Re: What're you drinking right now?

At bier markt, I retried a favourite Boon Kriek. To my disappointment, it it now a sweet lambic with not nearly the complexity I rememer it having. I will have to remember to avoid their regilar lineup now. At Wvrst, I had a glass of Cascade Kriek. Good, but could be more complex. So far I liked Cas...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

I just returned from my first trip to Godspeed brewery, and I can say I am very impressed.
ESB - well done.
Kristal Imperial IPA - ditto
Barley Wine - amazing
Dark Czech Lager - also amazing.

Re: Cowbell Brewing

Couldn’t find a Cowbell review thread so I’ll place this here: I’ve been to Cowbell 3 times now. Each time I’ve been impressed with the atmosphere and food, and the beers have been decent if a bit tame. Overall it’s been a positive experience. However when I was there last Sunday I went to the beer...

Forked River Flanders Red - Sour, acidic, fig-like maltiness with some fruitiness. Yum.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Muskoka Black Raspberry Thunder Milkshake IPA is similar to the Kawarthas ice cream that it is named after. It has a strong vanilla and black raspberry component, tasting like the ice cream. However, for an IPA I would like it to be hoppier.

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Recently I have had Big Rock's Hazy IPA at their Liberty Village location. It has juicy hop flavours with balanced malt. This is right up there with life in the clouds, when it is good. I am quite impressed. It seems the local brewer is more capable than the parent company's line up. Although they s...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Today and recently I have been enjoying Fuller's Bengal Lancer IPA. This is one of my favourite styles of beer, English IPA. Also it is my favourite Fuller's beet to date. It has that yummy English yeast strain with strawberry like esters and a herbal tea like earthy hop presence. I had it on draft ...

Re: Henderson Brewing Co

I dropped by this place tonight. First, I had their UPA Toronto IPA. It was good but not amazing. It did not not stand out in the variety of IPAs available in the province. It could ue more hop character. Next was the cinnabon stout. If you like cinnamon buns and 10% dessert stouts, then you will li...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

In the spirit of Christmas, i had some Northern Maverick Mint Condition. This is an imperial stout with oatmeal, coacoa, and mint. While I like their regular imperial stout better, this was pretty good. Recently, i retried Black Oak ten bitter years. This recent sample was more like the formula when...

Re: Bandit Brewery

Went to Bandit last night. I ordered a DIPA and an east coast IPA. I'd describe both as if someone had taken a well-made example of the style and added water to it. They weren't bad, but they weren't amazing either. I am guessing there is some improvement since previous posters visited, but there is...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Surely that beer is a little past prime now? Wet hop beers age especially poorly and the hop harvest was a while ago. FWIW, I had both beers on draught, so it seems CA is still selling it. Don't know, if they have kegs sitting around in a warehouse or something... Also, there are a lot of harvest a...
