Lubiere (9728) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2012
A nice copper amber ale with a thin creamy compact mocha head. In aroma, decent butterscotch malt and caramel, woody maple. In mouth, a sweet maple and butterscotch malt with faint grassy hops, oily mouthfeel, medium bodied, a tad too sweet but decent. However, this listing should be re-listed under the new name, Scottish Ale...

Boutip (4636) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 3, 2012
Bottle: Poured a clear copper color ale with a nice thick white foamy head with good retention and some very good lacing. Aroma consists of grain and dry cereal notes with light hoppy dry bitter notes. Taste is also a mix between some caramel malt with dry bitter notes and some unrefined cereal notes. Body is about average for style with great carbonation. There some unrefined grain taste that didn’t really do it for but at least they were offset by some of the caramel note and the dry bitter finish.

Spab (2241) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2012
500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear dark amber colour with modest-sized off-white head. Aroma is lots of sweet caramel and lightly toasty grains with a gentle hoppiness. Flavour has loads of caramel sweetness with again a slight toastiness and a light herbal hoppiness. Average body. Not particularly balanced but drinkable.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 2, 2012
500 ml bottle from LCBO. Deep amber pour with a thin head. Lots of sweet caramel along with a bit of soft sweet fruity hoppiness. There’s a touch of sweetness and some light fruit. A lot of toasted caramel malt. Decent pale ale - even if it’s got too much caramel malt.

Bottle. Poured clear golden yellow with small head. Aroma and taste is of light grains, hay and grass. Not bad. Would have again.

ddenomme (36) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2011
Purchased at North Bay LCBO, never heard of it before. Pleasantly surprised - a nice ale. Odd for a pale ale but is copper-coloured and nearly red. Smooth palate, medium bitter, long finish. Nice deep and round mouthfeel.
