2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Growler from the source - Looks and smells like a macro amber, tastes like the upset was in the works, but didn’t pan out.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from the LCBO. Poured into a Shaker, poured a light amber with a thin white head. Malty with no real hop presence to the aroma, rather thin and weakly carbonated on the palate. Mildly sweet, clean finish. Not at all memorable, kind of a boring beer. Don’t think I’d buy another one.

Had this on tap and the can offering - I will write this review on the canned sample I acquired was a lot different than the draft sample - yes this has all the attributes of an "amber ale" (great catch-all category) but this canned version verges on bland.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Liquide de feu, surmonté d’une petite mousse innocente. Le nez est fruité, avec un peu de caramélisé. Bouche également fruitée, texture très mince, avec un brin de sucre d’orge et une petite amertume pour couronner le tout. Une rousse plus fruitée que franchement sucrée, avec d’agréables notes de houblon mais qui n’impressionne pas vraiment au final, par ses notes fruitées cliché, et sa minceur.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Crap... this is just an ipa they put food colouring in... instead of nice notes of caramel all i get is citrus flavours and more hops then you can shake a stick at... even the colour is wrong...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
473 mL can. Light amber with a head of loose white that laces. Mild and bready malt base with light toffee and spicy-floral hops. Light sweetness, balanced finish. Light body, average plus carbonation. Light on the palate with a slightly sticky finish. Simple, refreshing, well made, just not exciting.

Clear amber pour with small off white head. Aroma of malts, grains, slight caramel and faint hops. Taste of caramel malts, grains, faint citrus, hay and faint hops on the finish. Light bodied, medium-high carbonation. Very sessionable but nothing to great.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
can. Poured orangey-amber with a big creamy tan head. The aroma is sweet with cereal grains. Medium bodied with a creamyish mouthfeel and carbonation, sticky and tart at the end. Flavour is grainy, some caramel malt, hop presence shows as bitter-tart grapefruit note without the citrus sweetness.
