Cool - that must have been a treat. Out of curiosity, where did you get the Goudenband?

I didn't know FestivAle was out! Let me know how it is, I'll probably head out there next weekend.

I must say they are quite a treat. I've had an 88, and an 87. The 87 I shared with some folks on here, and it was might fine.

I had a choice between a Victory Hop Devil that has been expired for almost a year and a Tankhouse Ale. I chose the Hop Devil. Sadly still trumps the Tankhouse.

Tankhouse is one of the best beers available at my local LCBO. Certainly the hoppiest. Sad, I know.

Had a Duchy Organic Ale with dinner tonight......left over from the winter and only average. However, I drank a few Bell's Hopslam's this weekend that I brought back from Kalamazoo. Those may down-grade every thing else I'll be drinking this week.

Well, it's Monday night so I'm not quite up to playing macho CAMRA/Hop superhero, so I'm hanging up my tights for the night and having a Tankhouse too. :)

If this were to become the generic session ale of the town, we would have little to complain about.

I'm sitting out back, watching my kids play, and enjoying a Headstrong Pale Ale. (Quickly becoming a favourite.)

And I'll second Tapsucker's Tankhouse comment. Nothing wrong with that beer at all.

Yeah me neither. I only had one Hop Devil left so I drank it. On to Tankhouse now as well.
