Love to hear Matt's HO.
as for me.. un-remarkable.
It might be one of their better beers but there are a lot of dogs in that race.
Kinda english style, kinda malty, little to nil hop aroma....bitter finish.
I know they weren't shooting at an APA, but with so many good Ontario beers out there.... only if you're really curious.
I give you 24 of these for 1 Boneshaker.

its a decent english bitter, probably pretty close to what something like greene king IPA tastes like before pasturization.

here my RB review:
473ml can from the brick brewery retail via their new mixed 6 pack with this new ipa, their amber and their dark. pretty good value for 6 tall cans for $12.95. very light estery, dusty hop, and fruity malt nose. the flavour is decent, light fruitiness, lingering spicey hop bit. balanced, but bland. pretty drinkable for what it is.

so IMO its not an ipa but its a pretty decent local english style bitter

i wouldnt turn one down but iwont be buying more

while were talking brick, the mixed 6er that this comes in is actually good value @ $12.95 for 6 tall cans

no one here will be blown away by any of the 3 beers inside but it a solid pack to introduce n00bs to different styles and new flavours

id actually take this mixed 6 over the mill st mixed 6

And master blends of almost all of the above.

Most quaffable beer of the night? Fou Foune/Four Roses Eclipse/Demeters Harvest by far.

Derek, the original was a brown ale, all-malt, with a Cascade (or that type) flavour that was quite unique at the time. I believe the originator, Pete Slosberg, was (and is) based in San Francisco or the Bay Area somewhere.

I wonder why the name Texas Brown became associated with the American Brown Ale style..

Some Corps Mort Vin D'orge des Iles, an interesting barley wine with a hint of salt on the finish, and with dinner, A la Fut, La Bete Noire, a nice oatmeal stout.
