Tasted at Craft cellars in Calgary. Nice balance of bitterness and caramel. Enjoyed

Hazy brown colour with a foamy white head. Caramel notes in the aroma and taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber with the big brown label. Has a very fine head of antique white, carbonated gold body with hints of brown. Good hop aroma, mentions of malts, some odd fragrance on the back end that I can’t place, like air freshener or dish soap (no it ain’t the glass, I only use water to rinse out the ol’ beer glass). Flavour is a well balanced sharp graham cracker with a dry finish. Well made, not too exciting but good to have a few gallons on a saturday night while watching hockey (if you can stomach the all-Florida playoffs or whatevers).

Bottle. Sweet bread and caramel aroma. Pours cloudy bronze with large frothy head. Sweet caramel flavour with some balancing citrus hops. Medium body. Balance finish.

On tap. Pours a clear golden-brown with a medium, frothy, long lasting beige head that laces. Light aroma of bready malt, nuts and a hint of chocolate. Sweet malty flavour of bread, nuts, caramel and a hint of chocolate with a dry, bitter grassy, hoppy finish. Light body with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. Ok.

was light and easy, it tasted a bit musty like old library books but was actually was very good. A good alternative name for this beer would be the "sexy Librarian". A very unexpectedly nice beer.

bulldogops (2740) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 23, 2015
Rating #1459 - 08.02.2015 - Bottle from @oakandvine Clear amber/rousse pour with a frothy, thick white foam with very good retention. Smell is sweet caramel malts, a little grainy. Taste is mild earthy, spicy hops, caramel malts, and a bit of sticky sweetness with that crisp, bitter finish. A decent English style pale ale, but a style that doesn’t play well here.

3.5
TimE (6175) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 19, 2015
nice woody character with decent fruitiness. Very drinkable and approachable. Moderate bitter finish.

2.8
RhetoricalAns (973) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 2, 2015
650 mL bottle. Murky brown amber pour, thin to medium tan head, doesn’t last long. Aroma of cereal grains, malt, some herbal hops. Fairly flat body, medium heaviness but lacking much carbonation. Taste is somewhat muted, mildly bitter.

3.4
Oldschool_Mike (368) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 12, 2015
Bottle into Pint glass. Pours a cloudy golden brown colour. Aroma is stone fruit and nutty. Taste is stone fruit and nutty earthiness. Decent beer.
