2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 mL bottle in a mixed pack from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass. Clear orange amber with a decent light tan froth. Fruity, boozy, woody, earthy, similar to Innis & Gunn, a little floral, caramel and toffee notes, quite British. Medium body, fine effervescence. Toffee and treacle, lightly fruity, lightly woodsy and boozy; dry with moderate bitterness and a malty finish. Meh.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Type: 440 ML (14.9 oz.) nitro can
Glass: Stone Ruination IPA pint glass
From: Cherokee Market Beer & Wine in Normal Heights (San Diego), Calif.
Purchased: Oct. 25, 2013
Consumed: Oct. 27, 2013
Misc.: A part on the can read, “This can contains a floating widget which may rattle. Please do not shake the can before opening.”
Poured an auburn clear color with three fingers of khaki cream head after settling on the top. Getting there was a treat as the foam and lacing slowly made its way up. Very nice. Healthy amount of uneven thick lacing along the sides. Tons of thick foamy retention on the top all the way down.
Smelled caramel malts, sourdough bread, cereal, honey, iced tea, rye, plum, dark cherry and old apple.
Tasted pretty close to what I thought it was going to and a lot like the smell. Got iced tea, rye notes, caramel, honey, plum, figs and warm bread.
Medium body. Creamy texture. Soft-to-flat carbonation. Abrupt finish.
A decent English Pale Ale overall. I’d probably have it again.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from the supermarket. Bit of a murky aroma, with fruits, not great. Lovely golden colour with respectable head. Taste is a bitter over bitter. Pretty dull taste. Not nearly as nice as the Old Crafty Hen.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml Bottle It pours a lively off white head that quickly vanishes leaving a smallest amount of lacing over a golden brown body. Its aroma is biscuits, malts and caramel. It tastes slightly bitter to start with but then the malts and biscuit come through with the bitterness reappearing in the aftertaste. There is nothing to dislike about this beer, But theres not much too like either.

Nice thin creamy head on this and everything else you would expect from a good red ale. Malt biscuit taste leading up to a lingering and pleasant hop finish.
