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.

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 20, 2014
2014-07-19. Crisp dark amber body with a large foamy beige head and moderate lace. Aroma is mild, dusty malt, noticeable crystal malt, light toasty accents. Flavour is similar, sweet malty core, notes of caramel and crystal malt with dryish toasty accents. Moderate bitterness throughout keeps it fairly balanced. Average bodied palate is fairly carbonated. Much better than expected, could use a bit more character to the hops but it is relatively quaffable. Can from the LCBO, Toronto.

Can from LCBO. Pours amber with an off white head. Caramel, bread, toast aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Lemon, toffee, light wood, brown toast and a little orange. Pretty dull all in all.

473 mL can. Pours a dark caramel with a tiny head that disappears almost immediately. No lacing. Hoppy aroma, smells pretty interesting. On the palate is lots of carbonation, some bitterness, some hops. There's a long fairly pleasant finish. For being brewed by a big brewer, this is pretty tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lubiere (9790) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2014
A golden amber ale with a thick frothy mocha head, lacing and nice. In aroma, smooth caramel malt with light British floral hops, OK. In mouth, a decent ale with light caramel malt, faint foral hops, a bit thin, but overall, decent. Can from LCBO.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 13, 2014
Can. 473 ml style bitches! Copper body pours a thick foam of white head. Malty nose hints at burnt sugar and toast, with a nutty undertone. Sweet, mildly bitter, but overall its a bit too sweet for me. Medium bodied with a soft bitter finish. Ok, I just cant get over the sweetness.

pintbypint (2567) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 8, 2014
Poured from the bottle at Edmonton Craft Beer Fest ’14. Deep golden hue, clear. Small and short lasting cap. Caramel nose. Taste had grain and caramel and pale ale malts. Light hops at the end. Reminded me more of an English pale ale. Overall not bad.

Eructoblaster (2958) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2014
On tap at NDHQ Sgts/WOs Mess (Ottawa, ON). Amber/copper body with a thin off white foamy head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma with nutty and some woody hints. Taste is slightly dominated by hoppy flavors. It carries grainy notes and ends with a short bitter finish. Not bad.

reebtogi (4109) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 1, 2014
Pint on tap at Beer Revolution’s Edmonton location pours a pale amber color with finger of white head that leaves some spotty lacing behind. Aroma is light fruits and caramel with hints of citrus. Taste is malty sweet with a light citrus and grassy hop bitterness. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. A basic amber ale which is a decent session ale, but nothing more.
