3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Nice beer, but not true to style. Aromas of caramel, and butter. Aroma is sweet, with average length. Palate is silky, with a thin body. Amber, with a frothy head.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Windmills in Kingston. Deep copper with a thick nitro-looking tan head. Aroma is not good: veggie compost with sweet undertones. Flavours are decent enough-- toffee, vague dark fruits, low bitterness.

Bottle shared by Dogbrick as a precursor to his Portland beer tasting. Pours a clear gold/copper with a medium off-white head. Malty nose with cream and caramel. Creamy malt flavor with a bit of a bitter hop finish. Not knocking my socks off, but better than I expected.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark amber with a small white head. Light malt aroma. Taste is mild caramel, malt and hop. Nice balance but nothing special.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the "Portland? Psh More Like Beerland" tasting on 03/10/10. Bottle courtesy of a traveling colleague. The beer is a clear dark amber color with a medium thin and foamy off-white head that dissipates slowly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Grainy malt and hops in the nose. Medium, smooth body with flavors of sweet malt, mildly bitter hops and a touch of molasses. The finish is malty with a lingering light hops aftertaste. Okay overall.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
At my hotel in Niagara Falls. This was a lot like an amber ale. The appearance was amber, white head. The aroma was bread, caramel, malts. The flavor was caramel, and a sourdough bread taste, actually enjoyable. The finish was bitter, mainly from noble hops. The mouthfeel was thin/medium. Not bad at all.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Woolwich Arms in Guelph
The aroma was almost no existent slight sweet hops
Pours a pale cooper with a small white head with good lacing
The taste was fairly mild and i am unsure whether the keg was old or not so this one will need to be revisited at some point

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Strong ale? Eh? Not quite. Pretty mild, a bit corny and syrupy, not fermented enough. Lacks any kind of decent hop character. Way too sweet. My mom would probably like this. Ah well.
