Lubiere (9440) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2011
A reddish brown ale with a thin lacing moka head. In aroma, pleasant nutty malt and floral hops, lightly resinous, chocolate notes. In mouth, a nice nutty and lightly peaty malt, with good hopping, more like a brown than a rousse....but very nice. Bottle from Probstk, thanks Karl.

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

jercraigs (7348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2011
2011-04-30. Crisp dark amber-brown body, nice creamy beige head and lace. Flavour has a grainy astringency to it that is echoed in the aroma, where a very dry malt character meets old roasty coffee. Light bitterness and mild toasty malt character in the flavour. Average palate. Pleasant toasty malt accents fail to redeem the grainy character of the malt for me. Just okay. Tap at Volo, Toronto

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.

DuffMan (6167) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 26, 2013
On tap @ Cottage Grill. Dark copper colour with a creamy tan had that laces thickly. Aroma of chocolate and toasty malt. Caramel flavour, light toast, light fruit, mild bitterness.

HogTownHarry (5984) - 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.

blankboy (5803) - 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.

mabel (5371) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2011
[3713-20110430] Tap. Very peanuty butter aroma has just a hint of used coffee grounds. Clear, dark amber red body with a quick foamy white head. Metallic peanuts flavour is mostly just generic grains. Medium body. Average. (6/3/6-/3/11) 2.9

presario (4536) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2013
Day 8. Advent Calendar. Dirty very dark amber with thick head and lace. Aroma is dusty without much profile. Metallic, off flavour. Does not taste clean. Second mouthful is a tentative decision. Can’t convince myself this was intentional.

Boutip (4509) - 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.
