bottle. clear coppery colour with a foamy with head that last a whiles enough. Fairly expressive aroma with classic malts, caramel, biscuit and some floral hops but there is a touch of yeast on this that isn’t pleasant. On the palate those caramel like notes dominate this medium bodied brew that sports a fast finish and overall watery mid palate. It is all about those malty and caramel notes. Not as bad a beer as expected. Strangebrewer (1327) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 12, 2014
bottle. Poured slightly hazy, deep amber with a creamy beige head. Tart citrus aroma with bready malt. Medium-light body, average carbonation, dry finish. Tart and bitter grapefruit right away with pepper and woody malt notes. probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2014
500 mL bottle from LCBO served cool in a tulip glass. Hazy deep amber with a tight, light tan head. Quite floral, spicy, nice, toasted bread crust, maybe a hint of toffee, some citrus, quite inviting. Megyn body, prickly, sparse carbonation. Something isn’t right, tangy, almost acidic, slight burnt nuts, still has done decent malt and hops character, but this must have a light infection; dry with fair bitterness, unfortunate tang and a pleasantly malty finish. Will grab another bottle some time. WheatKing (1338) - Phnom Penh, CAMBODIA - JAN 3, 2014
Bottle. Pours hazy copper, off-white head. Nose is EKG, mineral water, lemon... Sprite? Flavour is slight lemon, biscuit, berry. Tinny, thin. Tessic (1178) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2013
This ale poured a deep amber colour with a big, beautiful off white head. To the nose there are scents of caramel, spice, light grass and basement. First sip had med/low carbonation with flavours of caramel, hay, resin hop flavor and a little smoke. Finish is med bitter with roasty malt flavor lingering.

Single bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clean amber colour, deeper than average with a frothy warm cap, great retention and thick-creamy lacing. Hoppy nose with the grass, over cereal grains, butterscotch and orange notes. The taste is similar with the sweetness of caramel and the decent bitterness from the hop. A grainy background. Seems like an alright British-style session brew, but their seems to be these hints of adjuncts (plastic, sourness) messing things up. Raistlin (426) - London, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2013
Had high hopes for this beer. Unfortunetely, they were not answered. It was way too hoppy and herby. It head a weak head, and terrible earthy taste. Once i let it breathe a little bit, it was somewhat better but still not great at all. jksipa (995) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 8, 2013
500ml Bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clear deep orange with a small off white head that clings to the glass. Nose is light citrus and bread. Quite sweet to start with an orange/tangerine tang and a quite modest bitterness at the back end. Flavour is quite subdued and delicate. Medium slick mouthfeel with lively carbonation. kevinsenn (2245) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle from LCBO. Pours clear orange with a foamy off-white head. Toasty, fruity, and slightly acidic aroma. Taste is sour and bready, and a little yoghurty; I do wonder if it’s gone off. Light bitter finish. Smooth body. TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2013
500 ml bottle. Rusty orange in colour with a small brown head. Brown sugar joins earthy and herbal hops in the nose. No doubting the style of this one. The flavour is a little sweet up front, but smooths out into a slightly bitter finish. London Pride-ish. Not an ESB, certainly. Well constructed and enjoyable session ale.
