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.

Freaky_tiki (524) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 29, 2014
When your barmaid brings you this pour it’ll be deep amber with a half finger cap. Aroma is muted. The big uh-oh here is the taste. What in the world is with that coppery blood in the mouth profile? Not cool. Could be good but wow. No thanks.

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 28, 2014
Dégustée en fût au Pub Italia à Ottawa le 14 juillet 2011. Bière blonde limpide tirant sur le orange. Col mince blanc persistant. Assez effervescente, bulles fines. Légère odeur de noix de Grenoble. Très douce, assez sucrée, amère en finale. Saveur légère de noix, d’huile de noix. Très bonne, rafraîchissante. Sucre bien présent mais ne ressort pas trop. Corps moyen.

Six pack from Big Red Liquor store, Indianapolis. Pours a copper/amber body with minimal off-white head. Tight, sifting lace on the glass. The nose is malty with caramel notes. Flavors include more malt, dough, caramel, light toast, and an astringent alcohol bite in the finish. Medium body and full carbonation. Drinkable, but nothing much going on here. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A nice clear amber that goes down smooth. Refreshing after taste and smooth taste make it a perfect match for pub food. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
