reviewed Brookly Brewery Black Chocolate Stout. March 05, 2011
posted in The Beer Snob
Brookly Brewery Black Chocolate Stout
A pitch black body laced with pleasantly modest carbonation with good staying power resides underneath a dark tan head that dissipates virtually instantly after the pour. The aromas and the flavours match …

Dieu du Ciel Péché Mortel
Here's the commercial description of this creamy dark beer:      Péché Mortel (French for "Mortal Sin") is an intensely black and dense beer with very …
reviewed Innis & Gunn Rum Cask Oak Aged Beer. October 30, 2010
Innis & Gunn Rum Cask
Innis & Gunn has long been one of my favourite beers and this flavourful winter variety certainly didn't disappoint me!    A very light head, in fact almost non-existent disappeared …
reviewed McEwan's Scotch Ale. September 19, 2010

McEwan's Scotch Ale
While some reviewers on the internet talked about a modest head, my very aggressive pour resulted in little more than a modest dusting of off white head which dissipated virtually instantly …
reviewed Sleeman Honey Brown Lager. March 27, 2010

Sleeman Honey Brown Lager
Sleeman is a local Canadian micro-brewery (well ... local to me anyway!) made good and grown to mass-producing adult proportions! And while I like the cachet and snob appeal of drinking good quality …
reviewed Abbot Ale. March 26, 2010
posted in The Beer Snob
Abbot Ale
Abbot Ale, one entry in Greene King Brewery's excellent stable of ales, lagers, bitters and stouts, is an exercise in moderation. The marketing on the can trumpets an enticing invitation, "An irresistible …
reviewed Faxe Amber. March 21, 2010

Faxe Amber
The pour held plenty of promise and potential! A beautiful, intense, rich colour that hovered halfway between gold and copper was, if I do say so, duplicated beautifully by the product people on the can …
reviewed Crest Super Premium Lager. March 14, 2010
posted in The Beer Snob
Crest Super Premium Lager
At first pour (or one might say at first blush) Crest Super Premium Lager, an English brew produced with German hops,  is a rich yellow colour with virtually non-existent head and lacing. The …
reviewed Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier. January 30, 2010
Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier
There are lots and lots of different ales and lagers that I've enjoyed over the years but I've always wondered what the difference between the two types of beers were. Call me a barbaric beer Philistine …
reviewed Tusker Lager. January 24, 2010
Tusker Lager
Tusker Lager, made in Kenya by Kenya Breweries Ltd, pours into the glass with a lovely golden straw colour but a head that's somewhere between modest and virtually non-existent. What little head is there …
reviewed Hofbräu Oktoberfestbier. January 15, 2010
Hofbräu Oktoberfestbier
Here's how one reviewer on an internet beer site categorized this one:      "Pale gold liquid with high retentionable monolithic froth (2-finger). Pleasant hop aroma essentially …
reviewed Affligem Blonde. January 09, 2010
Affligem Blonde
Affligem Blonde Beer isn't so much a simple beer as it is an experience.  To wit:   Take a chilled glass and slowly empty the bottle's contents ... slowly, mind you. Admire the warm, golden …
reviewed Mythos Hellenic Lager Beer. January 06, 2010
Mythos Hellenic Lager Beer
Mythos isn't going to win any awards at the next international lager competition but it certainly isn't going to gross anyone out either.      As I sipped on my first bottle of Mythos …

Asahi
As I started to write the review, I realized I was having difficulty finding any words of wisdom to pass on. I felt like I was trying to snag a zephyr or find the words to describe the taste of cold water …
reviewed Hop City Barking Squirrel. January 02, 2010
Hop City Barking Squirrel
The clever, sardonic and obviously cynical marketing types at Ontario craft brewery, Hop City, take a satirical swipe at the TV marketing of their larger competitors and remind potential drinkers not …
reviewed Brew Dog Punk IPA. January 01, 2010
Brew Dog Punk IPA
I've never thought of myself as a sucker for advertising but I can certainly appreciate subtlety or clever humour in a pitch. So when I visited our local suds outlet on New Year's Eve and read this label, …
reviewed Gouden Carolus Classic. December 31, 2009
Gouden Carolus Classic
The Carolus web site suggests that, historically, this was an emperor's beer. Obviously, with the name "Carolus", we're talking Emperor Charles here. Apparently, he was quite fond of drinking …
reviewed Innis & Gunn Blonde Beer. December 26, 2009
Innis & Gunn Blonde Beer
At 6.6% alcohol, Innis & Gunn Blonde Beer lovingly brewed in Scotland, would be classified as a strong beer. And while its smooth flavour is certainly powerful, there's nothing overwhelming or unpleasant …
