Orcacreek (1) - - MAY 19, 2013 does not count
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.

Lagerboy (1172) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2011
1L pot-stopper, clear reddish brown, decent head and lacing. This one is all sweet roasty malts, some caramel and chocolate, and a lightly hopped finish. Very nice.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 13, 2011
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.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 29, 2011
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.

Crit (3306) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2011
Hazy light brown,lasting beige head.Earthy malt profile, sweet mid, faint dirty line type taste. Light bitter hop finish. Somewhat similar to Race Rocks. Not much here !!

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 11, 2011
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.
