Ferris (5000) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 28, 2014
Draft - Caramel and light grains. Clear copper with a nice beige head. Malty light cocoa and a rich finish. Nice but a little odd for an amber.

KansaiBeerLvrs (2361) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 16, 2014
On tap at the Ottawa beer fest. A clear light gold with a soapy head & a earthy malty aroma. Medium-light bodied with a sweet somewhat sugary taste plus some grassy/earthy notes. A boring lager.

RhetoricalAns (368) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2014
Pint on a nice sunny day. Clear amber pour with a medium light beige head that leaves good lacing. Malty heavy aroma, toffee, honey, bread. Taste is caramel, fairly mild hop bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Quite a nice amber.

sudomorph (711) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2014
341ml bottle. Pours a crystal clear, caramel/amber with a one finger, off white head that laces well. Aroma has notes of caramel, bread, and a touch of fruityness. Perhaps an English yeast. Taste is balanced. Slight bread, caramel, a hint of hop spicy and chocolate/roast, and a short aftertaste. Medium body with a low-medium carbonation. Clean and refreshing in the mouth. Overall an easy drinking brew. Mild flavours that would probably not offend anyone.

Freaky_tiki (642) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2014
Pour at the cottage off of Lake of Bays comes on yet another cloudy day. My goal tomorrow is to hit that cool little pizza place in Dorest & grab one of their fire tower pizzas & a can of crisp pilsner & have us a picnic. Wait, why am I writing about this in my beer rating? Cuz there’s nothing much going on here. Pours meh into the glass. It’s sweet & malty, with a suggestion of powdery chocolate. No worries, as I’m only going to drink 1/3 of this can before I stick it up the ass of a chicken & throw it onto the BBQ with another, more tasty brew in hand.

Niall73 (1869) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 9, 2014
Pours a dark amber brown with an off white head. Toffee, brown toast and dark fruit aroma. Light body, medium carbonation. Light rum, caramel cake, some lemon, light metal on the finish... Not great.

Frothmeister (587) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 19, 2014
473ml can. Pours clear, and the colour of raspberry juice, with a pale beige head. Aroma is malt heavy, with a light fruity note, cocoa, and light straw. As for taste, cocoa, dusty straw, and light acidity up front with some hard water/mineral notes, and light coffee in the mildly bitter finish. It’s not bad at all, but maybe a little more "brown ale" or "porter" in flavour profile then a "red".
