Stuart's Natural Session Ale

A golden colour. The head is white but doesn't last long.
The smell is what I think of as "malt". Not sure if I am right or not.
There is some apricot in there as well.

The taste is fairly sweet. Some raisin and apricot flavours. Very smooth and easy to drink.
I like this a lot. Only 3.7% alcohol so I could drink it all night and it really has tastes to it.
A lot of flavour! When I saw it was only 3.7% I thought it would be a nothing beer. I'm glad I gave it a shot.

I'm caching up.

Soon I will catch up to Beerbabe.
I wonder if that is the woman at the top of the site?

Great Lakes Brewing - Canuck Pale Ale

Pours a clear Golden colour with a large, lasting, white head.
Aroma is quite malty and sweet.
Feel is nice and creamy.
Taste is not at all what I was expecting from the name. It is far maltier than I expected and the hop kick is almost all in the finish. There is a sourdough bread type grainy flavour which is most of the taste profile, quite nice and very pronounced, the hop tastes are toward the grapefruit bitterness profile and are definitely there, but they don't seem to jump out at you until you get passed the malt.
The more I sip at this one the more I like it, the blend just seems to work, but it did take a bit of getting used to and the sour malt taste tends to linger quite a bit.
A funny thing about this brew is that if it sits in the glass for a while the order of the tastes seems to reverse. After a while the hop bitterness hit before the malt sour/sweet. And the aroma switched to the grapefruit hop classic pale ale aroma.

I like this one and I can't help wondering what it tastes like from the keg, I suspect that is it's main strength.

Beer Quote of the day

For drink, there was beer which was very strong when not mingled with water, but was agreeable to those who were used to it.
