On tap at the Octopus’s Garden, Alma NB. An attractive reddish amber pour; with a full body and a sweet caramel taste; offset by a touch of spice. A pleasant, easy drinking, red ale.

A bit sweet, but a passable amber. Overall decent malty notes, with a minor piney zing.

16oz Draft at Catch 22 Moncton. Pours a clear ruby/caramel with an off white head that thins and sticks to the glass. Aroma is odd and perhaps slightly off. Slightly sweet and faintly sour with caramel, soy, and other things I don’t really know. Taste is balanced. Slightly sweet caramel with unappetizing notes of soy, grain, and floral. Would get this again and probably won’t finish half.

Cloudy red body with a frothy white head. Aroma is very sweet with hints of caramel. Taste is sweet with hints of caramel and only a touch of bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

341 ml bottle from a six-pack from Sobeys Liquor outlet, served in a shaker pint glass. Pours a very pretty caramel brown hue with a tan, fine-frothed head, leaving rings of lace behind. I did not note the carbonation level. Aroma is a complex of vanilla, maple, coffee, roasted nuts, dark fruit, red wine, spices, and even soy sauce. Flavor is redolent with brown sugar, dark fruit, and soft spices, though not all that winey or sweet as the aromas suggest. It feels kind of warming, as of it were mulled. This makes for an ideal winter beer, with its rich, different nose and mouth experiences, and its elements of sweeter, softer ales and chewy, savory stouts. After having my tongue battered by Minhas’ two latest atrocities against brewing, this is a lifesaver. Excellent beer.

A pale reddish copper in colour with minimal lacing. Rich caramel malts in the front side, some nut and cocoa tones finishes wet and bittering.

It's not enjoyable, I don't like red ales very much but this one is really not a fave. Bad news, someone left a lot if it in my fridge. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pretty standard amber ale, but a decent one. Tastes of caramel, earth, and some spice to it and a dash of skunk. It has a medium slick body to it, with a bit of hop, skunk finish, but it is a reasonable skunk.
