Quevillon (2553) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
473 ml can purchase at the Hawkesbury LCBO on Decembre 12, 2013. Light amber, thin head. Aroma of malted barley slightly sweet, notes of berries. The taste is quite the same thing, a touch sour, a little bitter. Well it is your micro that taste like macro but don’t tell them that!

Strangebrewer (903) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2013
can. Poured clear amber-orange with a thin white head. Sweet malt aroma, very mild. Mouthfeel is clean and crisp, light-average body. Bready malt flavour, sweet notes of orange and a touch of grassy hops. Nice session.

tompete (217) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2013
473 ml can. Pours golden orange with a beige head. Aroma is of darker malts, very rich. Flavour is even maltier with a hint of caramel. Finish is just slightly sweet, with some grain bitterness. Body is a little thin though.

northropfrye (2325) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 12, 2013
Amber body, kind of looks like an IPA, the head doesn’t last long, though. Sweet grainy aroma, peanuts. Taste is sweet but with a nice balance of hops, too. Not a lot of carbonation, but still a fairly assertive palate. Not bad.

FishBizkit (234) - Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 1, 2013
473 ml can from LCBO. Clear copper with a fair off-white foam. Aroma of Roasted nuts, slightly earthy caramel/toffee, very slightly fruity, a little sweet-smelling, not bad. Palate is Medium body, moderate-full effervescence. Flavor is slightly fruity, more roasted notes; dry with limited bitterness and a reasonably full roasted finish. Not bad. Certainly roasted malt-forward. -Fish!

Radek Kliber (6519) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUN 6, 2013
Can 473 ml
Aroma: woody , nutty as well musky. Slight spicy mushroom like backing.
Look: poured as clear amber with medium top. Short lived. 2+
Taste etc: medium body, slightly oily. Nutty tad astringent yet with decent British twist. Good to see solid malt base. Skipping aroma , quiet refreshing.

Frothmeister (587) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2013
473ml can. Pours a burnt caramel with an off-white head. Aroma is caramel, tropical fruit, and light floral notes. The taste is slightly watery with caramel, mineral notes, decent...UNTIL...the cheap domestic beer finish, and the awful bitter taste that reminds me far too much of penicillin. Get rid of that finish, and this is a solid session beer. As is, blech.

Gorbalev (2958) - Ontario, CANADA - JAN 19, 2013
Can, LCBO 3 pack. Light amber pour, small white head. Aroma is sweet and a little fruity. Taste - sweet malt with a bit of a metallic hint to it. Body is quite watery. Some light hops in there as well. Really tastes like a watered down Hockley Dark. Did not care for this one.
