Coming from the Hinterlands of Ontario’s LCBO domain I’ve only seen the Vintage versions of GL beer, which are exceptional. This is the first regular beer, if seasonal, I’ve had. So...Pint poured in a random Philly airport restaurant. Pours dark amber with finer of fluffy beige head. Smells of hops and caramel malt. Taste caramel malts, bitter malts, some ash on the finish with some lingering bitterness. Generally good beer. In a airport no less. 5 years ago it would all be Bud, MGD and Labatt Blue as the import. we’ve come a long way baby. Don’t worry about this one Tiki.

Pours an amber / orange with a slight off white head. Aroma is nice floral hops with some fruitiness and some sweet malt. Mouth feel is medium, malts are sweet and hops are slightly bitter. I did not get the Pale ale experience on this one but all and all a good drinking beer.

Bottle to sampler cup. Poured a darker yellow with medium head. This supposedly had more IBUs than the "mild winter" but I couldn’t tell. Seemed more mellow to me. It was alright, but another "meh"

poech73 (420) - Braine, BELGIUM - JUL 12, 2017
From my local Carr* market >> Bitter à l’anglaise: ambrée peu maltée et moyennement amère au goût trop prononcé de caramel avec une faible carbonation. La bouche est rêche, l’arrière goût est métallique accompagné d’une saveur maltée légère au goût vague de noisette de pain grillé. Le milieu bouche est une peu épais, gras au palais. Les saveurs fruitées des houblons sont fuyantes. La finale sèche et assoifante, comme si on avait rajouté de la farine de maïs. Plutôt oubliable.

MarkBarnes (419) - Waterville, New York, USA - JAN 23, 2007
Jan. 23, 2007; 12 oz. bottle. This was the only serviceable beer I could find at Chicago’s O’Hare Int’l whle passing through there recently, and I was somewhat surprised to see it turn up on a shelf here in Upstate NY today. Amber color, nice balance with a tasty, candyish malt profile and some slightly spicy & fruity hops. The brewers were really on to something here, but stumbled a bit with the lightness & watery finish.

Deep amber beer with a medium foamy eggshell head. Weak nose of candied nuts, caramel, and toffee, but it’s pretty friggin’ faint. Flavor is mild and watery. I guess there’s some malt there, but it kind of just lays flat on your tongue. It finishes with a bland bitterness. Overall, this beer is pretty tepid. Mouth feel is decent, I guess.

Bière brune de 4.3 % d’alcool. Elle possède un beau col mousseux au versement. Elle possède un odorat amer. Elle possède une amertume en bouche, légèrement salée, avec un goût de limette en finale et restant dans la bouche. Elle est légèrement fade, sans éclat dans les gorgées suivantes, avec une amertume légèrement décroissante en fin de bouche. Correcte !

On tap @ Clybourn: Amber color. Floral aroma. Rich fresh bread and biscuit maltiness, low carbonation. I thought this was a nice, flavorful interpretation.
