UPDATED: SEP 17, 2014 bottle. Poured deep red almost brown with a thin tan head. Caramel malt nose, a touch of alcohol. Medium body, creamy carbonation, tart dry finish. Fruity malt flavour with a roasted/smokey note, coppery metallic aftertaste.

Metalchopz (2724) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 22, 2013
6-pack from the LCBO. Pours a clean copper colour with a big frothy light-beige head that lasts a while gives out a few bubbly lace. Great fruity roasted malt nose with some coffee at first, and a little nutty. Decent fruity malt taste with a little of the nuts and mild hop bittering things a bit. This is quite a nice red ale. One of the better ones I have had for this style.

Renamed Spark House Red Ale - Pours dark red-brown with thin beige head. Aromas of fruit, nuts, chocolate, caramel with a little grassy hops. Medium body with light carbonation. Slightly hoppier in the taste than on the nose, especially toward the finish.

Lake Of Bay’s:Spark House Red Ale 5% Read and carbinaded with some head. Smell is like cherry and chocolate. Taste is the same with some barley and a little hop tingle but the taste show up better and more as I drink it. Nice offering.cheers

HogTownHarry (6371) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2012
August 27, 2011 - on draught at The 2011 Golden Tap Awards @ BeerBistro. Why do I bother? Fairly deep ruby-amber with a fast-diminishing frothy off-white head. Smells like sugary paper with weeds and a little medicinal fruit flavouring. Taste is the same, just not as sweet, more harsh floral bitterness. Still and watery body and mouthfeel, unpleasant aftertaste and essentially no carbonation - not good.

rob6239 (677) - 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.
