A family favourite, served at my brother's wedding next to the brewery! A darker ale but not too dark. Not much head or lattice but a good bold flavour. I actually enjoy it best from the bottle.

341 ml bottle. Pours a clear coppery amber with a short lived white head. Aroma is caramel malt, biscuit, dryness. Flavor is caramel, biscuit, sweet, fresh, fruity, some pepper. Finish has good herbal and earthy hops. Along with dark fruits. Lingering fruit flavor. Body is thin, average carbonation. Good, refreshing and easy drinking.

If youre from ontario you already had this and really dont need to read my review. A mildly interesting, lightly hopped ale that will neither offend or excite. Worth ordering when your other options are steamwhistle or bud.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From keg in a Toronto hotel, served so cold with a glass with ice on it! Just what I needed for an ale when it’s below freezing outside...
So the review may be a bit harsh given the chill. Amber red in colour. Quite a malty background, some bitter grainy malt, then a fair load of hops. Tasted ok, maybe a little chemically and clunky. Was surprised to see how good the other reviews are, could retry in a more amenable setting at some point.

Meh all around. Looked great. Got a little metallic flavour off the nose and initial palate (most likely from the cap/bottle)

First drink coming off the wagon - last time I didn’t drink for 12 days I was about 14 years old - is disappointing. Look: I’ve had this beer many times but this is my first time rating it & let me tell you this is not the beer you want to welcome you back to beer world. Taste is complex malt & cold coffee. Best option at horseshoe tavern at kid Congo powers show.
