2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle from the LCBO
Pours a medium pale orangey yellow
Better then most macro beers but only average overall
I think this is a Golden ale and not an ESB

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle, "Circlemaster". Slightly hazy, pale golden colour, small white head disappears quickly, minimal lacing. Intense aroma of apples and malt, some hops. Hoppy, sour citrus notes and bitterness dominate at first, but the finish is slightly sweet, with a wee touch of banana lurking through. The sour-and-sweet character makes Circlemaster a very refreshing pale ale (a premium esb it is NOT), though Iíd marginally prefer the same companyís WychCraft blonde.

This had a terrible skunky smell, I could really hardly drink it. There was some hoppiness and the bottle art was cool - but the smell was just unbearable. If I have a chance, I may give this another try, it just seems like it should be better!

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours yellow with thin white head with good lacing. Nose is slightly skunky. The front half of the taste is lost in skunk. The latter half is hoppy and might be pleasant if this beer had not been ruined by ultraviolet light. Sigh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
aka Circle Master. Pours a huge bubbly white foamy head. Appearance is slight dark golden colours. Has thick lacing. Malty aromas as well as some grassy/earthy and floral scents. Pretty faint hops. Flavours are of light roasted malts. Some citrus like flavours as well, more hoppy in taste than aromas. Has a creamy mouthfeel. Smoothness on the palate. Average retention and medium carbonation. Not too bad, easy drinking.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light copper hue. Some carbonation. Pleasant enough looking head. Mild aroma of yeast, malt, and a little of hops. Reasonably bitter with a bit of malty aftertaste/residue in the mouth. Didn't taste a whole lot different than Fiddler's Elbow to me.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huh, 19 percentile points? Maybe itís me, but i liked it, certainly after you drank Wieckse Rose. Brown 500ml. bottle. Nice pineapply and peachy hop aromas. Good bitter, hoppy taste with some more fruit and some grainy malt. Ends hopbitter and a little sweet. Nice and drinkable and no skunk in sight!!

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a medium sized white head consisting of soapy bubbles that diminishes quickly. Faint hops in the aroma with a bit of corn/vegatable oil. Tastes BORING, and not only does it look soapy, but it tastes soapy, too. It isnít as bitter as it is bitter-sweet, with some light fruity notes. The hops are lemony and grassy and the malty backbone is bready/grainy and weak. At least the body wasnít really thin.
