On tap at the brewery. Easy to drink.. Was the best of the five sampled, but that’s not saying much. Was definitely the only one of the five that I would pay to drink again. PatIrish (183) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle, amber, not a lot of head retention. Aroma is grassy, floral, I suppose some toaster malt. Very spritzy on the palate, towards that oft describes soft mouth feel. Okay.

This is one of my favorites. This pours a beautiful copper color with a modest head and nice lacing. Nice hoppy aroma. Complex palate. Long finish. Delicious.

I poured this from bottle, copper color, med head. Floral smell to it, malty and hoppy, distinct so far to other beers, not sure if I get a coffee taste out of it almost like mocha but distinct nonetheless, this in not bad. Has a bitter ending to it, must be the hops. I like it. Gpnterojd (179) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 25, 2007

Pours deep rusty reddish brown. Auburn? Medium creamy head. Aroma is lush with citrusy hops and chocolate roasted malts. Great balance -- the hops slightly dominate the malts in the aroma, which suits my liking.
Flavour hits with caramel and chocolate before hops quickly become apparent and take over. Bittersweet effect exists. Again, the balance is great. Medium body. .Aftertaste is coffee, smoke/ash and hops. Maybe a little too much sweetness from the malts. This is a great session beer.
from bottle, inviting aroma, a little malt hint of fruit. pleasantly bitter flavour, lingering hoppiness after a few mouthfuls, dry. one to keep in mind if i see it on tap. raiderfost (170) - virginia beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 21, 2008
Thanks fredjaz. Very good beer! Best ive had from canada. Nice hop character. Goes down well. googleimage83 (164) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2017
Syrupy red, clear, frothy. Aroma is sweet and malty, slightly oaky. Taste is fairly malt-forward, caramel and almond, lots of cherry flavour. Hop flavour is pretty restrained for an APA. Pleasant, but a bit weaker than I remember. I prefer a higher hop-to-malt balance, but if you’re the opposite, then this is a good choice. Good intro pale ale, definitely better than nearly any macro product, but not really competitive among the better Ontario breweries. Jan Primus (160) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2007
Pretty much my staple beer here in the Ontario summer...nice hop bite, a bit more malt and less citrus than an ipa but great come home to after a hot day at work, Strange Brew (157) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2003
Mill Street's best, IMO. Creamy, complex flavours, attractive copper colour. Elements of fruits, hops and nuts. Very unique character and thoroughly enjoyable.
