2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
I like GRITSTONE somewhat, so my biased opinion is that Millstone is a dumbed-down version of that. It has less demanding, tenacious graininess than its older brother, and a sweeter finish that improves as the beer warms. Cold it comes across a bit metallic. Thinnish body. But pleasant overall. A good refresher and shockingly well priced, if nothing terribly special (I’d favor Creemore UrBock anyday, but you can’t buy that just any day.)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bouteille de 341 ml achetée directement à la brasserie lors d’une visite dans la région de la péninsule de Niagara. Arôme: Arôme de fruit. Apparence: Couleur dorée sans mousse. Saveur: Goût fruitée d’agrume. Palette: Très léger en bouche avec une légère acidité d’agrume. En résumé il s’agit d’une bonne lager de microbrasserie. (Rating #4)

A very good local lager on par or better than Creemore....except NFB millstone is uniquely different so comparisons are moot. Just got back from the falls and pulled one from the saddlebag cooler on the bike....poured a clear light gold with a 2 finger frothy white head that stayed as a 2cm cap the rest of the drink (good malts lots of protein in this froth). Aromas of sweet malt and apricot or pear..nice nose to it. Started clean then a nice whack of sweet malt hits you balanced off with the fruity undertones of the hops...the finish is nice...mellow with malt/fruit after tastes...deee-lishh-us. I like this lager and think it’s one of the best cottage brewed lagers in Ontario (for my tastes anyway)

Nice aroma and taste of apricots. Malty and very pleasant. Fruity aroma--odd for a lager but quite nice. All in all a good bit of beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2008 2008-08-10. Fairly muted aroma, light malt. Flavour is fairly clean, pale malts with a light accent of bitterness. Average palate. Decent, but unexciting. 6/3/6+/3/13 - 3.1Draft, Toronto Festival of Beer
July 2004. I rated this fairly highly at the time but don’t remember liking it THAT much. Average lager with fruity and hoppy notes. decent. 5/3/5/3/11 - 2.7 C’est What Festival of Small Breweries

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottle) Pours a thin white head and a pale yellow body. Sweet and fruity. Slightly above average. On a side note: I am glad to see that this brew by Niagara Falls isn't that distintive copper colour of the other beers... I was starting to think that was the colour of the water in that city.

golden colour. this is a good drinkin’ lager without being the most interesting. it has some nice citrusy hop notes and an overall clean malt flavour.
