On tap at the British Beer Company’s Hyannis location. Pours a caramel ruby amber with a medium sized white head. Toast and malt, light grain on the nose. Toast and grain, crackery and grainy. Light caramel and toast, more grain. Soft easy bitterness on the finish.

MaBeer1972 (1246) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 2, 2010
On tap at the Lobster Pot in P-Town. Came in with only minor lacing around the glass. However, the aroma is nice and the flavor is good any malty with low to moderate carbonation. A very smooth drinking amber. Just my thing! - I can’t wait to get down to the area again to pick up some more.

Zymurgeist2 (873) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
Pours a maple brown/red with a white head that collars. Lots of sweet malt on the aroma. Malt in the forefront gives way to a balance of malt and earthy hops. Mouthfeel is zesty carbonation.

ben4321 (3563) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Location: I’ve had this one at quite a few different restaurants/bars around Cape Cod over the years, this rating is from a draft I had on 10/6/09 at a restaurant in Hyannis

Aroma: A nice toasted malty and caramel nose
Appearance: Pours a nice dark amber color
Flavor: Tasty mostly malt, light hop flavor
Palate: Smooth, medium body, easy drinking
Overall Impression: I think this one is a pretty nice draft red that I try to have at least once or twice every time I make it down to the Cape.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2009
My Bottom Line:
This clean and nourishing Amber Ale develops chewy caramelized and toasted cereals atop minutious wooden hops and their whispering bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the dark red.
-The malt profile is this beer’s best asset, imho.
-Light fruity esters roam within.
-This is very drinkable; Québécois beer lovers would liken it to the best generic "Rousse" ales around the province.

On tap in West Yarmouth.

kubilai (111) - , Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2009
Draft in Sandwich. Nice reddish color. Not much aroma. Light taste of nuts, caramel with a fruity end ( pears? ) . Soft bitter aftertaste. Not bad. Would be great to find it in Quebec...

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - MAR 12, 2009
(Draft) Pours lightly hazy reddish amber wirh a finger of light biege head that recedes to a thin lasting cap. Aroma of light caramel and fruit. Mouthfeel fairly smooth, just a bit pebbly, a bit dryish toward finish. Nice well-retained light rings and sheets of lacing. Flavor of light caramel and fruit. Light-medium bitterness builds and provides a light pinch in finish. Light bitter aftertaste. Fairly pleasant.

Growler. A friend showed up at our campsite with a jug of this stuff and it really hit the spot. One of the better red ales I have had, Can’t wait to try some other stuff from this brewery.
