Interesting flavour, It is strong, but the flavour is just hopy, the brown appearance is very nice and good suagr alike foam. THe smell is hopy too, but It is not a bitter. Good beer too. Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 10, 2006
355ml Bottle: My 100th! I wanted to find something worth remembering for #100 and my first taste of Mill St sounded as good as any other. Comes in the cool, environmentally friendly printed bottle so I’m liking it already. Pours nicely with a small-ish head that dropped to a nice lacing; copper body with slight streams of carbonation. Aroma hits hard on floral hops with sweet malts and candyfloss, quite nice. My first taste came in balanced bitter with a cool sweetness - this truly is one of the better balanced ales I’ve tried. Cascade hops abound, they’ve been generous, and a hint of grapefruit nabs you at the end. Complex, balanced, good all around. Here’s to the next 100! emjay (30) - Markham, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2006
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2006 Bottle. Pours a clear orange with a large white head, which disappears quickly but leaves a bit of lacing. The aroma shows that this beer is generous with the malts and hops - lots of floral and citrus cookie. Cookies and spices and oranges in the taste, with a pure grapefruit aftertaste. Lightly carbonated... pretty smooth. Not a bad brew at all. TaktikMTL (7798) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 8, 2006

Via HogTownHarry. The beer pours to a clean dark orange caramelly body with a nice lasting rocky white head and good lacing. The aroma is extremely hoppy and malty. Grapefruit, apricots, oatmeal raisin cookies, light gingerbread. Very nice aroma. The flavor starts out hoppier and finishes extremely malty. Muddled citrus morphs into crystal malt oatmeal raisin cookies. Pretty decent. The palate is decent and middle of the road. Very pleasing alternative APA. Nicely malty!

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2008 bottle: Pours a dark copper with a medium off white head creamy head.
Aroma is almost reminiscent of oatmeal-raisin cookies with a strong fruity hop
Flavour is medium hopped (again fruity) and full bodied.
My first Mill St. brew and it was very nice.

Draught half-pint at Pub Italia in Ontario in the company of the estimable CapFlu. Clear amber with little head and a touch of lacing....light citrus and apricot aroma, hoppy without being overly acidic, nice caramel notes come on strongly as it warms....orangy citric body is faintly acidic, very fruity and lightly tart, moderately bitter and eminently well-constructed with low to medium peppy carbonation. Nothing spectacular but a pleasant summer quaff. diabel (1713) - Aarschot, BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2006
Bottle Clear, amber body. Off-white, large, lasting, creamy head. Intense aroma of hops with some liquor added. Lightly sweet, moderately bitter initial flavour. Heavily bitter, lightly sweet finish. Quite interesting, but has a little bit flawness. Still quite complex. Very soft mouthfeel. LordBeamish (144) - Boozetown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 8, 2006
bottle: Pours a medium, orangish amber colour with a frothy head. An interesting aroma with caramel and nutmeg leading the way. Lot’s of flavours in the mouth, perhaps too many. Caramel, spices, citrus etc.
Finishes slightly bitter followed by a coffee/chocolate aftertaste. I could see this beer becoming an acquired taste but I think there’s too many other great ales out there to give this one too much time.
