Tessic (1153) - Brantford, Ontario, - OCT 8, 2012
This Pale ale poured a medium amber colour with a big, frothy, very light tan head. To the nose there are scents of bread, grassy hops and cream. First sip had a deliciously creamy mouthfeel with flavours of caramel and grassy hops. Finish was lightly bitter with hay flavours lingering.

Manslow (1649) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 23, 2017
Butelka 0,341l nabyta na 3 ŚGB w Tychach. Kolor ciemny, bursztynowy, klarowny. piana znika pozostawiając małą obrączkę na szkle. Aromat jęczmienia i ziemi. W smaku słodowe, trochę owoców. Na finiszu wytrawne. Trochę nie mój styl ale bardzo poprawne.

Stoned99 (1553) - St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 4, 2016
Sample from bottle as part of autumn big clean up. Aroma: strong caramel, molasses and nuts. Pale Ale? App: clear copper, small white head leaving bubbly lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, lots of caramel, moderate carbonation, moderate high sweetness, sweet and astringent finish. Overall: not good. This might be a bit old but this is really unpleasant. That sweetness and weird palate is really not interesting.

Bierdimpfe (640) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 4, 2016
Slightly hazy dark amber color with moderate activity. Slightly frothy beige 1 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with moderate legs. Flavors of caramel, lemon, sweet grains, faint herbal and red ale spices. Unpleasant bitterness. Slick medium body with prickly carbonation. Light finish, lingering roasted malts and bitter spices. Not very flavorful, a little stale, lacking some freshness. Overall not very well crafted.

Pours copper with a tan head. Aroma is malty, hoppy. Flavor is overly malty and sweet. Not very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mild on the hops, nice malt profile. Fairly cleanly brewed, but nothing spectacular to say, a very standard pale ale made for the masses. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UDBeernut (2883) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2016
Had on tap at the hotel bar in Stratford, On. Pours a nice deep Amber, off white head with decent retention. Minimal nose. Taste is malt forward, toast, bread, wet grains, mild flowers on the finish. Medium body. Syrupy.

Pretty decent and Anne liked it. Malt dominated. A bit low on hops but English style and true to style. On tap at Yanks.

AleRider78 (1133) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - APR 10, 2016
Poured a coppery amber appearance, sort of reddish hue. The head just went away pretty quickly and has weak lacing. Malty and grainy aromas. Has a pretty good balance of hops and malts in the flavour, with a touch of nutmeg and some spices. Has a bit of a bitter aftertaste. Not too bad.

ChadPoole (478) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2016
Pours dark copper with a decent off white head. Not much of an aroma. Tastes of nuts and carmel but it’s a bit tinny. Not my favorite from Okanagan spring, I prefer their porter.
