500 mL bottle. Pours walnut with a nice white head and soapy lacing. Aromas of butter toffee, biscuit, fig, mixed nuts and bread. A hint of sweetness well balanced by bittering hop and a touch of earthy floral notes. Medium body and low to moderate carbonation. Well made and well enjoyed; would complement a meal.

Bottle [500ml]. Pours a hazy, bubbly golden-orange with an average size frothy off-white head. Aroma of bready caramel malt, floral hops, toffee, earthy notes and some fruit. Flavour follows the aroma, slightly sweet and bready, light floral hops and a moderate bitter finish. Average bodied. Textbook English-style, pretty good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lots of malt with some tangy hops. Definitely an English style beer, and not a bad one and that. Creamy and very drinkable on the hottest day of the year.

Bottle from the LCBO. Moderately turbid body with a reddish-gold hue and a small white head. Aroma is pretty much textbook UK pale ale - biscuit, toffee, earthy tones, and subtle floral hops. Body is soft and lightly carbonated. Flavour starts with nice honey-toffee notes, followed some nutty earthiness in the middle, and a nicely bittered finish with a lingering, mineral-like dryness. Didnt impress me much at first, but by the end of the glass, I really enjoyed it!

probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2013
500 ml bottle from the LCBO, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Hazy deep amber with a so-so white head. Aroma: Very British with lots of earthy notes, dry toffee, faint raisins/dark dried fruits, fairly floral, alright. Palate: Medium body, relaxed effervescence. Flav.: Slightly sweeter, friendlier caramel/toffee, still fairly earthy and floral, appropriate, just not what I like; dry with fair bitterness and an earthy caramel/toffee and lightly floral finish.

Well-made. Not for me.

It pours amber with a slight brownish tint; the head is bone and foamy. The aroma has notes of: roasted grains, toast, burnt toffee, and wet grass. The taste is light bitter that finishes medium bitter; there are notes of: toast, pine, biscuit, and a grassy note. The palate is medium bodied, light-medium carbonation, and a long bitter finish. Overall, very light in profile - Renaissance has the quirk of making beers that smell way better than they taste.

HogTownHarry (6563) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2013
500ml bottle from LCBO. Looks nice - fairly clear orange-amber with a large-ish frothy beige head. Smells like a light biscuity bitter with some floral/acidic bittering - ehh. Taste follows, maybe a bit of orange peel, definitely a bit wort-y. Light slick mouthfeel, weakly carbonated, quick malty floral finish, no aftertaste. Ehhh.

solidfunk (8575) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 15, 2013
Mostly malt in the aroma but a little hops. Pours cloudy orange with ok lacing and some head. Pretty explosive initial carbonation, but it ends up being pretty flat. Finishes sour with a bite of tinny astringency. Pretty boring import for the lcbo.

hangunder (305) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2013
Malty, sweet, bready aroma. Hazy dark brown with a big, long lasting head. Looks nice. Pretty interesting beer, starts off with some herbal/resiny notes, ends with a faint sweetness on the tongue and a lingering bitterness. Very carbonated, medium bodied. Not overly refreshing or amazing, but still good.

Spab (3663) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2013
500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a murky copper colour with large, lasting off-white head that leaves some lace. Aroma is toffee, biscuit, hints of fruit and some flowers. Flavour is biscuity, toffeish malt, modest citric fruitiness with a nice floral hoppiness towards the end as well as some spicy and minerally character. Lively carbonation. Quite nice.
