This deep red ale deftly balances rich malt flavours of toast and toffee with subtle spicy hop aromas and a cleansing bitterness. One of our original brews, this beer makes a great introduction to the enticing flavours of craft beer and is also very versatile for pairing with food.

2015/09/24 - Pours a clear, dark mahogany colour with a thick, fluffy, khaki head thy slowly reduces and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is toffee, mild roast, grass, spices and mild floral hops. Taste is moderately sweet caramel, mild roast, spice, and mildly bitter floral hops. Mouthfeel is a tad thin with average carbonation and a crisp drying finish. A little watery, but not terrible. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

La bière est rouge profond tout en étant parfaitement filtrée et translucide. De magnifiques reflets couleur rubis scintillent malgré l’éclairage tamisé de ma cuisine. Une superbe tête mousseuse à souhait, riche, onctueuse et, persistante et collante couronne ce liquide très alléchant. Alors là BRAVO à cette brasserie qui présente un liquide aux allures absolument irréprochables! Le nez est très malté. En fait ça sent carrément le mash. Les houblons sont malheureusement très mal représentés. Arômes de caramel, de sucre et de pain. En bouche, le liquide offre une belle rondeur de par la dominante maltée. Effervescence moyenne et densité agréable. Les saveurs, encore une fois, manque d’attaque houblonnée. Non pas que j’eusse souhaité une bière houblonnée à l’extrême, mais un meilleur équilibre au niveau des arômes. Encore le fameux caramel qui revient et de la céréale à profusion. Finale plutôt courte et sans arrière-goût. De loin ma bière préférée de cette brasserie et somme tout une très bonne red ale!

Consommé pendant les vacances au Nouveau-Brunswick. Une rousse avec une légère mousse. Petit goût de caramel. Légère amertume. Pas mauvais, mais pas incroyable non plus.

500 ml bottle from a four-pack from Sobeys Liquor, served in a large lager glass. I love the odd, broad, stubby shape of the voluminous bottle. Pours a deep reddish-amber and a fluffy tan cap, leaving pretty webs of lace. Aroma is comprised of sweet malt, caramel, and somewhat floral/herbal hops. Spicy, too. Flavor has mild caramel and malt, with a broad span of almost pumpkin-like, definitely spicy hops, and a dark cherry wine-ish character. Mouthfeel is a little thinner than expected, and has an overall light dryness. Quite good, but I think more prominent caramel flavor would improve this ale. A minor quibble, though, for a satisfyingly spicy brew, perfect for winter.

On tap at Gahan - deep red with a nice head and a wall of lacing. Detected the caramel in the aroma. Malty taste with a medium body and a smooth finish.
