Pours a rustic, burnt orange sorta colour with a short lived fizzy white head. The aroma is like a light roasty sorta smell at first, with some creamy sorta wurthers toffee notes, maybe some sherry?? The flavour has a very solid malt foundation for a sort of tangy hop house, if that makes any sense. No one thing really stands out to me, it’s all just very well rounded and balanced. A good session ale. Props grand river.

decent drinking amber ale, this brewery has a very similar malt profile in a lot of thier brews, which is a good one, nice biscuity aftertaste, but i feel like this is a smaller version of the jubilation almost. decent drinker, nice session brew for sure with a decent hop profile to it.

A great amber ale. Starts off caramelly-sweet like a british ale, but ends off with a nice bitter hop finish. Will definitely get this again.

Bottle. Attractive deep scarlet appearance. Highly invigorating aromas of cherry, creamy malt and melon. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel, and a pleasant fruity flavour that leads to a chalky bitter finish. An awesome British-style draft ale captured in a bottle.

RC8 (305) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 25, 2011
On tap at Augusta’s Winking Judge in Hamilton. Didn’t know what to expect, but was pleasantly surprised to see this is more of an IPA than anything else (nowadays at least). Pale with a rather extreme but balanced hop aftertaste, floral and interesting. A bit of sweetness fairly hard to perceive but which must be keeping the bitterness enjoyable is there somewhere. Brilliant beer.

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2011
Sample at Volo IPA Challenge. Pours a deep amber with a large off-white head that recedes eventually to a ring. Aroma is slightly sweet, good floral hop notes. Taste is much the same but with a good malt back and a pleasingly bitter finish. Solid and well crafted.

Zenwolf (269) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 30, 2010
Bottle. One of my favorite of the GRB beers. Light copper pour with a very strong head. Beautiful punchy malt and hops. The newer recpie is a little less punchy, but darn good nontheless. Well balanced, realtively complex.. but very east to drink. Well done Rob!

3.3
presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 31, 2010
Bottle. Copper amber with a fair head. Strong vanilla scent mixed with wood and hints of aluminum. Big body. A touch syrupy. Flavour start and middle seem nondescript. Nice peppery hop finish and lingering bitterness make for a nice drinkable beer. Take out the vanilla and metallic note and we have a winner.

Elkas (213) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2010
500ml bottle from the brewery. Pours a dark amber with a thick white head. Bready aroma, with some grassy hops as well. Flavour is rich and malty, with a nice hop bitterness in the finish. One of my favorite beers.

jimmay (807) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 12, 2010
On tap at brewery. Pours copper in colour, decent creamy head. Mild hoppy aroma, nicely balanced malt and hop taste. Bitter finish. Almost a Pale Ale. Quite good!
