3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy deep golden with a small white top. Aroma is earthy hop with a small spicy characteristic. Taste is a not bad earthy pine hop flavouring with a low bitterness.

Howler shared with northropfrye. I liked this one. I can taste the hops but they’re not so pronounced, so it’s a guzzler beer. It’s sessionable, I should say. Refreshing.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light slightly orange/yellow body, white head, some lacing. Tropical fruit and resin aroma, but faint. Taste is sweet malts, dry watery finish. This would be watery even for a Bitter or something. I’d hardly call this an APA. It’s on the level of the Alexander Keith’s hop series. Some flavour, but not that great.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Slightly less crappy than the IPA, which was liquid hopped cardboard. Really basic and really boring. Seemed old as well...

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
473 mL can. Pours copper with a thick white head. Nose is hop spice and citrus peels, some mild biscuity malt. Taste is bland, mildly sweet with mild bitterness, hung on a thin, watery frame with little to no mouth feel. Too bad, based off the pour and the nose I thought this would be decent at least. Moderate carbonation and weak body.

From my friend Melissa. Golden, clear with white foam. Mild orange malt in the aroma. Malt, orange, with mild sweet hay bitterness. A bit watery.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale straw colored pour, big frothy head, watery lacing. Aroma of light pine hops, with tinges of citrus. The malts smell cheap, and honestly smell like a cheap brew at home kit. body is a tad watery, and the mouthfeel is a little soft.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
473 ml can. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Aroma is grapefruit, herb, caramel. Flavor is cereals, dry, some grapefruit and caramel. Finish is a bit of grass and grapefruit. Rather dry. Medium body, somewhat sticky, average carbonation. Felt quite generic.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malty aroma with notes of hops and citrus. Clear straw colour. Bitter front with caramel flavour and slightly boozy finish. Light-medium body with high carbonation. Not bad, and pleasant to sip.

Couleur ambré, avec un col blanc peu résistant. Des saveurs simples de céréales,caramel et agrumes. Rien d’extraordinaire.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
473ml can from the LCBO. Transparent amber straw body with thick creamy off-white head. Aromas of pine, fresh-cut grass, citrusy aromas and lime zest. Percieved bitterness is lower than expected based on the ever-present hop aromas. Very sessionable and light to medium bodied.
