- Greg C. is drinking a Sleeping Giant by Amsterdam Brewing Company (Canada) at King & DufferinBottled Aug 2012. Mild oxidization, fig & raisin, toffee, vanilla, leather, slight sour tang. A bit past its prime I reckon, but still good.
- Greg C. is drinking a July by Burdock at King & DufferinCommercial description sums it up well. Very clean, some stonefruit sweetness up front, dry clove character in finish. Simple & good.
- Greg C. is drinking a Rhizome: Azacca/Ekuanot by Folly Brewpub at King & DufferinCarbonation seems lighter than it should be. Flavour has nice pineapple character, but is muddled, especially the finish. Not their best.
- Greg C. is drinking a Big Rock American Pale Ale by Big Rock Brewery at Liberty Commons at Big Rock BreweryDecent take on the style, well balanced and pleasant, good level of hops on the back of the palate. Not distinctive but perfectly alright.
- Greg C. is drinking a La Fin du Monde by Unibroue at King & Dufferin7.5 year old bottle. Obvious oxidization - low carbonation, quite sweet & slightly musty, lacks usual spiciness. But still very enjoyable.
