473ml can pootzboy (1784) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2017
Milton LCBO Outlet #1 (Milton, Ontario, Canada)

The beer pours a translucent gold colour with a generous white head that quickly dies down to a thin film covering the beer. The aroma is grainy malt, some off-smelling acidic tones, and yeast. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly creamy, and average carbonation. The flavour is grains, cereals, weak hop and yeast notes as well. Kolsch is a style style I neither love nor hate and this does nothing to change that.
Can from LCBO - puts a hazed copper-red ale in the glass with a tight off white cap which lasts well and laces the glass walls. Aroma of pungent NZ hops (Pacific Jade?) floral tones overpower the light toasty-caramel malt tones. Flavor is well balanced with a good floral/bitter hop punch staked against some well chosen malts....finishes moderately dry with a long lingering bittering from these juicy NZ hops - good drinker, easy to take more than one motski (6) - - JUN 8, 2017 does not count
Great, Great Beer! Purchased a couple of these 473 ml cans from lcbo (Tor.) a few months back. One of the best new Ontario craft beers I’ve tasted in a while, I’m hooked!. Love the well balanced combo of malts and hops. Definitely a west coast style influence,with an Irish red twist, yet not overly hopped as the malty body seems to tame the hops. Flavors of pine, carmel and bread. Nose is typical WC IPA style (hoppy). Forward bitterness of hop flavors and finishes very smooth and malty.
Pours rich ruby/rusty/dark red in color, with a nice full beige creamy head.
Nice lacing (definitely drink this beer out of a glass).
Pairs nicely with a homemade BBQ Burger, topped a sharp/nippy cheese, or Yorkshire Pudding.
Love this stuff! Highly recommend.
PS; Great contrast beer is Cowbell’s Absent Landlord (Kolsch Style). Very nice as well. omhper (25538) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2017

This is GNight’s little cousin. Malty, caramel, and nicely hopped. I would love for it to be more of a punch but when you don’t have regular access to G’Night, this will do nicely. And at 5.5% you can crush a few and not feel sorry. blankboy (7780) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2017
[Can (473ml)] Pours a dark amber with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Quite a pleasant hoppy aroma (7+), surprisingly so, along with some bready malt in the back. Hoppy & malty flavour with an average bitter finish. Average bodied. Enjoyable and pretty good. Radek Kliber (7470) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - FEB 23, 2017
Where and how: can LCBO 473? ml ChadPoole (478) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2017
Aroma: very nice hop profile, herbal feel to it on base red malts/ Good balance shown. Hints of spruce, nettle and mango.7+
Top: medium sized top, creamy with lace.
Base: hazy amber.
Palate : medium bodied, delicate carbonation. Very smooth
Taste: east coast vibe in this ale. Very approachable smooth character. Nice zesty side to it. Minor fault - perhaps sugars are a bit overexposed.
Pours cloudy amber with an off white head. Tropical fruits and citrus hops aroma and flavours with a mild bitter finish. Well done
