Draught at Cest Whats Fall Festival of Craft Breweries. Pours a clear orange with a spare quick diminishing frothy white head. Aromas sweet, a bit sugary, along with very light floral hops and grain. Flavours also sugary sweet with a bit of fruit, some light hops and a light bitter finish. Average bodied. Just O.K., Im not loving this, too sweet.

Bomber from the Church, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Hazy deep amber with a decent dirty-blonde head. Aroma: Some decent malts marred by a definite infection organic acids, light barf, I wonder if the Lactese Falcon had something to do with this... Palate: Medium+ body, moderate effervescence. Flav.: Better than the nose, meaning a good deal less nasty, decent biscuit/caramel, med-roasted malts, a little earthiness, a touch of peppery Noble hops, still with organic acids lurking in the shadows; dry with a strange mix of brightness and fairly aggressive bitterness, not enjoyable, with an earthy/malty finish and a touch of barf.

I am getting a little tired of this brewery. The few times Ive been to the Church, I wasnt impressed with the overall friendliness of the staff. And $10.50 for a bomber?? Gimme a break! Go to BC, go to QC, go to USA and a $10 bottle is some mind-blowing beer. Even without the infection, this wouldnt be worth the money.

On tap @ Volo. Candied nose, light copper, has the tiniest tan head. Taste is generic red cough drops, sticky sweet, tough to drink a whole pint. Poor offering.
