cmacklin (1016) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 29, 2016
On tap. Pours a hazy red-amber with a medium, long lasting, beige head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet aroma of grapefruit, pine and caramel malt with a hint of roast. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, bread, light roast, grapefruit, pine and grass with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Not bad.

UXO (1693) - CANADA - DEC 16, 2015
Appearance: clear reddish deep amber with three fingers (and growing) of fluffy light tan head, excellent retention and heavy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: pine, citrus, caramel/toffee, bready yeast. (8/10) Taste: moderate-low sweet, moderate-strong bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate to low carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (3/5) A somewhat strange beer. I was initially intrigued by the hoppy aroma, but ultimately a bit disappointed by the final overall effect. Despite the initial redonkulously enthusiastic head, the carbonation rapidly drops off to low, causing the flavours to fall somewhat flat. The net effect of this is that it smells better than it tastes. Still, pretty interesting for a red ale. (15/20)

VertBaconStrips (2371) - Blerkablerka, VENEZUELA - OCT 31, 2015
Went straight out of the fridge and needed to wait as I wasnt overly thrilled. My nostrils are working a bit hard to hit this up - darker caramel, piles of sweet, perfume, Contact C, grapefruit, toffee. The taste is decent but I go in and out of liking it, being curious and thinking about whats next in my glass. Plenty of hops add flavour and a notable bitterness that is dry. Pine, thick caramel, grapefruit, underlying sweetness. There is something interesting about this beer maybe its the combo of too much pine and a thick deeper caramel but the taste is fairly simple which isnt a terrible thing. I should really like this but not today. Its a hey, this is pretty good thing and seconds later not giving a fuck.
