On tap @canoebrewpub. Thin, mild, plain, unassuming. Booze, butterscotch and English hops. kramer (6905) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Tap. Pours a clear reddish amber body with a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is very light, a slight hint of butter, some toasty and caramel malt, minimal to no bitterness. The flavor is thin and sweet with some noticeable dactyl, a big turn-off for me. The minimal hop bill doesn’t do anything to hide it either. The malt is thin and husky with a grainy finish. Mouthfeel is slightly clingy with fizzy carbonation. Pretty poor attempt as a Bitter.

Daft - Toasted malts and lots of grain. Amber with a creamy beige head. Lots of grain with a dry bitter finish. Decent, would have been better with a lower ABV and they would have had a winner. Druid (101) - Wamuran, AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2013
Nice malt aromas with some hoppiness. Good bitterness and a short to medium finish. Rather smooth and creamy, ver enjoyable. solidfunk (9409) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Well done for style. Pours clear orange with good head and lacing. Brewerly smell malt, like when you drive by the Molson factory during boiling time. Carbonation a little below average, good for style. Better than a lot of bitters I’ve had in Victoria brewpubs. On tap at Canoe.

November 13, 2010 - Waterloo tasting with blankboy, jerc, mabel and tupalev. 22oz bottle courtesy of blankboy. Amber, almost gelatinous-looking with a raft of tiny dark suspended particles and an average white fizzy sticky head, even some lacing. Dry lightly fruity and leafy-bitter aroma, no alcohol and a hint of butcher’s paper. Does taste like a bitter, a bit dry and papery, herbal bitterness with a background of apricot marmalade. Solid body, almost harshly astringent, weakly carbonated, with a unwelcome long harsh bitter finish. Not bad, a bit odd, and overly bitter. blankboy (7808) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2011
My bottle [650ml] shared with HogTownHarry, tupalev, jerc & mabel. Pours a clear golden-orange with tons of tiny sediment and an average size frothy off-white head. Aroma of UK hops and the "butterness" I often get from them, along with grain and caramel malt. Slightly watery flavour of UK hops, caramel malt and a touch of spices in the finish. Average bodied. Not great, just good.
