105/1923) Monk's Kettle:  Bitter by St. Mary Axe of Ontario:  **;  4.7%, 32 ibu;  malty nose;  rich malty flavours with a hoppy snap at the finish;  contract brewed in London, Ontario, it styles itself a Canadian Best Bitter;  named for St. Mary Axe medieval church in London, England, which was demolished during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I;

106/1924) Monk's Kettle:  Undercover Brother, a collaboration between Brothers' Brewing Company and Brimstone of Ontario:  *1/2;  6%, 23 ibu;  a White Chai Stout brewed with coffee, milk sugar, chocolate and chai;  sweet, nearly sugary nose;  sweet, mildly chocolatey; I am missing the roastiness;

107/1925) Monk's Kettle:  Shumei IPA by Blood Brothers Brewing of Ontario:  **;  6.5%;  piney nose;  strong piney flavours;  2 is perhaps a harsh rating but this is a crowded field and I find it is harder for an IPA to impress me these days;
