A bit of toffee. No hop presence and no bitterness to speak of. Not a particularly balanced beer. Completely forgettable. Will never purchase again, as this is an "also ran" in the crowded craft beer market.

Can. Amber pour with a minimal white head. aroma was a tad sweet, honey, biscuit. Taste was similar, touch of caramel and toasty malt. Better than their lager, fairly enjoyable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A lot of honey and graham cracker on the nose of this beer. This translates into the flavour as well, but the taste is too far on the sweet side with out any bitterness to balance it. Honey brown colour and a rather smooth texture. Overall it’s too sweet to really be enjoyable.
