3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap- Decants deep golden/amber with a frothy white cap. No lace left behind really. Nose is biscuity, doughy, and fruity pale malts with a very fresh, floral and spicy hop component. Almost pine like floral hops with good earthy malts combine and lead into bread and licorice with lots of caramel towards the finish. Slightly bitter in the finish with lingering caramel and dark bread. Pretty good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. At the brewpub. Clear bright light amber with a solid beige creamy head. Dry aroma of roast caramel malt, quite a bit of fresh grain character (somewhat oily), light herbal bitterness. The taste was sweet and tangy, fresh cereal grain balanced by mild hops. The body was average, a bit chewy on the palate, light squeaky astringency with a slight caramel aftertaste - overall fairly decent, perhaps a tad too much caramel for my taste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub. Now known as Dragoon’s Breath (note the extra ’o’), and contract brewed for KBC at McAuslan according to the menu. Deep golden-amber. Aroma of earthy hops and caramel malt, and flavour of both as well, with a short hop bite in the finish. Reminds me of McAuslan’s St. Ambroise Pale Ale, actually, although not quite as good.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear copper pour with a thin white head. Good aroma of floral hops with caramel. The flavor is less enjoyable than the aroma, the hops and caramel are still there but it feels flat. The body is light to medium with an oily texture.

Amber color, white head but does vanished very fast. It had a little scent of fruit, some flavor of hops. A pleasant ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub. Pours a clear golden-orange with a spare diminishing white head. Mild but nice hoppy aroma with some fruit in there -- simple but pleasant. Mild hoppy flavour with some malt and a light bitter finish. Light bodied. It’s a little light but it’s very easy to drink and a good example of the style -- a session Pale if there ever was one.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Their best brew offering of the night. A hop head delight, very bitter, with malting to keep it under some control. Minimal scent, English hops I presume, like an ESB. A little head.Light body, could use more balance but it’s a hop fix. Not liked by the locals as much.
