Today I had some CBS and some Backwoods Bastard, and I would say these are ready to drink now, which I believe is industry vernacular for 'these may be very shelf-stable but won't likely improve.'

I see the agency that brought modern times also carries Alesmith. That would be pretty sweet if that showed up sometime

Hmm wonder how the pale ale is holding up at this point?

I'll crush one tonight and will report back. Still less than 3 months so that's pretty dece in my opinion. At least it's not old as fuck.

Drinking one now, orange and lemon zest with bitter finish. It's drinking nicely, but wouldn't go out and buy too many. Also they are packaged in 4 packs, so you may get lucky and get 4 for 1 with a clueless lcbo cashier....

I tried. Even looked for the easiest target. She caught on. :(

The pale ale is meh, the sour/gose is much better.

I enjoyed the pale. Not really worth revisiting, unless we had a fresher batch or cheaper cans. I'll be drinking these first as I'm sure the stout and sour will hold up better.

The stout is bordering on black lager, thing Napanee Blacklist with coffee.

Had both the pale ale and the stout and was wholly unimpressed. Would not revisit.

The modern times pale tastes and smells like it would have been fantastic in November.
