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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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...

(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.

Draft on the cape. A nice hoppy beer. Pours a nice reddish color. Very easy to drink when cold, gets a little to bitter as it gets warm.

(tap)A nice looking amber ale. I tasted some sort of tree nut in the taste. It smelled of turtle candy, with chocolate caramel and pecans.

drubel2’s parents brought a growler of this back from Cape Cod for him. He game me a glass to try. Pours a nice mahogany color with a one finger width white fluffy head. There was not much to the aroma... a little bit of floral accents and a bit of caramel. The taste was very refreshing with hints of caramel, nuts and sugar. This beer was good... nothing too out of the ordinary though. I am glad I was able to try this...

Had on tap in various restaurants in Orleans. A very tasty beer and definitely reccomended. Don’t let it get too warm though, or it’ll start to taste a bit too sweet and overpowering.
