#4287 Shipyard American Pale Ale from Portland, ME, United States
Score: 3.2 | Aroma 7 | Appearance 5 | Mouthfeel 6 | Flavor 7 | Overall 7 |
Enjoyed at Gilbert’s chowder house on our Easter trip there. Pours a pretty clean golden colour with a white cap, average stay and good full lacing. Fresh grassy hops aromas. Same for taste. The mouthfeel is lightly dry. Very easy going pale ale which went down well, especially with the seafood.

#4286 Liquid Riot / Borg Brugghus Delicate Little Funky Poo from Portland, ME, United States
Score: 3.2 | Aroma 7 | Appearance 6 | Mouthfeel 6 | Flavor 6 | Overall 7 |
Enjoyed at the Portland brewpub. Hazy light yellow colour with a small white head and decent lacing. Relaxing herbal aromas with the Brett sourness and Belgian ale yeast. The taste is quite mild quite with some Brett earthiness and light grassy notes. Does get better with time, but still not tasting the salt. Smells great, looks like a lot of work to do, but too mild to taste the fruit of their work.

#4285 Switchback Flynn on Fire Gates of Helles Smoked Helles Lager from Burlington, VT, United States
Score: 3.5 | Aroma 7 | Appearance 6 | Mouthfeel 8 | Flavor 7 | Overall 7 |
Bottle from the brewery that pours a clean light golden colour with a frothy white head, good stay and some froth lacing. Smoked malt aromas with some light sweetness from the grains. The flavours are really the same - sweet and smoked malts. Thankfully, the end is dry, so not lingering like syrup. Makes this easier to drink. A nice smoked Helles lager.

#4284 Flora Hall Azacca-Galaxy DDH IPA from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Score: 3.9 | Aroma 7 | Appearance 8 | Mouthfeel 8 | Flavor 8 | Overall 8 |
Enjoyed on tap at the bar, and now in cans at home. Pours a juicy-cloudy beige-golden colour with a creamy warm cap, long lasting with great lacing. Citrus peel and juices with mild grassiness. The taste has a nice light bitterness with the citrus, grass and mild tropical fruit finish. Nicely dry, but not overly. Lots of residue is left on the bottom, looking like yeast. This one goes down super well and those two hops are so well-blended. An IPA that is not too bitter, not too juicy, but very nicely balanced. I would have any time.

#4283 Bench Brewing Simcoe Grove from Beamsville, Ontario, Canada
Score: 3.5 | Aroma 8 | Appearance 7 | Mouthfeel 7 | Flavor 6 | Overall 7 |
Pours a hazed light golden-yellow colour with a big white fizzy head that comes down quick enough, but has a coat of bubbles that tops the brew. Lemon sour nose with other tropical fruit notes and hints of funk. The funk and earthiness is more present in the taste. Citrusy mild and not too sour. Gets cloudy at last pour. The Simcoe gives some decent grass notes and a lightly dry finish.

#4282 Flora Hall Raspberry Peach Sherbet Sour from Ottawa, Ontario, Canada
Score: 3.3 | Aroma 8 | Appearance 6 | Mouthfeel 6 | Flavor 6 | Overall 7 |
Enjoyed on tap at the bar and now rating a bottle at home. Hazy amber-pink colour with a soapy off-white-pinkish head that does not stay too long, and gives out minimal lacing. Nice nose though with the raspberry and sourness blend well together. The peach and lactose sweetness just adds a hint to balance things. The taste is milder, with the raspberries showing as the stronger fruit. Not much of a finish, but yeast tart lingers on the tongue. Not bad, but wish the taste was a little more potent.

#4281 Rurban Brewing Ekuanot Hops & Gose from Cornwall, Ontario, Canada
Score: 3 | Aroma 6 | Appearance 6 | Mouthfeel 6 | Flavor 6 | Overall 6 |
Ah-ha !! Ekuanot hops, formerly called Equinox. As their original non-Ekuanot Hops & Gose, this one is more hops than Gose. Oranges mostly in the nose with their peels, squeezed and fermenting from a few days. Some cereal notes, tropical fruit hints. The taste shows much of the citrus fruit found in the aromas. Some mild hoppy finish with decent dryness. Just a touch of salt lingers. Not enough to say Gose in the title. The coriander seems lost as well in here with this hop. Can't say I am really impressed with their brews so far.

#4280 Rurban Brewing Hops & Gose from Cornwall, Ontario, Canada
Score: 3 | Aroma 6 | Appearance 7 | Mouthfeel 7 | Flavor 5 | Overall 5 |
Can from the brewery that pours a hazy golden-orange colour with an off-white bubbly head that has an average stay and leaves good foamy lacing. Malty nose with some caramel notes. Some oranges come out eventually with the yeast. The flavours have some citrus hints but everything seems to fall short. Maybe a tad of coriander, but the salt is nowhere to be found. Decent mouthfeel, but not much else found. Not much of a Gose.

#4279 Spearhead Summer Ale from Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Score: 2.9 | Aroma 7 | Appearance 5 | Mouthfeel 5 | Flavor 6 | Overall 6 |
Now under Chardonnay Summer Ale. Pours a slight hazy, golden colour with a light amber hue. The white head is bubbly and fizzes away quickly, leaving no lacing. Belgian Ale yeast nose at first with spicy hops and some mild Chardonnay sweetness over the malts. The cereal grains come out first in the taste, and mostly yeast continues over this. Some hints of spices in the background. Nothing really awesome, as yeast is not very well-balanced with other goods.

#4278 Michelob Ultra Pure Gold from St. Louis, MO, United States
Score: 2.1 | Aroma 4 | Appearance 3 | Mouthfeel 4 | Flavor 6 | Overall 4 |
My GF does not mind the Ultra to keep carbs down, so having an organic alternative is great. Found this one in the States, as not available in Canada so far. Pours a clean golden colour with a regular white cap, average retention and minimal lace. Mild cereal grain smell with light sweetness. Soda water feel with very mild cereal notes, and no sweetness thankfully. No awful lingering so that is good. A nice change from such a big brewery to have organic. Drinkable for low carbs.
