Hacker-Pschorr Münchner Gold

Clear golden color with a clumpy white head. Lots of lace as I swirl the glass gently.
Earthy aroma with a little of the smell of a new mown lawn.
Full, rich creamy mouth feel.
Citrus hops that dry the mouth almost instantly and a taste of postage stamp glue from way back when there was glue on a postage stamp. This is not negative at all because it's not overbearing but just slightly there.
The creaminess stays right to the end unlike some other brews I've had that just dry out the mouth so you have to have another sip. In this case I WANT to have another sip.
I could make a habit of this one.

A dark copper coloured beer with a medium sized but short lived off-white head.
The aroma is biscuit, maple syrup or brown sugar and citrus.
Feel is medium rich, smooth and creamy.
This one is in the American India Pale Ale style but is more subdued in the hop balance than many of the American versions.
There is still a lot of citrus hops but they are built on top of a solid malt base of biscuit and brown sugar tastes. Some grass notes come through and the blend is quite well balanced.
The hops add a very bright feel to the beer and it makes a great summer BBQ drink.

Pours dark copper with a thin white head.
Dough, maple syrup and a hint of citrus make up the aroma.
Nice creamy mouth feel.
Great malt flavor balanced very well by the citrus hop flavor.
Well done.

We are strong supporters of Ontario Craft Brewers. Ask for them at your local LCBO in Ontario or better yet, visit one or all of their breweries. You will be glad you did.

Flying Monkeys Hoptical Illusion

Nice copper, red color with a pure white short lived head.
Seems to be a fair amount of carbonation. I've been to the brewery. This is sure to be natural fizz.
Sweetness and some bitterness are the predominant aromas. Smells like bread, honey and some citrus.
Great mouth feel.
Perfectly balalnced brew. The malt and hops play off each other to make this an exceptional beer.
I like it alot!

Nice gold color with a creamy white head. Lots of lace.
Has a nice aroma. Some fruit and a kind of sweetness.
A hop bite at the start but followed by the sweetness of the malt. Very nicely balanced. I could drink a bunch of these.

Beer Quote of the day

You can do anything with beer that you can do with wine. Beer is great for basting or marinating meat and fish.
