287/1268) Home:  Winter Ale by St. Peter's Brewery of England:  **;  deep ruby red;  malty, spiced nose;  sort of like I would imagine a mulled beer to be, with a Kentish hop finish;

288/1269) Home:  Mission Accomplished by Beau's All Natural Brewing of Ontario:  **1/2;  Wild Oats Series No. 35;  a 6.7%, 65 ibu American IPA brewed with a blend of American and New Zealand hops;  hazy appearance;  citrus and pine notes to the nose;  tangerine, tropical fruit, bitter pine flavours - an excellent AIPA;  from the Best of Beau's mixed pack;  

289/1270)  Home:  Aporkalypse Now by Hogsback Brewing Co. of Ontario:  **;  a 5.4% oatmeal bacon stout, brewed with, yes, bacon;  the nose has notes of raspberry which I found unusual;  salty, bacon flavours with faint chocolate notes;


The Best of Beau's mixed pack is like the All-star game - the beers are chosen by ballots.  For the second year in a row, Burnt Rock made the team.
