3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber body, kind of looks like an IPA, the head doesn’t last long, though. Sweet grainy aroma, peanuts. Taste is sweet but with a nice balance of hops, too. Not a lot of carbonation, but still a fairly assertive palate. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
473ml can. Pours a burnt caramel with an off-white head. Aroma is caramel, tropical fruit, and light floral notes. The taste is slightly watery with caramel, mineral notes, decent...UNTIL...the cheap domestic beer finish, and the awful bitter taste that reminds me far too much of penicillin. Get rid of that finish, and this is a solid session beer. As is, blech.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can, LCBO 3 pack. Light amber pour, small white head. Aroma is sweet and a little fruity. Taste - sweet malt with a bit of a metallic hint to it. Body is quite watery. Some light hops in there as well. Really tastes like a watered down Hockley Dark. Did not care for this one.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This one has a decent appearance with good head and an apricot flavoured body, aroma of sweet corn - close to sickly but they manage to pull it back just in time. The flavour is apricot with notes of caramel. What’s supposed to be an amber beer tastes a whole lot like a peach witbier. It’s a total miss, but still drinkable.
