For those who be­lieve big­ger is bet­ter, here is a hand­ful of ales lean­ing to­ward bold­ness. An im­pres­sive show­ing of flavour, while man­ag­ing to stay in the realm of ses­sion­abil­ity.


Founders All Day IPA LCBO 486514, 6 pk, $14.45 (4.7% ABV)

Full-flavoured ex­plo­sion of cit­rus and pine; a low-al­co­hol beer that man­ages to pack a huge punch of flavour. Sweet mango and or­ange curd mesh beau­ti­fully with bit­ter hop­ping, rem­i­nis­cent of green tea.

Welling­ton Spe­cial Pale Ale LCBO 190439, 473 mL, $2.95 (5% ABV)

A full-flavoured ale with notes of dried bis­cuit, caramel and ker­nel fruit on the nose. A round malti­ness is kept in check with gen­tle hop­ping for a pleas­ing, clean fin­ish.

Old To­mor­row Cana­dian Pale Ale LCBO 400853, 473 mL, $3.00 (4.9% ABV)

A warm nose of toasted raisin bread and or­ange mar­malade leads into a won­der­fully bal­anced, Bri­tish-style ale. Full of sweet tof­fee and malt flavour and a clean, el­e­gant fin­ish.

Fuller’s Lon­don Pride LCBO 470757, 500 mL, $3.00 (4.7% ABV)

A warm sweet nose of apri­cot and tof­fee, with a warm sweet malt aroma. The palate de­liv­ers as promised with round, fruity malti­ness and a re­fresh­ingly bit­ter, dried herb fin­ish.
