2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brown colour, dull head. Sharp and mettalic flavours make this pretty regular beer; lacks the fruitiness required. Draught.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This is the first Canadian beer I had on my trip to Toronto in 2013. I drank this on the suggestion of my hosts in Toronto when we went to a Thai restaurant. It wasn’t particularly tasty. It was rather mild, dark in color, with a subtle brown sugary sweetness.

From old notes.
Malt, fruit and an appetising pear drop to almost diluite prune quality makes this more interesting than you would expect. Dry end, some hops but very restrained. Relatively decent mid oaky colour. Not too bad really.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
341ml bottle pours a brownish red color with a 2 finger off-white head that retains well and leaves some thin spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is light roasted malts and mild fruits and hops. Taste is light roasty malt and hoppy bitterness balanced with some caramel malty sweetness. Light to medium body with modest carbonation. A pretty decent, easy drinking beer that I enjoyed sampling.

Ruby Red with a thin tan quick disappearing head. Ruby smell of pomegranate, light malt, bread, nut with light roast. Crisp medium slightly oily body, fizzy. Nut, roast, sweet caramel malt, with a light soft bitter finish, no aftertaste. Very easy to drink, lightly watery smooth. Clean, spicy and very nice.

Pours dark brown, clear with some reddish tinges and a moderate off-white head. Mild aroma with hints of roastiness, caramel and dried figs. Sweetish flavor, some dark fruit and floral notes, nothing outstanding, but not bad. Medium body and pleasant carbonation.
