I LOVE this beer! Beautiful spicy, piney taste with fruit, citrus aromas. Could us a bit more malt body, but overall a great session beer.

341ml bottle. Maybe I got an older bottle, but this tasted like a slightly skunked macro ale. Over-carbonated, thin. All sweet malts and I couldn’t detect any of the alleged C hops.

Pours a lovely dark amber with a foamy head. Nice citrus and resin aroma. Flavour is very rich, a bit of smoke, resiny bitterness, nice malt balance. It doesn’t stand out over some craft ale, but this is a very sessionable and enjoyable brew. I would cheerfully buy more to enjoy over a weekend.

Trev (1935) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Can: amber pour, medium lasting head. Aroma is caramel/toffe, cherrywood, toasted malt, light nutty. Plummy, cherry fruit. Light orange citrus. Very busy and disjointed seeming. Flavour, toasted malt, nutty, woody hop, toffee sweetness and light nutty/woody bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ambrée, elle laisse des traces baveuses au verre lorsque sa mousse se résorbe. Un nez herbacé, mentholé même, ainsi que caramélisé et malté. Une agréable amertume ressort du mur de malt, qui est très épais. C’est aussi poivré et minéral par moment. Au camping, c’était appréciable. (1156-300714)

Can. Light orange-amber. Thinnish caramel with tea-like earthy hops. Pretty unexciting.

ciaranc (875) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 12, 2014
12 oz bottle from Redmonds. Clear amber, soapy off white head. Bready malt nose, some floral hops. Flavour is biscuit caramel with a decent sharp hop bite. Medium body, fizzy enough. Decent if uncomplex

presario (4625) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 5, 2014
Dark amber with nice light froth. Malty nose. Woody body with nice balance. No trace of metallic and an honest beer.

RhetoricalAns (247) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2014
Can. Amber pour with a tall white, semi creamy pillow of a head , plenty of lacing. caramel and floral hop aroma, hint of wood. Taste is some caramel, metallic tang. Medium body, with soft carbonation. Better than the flagship moosehead.
