I've been a beer lover for as long as I can remember. I have little formal training (I have taken a beer appreciation course), and I do not possess a "sophisticated palate". I simply know what I like and why. My tastes range from lagers to porters and everything in between. This blog is a collection of reviews, as well as a platform for my thoughts on all things beer. Cheers!

Conductor's Craft Ale
Conductor's Craft Ale comes from the Junction Craft Brewery in Toronto. It came in a 500mL can featuring a train conductor hollerin'. It clocks in at 5.2% alcohol and 32 IBUs. It's a pale ale that pours a rich copper colour and features a fullsome layer of loose off-white head. The aroma blends caramel and hops in a well-balanced way. The can tells me that there are five types of malt and five types of hops. Though CCA is listed at 32 IBUs, it tastes considerably more bitter to my unsophisticated palate. With malt on the front end, bitter on the back, this beer has notes of caramel and a pleasing hop presence.
After sampling this lovely brew, I'm eager to see what else the folks at Junction coming up with.
