500 ml bottle. Pours a dark amber with a large off-white head. Aromas are bread, yeast, caramel, and some licorice. Taste is a nice crisp malt with hints of cereal and caramel. Though there is a touch of sweetness it is well balanced against a light to medium bitter hop profile. Light bodied, low carbonation, and a medium length bitter finish. Reasonably pleasant.

Bottle. Amber colour with off white head. Malty, sweet, caramel aroma. Nutty, sweet, toffee, smoky, a little bitter, though a touch thin. Nice though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours sunburst brown with a one finger mushy cap. Taste is interesting for an amber ale: a broil of malts & hops that may not be as deep as hoped for but that is interesting. Seems almost stuck in the border blur of styles --maybe this a really good bitter? Another salt of the earth offering from these guys.

Hidden_Pooch (518) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Poured a rusted straw colour with a fast disappearing head. Had a interesting aroma of citrus, bread, and grapes. Taste was even more interesting with sweet plum, nuts, and biscuits. Had a light smooth body with low carbonation and a mild bitterness near the end.

Idiosynkrasie (7970) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 6, 2014
500ml bottle. Clear amber colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Slighty grainy aroma, bitter hoppy overtones, inexplicable fruitiness. Taste is moderately bitter hoppy, fruity, a mixture of red berries and yellow stone fruit, nut paring dryness. Not concrete, somehow simply hoppy and malty. New metaphors required.

50 cl bottle, Mulmur, ON, Canada. Dark golden, thick head. Brown sugar-resin aroma. Thick, strong nectarine flavour. Long sweet caramel finish balanced nicely with malt. Better than I thought.

Reddish - and a bit of brown. Earthy aroma with hints of pine. Very earthy, rich, slightly woody, slightly lemony taste. Nice brew.

The taste is nice with a good amount of bitterness and some nice malt flavour as well. Not as full bodied as i would have liked. Or maybe the flavours just aren’t that big. It’s pretty good but I like some of the other grand river stuff better. Probably would try something else in its place

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!
