Lukaduke (2000) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Pours a rusty amber color with a finger of eggshell foam. Lots of burnt sugar sweetness, toasted malts, some underlying grassy bitterness cleans up the sweetness on the finish, yeast is a bit underwhelming but focused malt profile helps keep it interesting.

rodenbach99 (3063) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2014
Un verre sur place en mangeant un hot-dog moutarde Dijon choucroute. Une robe cuivrée translucide. Un nez avec des notes de malts grillés, de caramel, de noisette. Une bouche simple mais efficace de malt, de caramel et de houblon. Une légère amertume en finale.

SlovakSniper (3013) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 18, 2014
Un verre sur place en mangeant un hot-dog choucroute. Une robe scintillante et un petit col mousseux. Un nez simple avec ses malts grillés, son caramel foncé et ses noix. Une bouche maltée avec ce qu’il faut de houblons. Un corps de moyenne densité avec un pétillement fort et une texture finement huileuse. Une finale peu compliquée avec ses notes toastées. Appréciable.

solidfunk (3605) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 6, 2013
A little off. Oaky flavour of astringency in finish that seems out of place. Pours clear brown without much head or lacing. Malt-forward aroma. Astringency dies down after a bit though, and works for style. On tap at brewpub.

mcberko (5942) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
On tap at Benelux, pours a crystal clear amber with a small beige / tan head. Aroma of slightly sweet caramel malts - not much else. Flavour of moderately sweet caramel malts, just enough hop balance. Rather boring, but easy drinking.

Matts_Property (831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 8, 2012
On tap at the brew pub. Pours a clear orange/gold with almost no head. Aroma of oranges, bread, light malt. Flavour the same. Nothing of interest to speak of. Very blah.

yespr (30689) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2011
From tap at the brewpub, Pours clear and golden amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is toasted caramelish and malty to breadish. Toasted and caramelish to toffee malty. Light bitter, toasted and caramelish finish.

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2011
On tap at the Brew Pub. Poured a deeper amber color with a small sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of caramel, fruity, and toasted nuts.

jercraigs (7456) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 10, 2011
2011-07-30. Crisp dark amber body with a nice white head and lace. Flavour of mild sweet caramel malt, light bitterness, bit of a dusty malt character. Bit odd at times. Average bodied palate. Not to my tastes. On tap at the brewpub, Montreal

robinvboyer (2985) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Amber pour, light grassy hops, some nuts and a subtle fruitiness. Nice carbonation, good mouthfeel, medium finish. Good dose of cereal malts in the end with some more light grassy hops.
