2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Had this before, but now rating off tap at Darby's. yellow gold pour. Aroma of honey nut Cheerios that have been sitting in 2% dairy milk on the counter for about 9hrs, with a slight punch of residual alcoholic burp as you smell the bowl of thick soup. Taste is pretty much the same. Quite malty cereal. I just want to drink water, cuz dairy makes me thirsty. Good marketing ploy from an up-and-coming sell-out like GIB. Molson doesn't have too much stranglehold on the island yet. Phillips is still the top contender, and this beer is pure evidence.

Clear Amber copper colour. aroma is malt heavy some cereal some biscuit with a hint of resin hoppiness. Medium bodied malty flavour sort of fast flavour profile and a hint of bitter finish. Not very remarkable from I brewery I usually enjoy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light brown pour small beige head. Light and bready aroma, light cereals, and some subtle UK hops. Lightly pungent, and very soft. Some good aromas abd flavours, but everything seems quite soft. A nice quaff, easily drinkable, low bitterness, with a solid nutty, UK hop finish.

Can from the LCBO. Clear deep amber with a one finger rocky off-white head that lingers. Nose is brown sugar and bread with just a hint of grass. Medium light caramel with only the lightest of bitter notes. Mouth is medium light and a tad thin with soft carbonation.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
473 ml can from LCBO, served cool in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear deep amber with a fair light tan head.
Aroma: Earthy, British toffee/caramel, bready, some DMS (I think), maybe lightly floral.
Palate: Medium body, medium+ carbonation.
Flav.: Quite malty with some sweet caramel/toffee notes, bread crust, still has some DMS (pretty sure), a bit floral and earthy; off-dry with moderate bitterness and a decidedly malty finish.
Not for me.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught (can’t bring myself to write ’draft...’). Mid-amber with a tobacco aroma which also continues through to the taste profile. Adequately hopped and not unlike an English bitter. Certainly, whenever I drank it, it tended to have too much carbonation for the style so a spare glass was de rigeur. Not bad but struggles some way down the second division.

Bottle. Generally clear amber pour with a small tan head. Mostly malt aroma, same in the taste. Only mild hopping throughout. Still a good drinkable beer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice looking amber, rocky white head. Good lacing. Usual British pale ale aromas: little hop, nice malt. Nothing too big. Taste is not that good. Malty bitterness at the end. Kind of dead in the middle. Fairly light overall. Oh well.
