On tap at the Angel Inn, September 2010. Clear red pour, white head. Not much aroma, just some sweet caramel. Flavor was wet paper, some more cheap malts, and touches of caramel. Not awful, but nothing to write home about.

In short: A macro-like “amber” ale. Insulting.
How: Tap at Angel Inn, Niagara on the Lake
The look: Clear light copper body topped by a short lived off-white head
In long: Boring dominant flavour of artificial caramel. No hops to speak of. Really feels like an extract-based brewed beer. Reminiscent of a macro “amber” ale like Rickard’s Red or something like that. Exclusive to the Angel’s Inn of Niagara on the Lake, a little vacation town for wealthy old-folks for whom good beer is as important as a good underground alternative music scene.

Uhhhh...actually this is brewed by Niagara Falls Brewing..so the Inn Keeper said. On Tap at the Angel Inn in Olde Niagara On The Lake...historic tavern. Tapped a dark copper-red with a small rocky cap. Not much in the nose but a bit of caramel sweetness, some sour mustiness and just the lightest wisp of hops. Silky but weak mouth feel...sweet caramel malts with a sourish ale yeast tang to it...hops are virtually non existant...inoffensive enough for a house ale but not worth the trip unless you live close by.

I was looking up another Trafalgar rating and noticed they brewed this - neat, I have a rating store dup from my trip to the Angel in from the May long weekend. Dark red pour, small tan head. Light maltiness in aroma - so far so good. Taste is a disappointment - mild sweet taste, but pretty syrupy and unbalanced all on a watery base. We enjoyed the Angel Inn Bitter (which is the Niagara Falls Pale???) much more. If someone else is brewing this now let me know, I find it kind of odd that Trafalgar would be doing this since Niagara does all the other brews (although they have a ton of import taps as well). Cool spot, worth checking out when it isn’t too touristy.

7/20/01- Decent, but fairly unexciting. The bitter I had was much better than the Red.

Standard red ale, a little grainy, good bitterness, a little dry.
