[on tap at Ossawippi Express in Orillia, ON] Almost clear, copper with a tawny white ring and lace. Excellent malt aroma with subtle raisiny lemon hops accentuating the caramel (which was not toffee-ish at all). Unfortunately, the flavour doesn’t hold up to the inviting flavour, but it’s still quite quaffable stuff: crips cream ale with a touch of caramel ending with some woody flavour that spices up the moderate bitterness. Perhaps a hint of diacetyl as well, that only helps with the flavour. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Clean.

lowg (148) - Scarborough, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2006
341ml bottle, singles bin at LCBO. Poured amber with a thick off-white head that lasted pretty long with some decent lacing. Aroma was sweet bready. Taste was a little nutty, a little sweet, kinda bland; not much bittermess to the finish but clean and crisp. Overall nothing special - a typical micro Canadian cream ale. Above average.

Tessic (933) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 18, 2006
This cream ale poured med amber colour with a white head. A nice scent with sugary malts and a bit of caramel. First sip was watery and bitter at the same time. Hoppy to the palate with a bitter finish. Not bad but not the best cream ale I’ve had.

Boutip (5185) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2006
Bottle: Poured a yellowish ale with a nice smooth head with average retention. Creamy palate with nice floral malt and low hops presence. Body is slightly above average. Overall, this is above your run of the mills Ontario easy drinking beer but it isn’t a great beer either.

Gorbalev (3000) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2006
Bottle at The Rhino. Very dark yellow, very small head. Decent flavour - dry tasty malt, lightly hopped. Grainy malt aroma is not great though. Very drinkable; summer quencher. Better than most Ontario versions of this style.

Sammy (9541) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 9, 2005
likely reformulated since these early reviews. Smell originally malty and fruity, then plain after warming up to room temperature. Short lived head. Creamy and malty, with a spot of fruit. OK with dinner at the end of a summer day.

Nice fruity notes, hints caramel. Smooth and mild come to mind. Not watery like Sleeman cream ale, this is much better

threesheets (11) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - APR 11, 2005
This is a great cream ale. Pours an off-white with nice carbonation and malt aroma. Well-balance..with a predominant carmel note. One of the best from the micros in Ontario.

Pours a slightly dark amber body with a mediuym sized frothy head. Aromas are pine, hops, citrus, and some malts. taste is sweet, hoppy and bitter, bready. Nice. Probablyone of the best Canadian Cream Ales I have had. Very good. Thanks Jadoreblanche!
