JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2006
Tap at Barcade. Amber beer with a very creamy white head. Lovely aroma with lots of flowery/spicy noble hop aroma over a soft earthy malt base. A hint of wheaty spice as well. Flavours are similar, with nothing earthshattering, but an very tasty balance of spicy hops and a dry finish that make you craze another mouthful. The definition of quaffability. Great session beer.

Sample at the Ping Pong, Foosball, and Great Beer tasting on 03/03/2012. Pours a slightly hazy yellow-amber color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit and caramel malt. Light body with flavors of toasted malt, caramel and ripe fruit. The finish is sweet and malty with a slightly hoppy aftertaste. Pretty average overall.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 30, 2005
On tap at The Great Lost Bear in Portland, ME:
Interesting caramel maltiness coalesces with the peachy fruitiness...The hops’ soapiness detract from their citrusy fruitiness...Well-rounded, with a low but prickly carbonation, a simple, run-of-the-mill amber ale...

Hazy dark golden color with a thin covering of off-white head. Has an earthy sweet caramel malty aroma. Body starts with a touch of sweet toasty malt and a decent bittering earthy hoppy balance. Finishes lightly sticky and bittersweet. A drinkable, ok beer.
