Tranquillity (1877) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2016
Cask. Hazy yellow, big bubbles in the white head. The aroma is quite weak, but it could be because of the cold. It has a sweet malt. The taste is stringing an very British.

Oakes (15806) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 27, 2015
Slight haze, has a mix of pine & grapefruit in the nose. Has a rich bitter hop character, bit of citra but also a bit of butter. Lean, dry finish is really appetizing. The diacetyl lends it a bit of Britishness in an otherwise very American beer. But it would be better w/o the diacetyl.

This beer was enjoyed amongst many others during the 2nd bi- annual Junction Brewery & Bar Stumble. As for the brew, itís really not much of anything, a VERY middle of the road pale ale that is VERY malt forward & VERY hops on mute. And thatís just the thing with these guys. Try their beers over & over again & its really is a malt shop. I wonít let it bias my ratings & I respect the consistency of their brewing style (all malts, all the time) but ... Iím curious to see if they ever round that corner of heavy muddy malts meets low-fi hops.

Gethinbeer (2452) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2014
Clear golden pour with a lively carbonation. Large frothy white head. Metallic malt aroma. Crisp flavour with a citrus malt lager beer feel. Bitter finish if not a little odd.

Lubiere (12970) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2014
Cask : A lightly hazed blonde ale with a thin creamy white head. In aroma, nice biscuit malt with pungent piney floral hops, light cheesey notes, interesting. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with grassy floral hops, grapefruit pulp, astringent notes, a bit off. On tap at brewery.

[5754-20130830] Cask. Honey floral pear fruit aroma. Slightly hazy, golden orange body with no lasting head. Bitter floral grains flavour has a bit of an underlying straw. Medium body. Strange bitter blandness but not much support. (7/3/6/2/13) 3.1

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2014
Tap at Cíest What. Pale golden yellow pour with a thin white head. Nose is quite fruity and a little bit juicy. Some soft grapey sweetness along with a touch of melon. Moderate bitterness and some lingering crackery malt character. Pretty decent brew actually. Nice and dry.

jercraigs (9872) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2013
2014-08-30. Lightly hazy dark yellow body with a small quick white head. Aroma is muted, light citrusy lime and mineral quality. 6+ Flavour is mild, modest hops are sort of fruity, lightly bitter, subtle fruity hops have a mineral quality to it, that grows when i come back to it whisper of lime and citrus. Smooth average to thin bodied palate, low to no carbonation. Subtle, pleasant but quite mild for IPA! Just okay. I suspect it is better on tap. On cask at Volo, Toronto

Spab (3438) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2013
500 ml bottle from brewery. Pours a cloudy dull golden colour with modest-sized white head. Aroma is modest citric and piney hops, lightly sweet fruit and grains. Flavour has some gently sweet tropical fruit, bit of graininess and an understated citrus/pine hop bite. Modest bitterness in finish. Solid.
