Junction Conductor’s Craft Ale

The Toronto Festival of Beer is this weekend and times have never been better for fans of beer in Ontario and Canada, with an explosion of homegrown craft brewers. The Ontario government has announced an extension of an initiative of funding for Ontario craft brewers, the Ontario Microbrewery Strategy. One of the many new brewers to come out of Toronto is Junction Craft Brewing, operating out of Toronto’s Junction neighbourhood. I admit I’d never tried anything by them until today when a neighbour told me, “they sell it at the LCBO now and you HAVE to try it.”

Conductor’s Craft Ale pours with a copper body and a very thick white head. The aroma is solid and has a strong resemblance to cinnamon. The flavour is very malty and creamy, and the finish has a mix of bitter hops with more cinnamon and spice. I wouldn’t say this was a beer I HAD to try, but it was a good recommendation. Rate beer calls this an American pale ale, I would definitely call this more of a cream ale. I’m all aboard with this one.
