1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can from LCBO. A hazy reddish amber alw with a thick big bbuled light moka head. A light berry aroma with light caramel. In mouth, a sourish beer, with astringent medical notes. Light nuttyness and butter in finish. Infected...surprising since this is canned. Oh well. Drain pour.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Amber brown, cream coloured head. Sweet candy honey aroma, bit of a strange note to it. Pleasant bitterness is a touch astringent and has a bit of the same strange character as the aroma. Light candy sweet orange and very astringent lemon. Average palate. Tough to tell if this is a bit off (I only got it a few weeks ago at the brewery) or it was just never in very good shape. Disappointing.

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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500 ml can in Toronto. Reddish brown color, low white head. Highly effervescent. Rather weak aroma of caramel malt and hops. A touch of dark fruits. Fruity, malty flavor. Smooth, with dark fruits and some bitterness that is quite earthy. Slightly candy-like as well. Not really special or interesting, but quite drinkable and not really bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[206-20070215] 473mL. Doughy yeasty under-baked bread aroma with grassy earth undertones and a hint of animal qualities. Clear, brown red body with fast-rising small bubbles and a medium-lasting light tan foamy head. Flavour continues under-bakedness of bread, less grassy and more lemon in the aftertaste. Medium body with both a smooth and sour pucker feel. Comes together but it’s an odd combination.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can. Fourth beer of the night for my own Swill (or almost swill) Fest. Pours a hazy orange-amber with a small diminishing off-white head. Mild aroma of sour apples, grain, sweet malt and...meh, I don’t know -- too sour and crappy. Flavour is also sour and grainy, almost astringent and harsh, along with some sugary sweetness. Light to average bodied. Man, this just isn’t good, I would think this is off but I just got this can a week ago. A typical awful Canadian Cream Ale.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Amber ale with small ring on top, middle fizz. Aroma accented with light sugar candy and fruits. Thin front (body), strange flavours in the middle, malts, spice. I am not sure if this ale was planned to be like that. Poor.
