Crit (3809) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 26, 2005
A Belgian???? Hardly !!! Sure is a lot like an amber to me. Amber with beige head. Light carmel malt nose. Malt profile with a few finishing hops

pootzboy (1690) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 21, 2005
on tap...pour saw a amber-chestnut colored ale with a smallish cap that laced moderately. Good fruity nose with soe hint of musty herb. Good caramel malt body, stiff shot of grassy hop near the clean finish....a nice draft ale for a meal...I had one with an Angus filet...excellent.

pivo (2660) - GERMANY - MAR 8, 2005
TAP: Light pleasant nose, ruddy amber color, light cream biege head. A reserved malt base offers some caramel and nutty flavors balanced but a light, quick hop bitter (slightly grassy). Overall good balance. The kind of beer that goes well with food but is substantial enough to drink on its own.

Commodore (112) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2005
Looked really nice (copper colour) with a little ring of head. Quite enjoyed the abundance of malts. The beer had a very fruity taste, which wasn’t entirely unwelcome! Draught.

Goldorak (438) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 11, 2005
Sampled on tap. Translucent and bronze red, with a light, off white head that turned into a shy ring of lace, which is sort of dissapointing, because I know it usually has more than that. Maybe the keg was getting a little old. Slightly grassy, but mostly a flowery, honey hop smell. Decent maltyness with a roasted touch and a lightly bitter finish. Carbonation feels soft coming down but also coated my tongue with tiny bubbles which I really liked. No wonder I spent the latter part of my University years drinking this.

Crockett (1081) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2005
Pours amber nothing for a head. Sugary malt aroma. Herbal. Cheap malt let down and some medicine hops. Tea. Sweet flavourless finish.

Bouteille de 341 ml. Arôme: Présence d’agrumes et de caramel. Apparence: Belle couleur ambrée. Gros col blanc mousseux qui perdure. Très faible dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Légère touche de sucrée au début qui se transforme en amertume moyenne. Durée de l’arrière goût moyen. Palette: Texture huileuse. Carbonisation moyenne. Léger arrière goût de noix. (Rating #67)

hopscotch (10563) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 17, 2005
Looks nice (clear, copper ale with a small, fizzy, white head). Brewed with pure barley malt, but tastes just like all the other cheap Canadian and U.S. macro swill. At least it didn’t give me a headache, but don’t bother.

asheft (2926) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 14, 2004
Clear reddish brown with little head. Citrusy aroma with some caramel maltiness. Medium body with a sweet malty flavour balanced by hops and a little hops bitterness.

pintbypint (3327) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 24, 2004
341ml brown bottle. A nice looking beer- long lasting, full off white head, dark amber/orange body, mildly carbonated. A tinge of metallics in the aroma, but mostly caramel and some hops. Noticeable hop bitterness, lots of caramel malt, slightly syrupy body. A nice surprise seeing as I didn’t enjoy their "Doree" too much.
