2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Taps, amber-red color, with a beige head, light toasted, caramel malt, metallic nose with a hint of soapy detergent for cleaning tank, and a subtle fruitiness aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a sweet grainy, toasty, biscuity, caramel malt, fruity, ripe apple character, with a faint cookie dough, spicy nutmeg flavour, and a faint nutty accent, leading towards a toasty, caramel malt sweetness, and a lingering hop bitterness finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Taps on Queens in Niagara Falls. Pours a crimson hued light brown with a medium sized white head. Loads of caramel, light malt, and a bit of toast and maple. Medium bodied, creamy, with some cream soda flavors coming through. Finishes up with a light dry bitterness. Best of the first four I’ve had.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
very hazy orange/light brown, massive head that lingers. apples, bread yeast, orange, somewhat unpleasant nose. something chemical. medium carbonation, weak flavour profile. mouthfeel is generally good, yet the flavours are really hampering this experiance for me. again something chemical, slightly metalic, apples. no, not at all digging this.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
It poured a cloudy dark amber liquid with a big foam that left a nice lacing. The smell was a bit weak but I could sense malt, bread, hint of nuts, meath brooth and something sweet. It also had a weak taste with some malt, bread, hint of meat brooth and someting sweet. Easy to drink with a low bitterness. However slightly accidic at the end.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Starts off kind of a cute cottage beer - cheery orange-red pour, forward flavors and aromas of slighly tangy ale-fruits and fresh yeast. Nods to english style. Caramelly. Turns kind of malt-extract-like later in the glass, with a clingy sweetness that wrecks the finish a little. Feels a bit soapy, the hops don’t express well. Under-attenuated sugars? A little bit Home-kit like. Not a repeat. Is cute to look at though.

Can. Ugh, it’s like they’ve mixed coke with a cream ale. Way too tangy and sweet. This was pretty disgusting.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Poured red-amber with creamy head. Tart apple aroma. Medium mouthfeel, tangy malty. Medium bitter finish that lasts til the next sip. Not as smooth as other cream ales I’ve tried.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a dark amber red with a one finger creamy head. Some lacing.
The smell is very one dimensional malt which is sweet and sugary. Not an overly complex or enticing aroma.
The taste is way too sweet from start to finish. There is almost no hop character to the beer, but the malt isnt complex enough to carry the taste like a brown ale or scotch ale. Quite strange. Very unbalanced.
Mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied with a pretty low carbonation. Kind of feels flat in the mouth.
The sweetness is too much and makes this beer pretty undrinkable. I could barely finish the can, let alone have another. Add some more damn hops

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught @ Winking Judge. Clear, red, with small white head. Blackberry, tobacco, and cherries in the nose. Weird cherry pit bitterness at the end. Strange but drinkable.
