solidfunk (3896) - 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 (4701) - 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.

mansquito (3354) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Cloak and Dagger, Toronto 20oz pour ($5): Pours a dark amber color with an ok lookin’ head. Aroma is caramel malt and some hops. Taste is mosly similar. Nice amount of bitterness for an amber ale. Good flavour profile in general I would say. Easily sessionable. Not too complex, but definitely better than the run-of-the-mill amber in my opinion.

RayOhm (474) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2012
not spectacular by any means, but a pretty good easy drinking beer with a hit of mild hops. pretty good for the style

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2011
Deep brown with a touch of red. Not much of a head and a very mild aroma of malts and vanilla. A nice roasted malt flavour that exits leaving a decent bit of hops that quickly leaves the tongue. The overall impression is a good one - a beer with a decent amount of flavour that is not overpowering in any one area and that finishes nice and clean. I’ll be buying it again.

blankboy (6030) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2011
Bottle at Golden Tap Awards 2011, beerbistro. Pours a deep orange-amber with a spare diminishing off-white head. Aroma of grain, some fruit and light resiny hops. Flavour: Yup, that tastets like a "Rousse", with caramel malt, light hops and nuts. Average bodied. A little dull but it’s fine.

550ml draught
5.0% ABV
I tried this beer on draught on July 22, 2011 at "C’est What" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent ruby red colour with a creamy tan coloured head. The aroma is caramel malt, with some weak floral hop notes. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour was primarily malty, sweet caramel, and a bitter finish. Went down easy, but an average amber at best.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2011
On tap at Gambrinus Bistro.A deep and hazy amber with firey hues, and a frothy off white cap. Earthy aromas remind me of wet leaves, caramel, dark bread, some sulphur. Very malty and sweet with a rye like spicy hop bite to balance things out. Medium bodied, very creamy and soft, nice earthy finish. Good.
