3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
341ml Bottle. Pours clear orange-amber with resistant head. No distinguishable aromas other than those coming to light once tasted; predominantly nutty, malty and a touch of some fruity and floral aromas. Medium carbonation and light-medium mouthfeel with a dryish finish; a touch cloying on the back of the palate, lingering for some time. Not a bad one. This brewery is better than average, worth a look.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. LCBO. Pours an attractive golden brown with a medium sized, fast dissipating white head. Pleasant fruity aroma. Taste is thin and watery, not much bitterness, not much to wrap the tongue around. After the pleasant surprise of Iron Duke, a real disappointment

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I really like this. Sort of sour and sharp on the palate, with a smoky aftertaste. Not too hoppy or aggressive, but tasty.

[on tap at The Manx in Ottawa]
Weak, slightly sour base malt aroma with a toffee note. Clear orange-amber under a thick, white ring. Weak toasty malt flavour with a touch of sour caramel. Light body, low carbonation, toasty sour finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I really enjoy this, could probly drink all day. Smells floral, fruity, spicy, buttery, not strong though. Goes down easily, mild carb, weak finish. Flavour is a little weak as well. Great overall for the price.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: SEP 26, 2009 Poured out a large bubbly white head that stays forever, messy lacing and a super clear, nice amber coloured beer. The aroma seems thick and fragrant. Sweet, doughy bread malts, faint citrus hops, hint of spice. The taste is very watery, similar taste as the aroma minus the fact that you can notice it when you think about it. I notice it more when slamming it back. Ok bitterness. Too fluffy to let me drink more than 1 quickly. Man, this is waaay to mellow. Not that bad but there are better options from England for almost the same price (at least here!)

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
"Rich crystal clear copper body a ¼” cap floats on top, meh…. looks like a beer nothing special. Blech what a ungood aroma!!!!! Sour sweaty crotch, or possibly old hiking boot with an underlying sweetness. There is nothing appealing about this aroma, it’s like as if caramel could rot this would be what it would smell like. Taste is marginally better then aroma. Sweet malts, grass, a crisp hopiness, more grass, very mild hints of coffee, and some hazel nut in the finish. I could probably drink this beer and not think about it and it would be fine but when you actually concentrate on what your drinking here it falls apart."

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Sweet buttery malt aroma. Smooth butter. A good kind of candyness to it as well. Nice finish where the hops come out at the end. Very solid beer that can go well in any situation.
