473ml can pours amber in color with a 2 finger off-white head that has decent retention and leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is grainy and grassy with some hints of caramel. Taste is a grassy hop bitterness with a grainy malt sweetness. There is some undesirable flavors that linger after each sip. Not a particularly good brew.

A very average and uninspired amber ale. A malty sweetness with just a touch of hops, caramel and some grain notes. Not the worst thing to drink.

Not the strongest or most interesting beer in the world. What there was of flavour and aroma was pleasant enough, hence my completely average review.

not a bad beer. slightly bitter - nice color and head. Nothing to rush out and buy - but not a bad beer either

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2011 Bottle. An okay amber ale. Red and a little sweet. This is passable but nothing special.

piscator34 (2117) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 24, 2011
Bottled sample. Amber in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas are of caramel malt, burnt sugar, and wet grains. Flavours are a mix of caramel sweetness and more wet grains. A bit of a tinny note on the finish. A bit of mouth coating sweetness too. Nothing overly offensive, but really just another bland beer from Fort Garry.

Bottle. Aromas of malt and grassy notes. Taste is similar. Lots of malts and some grass. Mild bitterness. Not bad. Creamy body with a well balanced carbonation level.

341ml brown bottle. Amber coloured brew with a thin creamy white head. Aroma is slightly lemony with some malt sweetness. Flavour has some up front nutty malt, very slight citrus hop note, light malt sweetness. Fairly dry and grainy finish with faint distant grass hop notes. Moderate carbonation, medium body. Fairly average Canadian styled "red" ale.

markas101 (1994) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 4, 2009
33 cl bottle, Winnipeg, MB, Canada. Almost opaque murky dark amber. No visible head, visible carbonation. Faint caramel aroma. Slightly sour first sip, giving way to a slightly bitter burn and sweet malt and some nuttiness. Lacks oomph or subtlety,fairly standard but drinkable.
