3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Poured a clear brown color ale with a rather large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of light dry biscuit malt with some light bitter notes. Taste is dominated by dry biscuit malt with light roasted malt notes with some light dry bitter hops notes also noticeable. Body is about average with good carbonation. Enjoyable but a little bit too much toasted malt notes for my taste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Autumn-amber colour with a big off-white head that falls back to a thin but lasting cap. Aroma of toasted malt with some light roastiness and a squeeze of citrus oil. Flavour has a great malty base - very toasty, but earthy, some slightly burnt brown sugar, sweet barley cereal, hint of cocoa - balanced by a healthy dose of hops that offer notes of citrus and pine, culminating in a very nicely bittered finish. Very enjoyable!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sweet, fruity aroma but hard to get any real nose from it, subtle, somewhat vanilla. Deep red with minimal light head. Pretty standard ’supermarket beer’ but has some character, metallic malty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep amber pour with a thick sticky off-white head. The nose is quite spicy with a nice rich maltiness. It has a very lovely earthy sort of bitterness along with some peppery flavour. More assertively bittered than many examples of the style. Pretty nice pint really.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Chestnut brown with offwhite head. Light aroma of bready malts but I really can’t pull much more out of it. The body of the beer is really smooth and encompasses the beer really nicely. Flavour is rich & full, nutty malts with a mild citrusy twist lingering in the background.... flavour eases of to a mellow aftertaste.
