2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Way too much head. I would continue my rate but I can’t as I have to wait for the head to fade....waiting... okay poured most of the can in now. Clear amber/brown pour. Head is very clingy and is leaving lots of lacing. Very pleasant smell, flowery. Very easy to drink. Tastes I’m not used to that are hard to place. There’s a big spike of flavour right in the middle. Sweet and a bit grassy. Very little spice. Interesting easy to drink beer. Rather good for a light beer. Still can’t place those tastes though. I blame the Vegetarian wedding I was at earlier today.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
473ml can in a lager glass. Pours dark amber with a white head that has an orange tinge and does not last long. Little aroma. Sweet carmel and hoppy but kind of flat tasting.

473ml can. The poorest of the hockley examples, most intrusive marmite english yeast character.

473 mL can. Pours clear amber with a thick cap of white head. Nose is caramel toffee, nuts and mild floral, herbal hops. Biscuity sweetness up front with a little bitterness on the back end. Thin, light bodied with average carbonation. No flaws, just a little dull.

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.

can. Amber colour and thin fizzy head. Sweet caramel malt, some grain/grassy hops. Light, not really much going on here but its drinkable enough.

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.

2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
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.

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.
