2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Old rate. 500ml bottle from LCBO. Red copperish colour, big foamy white head. Malty and fruity, bitterish aroma. Fruit tinged hoppy flavour with malt hints. Hops gets strong in finish. Dry mouthfeel. Hay, malty aftertaste. Uninspired.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Medium viscosity. Amber colour, with a white head. Nutty roasted flavour with something else i can’t put my finger on. Nice for once in a while, get boring if drunk too often.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Cardinal. Clear amber with a small creamy white head that lasts. Fair lacing. Tobacco dominates the aroma, both in nose and mouts, but there are other malty notes lurking. Hops are all used for bitterness it seems and there are also sweet flavors there with a toasted tobacco linked character. Medium bodied and vaguely syrupy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear red/brown colour with a very lacy white head. Malty on the nose with an aroma of a wet wool sock. Flavour of slightly toasted malts, nuts and caramel. Hoppy finish which is pretty nice for a 3,5% abv brew. Medium bodied. Pleasant bitter.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is bitter, caramel and roasty... the roastyness isn’t very welcome, doesn’t taste so nice, but anyway this is comfortable. [Bottle]

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
09/10 0.5 l bottle from the English store, Antibes. Couldn’t swear this is the right version, but the green 3,5% label rang my bells when saw this image. Brown to reddish bodied brew with smaller ocher head. Caramel, coffee, some chocolate and a bit of orange in its aroma. In flavor only orange is dominant, there are some toast and caramel, but just in traces. It’s bitter, with thin body and shorter bittersweet finish. Quite liked this one, despite slightly thinner body.
