UPDATED: SEP 20, 2013 RE-RATE: first glass off the keg tapped at Brothers BeerBistro, Ottawa. Even better than last year. More assertive hop character, deeper, richer malts. Beautiful. (Original rating = 3.6) Big swing-top bottle shared with Parksy, Davey, and Jeff. Handsome orange-amber body with a bubbly white crown that retains well and leaves drippy lace. Aroma is rich with earthy leafy hops and underlying toasty malts. Fresh hoppy palate, citrus peel and tea leaves, nuances of spice and earth. Very tasty, more English in character than American.

Phatman (176) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 13, 2011
On tap at Pub Italia, Ottawa. Familiar with this seasonal ale from the bottle. Pours a deep brown colour, not quite opaque but itís colour does belie itís hoppy nature. fresh malty aroma, some grassy notes and perhaps some citrus in there. Nice balanced flavour between the hops and malts. Definitely one iíd pick up again when i see it. Itís a big bottle for 6.4%

Purchased at the LCBO. Refreshing ale with a lovely, citrusy bitterness up front. Pours a beautiful copper colour. A very good ale to drink in fall weather.

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 8, 2011
Pours a clear bright pumpkin orange with a thin but lasting head and some lacing. Aroma is sweet light malt with a slight sour hop funk. Hop bite right from the get go, then the flavour rounds out to slightly watery caramel malt. Very present alcohol - peppery finish. Crisp body with ample but not overstated carbonation. Quaffable, but slightly sweet and boozy without being thick. Good all-round.

patricks110 (1620) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 7, 2011
The pour is a bright coppery auburn with a finger of yellow tinted head and no carbonation. Beautiful thick lines of frothy lacing. THe aroma is fresh and grassy with a huge dry hop and light malty toasted caramel and overall sweetness. The middle is sweet and fruity with a beautiful grapefruit and sweet caramely malts. A huge resinous and dry finish with a prolonged hop bitterness. A good amount of grapferuit acidity and light herbal pine. The mouthfeel is a little to lacking in body with no carbonation. Overall, a beautiful fresh hop brew with a taste more akin to an IPA then an APA.

kevinsenn (1080) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 5, 2011
750mL bottle from the LCBO. Pours clear copper colour. Aroma is beautiful - citrusy C-hops. Taste is very hoppy - grassy and citrusy. Medium bitterness hits you up front, with little bitterness in the aftertaste. Another nice seasonal brew from a great brewery.

JB84 (649) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2011
Pour copper orange with off white head good lace. Aroma harvest like aroma, cereal grain, bitter hops, oats,sweet malt. Taste cereal grain, quite malty, bitter hops, slight floral/floral, light caramel. MF medium sticky body fine carb. Solid session brew tasty big malt profile good but way to expensive.

presario (4643) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 1, 2011
Bottle. Copper with thin white head and lacing. Malt and hop scent. Nicely hopped but more ESB than APA. Woodiness and caramel. Gentle sweetness and a bit of hop kick in the finish.

pushkinwow (2017) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2011
750ml bottle from LCBO. Hazy dark amber with an off white head, drank while camping and had a lot of fun shining flashlights and looking at embers through it :) Light hops and malts, some spice but plain. High carbonation, average body, highly bitter and dry, quite tasty - pleasantly tasty.
