3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear copper colour, malt and floral aroma. Suttle caramel flavor. A bit of a tart finish. This is a great beer to have with pizza or nachos...but by itself, I would go with Picaroon’s best bitter or the red from the same brewery.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear light amber color with a white head that dissipates quickly and leaves lite lace. Smell is of cereal and pale malts. Taste is of cereal and malt with a smooth moderate bitter finish. If this beer had more body it sod be excellent. Too thin.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This ale poured a deep amber colour with a nice, big, off white coloured head. A little lacing in the glass. To the nose there are scents of sweet ripe fruit, apple cider and very light scent of malt vinegar. First sip had a med/high carbonation with flavours of ripe fruit, smoke and toast. Finish is lightly bitter with malt lingering.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the Saint John Ale House. Poured with a good solid head that lingered. Bit of lacing on the sides of the glass. Beer was clear, but colour lighted from a deep brown to a bright orange amber as I drank and more light could penetrate the glass. Taste was a good balance between sweet and bitter, but there was something else I couldn’t quite put my finger on that was tangy or a little sour. Body was medium with good carbonation. Overall, solid but not outstanding.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bought this one in Edmonston, N.B. when I was on tour with my band (summer 2009 and rated January 2010). Huge off-white head that is foamy and disappears at a medium pace, leaving some small traces of lacing. Its colour is golden-orange and hazy, with good amounts of carbonation. The aroma is pretty fruity, with some sweet malt and light hop. Fizzy mouthfeel and light-bodied. The taste is pretty tame with some grain malt, not even tasting the caramel malt expected. Over-carbonated amber ale that is only good to remember one of Saint John’s best mayor.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
500ml bottle. Pours clear, deep amber with eggshell head. Slightly sweet malt on the nose with an underlying funk that’s like freshly rotten egg. Much better taste; dominant slightly sweet cereal grain with a hint of fruit and a little roasted note. A little thinner than you’d like on the palate.
