2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours brilliant light amber, quickly diminishing head. Heavy malt aroma, little or no hop aroma, smells of mostly caramel and chocolate malt. Low hop bitterness for a bitter. I would categorize this as an English Mild rather than a best bitter. Itís alright.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Really nice beer - sort of like a harvest bitter. On cask at the brewery. Pours amber with a minimal head. Aroma is of light and biscuity malt, with lots of fresh English hops that contribute a flower and resiny aroma. Taste is light and balanced, with sweet light malt up front, and a mild hop bitterness towards the end.

on cask at the wooly. brownish red, minimal carbonation. the aroma was kind of earthy and sweet, but weak. The taste was much of the same - a bit of acidity, a bit of malt, but not much of anything. nice with pub food, but definitely boring on its own.

341 ml bottle @ Moon Room Ottawa. Pours a clear light amber with a pillowy white head. Aromas are funk and wet dog. Tastes are coppery malts, a little biscuit and roastiness, some caramel and borderline metallic. Light body, plenty of carbonation, and a short, slightly sweet finish. Interesting. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can, shared with TylerDurden. Medium orange-amber, aroma is caramel and grains, sweet and a little corny. Palate is grainy caramel, sweet and simplistic, but not in a positive way. This didnít appeal to me.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep amber with an off white head. Aroma of fresh crystal malts. A hint of caramel. Flavour is rich but not too much for the style. Malts are balanced by a subtle bitterness just to keep it in check. Medium body. Finish is nice, dry and balanced with a lingering grainy flavour. Absolutely wonderful, the first bitter Iíve actually liked.

Bottle. Deep gold/amber pour, white head. Light peppery aroma, malty caramel notes. Flavor is very light, subtle grassy hops, bitter but not hoppy. A bit light and watery. Palate is a little overcarbed for the light body. Good.

Welly comes through again, great beer @ 4 % ABV. Great colour, a nice happy finish.
Tastes great and you can have a second one cause it is "light"
All beer should be this good

473 mL can from the LCBO. Horrors a dark amber with a modest head that dissipates fairly quickly. Modest lacing. Very mild aroma. On the tongue well-balanced some hops a nice long pleasant finish with a hint of bitterness. Overall, a really excellent light beer and wine I would definitely order again.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is a golden coloured beer with some hints of red it. The head is thin, and disappears quickly. The aroma is weak malt, a little hop, and some piney scents. The flavour has malt up front, and finishes with a citrusy hoppy kick.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear dark yellow, average frothy head. Resiny citrus aroma with hints of corn adjunct. Metallic off-flavour, mildly bitter. Bleh. Maybe it was an off-bottle.

473ml can from the LCBO. Memories of living in Guelph. This isn't the best bitter I've ever had, but it is definitely the best light beer
