A promising start on the aroma front this beer sadly falls away when your lips and nose are struck by the carbonation which is way to intense and strikes me as a mask for the beer’s shortcomings. A shame as its other elements are very encouraging indeed.

Can from the beer store.
I have had this before but it has been a while.
Nice colour, not much hop, but malty and smooth for sure.
A touch on the sweet side, which works from time to time. For sure the best thing @ the moment from Mill Street

Pours a dark copper/caramel colour. Decent head. Above average lacing.
Aromas are big sweet caramel malts.
Tastes are malts, bit of molasses, a smidgen of nuttiness, a touch of red fruit peels.
Overall, I wasn’t expecting much and I have to say this one surpassed my expectations. Not a bad beer at all.

For a pale, incredibly malty. And particularly smooth considering it is an ale. Nice!

Bottle at my uncle’s place. It pours a crystal clear golden brown with a big malty aroma, nutty cocoa. The taste is nice and clean maltiness with a little tangy citrus. Pretty good.

Pours a dark copper with fluffy off white head, and the aroma has notes of citrus, spice, roasted malts, toffee, and caramel. Tasting notes include citrus and tropical fruits from the Cascade hops, and nice malty notes of roasted barley, and a slight bitter finish. This is not a bad APA at all! I was pleasantly surprised.

Bottle from LCBO. Pours dark amber with a slightly off white head. Light toffee, light bread aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. I’ve had this numerous times and its possibly better on tap. There’s caramel, lemon, a little tangerine, toast... It’s easy drinking. Nice.

Tapped at the I think Mill Creek pub in Orangeville/Canada.
Floral hops, sweet aroma. The aroma reminds me of an air refresher used for restrooms.
Color copper dark, head creamy and stable, kept a 4mm level.
Taste a balance of malt and hops, malt major. Caramel malt a bit. Really creamy in taste. Full bodied.
Overall a great ale!
