rosenbergh (11289) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 21, 2016
473 ml can. Canned on 19/09/16. (Sleeping Giant Brewing Co) Thunder Bay, ON. Clear bright orange color with a tiny grayish white head. Grainy malt, mild floral hops, dryness and some sugary sweetness in the aroma. The flavor is dry grainy malt, dry grassy hops, strong bitterness and some starch. Quite alright. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Crockett (1115) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2016
Pours a murky amber with a short soapy white head. Nose of sweet toasted bread, butter tarts, and cereal grains. Notes of yeast. The beer is pretty sweet even while very cold. Lots of grainy sweetness, raisin, apple, modest grassy hop. Full syrup-like mouthfeel. It’s heavy and sweet malt laden. Plenty of unfermented sugars, and brewer’s caramel. Notes of toasted nut, chocolate. A bit of rubbing alcohol through the sweet dumpy finish. This isn’t very good. It seems like it’s a Samuel Smith’s Winter Welcome.. that isn’t done very well.

Spab (3628) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2016
473 ml can from Toronto Loblaws. Pours a clear orange colour with good-sized cream-coloured head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is fruity with crusty bread, caramel and some earthy character. Flavour has musty tree fruit, gently toasty bread, caramel and a strong earthiness. Slick mouthfeel. Carbonation on the livlier side. Solid.

Johnsense (1531) - - NOV 11, 2016
Clear amber pour, good sized white head. Resinous british hop aroma and taste, slightly metallic, grassy, caramel, toast, orange. Slight burnt note adds a unique dimension to this one in both aroma and taste. Medium body with lively carbonation. Pair with fish and chips (with malt vinegar naturally) or crackers and corn relish.

Freaky_tiki (1168) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2016
Can from loblaws. Pale ale on the can; amber ale on this site; the truth stubles somewhere in the middle (bit more on the amber side). Better than expected. Big flavour of grassy hops, sweet burnt malts, over cooked cereals & wooden after taste. Nice prickly mouthfeel. I’d aim to cut the sugars & mod the malt bill a bit but it’s a decent mid to late session brew.

jamestulloch (3865) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 27, 2016
Can from LCBO. Hazy amber body with a medium off-white head. Lively carbonation. Faint lacing. Aroma of toffee, dried grass and marmalade. Flavour of candy, white sugar and oranges. Thin body with a watery texture. Soft fizz. Light and easy to drink.

cfrancis (3316) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2016
Pours cloudy dark gold with a big frothy off white top. Aroma is sweet caramel malts with light pine hops. Taste is sweet, too sweet for me. Light hop bitterness.

Flavour is light+ sweet toffee with a lighter bitterness and a hint of pepper. Mouth is medium- and sticky with average carbonation and a lightly bitter finish. 7/3+/7-/3/13
