meh... too much hype for a sub par beer. looks nice, pours well and even smells good, but it’s a bit too hoppy for my pallete. not indicitave of other Mill St. brews though.

I was thoroughly impressed with this beer. Strong hops aroma. The taste is mainly hops which is quite delightful. Perfect to relax and enjoy

One of my favorite beers. This beer is brewed in Toronto, Canada and it’s a killer when fresh. Unique flavour and long aftertaste.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
341mL bottle from LCBO. Pours a dark copper/red colour with a tan, pillowy quickly dissapearing head. Smells mostly of hops with hints of grass and spice. Taste consists of a complex combination of various bitter hops complemented with subtle notes of spice, grass, yeast and finally a faint yet surprising hint of sweet caramel. This beer is full bodied in nature with mild carbonation, definite long lasting bitter finish. I was pleasantly surprised with the complexity of this beer, a number of elements was present in this beer that seemed to be lacking in other comparable Canadian brews. I will drink this beer again, it’s not a plain old session beer by any means and showcases the variety offered to us by the Canadian breweries.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear red with a thin white head, slightly effervescent, with rather good lacing. Aroma of hops, quite floral, some malt, elements of the aroma are one of my favourite smells in beer. Taste was hoppy and sweet malts, with a long hoppy finish, not too bitter. Mouthfeel was that of a good session beer, a little thin, but very crisp. I’d like to try this on tap, and have many.

Meh all around. Looked great. Got a little metallic flavour off the nose and initial palate (most likely from the cap/bottle)

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This has been my favourite beer as of late. The bottle is a classic old school slender beer bottle. It pours quite dark with an off white fluffy head with good lacing. Aroma reveals a nutty maltiness and a lot of hops. The first sip reveals complex malts, supporting claims of four or five differents malts or whatever they’re claiming. But also lots of hops. This is primarily a hoppy beer.

Solid favourite from Mill Street. Can be a bit bitter for some, but hardly overwhelming. Nice spice to it. A winner from Toronto.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
341mL bottle pored in A&W glass. Smells of roasted hay. Clear coppery red-brown brew with very thin white head. Head dissipates quickly. Very bitter with a spiced bite to it. Enjoying the bitter but the spiced-sour flavour is definitely taking away from the darker malt flavours I wanted to experience in a five malt beer. Bottle boasts complexity of flavour - it may be too complex.
Thin, medium body keeps beer palatable. Carbonation is lost when poured. Has an astringent quality to the finish with a bitter aftertaste that seems to last forever.
Taste becomes almost acquired as you drink. Definitely not for everyone. Would not turn this down if offered another - but probably won’t buy this one again.
