Split at tasting. Roast - almost burnt - malt. Notes of dark roast coffee and cocoa husks. Needs a bit more body but generally well made.

Humalove Brewing by Hammer of Sucellus

Greg C. is drinking a Hammer of Sucellus by Humalove Brewing at The Kay Gardner Beltline Trail

Split at tasting. Smells old & oxidized. Flavour is short and strongly bitter. Not much subtlety or complexity. Not to my taste. Ah well.

Split at tasting. Some age on this, but held up well. Malty, boozy, rum & dark sugar. Warm finish, hit of bitterness. Rough but great.

Wellington Brewery by UVB-76 Roman

Greg C. is drinking an UVB-76 Roman by Wellington Brewery at The Kay Gardner Beltline Trail

Split at tasting. Tons of coffee, cocoa & vanilla. Not as much heat as expected for the abv. A bit too sweet, but that’s a minor quibble.

Whitewater Brewing Co. by Farmer's Daughter

Greg C. is drinking a Farmer's Daughter by Whitewater Brewing Co. at The Kay Gardner Beltline Trail

Split at tasting. Bit old (Sep ‘17) but still a perfectly acceptable blonde ale with good balance. Great lawnmower beer, I’d reckon.

Bellwoods Brewery by Monogamy (Nelson Sauvin)

Greg C. is drinking a Monogamy (Nelson Sauvin) by Bellwoods Brewery at King & Dufferin

Much preferred this on tap at the brewpub. Bottle is less bright and clean, seems like it might have lactose, just generally less enjoyable.

Collective Arts Brewing by Honey & Lavender

Greg C. is drinking a Honey & Lavender by Collective Arts Brewing at King & Dufferin

Clean & simple cider with mild honey sweetness and a lavender note that sits just on the right side of soapy. Not my usual thing, but nice.

Henderson Brewing Co by Zerostomia (Ides of April 2018)

Greg C. is drinking a Zerostomia (Ides of April 2018) by Henderson Brewing Co at King & Dufferin

Feels like a Pils with the volume turned down - lighter body, subtler aroma, softer flavour. Well put together, though, and quite tasty.
