3.04/5 rDev -16.5%
Purchased at the LCBO for just under $3.00 for a 473ml can. Served at 4deg C in a draught glass
A- Opens well and pours a small head that is gone in 1min. Dark golden color
S- Pretty good. Lots of malt.
T- Bit of a let down. Watery bitter beer. Sorry
M- Not much here.
O- Not so good. Will not buy again. Just a watered down bitter beer that reminds me of a decent English bitter
Sorry but this beer is not worth a match.

3.84/5 rDev +5.5%
A: Copper, filtered, medium low carbonation, little foam with a beige tint.
S: Caramel, red tea, iron, malt.
T: Reminds me of an English brown ale, taste of hard water, dark malted toasty notes, little actual bitterness, some sweet some sour, but these are subdued by the toasty malt. Some orangey citrus when you suck air through it, but this too is subdued.
M: Medium body, somewhat chewy, little to moderate carbonation.
O: Nice to have a craft beer from my University Home town, in an English style. My first English Bitter, but really reminds me of English Browns.

473 ml can purchased as part of wellington's 4 pack from the LCBO. Served cold into a pint glass.
Appearance - rich copper color that is crystal clear Nd topped by a finger of white head. The wispy froth on top doesn't stick around too much before it turns into a very thin layer of foam. A tiny bit of sticky lacing is present.
Smell - nice earthy base with some significant malt presence and a nice whiff of dark fruits just hiding in the background.
Taste - very mildly bitter with some dark fruit and grassy flavours mixed in. Full flavor despite the lower ABV.
Mouthfeel - smooth and full yet fairly light bodied and a medium to high level of carbonation.
Overall - a fine English bitter than isn't jaw dropping but is a very solid selection especially with a limited number of other local options.
