1.9/5 rDev -47.2%
Pour presents a super murky brown colored ale with a finger of white head.
Aroma is a musty, nondescript wash of earthy notes, and a noticeable presence of skunk from age and light.
The flavors are bland, just a dirty mesh of earthy mess.
The mouthfeel has little to no carbination.
This one is not worth me drinking really, and i do not think it will.

A: Orange - amber hue color, with a constant layer of littles bubbles on top with medium to low carbonation and a 4 fingers head that dissipates slowly with small white bubbles. Not totally translucent, light can pass throw even it is not very bright it looks nice.
S: The smell is really sweet almost like caramel or honey, very intense but not to malty or barley, even it is nice some gains were expected and at least some hops in the aroma.
T: Very tasty goo flavor, complex with a nice combination between sweetness and bitterness a difference from smell you can feel some cereal barley tasting and some hops and again the honey sweetness for a balanced and pleasant combination.
M: The ending is really good, lasting for enough time, leaving a dry sensation on the throat.
D: Complex and at the same time not really easy to drink.

4.05/5 rDev +12.5%
A: A beautiful medium brown. Clear, with a nice just off white head on top.
S: Sweet caramel right away. A bit of maple syrup and a hint of hops in the finish.
T: Definitely focused on the malt on this. Caramel and toasted notes take over the flavor here with a slight bitterness in the finish. There is a slight floral note in the finish.
M: The carbonation definitely seems very alive, although it is not heavily carbonated. It delivers a quick blast of bubbles, then settles down into a clean and medium bodied brew.
T: Very nice. subtle and easy going. A simple and enjoyable beer.

A- A thick brown color mixed with hop orange. Good carbonation, nice head, and great lacing.
S- Floral hops and a bit of breadiness. Rather faint. Some undistinguishable fruit as well.
T- A lot of fruit flavor. Notes of apple, pear, and I want to say raisin. Somewhat light taste. A bit of a caramel sweetness.
M- A little under medium body. Creamy and smooth as well. Carbonation fits it perfectly
D- Easy to down, and a pretty good choice for people into fully natural beer. I didn't mind this, but wasn't blown away.

Pours a golden amber with a foamy off-white head that laces well. The aroma's very subdued, picking up faint hints of grain and floral hops. Caramel malt becomes more apparent in the nose as it warms. The flavour is predominantly caramel/biscuity malt and a slightly bitter finish from the floral hops. The mouthfeel is alot crisper and less creamy than I expected, but is altogether quite enjoyable.

500ml bottle poured into a pint glass
Appearance - The beer pours a hazy amber colour with a lot of carbonation showing. There is a nice size foamy and frothy beige colour head. There is some faint lacing, and the head lasts for a few minutes before it's gone.
Smell - I can smell some toasted malts, some caramel notes, and some hops.
Taste & Mouth - The beer has a nice mouth feel, the carbonation seems to be just about perfect. I can taste the hops and then the malts, then they both give way to a caramel sweetness that lasts until the finish. And the aftertaste is slight bitter and sweet. However it seems like the beer needs to be kicked up a notch. It is missing a nice medium or full bodied taste. It comes across as slightly tasteless and watery.
Drink - The beer could be promising with a few adjustments. It lacks severely in the flavour department.

I've seen this on the LCBO shelves for a bit now and finally decided to pick one up as it sounded interesting. Pours a golden colour that starts with fluffy white head that quickly dissipated. Smells of faint floral hops with some earthiness to it. Taste has a very mild bitterness, much less than expected. Little bit of hops and bread in the flavour. Not a bad beer, but not worth the price it is in Ontario when you can get Fuller's for cheaper.
