hoppy aroma, initial hop bite and flavour, Some creaminess in the mouthfeel as malts kick in,and then notice much carbonationated and wateriness. Citrus. White crown hhead with lace on medium grapefruit colour. Would nlike them to turn up the hops, but not bad for a beer here near the border.

Poured from tap into nonic at the brewpub in st catherines Ontario. Nice amber maple color wi th a thin head. Very malty aroma...like I'm smelling a bag of 2 row...or maris otter more likely. Great malty flavor with a hint of noble hop and a subtle fruitiness...
Super easy drinker and quite percect on this rainy chilly day in May. What I'd expect from a bitter...

Had this on tap at Merchant Ale House in St Catharines. Pours a copper colour with very thin white head. Some mild lacing on the glass. Earthy and floral hops in the nose, could clearly tell this was an English style bitter. Some bready malt compliment it well. Mild bitterness in the flavour. Carbonation was probably too high, though still a nice beer.

The aroma is faint, but I'm getting more hops on the nose than malt.
It was orange/ copper in colour. Kind of cloudy. Small head. Poor head retention. Some lace.
Flavour is fairly balanced, but with a bitter hop finish. Hops are a little grassy, and malt is balancing that with a bit of sweetness.
Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied. Not too gassy, carbonation is just right.
Overall I think this is a good brew, but would be even better if it wasn't served so cold. I'll drink it again.
