Not my taste. Looks good, and smells okay, but watery and no particular thing to mention. There is a a bit of sourness in the mouth. Hard to describe. Not for the second time.

Kind of sweet with a honey-like appearance, nose, and palate. Doesn’t quite get to caramel on the malts but there is the beginning of something sweet on the tongue. A bit of toffee. No hop presence and no bitterness to speak of. Not a particularly balanced beer. Completely forgettable. Will never purchase again, as this is an "also ran" in the crowded craft beer market.

A little bit bitter but nice. First note is very flavourful but doesn’t last long. overall nice amber coloured beer.

RhetoricalAns (385) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2014
Can. Amber pour with a minimal white head. aroma was a tad sweet, honey, biscuit. Taste was similar, touch of caramel and toasty malt. Better than their lager, fairly enjoyable.

Jayseppi (154) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2014
A lot of honey and graham cracker on the nose of this beer. This translates into the flavour as well, but the taste is too far on the sweet side with out any bitterness to balance it. Honey brown colour and a rather smooth texture. Overall it’s too sweet to really be enjoyable.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2014
Bière ambrée, limpide et coiffée d’un éphémère col blanc. Au nez, un caramel générique un peu fruité. Elle est moyennement amère et un peu acide. Elle est mince, de corps léger et se termine honnêtement sur un peu d’amertume.

[5227-20130413] 471mL can. Mildly plastic grains aroma. Slightly hazy, brown orange body with a quick foamy white head. Grainy malt flavour. Medium body. Average. (6/3/6/3/12) 3.0

lesifflebiere (1356) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 21, 2014
Boisson orangée tirant sur le brun clair, film de mousse blanche nourri par une effervescence qui semble assez importante. Odeurs de sucre d’orge, de caramel, laisse présager des saveurs de sucre brun. Au goût, relativement légère, arômes de sucre d’orge, les saveurs sont justes, le tout est très accessible, mais c’est une ambrée générique, le genre que les brasseries industrielles fabriquent. Agréable, mais rien de spécial.
