3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle my non-beer geek family members raved about it. The aroma is citrus and grainy caramel malts. Nice full body & silky smooth. The taste is a lightly citrus zest & mild caramel with some breadiness. A very clean English style pale ale. A well made beer but not outstandinfg or anything.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Tried this beer on recent trip to Southern Ontario. It is one of the best beers I tried in some time. Not your typical pale ale, a bit less hoppy. Almost more like an English brown ale.

On tap at the Winking Judge in Hamilton, Ontario. Pours with little head and a darker amber body. Aroma has malt all over it, and in the taste there is a slight hops bitterness. Finish is clean and crisp, with a nice bite in the throat. Decent.

341 mL bottle. Pours medium amber with a white cap. Mild fruit, apple, pear, butterscotch and grain. Slightly sweet with just enough hop to balance out. Moderate body and carbonation. Not bad, just not all that interesting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Kensington Bistro, in Toronto. Was a bit afraid to order it when I saw PALE ALE in the menu beside the name of the beer. But it’s actually a very decent beer. Was pleasantly surprised. Pours a nice amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet, some hops. Taste is a bit fruity, hops. Well-balanced.

Bad skuny pour at Allen’s patio on danforth. Southern Ontario skunk water on the nose. Dull wood on the tongue. This may be the pour itself. Will try elsewhere. Damn I hate this bar. They actually force you to order food.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rusty redish pour with a lacy head. Very little scent. Very easy to drink. Very very easy to drink. That just goes down so smooth. There’s nothing outstanding here and I think that’s a good thing. This is just a good beer that goes down well. The waitress at The Black Shire recommended this at Lunch, came back at 1am to try it. She was right. What, it’s 1am? No this hasn’t affected my rating.
