COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made from mostly pale malt and some Munich and caramel malts. These add a little sweetness, which is balanced by more hops. The result is a rich color and fruity flavor.

Fairly clear golden brown color, big head that dissolves away with a few swigs. Pleasant Sweet Aroma - not strong. Starts out tasting good, hoppy nutty, leaves a slight bitter tastte in your mouth but goes away quick. It tastes like its fairly strong alcohol wise.

Mild, soapy, floral, sweet, grassy, herbal hop nose. Clear copper coloured body is topped by low white head that recedes to ring with some lace. Floral and earthy hop character to the sweet, malty flavour with some honey-like notes and moderate finishing bitterness. Medium body with fine-bubbled, gently prickly effervescence. Bottle sampled with muzzlehatch, Olivier_MTL and Rastacouere.

Good balance of malt and hops but flavor isn’t quite where I’d like it to be. Cloudy amber in color with a bunch of sediment on the bottom of the glass - unfiltered, I presume. Nice, slightly sweet aroma.

stoutchap (421) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 30, 2005
Poured a dark honey color, or urine when severely dehydrated. 3-finger head rapidly dissipated. Sweet smell, a little wheaty, and stales as time goes on. Mostly caramelly malts, over sweet, only the faintest hint of any hops. Two sweet for my tastes. Easy drinking - not really offensive, just middle-of the road.

Nice off white head. Copper color with some slight cloudiness. A different style amber ale if one is thinking Killian. A good beer from start to finish. Try it

Poured a dark orange brown color with a nice amount of offwhite head. Aroma is sweet piney and floral. Flavor is very sweet, yeasty and slightly bitter. Overall, definitely a dissapointment. On a side note, i noticed a similar yeasty taste in their brown ale which i also didnt like.

Thanks to Duane for this one. It poured a nice copper color, with an average head. Flavor was a bit too sweet for me, not very balanced, sweet aftertaste. Not terrible by any means, but not great either, ok.

piscator34 (2128) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - AUG 17, 2005
Bright orange in colour with a slightly off white head. Surprisingly fruity aromas and flavors, mainly lemon, orange, and perhaps even a bit of peach. There are some nice caramel flavors, but little contribution from the hops. Fairly thick bodied, and mellow. Not really what I expected from this brewer, and not quite up to the regular high standards of this brewery, but a solid beer nonetheless.

OlivierMTL (711) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2005
Couleur…ambré !, assez pale sous une mousse blanche et persistante. Arômes timides semblant vouloir retenir les houblons et le caramel. Peu de goût, bien fait mais vraiment rien d’exceptionnel ici Essentiellement maltée, quelques résidus de sucre sous des houblons aux profils citronnés, restant constamment en arrière. Corps semi mince, étalement court. Servi en fût Chez Ashsley’s, Ann Arbor, Michigan, Juillet 2005.

An amber color and a dirty white head. Has a floral scent almost pinelike with a hint of citrus. A nice hopped flavor balanced with a malty sweetness.
