4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2013 Wish I could find more of this. Howe Sound does these one batch wonders, then abandons us without explanation. Satisfying citrus energy, cherry-chocolate, fruity-malt, crisp with a whiff of distant cedar smoke. The head was a bit foamier than I like, but otherwise a great summer beer. A dollar $1 from each bottle goes to fisheries recovery programs with Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nutty and caramel malt character with floral hops and plenty of fruity esters in the aroma. Clear amber-brown body is topped by a low off-white head that recedes to a lasting cover with some lacing. Strong caramel malt base supports a surprisingly prominent bitterness. Floral and nutty notes along with fruity esters in the lingering aftertaste. Medium-light body has moderate carbonation that suits the style well. Highly successful for an often boring style. I really enjoyed this pint! Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Hazy dark amber color; creamy head. Mild malt and caramel aroma, a bit spicy. Strong caramel flavor, quite dry, although the mouthfeel is smooth; light touch of roasted nuts; no particular flavor depth; instead, like the Hemp and Honey tasted side to side, the final bitterness is disturbingly harsh.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle purchased as the brewery on 03/11/2011. Colour: Dark red and brown, depending on how you look at it both can be dominant. Nose: Lots of nuts and cereals. Accompanied also by bark, coffee and barley. Taste: Medium sweet, light our, light-medium bitter. A colourful collection of nuts, malt, barley, cocao, coffee and not to be forgotten - a woody note. I like the complexity.
