3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance was a clear golden color with about 2 finger white head poured in a pilsner glass. Aroma was medium hoppiness of the earthy variety. Taste is light and refreshing with your typical pale ale hops. Nothing really to say except a nice pale ale.

Tall cans are a bit much for this type of beer, 2 had me well past halfway there! Has all the bitter/aroma hop balance you’d expect in a pale but with a managable finish to keep it sessionable. Nice colour and consistant through the 4/5 places I had it .

355ml can from Tesco.
Medium sized white head disappears quickly, good lacing. Clear amber body. Nose is resin, pine, caramel. Flavour is caramel, resin, grapefruit. Good bitterness on the aftertaste. Medium carbonation, spiky mouthfeel, nice little bit of chew. Very good.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours clear copper colour with at least 3 finger tall off white head. Aromas of citrus and woody hops with some pine deep down in the glass. Flavour is mildly piny, light malt and a good amount of hop bitterness. The malt has a short finish with the hops going much longer.Medium bodied and very soft feeling on the tongue.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml can. "Canned on 10/03/16". Purchased 01/06/17. A classic LCBO two month wait before seeing a shelf may have affected the freshness of the hops, but it’s decent. Pours clear and the colour of honey with a creamy light beige cap. On the nose, British-like caramel malt profile, resinous hops, pineapple, and heavy mineral notes. Taste wise, crisp hard water, caramel malts, light citrus, and metallic hops into more mineral crispness, resinous notes, and citrus pith in the finish. I would LOVE to try this fresh because it almost comes across as a Fuller’s London Pride/American Pale Ale hybrid, and as a fan of both styles I mean that very much as a compliment. Here’s to Ontario’s 100 year old liquor laws! Huzzah!

It pours copper with amber highlights; the head is off white and foamy. The aroma has notes of: toffee, grapefruit zest, mango, and cereal. The taste is lightly bitter. The palate is light bodied with medium carbonation, and has a short finish. Overall, it’s meh.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Âmbar escuro de leve turbidez, espuma bege de media formação e persistência. Aroma tendendo ao caramelo, leve amadeirado, nada extraordinário como esperava. Paladar de leve dulçor e amargor. Corpo leve média carbonatação. Final de leve/média persistência, tem um tom amadeirado. Boa mas não correspondeu à nota do RB.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
6.5%ABV. Pale Ale.
Poured out amber. 12°SRM.
Nose is malty sweet, orange maybe a hint of pine.
Mouthfeel is soapy. Palate has toasted malt with toasted grahams, honey on wheat toast, barley or multigrain toast. Hops are bitter melon, deep heavy grapefruit peel, resinous, sappy.
Finish is long with a pronounced back of the tongue lingering bitter.
Overall a big big hoppy ale, whose ginormous grain bill will largely go unnoticed. It’s really what allows you to really appreciate all of that hoppy complexity.
