Lubiere (9790) - 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...

JoeMcPhee (8314) - 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.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2010
2009-01-13. Dark amber/copper body with a modest white head. 3+ Strange aroma, tropical fruit oddness. It is not unpleasant but a bit bizarre. 6+ (Greg says winegums, which I can see.) Flavour is similar, odd fruity character like that of the aroma, mild malt core. Light bitterness. 6+ Average palate. Okay. Pleasant enough albeit a bit odd. I suspect that its not 100% but considering its practically fresh from the brewery it shouldn’t have changed much. Curious. Bottle shared by Garthicus

DuffMan (6555) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 19, 2013
What a strange little brewery-- their website says they make three different beers, but Ratebeer lists only one. This poured a dusky gold with a very foamy thick off white crown. Muted aroma of bready malts with a slightly brothy quality. Sweet caramel flavour, pretty simple really. Not sure what they were striving for here, but this plays as a pretty unremarkable amber ale.

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 4, 2010
Bottle ( 500ml ). Shared with blankboy, courtesy of garthicus, who bought it less than a week ago at the brewery. Clear bright amber, average quick-diminishing off-white frothy head. Slightly poopy grain and leaf aroma - sweet, slightly roasty; dry. Taste follows, not poopy at all, sweet roast grain, mild floral bitterness. Average body, a bit chewy and astringent, light carbonation, clean grainy linger - not bad, but not too pleased with the aroma.

blutt59 (5999) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 8, 2010
bottle, via trade with garthicus, golden amber pour with a dry pecan shell aroma, flavors are muted cardboard and caramel, maybe a little past it’s prime.

blankboy (5979) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2010
Bottle [500ml] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o garthicus. Pours a deep orange-amber with an average size lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma of toffee, also dry and a bit papery. Slightly watery flavour of caramel malt, toffee and grain. Light bitter finish. Average bodied. Not a Pale Ale at all but not bad otherwise.
