Pours very clear and clearly red from bottle. Aroma is good with some yeasty bready notes. Taste was a bit lacking and thin in character - almost seemed a touch watery.

(bottle) clear dark amber with small light brown head; aromas of stewed fruit, bit of citrus, bit of roast; balanced flavour with long light bitter finish; resembles more a light stout than an amber ale

Dark clear red pour, lots of clingy white head. Grassy hope nose. Starts off wet but goes dry quickly. Nice mix of tastes. A bit of malts, lots of raisin. Low carbonation. Very easy to drink. Something sweet in the finish. Clove.

Bottle courtesy of Dany I believe, probably in payment for smuggling lizards into Canada for him. You have to tape those little guys in places no one wants to think about. Pours a deep browned ruby with a thin beige tan head. Sweet malt and a touch of chocolate on the nose. Medium bodied, chocolaty, sweet malt and cocoa. Easy drinking, soft malt, leading into a gentle bitterness on the finish. Good stuff.

Deep ruddy amber pour. The nose is lightly caramelly with a touch of woody/earthy hoppiness. Moderately hopped with a touch of caramel sweetness. Pretty well-balanced actually. Decent session brew.

341 ml bottle. Pours brownish red in colour, moderate off white head. Nothing special here, a decent ale. Prob on the malty side of the balance beam. Not bad.

Nothing really special about this one. A nice balance but pretty plain. So by nice balance I’m not talking about two pianos on opposite ends of a see-saw perfectly cancelling out each others’ weight, more like a young giraffe walking. Toward the brown side of the amber scale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A really decent red. Smells like caramel roast malt and light hops. Steady foam that lasts through whole pint. Taste has a light sourness to it. Beer has a really dark maroon colour. On cask at Castro’s Lounge.

Bottle: Poured a medium brown color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of light dry caramel malt with some light cereal notes. Taste is also a mix between some non-descript cereal notes with some dry caramel malt. Body is average with good carbonation. Middle of the road amber ale.
