88/1069) the Epic Lounge at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel, Toronto:  1929 Cream Ale by Double Trouble Brewing of Ontario *1/2;  this was a bottled selection, brewed especially for the Royal York;  the Royal York first opened its doors in 1929 and this commemorative beer is “crafted with ingredients and methods which hold true to the 20’s time period.”;  earthy, sweet malty nose;  hoppy flavours;  the prices approach epic but they do offer a free bowl of mixed snack items;

89/1070) the Epic Lounge at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel:  Royal York Stinger Honey Beer by Mill Street Brewery of Ontario:  *1/2;  brewed with honey from beehives on the rooftop garden and apiary at the Royal York; a golden ale;  subtle honeyed nose;  honey is most prominent at finish, otherwise it is subtle, mostly sweet maltiness;

90/1071)  The 3 Brewers:  The Blossom/La Floraison by The 3 Brewers of Ontario:  *1/2;  4.6%;  for me the hook was that the source of starch is Corn Flakes;  brewed with Tettnang hops;  there is a faint tangyness in common with all of The 3 Brewers' beers, perhaps it is the yest or maybe the malt;  sweet and malty;  the story is a bit better than the beer;;
