In the 1830's, the separate colonies of Upper and Lower Canada both revolted against unjust government rule. Economic hardships emboldened rebels whose pursuit of democratic freedoms had long been suppressed. Although both rebellions were defeated, Upper and Lower Canada were unified as a result, and responsible, local government was enacted in Canada

    From LCBO Martinway. Clear copper pour under a minimal white head. Malt for the aroma. Sharp, biting characteristic to the flavour and this was reflected in the mouthfeel. Sharp finish, too. One was plenty.

    The beer pours a translucent scarlet red colour with ruby highlights and a this white ring for a head. The aroma was burnt toast, some sweet malt, and a weak hint of hops. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. Flavour was burnt toast, and sweet malt. Not much rye character in this beer. More like a brown ale gone wrong.

    Single brown bottle from the LCBO. Pours a deep amber colour with a frothy off-white head, great retention and creamy lacing. Was expecting a rye nose, but no, as strong butterscotch smell (reminding me of Steelback brews) with hints of nuts and light grass. Wet, boring mouthfeel that starts off the taste kind of bland and watery. Then, some nice grass kicks in a bit, adding some light bitterness and dryness. I guess the butterscotch I get from this brew, is the combination of lots of caramel malt and butter (diacetyl), which makes me think, this brew should not be like this, but much better. Beautiful looking beer though. Where's the rye ?

    Bottle—poured a lovely unfiltered clouded orange with a small cap. Very promising, considering the great traditional offerings coming from Black Creek, but the turd in the swimming pool here is Diacetyl in aroma and taste. For this rye ale which is supposed to be spicy and peppery, the diacetyl ruined the flavor and aroma profiles – not badly but enough to make this brew an odd amalgam of butterscotch meets spice and hop bite – weird profile. Another couple of weeks in conditioning would have cured this but perhaps the brewer had some release deadline to meet – pity
