3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Copper color, big fluffy white head. Aroma of malts, a touch of some caramel and some overall earthiness. Earthy malt flavor, some bitterness following, but the bitterness doesn't seem to come from the hops too much. Medium body. Not bad.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2007 Bottled - Smokeless Joes Toronto. Uninteresting musty aroma but a pleasant grey-black colour. The flavour is interesting with a malty tanginess. Not a bad beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep copper colored. Nose is mainly malts, with a hint of caramel and a fruity undertone. Nutty doughy malt flavors with a mild hoppy finish. Not outstanding, but not awful.

Pours red clear. Berries and apples in the sweet slightly spiced nose. Mild fruitiness, floral. Some caramel and pepper. Good hop bitter. A little weak or waterery.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2008 2008-08-26. Crisp dark copper body with a modest tan hand. (3+) Mildly tangy dusty malt aroma, caramel touches. (6+) Similar character to the flavour where a decent amount of hoppy bitterness combines with the slight tang in the malt, sweet caramel malt base. (6+) Average bodied palate is a touch more full than average. Decent but I do not love it. 6/3/6/6/13-14 - 3.1On tap at Volo, Toronto.
Feb 2004. Bottle. I have enjoyed previous samplings of this much more than this bottle. Orangey amber body with waifish off white head, has nutty playdoh (?) aroma to it. Flavour is interestingly different with some malt and bitterness, mostly towards the finish. Hmmm... 5/3/6/3/12 - 2.9

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice simple malt aroma. Very clear amber colour with light white head. Sweet munich malt flavour but slightly sticky overall. Mild carbonation and refreshing mouthfeel. This is a pretty stright forward but emminently drinkable beer. Bottle.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Orange body, rather clear. Decent sized off-white head, but bubbles are irregular. It sticks the glass okay though. Malty aroma, bready, nutty, lacking a bit ofof depth. The taste is heavily sweet with notes of caramel and a weird late cherry syrup profile. Moderately carbonated, big water character. Lightly bitter finish. It seemed pretty ordinary and thin, I think I drank the whole glass in less than 5 minutes, it had been a while since I've done that with a first-timer.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crystal clear orange brew with a creamy, off-white head. Interesting ink-blot lacework.
Nutty, caramely aroma with notes of English toffee and milk chocolate.
Malty, nutty flavor. Medium-bodied with a fizzy mouthfeel. Medium-length, dry, grassy finish. Very satisfying! Could prove to be a very good Fall session beer!
