COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When your brewmaster comes up with a recipe as good as this one, you let him name the beer whatever he wants. Here’s what makes our recipe so darn good: a rich burnt orange colour, darker than most lagers, a smooth, medium body with a bold, but pleasant, hop taste, full of flavour, unlike your traditional ’cold-as-ice’ beers with no taste, made with only the best ingredients, including Canadian & English Malts, and German & Czech Hops.

Nice aroma. Nice colour with 1/4 inch head. Nice flavour for a lager and a great session brew

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - MAY 24, 2013
12 oz. bottle from Total Wine - Pours a crystal clear mahogany color with a 3/4 finger thick light tan head. Very light lacing. Aroma is faint floral hops and toasted malt. Flavor is light as the aroma. light to medium body. There is just not much here. Needs more of everything.

bhensonb (12016) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours amber/copper with an off-white head. Aroma suggests very light cola. Med body, or nearly. Flavor is slightly roasted caramel with a small amount of herb/spice hop. Seems to nail the style.

Great introductory craft beer. Good appearance, burnt orange color. Enjoyed the taste, not as hoppy as it sounds.

Not bad. Amber beer with solid flavor. Nice addition of hops give this a nice balance.

beerbill (3564) - Laurel, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Just what the world needed, another mediocre Canadian lager! On draught at The Pour House in Mountain Home, PA. Arrived to the table a clear amber with a moderate white head that left ample lace and lasted through the first half of the beer. That was the high point for this beer. Not very aromatic at all. The flavor is malt with a touch of caramel followed by some mild hops bitterness and a bit of astringency that lingers at the back of the throat after the swallow. Lacks the smoothness typically associated with lagers. Meh.

473ml can. Pours a copper colour with a thick off-white head. Smell is citrus, spices, and malt. Tastes pretty bland. Bitter with some sweetness but not as much flavour as I anticipated. A good beer nonetheless, give it a try.
