rob6239 (580) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2012
Pours very clear and clearly red from bottle. Aroma is good with some yeasty bready notes. Taste was a bit lacking and thin in character - almost seemed a touch watery.

thorongil2 (1078) - , Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2012
(bottle) clear dark amber with small light brown head; aromas of stewed fruit, bit of citrus, bit of roast; balanced flavour with long light bitter finish; resembles more a light stout than an amber ale

gilvanblight (761) - Windsor, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 17, 2012
Dark clear red pour, lots of clingy white head. Grassy hope nose. Starts off wet but goes dry quickly. Nice mix of tastes. A bit of malts, lots of raisin. Low carbonation. Very easy to drink. Something sweet in the finish. Clove.

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Dany I believe, probably in payment for smuggling lizards into Canada for him. You have to tape those little guys in places no one wants to think about. Pours a deep browned ruby with a thin beige tan head. Sweet malt and a touch of chocolate on the nose. Medium bodied, chocolaty, sweet malt and cocoa. Easy drinking, soft malt, leading into a gentle bitterness on the finish. Good stuff.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2012
Deep ruddy amber pour. The nose is lightly caramelly with a touch of woody/earthy hoppiness. Moderately hopped with a touch of caramel sweetness. Pretty well-balanced actually. Decent session brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jimmay (807) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 3, 2012
341 ml bottle. Pours brownish red in colour, moderate off white head. Nothing special here, a decent ale. Prob on the malty side of the balance beam. Not bad.

WheatKing (1162) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 26, 2012
Nothing really special about this one. A nice balance but pretty plain. So by nice balance I’m not talking about two pianos on opposite ends of a see-saw perfectly cancelling out each others’ weight, more like a young giraffe walking. Toward the brown side of the amber scale.

Bendrixian (988) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 13, 2012
red colour but not clear, so not overfiltered. aromas of caramel and slight roast. Classic. hoppy taste and bitter/roasty note as well. a very good session beer!

solidfunk (2992) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 12, 2012
A really decent red. Smells like caramel roast malt and light hops. Steady foam that lasts through whole pint. Taste has a light sourness to it. Beer has a really dark maroon colour. On cask at Castro’s Lounge.

Boutip (4490) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2012
Bottle: Poured a medium brown color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of light dry caramel malt with some light cereal notes. Taste is also a mix between some non-descript cereal notes with some dry caramel malt. Body is average with good carbonation. Middle of the road amber ale.
