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.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2012 Bottle: Poured a deep burnished copper with ruddy highlights, smallish cap poor retention, modest lacing, moderately carbonated. Aroma is typical Brit: Toffee, toasty Marris malt over some leafy goldings. Thin palate. Toasty caramel malty in front, minimal hop balance, wet thin body, light bittering in the finish, Too sweet for a Pale or ESB, Not enough body for a wee heavy. With brand new brewing equipment they should do better than this 2 dimensional off style ale. Mildly interesting but needs work. UPDATE.............. the reworked recipie is a decent cross between a highland scottich ale with micro brew attitude...rich copper-red color, big puffy cap, aroma is demure with toased cereal tones fruity esters - taste is roasty-toasty-caramel malty in front with good hop bite - goes to a clean finish punctuated by a nutty-toasty maltiness. A great session ale. I will alway have a few in the fridge when it is available
