COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A very traditional Irish-style red ale brewed with pale, biscuit, chocolate and caramel malts to give this beer a round and mellow palate and remarkable drinkability. We use British and American hops in this brew to balance the malt palate and then finish the beer by adding a kiss of Lanark County maple syrup to complete the smooth and smoky-caramel tones of this beautiful Irish-style ale. Charged with a blend of Carbon-Dioxide and Nitrogen, this beer pours with a classic pub-pint "cascade" and forms a tenacious head that makes it too cool for school! Slainte !

Une visite au brewpub d’Ottawa. Une bonne bière ambrée crémeuse avec une touche de caramel et de sirop d’érable. Une finale légèrement sucrée.

Well-textured but uneventful in flavour. Creamy malt makes up most of the aroma. Pours amber with great head and lacing. Finishes with light sweetness. Creamy, soft carbonation. Tap at Ottawa brewpub.

On tap @ Mill Street Ottawa. Pours a clear reddish/brown with a rich off-white head. Aromas are grainy malts and leafiness. Tastes are sweet toffee/caramel malts and a slight bitterness on the back. Mouthfeel is full, creamy with a medium bitter feel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

On tap at the Ottawa brewpub. Copper pour. Aroma of grass, caramel, and candi sugar. Flavor of caramel, mild nuttiness, and candi sugar sweetness. Mild grass hops presence. Not bad.

worldbeertaste (1596) - AUSTRIA - AUG 27, 2012
Clear rich amber with a nice solid lasting offwhite thick head. Nice smooth caramel malt, cereal biscuit, kind of like a nice English bitter. Smooth and full rich body. Buffer caramel malt balance with a biscuit and sweet candy sugar end. Some light bitterness on the finish. The bitterness feels a bit stale.

Metalchopz (2197) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 15, 2012
Enjoyed at the Ottawa Brewpub with the GF on our first night there, with the ribs special and some nachos. Pours a caramel-amber colour with a beautiful off-white head that is creamy, long lasting and adds dirty lacing. The aromas are quite mild with some sweet malts, hops and cereal grain notes. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. The taste has a bit more bite, but still mild with caramel malt, good grain in the finish and slight hop adding some bitterness and dryness. A pretty nice, easy-drinking, creamy Irish ale with help of the nitro.

rejtable (1222) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 16, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2012 Update: Nitro tap version from Ottawa brewpub... Pours amber with a small creamy head. Lots of cereal and sweet malt. Creamy in the mouth. Nice enough beer. Cask version of the beer from brewpub in Toronto. Peachy with some cereal and maybe a hint of caramel in it as well. No noticeable carbonation, and pours with no lacing either. Was ok, but I like the nitro version better, I think.

On tap at the Ottawa brewpub. Nice amber body with a good white creamy head. Fresh malty/hoppy aroma with some grainy and piney hints. Taste carries grainy notes and ends with a decent bitter/grainy finish. Very drinkable.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Pretty nice red pour with an off-white head. Aroma is bready, biscuit, some slight residual sweetness. Not much hop character but that’s to be expected for the style. Pretty standard. I could drink a pitcher of this and not be unhappy.
