4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is the draft as served at the Firkin chain in Toronto. It is clean, rich-tasting, no sulphides or that type taste as I get in the canned one, good hops in the taste and finish (seems a combo of English and American), and pouring either lightly hazy or almost bright. A very good beer, well-made with an excellent flavor, very much on the craft vector: I doubt anyone would say it isn’t craft in a blind tasting.
I find the canned one not as good and I wonder if the draft and the canned are brewed at the same place, or with the same yeast. The canned one has the typical Creemore yeast background (kind of like a burnt match, sulphury), but the draft one at Firkin doesn’t. I much prefer the draft.

Bottle. Light roasted grain for the, faint herbs, light dough, and with faint dried fruit and a hint of honey. Head is average size, creamy with bigger bubbles, and has excellent lacing and good legs and is mostly diminishing. Color is slightly hazy, amber/orange. Flavor starts lightly acidic, and finishes lightly acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery with a lively carbonation. A pretty good beer and an easy drinking Strong Pale Lager.

Rating #894 - Grape Escape 2013 - bottle from Tylor from Granville island leftover from his booth. Pours golden color with a bubbly white head . Nose is orange zest and caramel.Citrusy, hop character dominated by an old-style malt forward beer. Light carbonation, but a woody orange note lingers into the finish, giving an apa kind of vibe. Bold grassy flavours throughout.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Malone’s Urban Drinkery, Vancouver, 5.3% ABV
Hazy dark amber color with medium sized compact head. Mild aroma, light malt and hop, some stale water. Dry caramel flavor; the mouthfeel is round and smooth; strong bitterness with a good quantity of hop resins, not much fruity. Some yeast heaviness in the final.
Could as well be an ale; pleasant but a bit dirty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery for Moose’s birthday, served in a tasting glass. Pours clear copper with a small beige head that fades to a thin remnant. The nose has citrus and a touch of resin, along with caramel and pale malts. The flavour is balanced between mild sweetness and soft citric hops with subtle resin. The finish is long and generously hopped. On the palate it is medium in body with a silky texture and soft carbonation. Overall, an interesting hoppy lager. Smooth but with a crisp hoppy bite. 2013-11-23

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz. Draught at Pearson Airport. The on-tap version was a little better than the can I had. Vibrant and hoppy, but not overly bitter. Long aftertaste. Slakes a thirst! Nice brown gold colouring with little to no head. I'd order this again
