Bottle. Half hazy brown orange body with a white head. The aroma is malty. The taste is slightly sour and very balanced.

Pours burnt orange with an off white head that laces the glass. Aroma of malts, caramel and bread. Taste of sweet caramel malts, and a balanced bitter/sour finish. Great beer.

MarkoR (959) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2014
500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a orangy colour with nice white head. Aroma is fruity, malty caramel. Pretty decent for this style of beer.

HippyHop (611) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
Expiry date on the bottle is November 30th, 2014. I bought it at the LCBO on December 3rd, 2014. Nice stock rotation LCBO! That being said this stuff doesnt seem to have suffered much. Pour is light burnt orange with two fingers of creamy off-white cap. Solid retention, good lacing. Nose is all malt (shocking) with lots of caramel, toasted grain/bread. Taste is a surprisingly sturdy toasty caramel malt with a slightly bitter earthy finish. I didnt encounter any yoghurt, but I did encounter a bit of that lovely Steamwhistle Blood Mouth effect that my buddy Tiki mentions. In my case it was pretty faint. Serviceable bitter, all around.

beautiful English pale. The story here is malts, in abundance that are incredible for the ABV. Toasty and flavorful.

lesifflebiere (1788) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 2, 2014
Bire orange, cristalline de par sa parfaite limpidit, et semblant mi-mince. Nez en houblons doux et fruits, et en malts caramel. La bouche est savoureuse et ronde mais sans tre rellement complexe ; la buvabilit est haute, et si la signature est assez classique, elle est diablement efficace et bien effectue. Saveurs de fruits tropicaux, de sucre dorge, et compltes par une petite amertume. Pour un breuvage qui ne ressort pas tellement du lot, Durham peut se vanter davoir perfectionn le style.

bunget (917) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear copper body, small beige head with good retention. A sweet malty British aroma: caramel, malt, honey, plums and apricots, bread. Taste is somehow bolder: caramel malt, a decent amount of herbal hops, a little resinous and sour notes. Very decent.

Freaky_tiki (1167) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2014
Pours tall & sassy in the glass, with a lush one finger cap. First sip brings me a whole bunch of confusion: beneath the rich malts & middle of the road hopping theres an ugly sour blemish (a reviewer below me accurately describes it as yogurt-like) . Dig deeper & theres also a slightly coppery twang in the after taste that reminds me of Steam Whistles blood in the mouth problem. Thats two strikes. Fix these two flaws & we may have something. A great looking pour, but as we all learn at the bar - looks can be deceiving. In fact, if you read the last ten or so reviews, there is a consistant complaint of something being off. Bad batch alert.

shaynsawchuk (681) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2014
500 mL bottle. Pours copper pipe with a thick white head that dissipates. Nice British style caramel malt, butter toffee, black tea, cedar and herb. Lightly sweet with enough bitterness to balance it out. Light to moderate body, moderate carbonation and somewhat creamy palate. Seems very fresh. Super sessionable.

Bendrixian (1514) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2014
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 isnt 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.
