Originally rated November 2005. This beer is now brewed by Sleeman Maritimes and I think only found in the maritimes, Canada. Thanks to Pedro for sharing this one with me. Pours a clean amber colour with decent sloppy lacing. Nice caramel aromas with some hoppy nose. The mouthfeel is semi-watery. The taste, I would say, is the weakest point of this brew, but still quite decent for a cream ale. Mild bitterness, alcohol and grain malt flavours. A slightly better than average cream ale.

Copper amber ale with a thin white head. In aroma, a sweetish malts with notes of iodine, and cinnamon notes. In mouth, a sweet lightly spiced caramel malt, fusel alcohol, short in mouth. Not very good. Early 2007.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2007 I must say I don’t enjoy the aroma it smells kinda like wet dog. An intresting amber colour. It looks like a beer that would have a big rich taste but honestly it really dosent and I like that. It is kind of sweet and has a pleasent aftertaste. Pretty decent find

One of the 2 beers that wasn’t brewed by Gahan that I tried while in PEI. Very odd beer. I liked it for all the wrong reasons.

One of the Ice house ales I encountered in Lunenberg paired up with a plate of oysters. Poured a bright copper color with a 1 finger tan cap fair retention and lacing.....very mild aroma; smokey caramel and some grass. Medium body fair malt spine smokey-sweet character mild mouth feel. Started sweetish, caramel, friuty, then a tad of toast and smoke, fast wet clean finish and mild biscuit after tastes. One of the best commercial beers I have tasted in NS.

This actually poured an alright colour when I wasn’t drinking it from the bottle. Nice bright amber colour with a frothy white short-lasting head. The aroma is slightly fruity with a sweet malty presence. The body is fine - slightly on the sweet side with a mild hop presence. At least it’s clean.

This cream ale poured adark yellow colour with a little off white head. First to the nose was this metallic scent then came the scent of dark malts with brown sugar. A little nuttiness to it also. First sip was pretty good with flavours of molassass and wine. Palate was not bad but syrupy.

On tap at Maxwell’s Plum (Halifax, NS). Amber body with heavy carbonation and a decent white foamy head. Its malty aroma carries nutty notes. Malty/hoppy taste is enjoyable, but lacks complexity. Ends with a good bittersweet finish. Good everyday ale.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2006
(Bottle) Purchased a 12-pack at the PEI LCC for $19. Pours a foamy, white lasting head and a highly active carbonated amber body. A silky malted nose and a creamy nutty flavour that never transcended into the ’tasty range’. It finished with a milk elixir texture that disagreed with my tongue, stomach and decending colon --- thus causing me to deposit the remaining 11 bottles in the Delta Prince Edward hotel rooms of my colleagues.

Tap at Maxwell’s Plum, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Good foamy head that didn’t last. Amber color (I was expecting a black beer). Some malty aroma. A nutty after taste. Good beer.
