2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Another spoilt beauty. Hazy golden ale with a thick white head. Sour diacetyl aroma. In mouth, the light lactic acid with the butterscotch makes this unpleasant, lemony. Light hops notes.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle from a trade with presario - Thanks Trevor! - Pours amber with a short white head that fades quick but laces. Aroma is of light malts and some floral hops. Flavor is grainy, a bit of bread and some brief hops on the finish. Palate is medium bodied and quite drinkable. Nothing great about this beer but it is drinkable and a little better than average.

fruity malt aroma, maybe some candy aromas as well. Pours a nice copper brown, nice tannish head that sticks around. Mid-range body. Hoppy, satisfying finish. Hoppier than most Canadian IPAs. A satisfying session-type ale and quite drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Purchased a 650ml bomber from Willow park. The pour revealed a amber-orange ale with a great sticky, long lasting cap. Floral-fruity aroma; sweet malts and a twang of citrus in the nose. Medium bodied, mellow...huge malts and lovely citrus-pine hops...moderately mild bitterness in the finish...a very malty and nicely hopped ESB....very drinkable...one of the best domestics of the variety I have tasted.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle. Amber to copper colour. Long lasting carved head. Not much for an aroma, light malt. Strong malt body with hops that build through the glass, getting stronger with each drink. Enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light amber with fine head. Aroma of pears and caramel followed by malty caramel flavour which itself is chased by a good dose of hops. This one has a neat dualism between hops and caramel sweetness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
This beer is aromatic but not pushy. It satisfies the upper palate with a tangy bitterness but finishes smooth and clean. The first tastes are of caramel and citrus. Very Satisfying.
