PictouRx (155) - Ontario, - NOV 12, 2011
500ml can pours a darkish brown somewhat clear not opaque, foamy head and lively carbonation. Aroma of caramel, hint of toffee, some fruit notes. A little bitter, with some sour clean finish. Altogether ok, after drinking the 500ml I don’t feel much, maybe the low alcohol.

chinchill (2718) - South Carolina, USA - APR 20, 2015
500 ml bottle with a BB date stamp of 31 Jan. 2016. Poured deep red-amber with a decent size tan head that displayed very good retention and left ample lacing on the glass. Feel: medium-full body with medium carbonation. Flavor: lightly hops such that the hops are obvious but the ale is just mildly bitter and about equally malty and hoppy. O: wel crafted but not very interesting or complex

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Canette de 500 ml. Dégustée le 25 septembre 2011 (shaker). Bière limpide rousse. Col mince blanc crème, peu persistant. Très effervescente, bulles moyennes. Douce, peu sucrée, assez amère. Saveur un peu âcre de noix huileuses, plutôt sèche en finale. Manque de punch, plutôt fade.
