297/2115) Home: Bent Spoke by MacLean's Ales of Ontario: *1/2; 3.9%; a "sessionable ale" from their "low gear session series"; pours clear and golden; herbal, lemony nose; lemony notes with a bitter resiny finish; a fine effort but something seems to be missing;
298/2116) Home: Found Bikes Ride Faster by Big Rig of Ontario: **; a 6.0% Experimental Pale Ale brewed in collaboration with Great Lakes Brewing to mark their 30th anniversary using "an experimental hop" details of which, including its name, remain obscure; strawberry tea-like nose; citrusy flavours with strawberry and melon; definitely off centre but very nice indeed;
A pair of bicycle-themed beers.
