Pours a nut brown and ruby colour with a frothy beige head that hangs on as a thin collar and leaves some heavy lace behind.

Logger has a woody and nutty smell, with a solid whiff of lager yeast, dark fruit and cocoa accents and a light toastiness.

The taste of Logger really shows its lagered roots with a crisp bite. Ripe fruit, chocolate
and wood flavours are present and a fairly strong bitterness is found in the finish.

The mouthfeel is typically thin and yeast creates a tangy sensation on the tongue. Aftertaste is mildly syrupy with lingering fruit and chocolate notes.

This Pennsylvania style variation on the American porter Is very unique and very drinkable.

On tap at Play Wine bar Ottawa for $6

Appearance - Clear amber/brown colour with an average size off white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 2-3 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, caramel, light hops, grass/herbal

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, caramel, and hops. There is also some grassy notes. It ends with a mildly bitter earthy caramel aftertaste.

Overall - Not what I was expecting when I ordered a Porter. More like a ESB but I see from other reviews this is a different style of porter. A decent sessionable easy drinking beer with just enough flavour to keep it interesting.

Half pint at The Black Tomato. From notes.

A - Poured amberish in colour. Bright. One finger of creamy off white head came out. Nice rings of lace coated the glass and a good film of retention was there.

S - Caramel, nutty. Nice and subtle.

T - Bready, caramel, nutty, some cola, a nice non-artificial sweetness.

M - Nice carbonation, medium body, sweet finish then leads to some dryness.

O/D - Nice and sessionable. I'd probably reach for this in the Winter a few more times. Not great, but good.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours a rich, medium caramel brown with about a finger's worth of white head. Head recedes slowly to a soapy film on top with more carbonation visible slowly rising to replenish and maintain the cap.

S: Subtle tones of caramel with a little bit of wood and nuts. Quite understated but what's there is nicely appealing.

T: Taste follows the nose. Caramel, roasted nuts, some grain and bread notes towards the lighter end of the flavour spectrum. Hops balance nicely, adding a pleasant level of bitter and some grassy overtones that rounds things out nicely.

M: Substantial yet refreshing. There's substance to it but it remains light on the tongue with a pleasant silky smooth character.

O: A solid entry overall. Nothing earthshattering here, but definitely a pleasant experience. I would definitely buy this again when next they brew it. Definitely a beer I could stand to have several of in a session.
