The bottom tier is occupied by own brewery in a class of its own:
Regulars: 1/5. Their Elora beers are passable, but overly sweet. Sadly, they represent the highpoint of the Trafalgar output.
Seasonals: 0/5.They almost got a point for the initial batch of the Hop Nouveau, but one good beer doesn’t make up for loads of sour beer. Never buy a seasonal Trafalgar unless five separate sources agree that it is good. Breaking this rule may lead to you being placed in an institution.
Consistency: 0/5. You don’t get consistency points for regularly making bad beer.
Availability: 4/5. It is hard not to award major points in this category because there always seem to be two or three of their seasonal beers in the LCBO all across the province. You win this round, Trafalgar.
Extras: 1/5. I saw them at an event once! That’s all I’ve got.
Total: 6/25. Yes, that’s bad, but what do you expect when you continuously make an inferior product?
