341mL bottle from LCBO. Pours deep copper with an off-white head. Spicy and hoppy flavours. Good beer.

Bought randomly at the national Arts Centre in Ottawa.... hey, isn’t it odd that people can flock here from regions round while most of Canada may never have heard of the place? Nonetheless it was in a bottle with okay head and aroma....it’s a decent mix of barley and hops, drank from the bottle waiting for my show’s doors to open. Are these people seriously for real? The frizzy hair, the central-Canadian couteur, as someone not from this region it’s just surprising that people actually live this way. But nonetheless.... Bonny and Clyde would be proud. This is a decent brew to drink while waiting for one’s theatre to open. Or, perhaps, to imbibe whole the Algonquin river flows in the summer solstice night.

Not sure why this beer gets so much praise, it’s got a decent bitter kick but the body lacks depth and the aroma is minimal. Has a slight harshness to the end that is not pleasing. More hype than beer, unfortunately - it’s not bad, just not great.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2013 Surprisinly complex for only 5.2 ABV. Spicy notes at the front, with lots of citrus notes on the back. Lack of biterness is surprising. Quite sweet malt at the front as well.

Very nice deep red, moderate lasting head. As always, a wonderful aroma of Cascade hop. Perfect amount of citrus and floral smell. Taste is just the right combination of bitter, but not stupidly so, and good malty sweetness. Palate is a nice dryish bitter, but perhaps could be a bit more solid overall. Still, as I tell everyone who asks me, this is the beer that everyone should be drinking, all the time, everywhere.

A deep copper-red colour. Very nice aroma. Has a bit of a sharp taste to it at the beginning. Overall I like it.

Aroma is one of beer’s most complex features. Aroma is propelled by lively CO2 and dampened by pillowy heads - especially nitrogen foam. Click on a term below to add it to your tasting notes.
