Amsterdam Brewery - Autumn Hop Harvest Ale - 5.6%alc.

This beer looked good at the store, so I bought 2. The bottle says it is a " 'wet hopped' beer.. has slight bitterness upfront and crisp hop finish." I tried both bottles. The taste is not what I like. It tastes funky, almost sour. Has stray flavours that I am not used to picking up (i swe...

BC Natural Selections 6-pk (BC Craft Brewers Guild)

This 6-pk I picked up at the LCBO. It contained 6 different beers from B.C., and upon inspecting the 6 brews offered, I had only heard of 'Dead Frog Brewery', but not tasted any of them. It was worth a shot! Contents: Vancouver Island Brewery - Sea Dog Amber Ale - 5.2% alc. Dead Frog Brewery - Pale ...

Made a Vanilla Oatmeal Stout, first time adding vanilla. Used an entire bean, scrapped the inner seeds with a knife. Sanitized the scrapped bean, and the seeds in a shot of spiced rum before adding them to the primary fermenter. Bottled it and then aged the bottles for a month now; tried a bottle th...

Highlander Brewing Co. - Twisted Spruce: no spruce, no twist

Tried this one last night. If it had said "regular beer" on the side of the bottle, it would have tasted great, but it didn't. The label clearly stated it was 'twisted spruce', so I expected 2 things; some spruce from the spruce tips they brewed with it, and a twist! Neither were present. ...

Going to be buying lots of these 6 packs just to drink the Apricots, not to thrilled about the other 2 beers. Man, that Apricot is delicious, had it on tap at a bun...

Might try again on another batch if people seem to like it. Nooooope! Don't bother. This stuff it bad , it wasn't just you. I see now why they recommend it ice cold, served with ice. Do yourself a favour and forget about ever trying it again. That goes for all of you! You hear that Bartowel? We dra...

Walked into the Lick-bow to find 6 packs of Guinness Dark Lager, 4.5% alc. Don't think anyone has mentioned it on here. Just thought I'd let everyone know.

Is there a way to tell what the hop is once the bud is formed? There's gotta be an app for that! Take a picture on your phone and have that Siri lady figure it out for you. I'm growing Goldings and Mt. Hood. Their 1st year was in buckets, then i planted them into the ground the 2nd year, and now it'...

Just picked up "Montgomery's Courage" amber ale, 500mL bottle from Black Creek, at the lick-bo. Can't find it in the LCBO's system online, but it was at the store, so I bought it. And ran into the new Summer Sampler from Mill St. Curious Parrot golden ale 5% alc./vol. and Don Valley Bench ...

Why doesn't everyone just drink Cameron's Rye Pale Ale all the time? It's pretty much the best beer ever, and it comes in a huge bottle.

Your welcome, "World Peace".

New beer store stuff that I came across this past week. I saw Rickard's Shandy, Boris Cubana Libre, and something else that caught my eye was Cheval Blanc 6-pack bottles. I know from past experience I don't like the Cheval much, but nice to see some more Quebec brewers getting into the Ontario marke...

I bought the tall boy cans of each, and found there was enough flavour in there to warrant purchasing the 12-bottle split-pack offered at The Beer Store. It's kinda nice to taste them against each other, and I even bought some HopCity Big Mouth cans to have a sort of 'low-end' hop battle between the...

I wish i was able to try one right now, but I can't because the LCBO that has them, hasn't put them on the shelf yet. And when I asked an employee to go into the back and find them, they didn't have any idea what I was talking about. Near as I can figure, the real problem is that the LCBO's face is ...

How come no one told me Trafalgar released a 'Ginger Mead'? I found it tucked away in the corner at the lick-bo. Could be delicious!! Could be amazing! Could be the next best thing!!
