341ml bottle pours a golden brown color with a finger of white head that dissipates quickly leaving only a slight trace of lacing. Aroma is cereal grains and earthy hop notes. Taste is grainy malt sweetness with some herbal hop bitterness. Ok brew for the style, nothing special.

Metalchopz (2198) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2012
Originally rated August 2005. Had this one at the Pub Italia on Preston street in Ottawa, Ontario. Poured a golden honey amber colour with a small head and amount of lacing. The carbonation was lively. The nose and taste were both light in fruit, like peach. Also found in the taste was grain malt and a clean finish. The mouthfeel was creamy and almost sandy, in a way. Overall, a very well-brewed beer with very nice peachy taste and aromas, and a good first experience with Agassiz brewery.

341ml bottle.
Pours a clear brown orange with a small cream head that disappears fast. Aroma is quite creamy and sweet, but not much else. Flavour is sugary, woody and a little bready. Carbonated feel. Easy drinking but not the most enjoyable.

We were impressed with the deep-rooted natural beer flavour, and found it tasted best in a shaker. Disappointed with the claim to be a Manitoba beer but brewed in Ontario. Any beer named Catfish definitely should be brewed in Manitoba (catfish capital of the world). Canít fool a brew drinker...bring back Truth in Advertising!

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 20, 2006
Generally uninspired beer. The pour looked attractive, golden and quickly fading head. The mouthfeel was very carbonated. Flavors of bread-like maltiness, weak tea, and touch of dishwater. Iím not sure what this was supposed to be!

Cornfield (5437) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2006
A bottle from the New Manitoba brewery: Iím not sure what a "British style cream ale" is, but what I drank had a deep golden body, highly carbonated, but with little of any head. The aroma was a very soft malt with a touch of tea and wet cardboard. Not much flavor, and the carbonation hid most of what was there. A nondescript malt, some tin, and tea. Clean finish.

dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - AUG 29, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 4, 2008 caramely (pencil shavings) cloudy brown, no head. smelled only of air. tastes like a well soaked cardbord box with a pleasingly bubbly finish which probably is the only saving grace for this beer.

Gorbalev (2906) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2006
Thought I was going to get me a Manitoba rating, but Iíll take the Ontario one. Shared with Blankboy at The Only Cafe in Toronto. My last rating before Lent (well, it is Lent now, but I had this the night before it started). Very dark yellow, small white head. Sweet honey, grain in poor aroma. Odd taste of musty malt, earthy tea-like hops, and a little metallic bottly type flavour. Interesting funky grain taste as well. Ok, it is just dark lager, but I liked the herbal quality to it. This wasnít my last beer before Lent thankfully (a pint of Mill St. Tankhouse was). I look forward to rating again after Easter.

Bottle shared with tupalev at the Only Cafť. Pours a clear dark gold with a spare diminishing white head. Sweet aroma of grain, malt and fruit. Somewhat watery malty flavour with a mild hoppy finish. Creamy mouthfeel, medium bodied. Nothing great but much better then I expected, Iíd drink it again.
