2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
4th March 2015
Hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and a little dry. Grainy pale malts, creamy sweetness as well. Mild floralness and tangy fruits. Mellow chilli warmth before the light dry finish. Really not that much going on here.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Cloudy light amber color, white head. Aroma of mixed tropical fruit. Taste is all about the cedar, which dominates all else. Interesting.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Golden color, just hazy, with small compact head. Mild aroma, dusty malts, lightly fruity (6.5). It has some light caramel flavor, very light residual sweetness, not really a spicy kick, while the chilies provide a rather unpleasant vegetable, soil touch (5.5); medium-to-strong bitterness, with a light unpleasant vegetable bitterness.

On tap @ Uncle Henry’s Deli. Clear orange pour with a white head. Aromas of green pepper skin, earth, soap, and spicy cedar aromas. Gross. Sweet banana taffy and bubblegum. Flavor is a mess as well. Spicy from the chile peppers and cedar. Banana candies, bubblegum, and lots of pepper skin. Slight earth/dirt character and grass.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden-amber, frothy head. Aroma has some light pale malts, and a slightly fresh character of chile. The taste is a bit old/vegetal, with a lot of doughy malts and the faintest bit of chile.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours orange gold with a creamy white head. Aroma suggests El Pollo Loco chicken! Med body. Flavor is citrus and mild chili with a little malt. Not kidding about El Pollo Loco. Their flame grilled chicken gets a nice crust. This is the weirdest experience. But it’s a good one. Ale is finishing sort of astringently woody/citrusy with a touch of chili - heading for the dry side.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured clear orange copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy yeast and cedar wood aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate spice bittersweet flavor with a medium spice bittersweet finish of moderate duration. This beer met my expectations.
