- Greg C. is drinking a Duchesse de Bourgogne by Brouwerij Verhaeghe at King & DufferinBeen a while since I’ve had one & I recall it having more prominent acidity. Still nice, with notes of port, cherry, wood, leather, plum.
- Greg C. is drinking a Whitney's Vintage Ale by The Collingwood Brewery at King & DufferinFresh hops come through in the front but are overshadowed by the sweet malt & honey core of the beer, throwing off the balance. Confusing.
- Greg C. is drinking a The Answer by Pint Pursuits Brewing Co. at King & DufferinClean, crisp, balanced, not complex, but every note of bready malt & herbal hops is right where it should be. An excellent Helles.
- Greg C. is drinking a Lunch Money by Collective Arts Brewing at King & DufferinDescribed as straight-up, easy drinking, balanced. It’s all of those & that’s fine. Also not very memorable. But I guess it does the job.
- Greg C. is drinking an Early Bird Breakfast Barley Wine by Cameron's Brewing Company at King & DufferinBeautiful blend of big and balanced barley wine with strong & sweet coffee. Notes of caramel & candied orange. Hides the booze. Dangerous!
