AGAquino (659) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2012
From notes. At the Brewery. Pours a deep orange amber colour with a slight white head. Aroma is slightly sour, with notes of buttery vanilla. Flavour is sweet malts, some toffee, and slight hop bitter. Quite balanced.

Smells nutty. Very clear light pour compared to my last two. Rusty clear very little head. Light and easy to drink which is odd for and October beer. I expect strong thick and filling. Is is not bad though just not what I expected. Very refreshing. Reminds me of a couple amber ales I’ve had in the past. Actually enjoying this quite a bit.

fiulijn (14609) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 14, 2012
Draught at C’est What, Toronto
Golden to amber color, with creamy head. Some aroma of malt and hay. Smooth mouthfeel, with nice malt and hay flavor, some cereals, a bit creamy; correct bitterness. Balanced.

Gorbalev (2924) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2011
Bottle from the brewery. Light golden brown pour, good sized slick of a white head. Nice strong aroma of bread, roast, nuts - very inviting. Taste - very solid as well. Tons of nutty flavour balanced by lively carbonation and hops over a light body. Nice roast/nutty/sweet linger as well. Black oak knocked this one out of the park, well done guys, I wish I had bought more than the 6 pack!

On tap at c’est what. Excellent and pleasantly surprised at the high hop content. I can’t place the unique flavor maybe something like butterscotch?

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 23, 2011
Deep amber-orange pour. Tight white head. The aroma is lightly sour with a touch of soft vanilla as well. Moderate Munich malt sweetness along with a touch of fruit that is kind of unwanted. A touch estery and chewy. Medium-bodied with a little bit of toffee as well. It’s actually fairly hoppy though and the hops are more UK than German. Odd brew- this is. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at the Rebel House. Copper coloured pour with a tight and sticky head. The aroma is appropriately malty with lots of Munich malt toastiness. Light noble hops along with a touch of fresh bread crust. Good balance although it’s initially quite carbonic tasting. Better than the ratings would suggest. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2011
A hazed amber with a thin white head. In aroma, white wine and smooth sweet malt, fruity esters. In mouth, a smooth nutty and oaky malt with oily mouthfeel, chalky, nice. Cask at Beaus’s Oktoberfest, Oct. 1 2011.

radiomgb (2249) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2010
Clear copper, thin white head, patchy lacing. Aroma of cookies, caramel, bread. Flavour is of cookies, dough, light sweetness. Sweet mouth, light body, mod carb. Finishes tangy with some caramel sweetness.

It’s just okay.

Elkas (213) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2010
341ml bottle at Chancey Smiths, London. Pours red. Lager yeast in the aroma. Malt and hops play equal roles in the flavour, nicely balanced. Sweet finish.

manuchampions (1237) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 10, 2010
On tap at Volo. Dark orange with an off beige head and lace. Taste is caramel, toasty malt, slightly citric. The bitterness develops nicely. Finish is lingering and decent. Overall not bad.
