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.

lesifflebiere (1413) - 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.

Quevillon (2613) - 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!

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 (233) - 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 (2518) - 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.

473ml can. A decent amber. Somewhat buttery. Aroma of toffee, earth, florals, toasty malt. Mediocre overall.

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 (6602) - 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.
