Guys, I like this beer. Itís a mainstream ale that tastes good and you can get real loaded off of it. Grad sleepover - I drank this stuff. Worked great

Now THIS is a good ale. The flavour is nice and full with caramel(I think) but it goes down really smooth too. Canít go wrong with this stuff if you want something other than plain ol kokanee!

First found this beer in BAnnf, and was pleased to find it at home in Winnipeg. Was sad to drink one of my last two bottles, but it just winked at me when I opened the beer fridge.

We had this beer on tap the first night at Jasper Park Lodge in Canada. Maybe it was the incredible views, wonderful smell, and tranquility of Jasper but this beer was great. An amber colored ale with a slightly strong but pure and clean taste.

Red amber color, large head. Matly and mildly hoppy. A medium bodied ale. Some nut-brown flavor. Milder tasting. Mouthfeel is a little thin and round. Finish is smooth and clean. Aftertaste is slightly malty. Somewhat reminiscent of a mild English ale. Nice taste.

Very good considering it is a Labatts product. The appearance and aroma lead you to believe that the beer has a stronger and more lasting flavor. Good starter beer for those who are unsure about darker beers. Better than the usual beer brought in for Friday afternoons at the office!

Deep copper in color, clear and has a decent 2 finger off-white cap with moderate retention....good lacing on the glass..medium-high carbonation. Aroma gives off light berry tones over mild caramel malt and some citrus hopping. Medium to light body, slick mouth feel. Caramel malts up front with the unmistakable piney tang of Pacific NW Willamette and Nugget hops. Finish is wet where you can taste the licorice and toffee tastes which prevail over the metallic twang of the Yakima valley hops. Not really a brown ale but a NW variation. A very decent ale from a brewer most people write off as a Labatt maco brewer.

***review from May 5, 2007***
Nice deep crystal clear copper brew with minor effervesance and a quick fizz-up / quick death cap with no lacing. The aroma is on the mild side; at least it is not offensive. The dominant smell is of the sweet lightly toasted malts. as well as a touch of fruitiness and an initial short-lived weak rootbeer quality. Taste is pleasant with notable hops that leave some spicy bite but mainly the sweet light toasted malts with a faint caramel flavour . Donít forget a touch of metallic flavour that actually isnít terrible. I like the bitterness throughout - it does have a nice bite to it. Mouthfeel is smooth with fine carbonation and a lasting, pleasant bitter after taste. that surges mid-sip and then gradually fades. Light to medium bodied. Good easy drinking, smooth and mild beer that I would leave on the counter for awhile to max out the flavours.
