pumpkinhead2 (410) - Longueuil, Quebec, - NOV 11, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2014 Bière rouge orangée, parfaitement limpide, effervescence moyenne, large col beige mousseux et compacte, qui s’étiole lentement en traçant son chemin sur les parois du verre. Arômes de pain grillé, sucre d’orge, caramel/cassonade, grain, avec un léger houblon floral. Beau nez qui semble annoncer une bière plutôt sucré, assez intense, mais ça manque un peu de complexité cependant. En bouche, c’est bien pétillant, mais beaucoup trop mince au palais. Au goût, on perd malheureusement beaucoup d’intensité par rapport au nez. Léger pain grillé, sucré dominant, mais il est difficile d’en identifier clairement la saveur (sucre d’orge, caramel, ou tout simplement du sucre brut?), léger houblon floral, pointe d’alcool, finale légèrement amère. Bière correcte sans plus, destinée au grand public, elle est bonne, mais elle offre peu sur le plan de la dégustation.

Had a pint with Mexican food, pairs better than crap Sol or Corona. It did the job, not hideous. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

473 ml. can. Thanks Doug! Pours a clear copper with a decent off-white head. Aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is malt, caramel, and a bit of fruit. On the thin side. Drinkable but not memorable.

AgentAle (794) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 25, 2014
Aroma is light roasted malts, caramel and bland hops. Taste is rich malts with a bland bitterness. Pretty uninspiring overall. A clear amber body with a pearl head that retains fairly poorly.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2382) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 22, 2014
Bottle. Clear honey brown, cream soda, mild caramel in the nose. Thin watery body. The taste is weak watery caramel, a bit acrid bitter malts kind of a sugary sweet finish. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BreWedge (335) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2014
On tap @ Lone Star Belleville. Pours a clear amber with a small white head. Aromas are fermented fruit, spent grain, a bit of alcohol. Tastes are light grainy malts, a hint of bitterness in the back-end, and a touch of alcohol. Light body, medium carbonation, light and short bitter finish. Though non-offensive, this beer is a typical mass produced ale distinguished only by a little bit of added color. I have some self-loathing for having chosen this beer simply because I had not yet rated it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

On tap. Caramel amber pour with very little head. Caramel malt flavour. Kinda flat. Not much going on here.

monk191 (1092) - California, USA - JUL 24, 2014
A simple and refreshing red, but forgettable. Pours a nice red color with a light white head. Smells of malt and cherries. A bit more cherries in the start, with some malt, but finishes sort of empty. Had on tap at Mug and Anchor is Mahone Bay.

Ferris (5005) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 13, 2014
Draft - Pale malts and light caramel. Clear amber with a rich white head. Ligh biscuit and caramel, sweet and over carbonated. Typical light lager alternative.

Hidden_Pooch (409) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 24, 2014
Bottle. Somewhat better than an original Keiths, but that isn’t too hard to achieve. Taste of very light caramel malts, and no hops to be heard of. Inoffensive aftertaste with more of a body than expected. Would take one over a macro lager, but that’s about it.
