COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Based on beer recipes developed in the 1800s by traditional English brewers, this ale is well balanced with caramel malts and English hops. Historical records exist showing the importation of Fuggle and Golding hops to Upper Canada in the early 1800s, in fact it was well known for American invaders to demand food and beer from homesteads they occupied. Formerly known as Butler’s Bitter.

shaynsawchuk (713) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2014
650 mL bottle. Pours amber with a cap of off white foam. Black tea, dark bready notes, a hint of coffee and amber caramel on the nose. Balanced on the dry side, with a lightly lingering bitter finish. Light to moderate body with moderate carbonation, finishes clean. Authentic tasting and sessionable.

Pours a nice amber with a nice froathy, slightly off white head that leaves behind foamy lacing. The Aroma is a little weak, a cardboard malty extract note is all I can really get. The flavour is a straight forward, simple caramel malt kind of profile, seems very English to me. Certainly nothing new and exciting going on here, but it’s solid, does what it should, nothing offensive about it. I could drink a sixer of these with a friend for sure.

Strangebrewer (1345) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2014
bottle. Poured clear deep amber with a thin off-white head. Sweet malty aroma a touch earthy. Medium body, creamy with a tart bitter end. Caramel malt flavour with a spicy note and some tart citrus hops.

czar (9430) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
pours unclear golden orange, amber-ish, with a small white cap, some retention and lacing. nutty and fruity caramel, very fruity - small red and yellow fruits, grassy, peppery, hint of licorice and other belgian-esque spices - imparted by yeast and not added spices - beautiful spicy esters in fact. moderate carbonation, light body - nice texture, balanced grassy-earthy-spicy finish - very nice mouthfeel. solid bitter - bomber for myself. much enjoyed!

Lubiere (14151) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 1, 2013
An amber ale with a thin lacing mocha head. In aroma, a nice nutty caramel malt with light grassy hops, faint herbal odors, OK. In mouth, a nice nutty caramel malt with grassy hops, rye bread, not bad.

Freaky_tiki (1359) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2013
Pours maple syrup dark with a one finger cap that fades quickly. First few sips are a bit of a surprise -- is something wrong here? There’s something assertively vegetal happening here, almost like they brewed this with cabbage or something. Oh my. Disappointing.

Bottle - Toasted sweet malts and grains. Clear copper with a rich beige head. Caramel malts with a nice slightly bitter finish. Very nice session bitter.

Eructoblaster (4391) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2013
Bottle - 650ml. Amber body with a thin off-white frothy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar and woody hints. Taste is slightly dominated by malty flavors. It carries oaky, hoppy, and grainy notes. Ends with a decent bitter finish. Average Bitter.

3.3
blankboy (7808) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2013
Bottle at ’Golden Tap Awards 2013’, beerbistro.. Pours a nice looking deep orange-ruby with a small diminishing frothy white head. Aroma of fruit and malt along with grapes and light hops. Slightly watery, but still good, flavour of fruit, sweet caramel malt, light hops and a light bitter finish. Average bodied. Pretty good.
