A: Bronze with an off-white head, light retention, good lace.

S: Orange-rind, marmalade, toffee, light fruitiness (tropical & pear).

Thanks Jer & Karen!

sweet malt , and a little fryed onion rings, a nice portion of hops bite as well, this beer is primarily a sweet beer, but very refreshing,

Crystal clear amber colour with a thick, fluffy off-white head. Decent retention and nice lacing.

Thick, caramel aroma with mild fruit. Definitely a malty EPA but still decent.

Rich, malty caramel flavour with rounded soft fruit esters. Moderate bitterness. Quite easy drinking.

Medium body with moderately-low carbonation. Good.

A soft, simple English ale with a lot of caramel malt. Not bad.

Amber body nice thick white head.

Very malty aroma, caramel and ginger cake.

Taste is sweet and well balanced hop notes combined with a crunchy maltiness.

Toffee start the flavours then the hops kick in bringing up floral notes and pepper hints.

Nice chewy mouthfeel and great carbonation.

decent enough EPA for when you feel like something slightly sweet

Pours a deep amber with an off-white head that leaves beads of lacing down the glass.

Aroma is malty, with bitter hops, rhubarb, apples, and a biscuity finish.
Taste is malty, followed by a banana and apple sort of taste, then a little biscuity flick before a bitter hoppy finish kicks in.

Mouthfeel is good, goes down pretty well.

500 mL bottle poured into a pint glass. I've tried this on 3 different formats now--cask, can and bottle. All are interesting, not sure which is my favorite.

A: light brown ale with great clarity and a 2-finger off-white foamy head.

S: lots of mash and malts, less sweet than some

T: mostly bitter and earthy with some light hints of sweetness

M: moderate carbonation and body

D: definitely would drink again

Appearance- Pours a light copper brown with a half finger width of creamy white head. Leaves nice lacing around the glass.

Smell- Grass, citrus (orange/lemon), sweet malts, touch of leafy hops

Taste- Same as the aroma: Sweet malts, grass, and citrus and light leafy hops. Also, there is a slight nuttiness.

Mouthfeel- Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Mouthfeel has a little creaminess to it.

Overall- A tasty and easy drinking EPA by Badger. There is a good balance between sweet and bitter flavours. I enjoyed the creamy body. Definitely a "furst quencher".

500ml bottle, a new arrival to Alberta's already British-heavy beer shelves. Definitely a talking point of a name on this one - cute ferret/beer theme, and a play on the North American perception of certain English enunciation, I fink.

This beer pours a crystal clear, medium-light golden amber hue, with two fingers of bubbling foamy ecru head, which leaves a thoroughly consistent, and rather attractive, pattern of dense cobweb lace around the glass as it evenly subsides.

It smells of sweet biscuity malt, some middling drupe fruitiness, and somewhat bitter floral, leafy hops. The taste is sharp biscuit, somewhat husky and grainy malt, more fruitiness, but this time with a dull citrus twinge, and feebly bitter, kind of ashy, green leafy hops.

The bubbles are fairly sedate, but adequate to their task, the body medium light in weight, and a bit too raspy in its smoothness. It finishes on a nicely balanced note, low and safe, as the malt retains its biscuity graininess, and the hops are just the right frequency to keep things mellow.

A decent enough pale ale, English-style, which of course means reserved, drinkable, and well, more drinkable, without any further blathering about the damned beer. Maybe I get it, maybe I don't.
