Cannery Drupaceous Apricot Wheat Ale
Appearance: cloudy pale gold with two fingers of loose off-white head, good retention and lacing. (3/5) Aroma: apricot, wheat malt, lemongrass. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter, mild tart. (6/10) Medium-light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lightly tart and slightly astringent finish. (3/5) ďDrupaceous,Ē huh? I think thereís a pill for thatÖ a little blue oneÖ (Yes, I know it refers to stone fruit - maybe you even knew that apricots, peaches and cherries are all drupes. But did you know coffee is too?) I guess itís pretty much what it says on the label - apricot and wheat, and thatís pretty much it, without much complexity to speak of. A little bit plain and a little bit astringent, but not unpleasant. (12/20)

Cannery Drupaceous Apricot Wheat Ale - Passion Fruit
On tap at St. Augustines on Rare Beer Tap Takeover. Aroma is candied peaches/apricots, malty. Taste is dirty, malty, hoppy bitter. Amazing aroma and a very bad taste. Meh.

Cannery Kiss Yer Cousin Kentucky Common
Amber, thin head. Aroma has a light bready note and a touch of molasses. Soft, sweet amber with nutty accent and a fair bit of fruitiness.

Cannery Trellis IPA
Tap at the brewery. Amber with a touch of haze. Mango, grapefruit aroma. Quite toasty, with lots of bitterness, fruity hop. Toasty dry finish. Maybe a bit light. A little disjointed in that the type of hops doesnít match up with the style of malts.

Cannery Trellis IPA
650ml bottle pours a clear golden orange color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is pleasant enough with a little funk with some fruity and floral notes. Taste is a malty sweetness with a light citrus hop bitterness. Light in body for the style with moderate carbonation. A little low in alcohol and body for the style, but still a competent brew.

650ml bottle pours a hazy pale amber color with a finger of white head that leaves very little lacing behind. Aroma is caramel with some light grains. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a light grassy hop bitterness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a typical brew that suits the style well, but nothing special.

Cannery Drupaceous Apricot Wheat Ale
650 ml bottle. Plain orange-and-blue label, not like that pictured above. Pours a nearly clear honey blonde colour with big white head that diminishes to 1/8" fed by continuous supply of tiny bubbles. No sediment at all. Aroma of wheat malt and apricots. Taste is a clean dry ale with a touch of subtle apricot or rather nectarine. Mouthfeel dry, with a bitter finish. Not particularly characteristic of a wheat beer. Still, quite refreshing and suitable for a hot summer day.

Cannery The Muse & The Golden Promise

Cannery Kirk in de KŲk Baltic Porter
Appearance: Alpha morning without interrupting light... Aroma: Oddly absent in the chalice: a dozen fishhooks with traces and broken bits of metal . From the vessel anguished cries of bean-deprived molasses, petrified toffee, sticky cherry coffee, cigarillo sighs, and stale chocolate kisses. A suspicious alley dweller mumbles midnight pleasure inexatitudes on the fringes of my nostrils.... Taste: Slivers of dried wood agitate the imagination. Something of the primitive aquatic slithers among the tongue and molars. Burnt herbs fall apart in the mouth to dust the path of the arrival of the Prince of Alcoholic Cola, an entity who leaves wafts of vanilla in his wake.... Overall: Neither King nor Emperor of the Fortified Black Continuum, yet not without potential.

Cannery The Muse & The Golden Promise
Appearance: clear pale gold with two fat fingers of growing rocky white head, good retention and patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: citrus, grassy/herbal, biscuity pale malt, catty/skunky. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, mild bitter. (7/10) Medium-light body, moderate carbonation, off-dry mild bitter and warming finish. (3/5) Definite Simcoe hops, starting off as almost-but-not-quite-catty and almost-but-not-quite-skunky before settling down somewhat - and I donít mean that in a negative way: it tiptoes right up to the line, but stops just shy of being offensive. The net effect is one of decent complexity and depth in a pleasing APA. Kind of odd that the ABV is as high as it is for the style, but itís not intrusive, and manifests only as a mild warming. (14/20)

Cannery Trellis IPA
On tap at Cannery, pours a hazy copper with a small beige head. Aroma brings out creamy piney hops and light bready malt on the underside. Flavour is dry and lightly punchy, with piney dry hopping and crisp biscuity malt to back. Standard IPA but competently brewed. Nothing very interesting.

On tap at Cannery, pours a pretty clear copper with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out light biscuity malt, not much else. Flavour is decent for a boring style, with bready malt showcasing. Not a whole lot to this, but itís clean and easy to drink. Meh.

Cannery The Muse & The Golden Promise
Sampled from the bottle @ Calgary Beerfest 2016. First off, I want to compliment Cannery on the label for this beer-- please keep going in this direction! Your old labels are fine, but dreadfully boring. Anyhow, on to the beer. Medium golden hue, white cap. Lightly toasty crackery malts, with lovely light florals and fruit esters. Moderate bitterness in the finish. A pleasant blonde ale, easy drinking.

Cannery Knucklehead Pumpkin Ale
Pours a deep amber/brown colour with a creamier tan head. Aroma is of pumpkin with not much spice to it. Taste is reasonably sweet with a nice malty undertone. Smooth and slightly creamy on the palate, thinner mouth feel, and moderate carbonation. Overall a good pumpkin ale.

Cannery The Muse & The Golden Promise
Bottle. Deep gold colour, thin bubbly head. The aroma has a mellow simcoe character with sweet pale malts, with delicate fruitiness from the yeast. On the palate, this has light to moderate bitterness, balanced by a pale malt presence that borders on heavy. Thereís a hit of alcohol in there, too. The hops maybe arenít as bright as could be, but this is a pretty good beer, well-balanced and it fits an interesting gap being a stronger golden ale thatís not hoppy enough to be a blond IPA.

Cannery Squire Scotch Ale
Bottle. Pours a brown copper, thin white head, no lace. Nose is sweet , caramel, fruity, and a little off metallic scent. Tastes thin and rather smoky off the start, itís really not good. Thereís a sweetness, but Iím thinking this isnít the way it normally should taste.

Draft - Chocolate and blackberry, just like the chocolates. Jet brown with a light brown head. Just as it smells with a hint of boozy sweetness in the finish. Think those alcohol filled dark chocolate cups. Not my thing, but exactly as advertised.
