DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 19, 2009

Spab (3662) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2009
330 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear orange gold with small white head. Grains prominent in the nose. Taste is somewhat grainy, sweet with a hint of nuttiness. Finish is somewhat crisp and somewhat unpleasant. Not one I was enamoured with.

hopscotch (10983) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2009
Bottle... Cloudy amber lager with tons of large, dark floaties lying on the bottom and floating around the inside of my glass. Mid-sized, creamy, white head. Good retention. Malty, chestnut nose very faint. Light to medium-bodied with bubbly carbonation. Moderately sweet, nutty and minerally balanced fairly well by mild bitterness. Crisp, mostly clean finish.

Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2009
330ml Bottle: Pours brown, similar to the colour of the bottle, pretty nice topping of foamy white head. Quite an awful aroma, actually: Skunky, sour fruit, nuts, some sweet malts, and alcohol. Thankfully, the flavour is a bit nicer than the aroma. The chestnuts are definitely there, sweet and malty, toffee, and a bit of off-putting grains. Its all wrapped around an unwanted level of alcohol.

DerWeg (1628) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2009
Initial gassy macro taste that settles into some malty warmth. Looks decent. Aroma is skunk and weird alcohol note. Taste is green grassy hops and kind of grainy malts with some added rich sweet notes. Basically seems like a somewhat flawed beer that I wont expose my liver to. Drain pour at least on on this day.

Sammy (11820) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2009
LCBO; pours pale yellow, fast disapearing white head. Neutral aroma. Drinkable, though not tasty still not offensive, some malts there. Passable European, but I did not finish it. Average mouthfeel.

Papillon (400) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2009
330 mL Bottle. Deep gold body with a bubbly white head that settles to a tenacious layer lacing the sides of the glass. Aroma is sweet malt, grains, a nuttiness about it, and a note of floral. Sweet grains dominate in the flavor with a syrupy-nutty character about it, a sharpness about it, and a mild fruity-nutty finish. There is something else in the flavor and finish: phenolic? No, I cant quite describe it; its more like leather. Maybe its from the chestnuts. This beer is definitely an acquired taste. Brownie points for originality.

mabel (8735) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2009
[2024-20090301] 330mL bottle. Not a lot of aroma, just some sweet grains and mild plastic. Clear, golden amber body with a quick bubbly white head. Sweet grains continues in the flavour with some mild sweet fruity background. Medium body. Fair.
