HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2010
341ml bottle shared with blankboy & tupalev. Slightly hazy/oily deep gold with a decent white head. Smells very "Ontario" - clean, grainy, a nice bit of honey and fresh grassy bitterness. Clean taste - simple grain, honey & light grass. Average to light body, carbonation and linger, finishes clean. Not bad, but needs at least one of the promising characteristics to push to the fore (grassiness, grain, even the honey character).

Raistlin (109) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 19, 2011
341 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear orange with tiny white head. Aroma is toasty cereal grains with a hint of caramel and fruit. Flavour same toasty cereal grains with more caramel and fruity sweetness. Slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Decent, but a cut below their Pilsner and Dark

reebtogi (4038) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 27, 2012
341ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that dissipates quickly leaving a few spots of lace on the glass. Aroma is light caramel with some mild grass and nuts. Taste is caramel sweetness with a grassy and herbal hop bitterness. Light to medium body with light carbonation. A decent offering that is much better than your typical macro.

Reimer96 (1161) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 24, 2013
Pours a clear copper color with a fluffy off-white head that leaves a bunch of lace. Aroma of rich vienna malts, caramel, lightly toasted and clean lager characteristic. Taste is malt complexity up front with lightly toasted vienna malts and a dry finish. The caramel present in this beer isn’t too style and overall it’s a bit too clean and astringent.

Listigovers (292) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2012
If you like sweet this beer is for you. The aroma is strong and a bit ripe fruit like. The beer is very smooth and medium bodied and slightly syrupy. Aftertaste is caramelized fruit. Its good but not my favourite type.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 21, 2012
Bouteille 341ml. De couleur ambrée-dorée et claire. Nez de caramel sucré aux notes rôties et terreuses, léger de noix, de miel et de houblon herbeux aux notes florales et métalliques. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture aux faibles notes crémeuses et aqueuses. Faibles notes fruitées (agrumes) accompagné de notes de cuir terreux lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi rapidement d’un moyen goût de grains de malt caramélisés et très légèrement rôtis puis en finale l’on retrouve un léger goût de noix (voire d’arachides naturelles) asséchant avec une légère amertume de houblon herbeux ainsi que quelques notes métalliques. Post-goût moyen-court et un peu sec, légèrement amer de houblon herbeux avec un léger goût métallique, rôti et de noix.

Pours a golden clear with a thin white top and good lacing. Aroma is mostly malt and light hop. Taste is a good malt but overall fairly boring.
