Really nice Amber ale, aroma of caramel, nut and citrus. Taste is sweet toffee, hop with a medium body. I’d definitely drink this again.

Bottled sample via sammy. Amber in colour with strong carbonation. Loads of crystal malts on the nose with notes of caramel, mild orange, and a bit of toasted nut. Flavors are of very artificial sweented iced tea, pine nuts, and a bit of earthy bitterness. Watery and light bodied, yet still fairly cloying on the finish. Seems pretty blah to me. Average at best.

Papillon (363) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2009 341 mL Bottle. Red-amber body with an off-white foamy head that stays and clings to the sides of the glass. Aroma of sweet malt, crystal malt, brown sugar, and a hint of toffee. The flavor, although a bit sweet, describes the same as the aroma, toffee and brown sugar come through in the aftertaste and linger for a bit. Nice smooth mouth feel. I’ll take this one on an autumn fishing trip.

Spab (2126) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2009
341 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear reddish goldwith creamy white head. Caramel malt very prominent in the nose with a slight nuttishness. Quite big malty flavour, fairly sweet, with some caramel, fruit, roast and spice. More body than might expect and soft carbonation. I was pleasantly surprised by this.

swoopjones (5333) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Bottle from Sammy. Thanks!! Pours a darker red, Caramel malt & nutty brown ale aroma. Taste is malt dominated; caramel and a twing of chocolate. Fuller bodied. Decent

I tried this beer on August 14, 2009 at "Smokeless Joe’s" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent dark red with a generous light tan head that lasted a while. The aroma was roasted malt, some cherries, and some nuts. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with mild carbonation. The flavour was malty, with some hints of paper. Not enjoyed.

DerWeg (1431) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2009
Reddy gold with white head, pretty clear, straw highlights. Light aroma of yeast and fruit. Taste candy sweeet malt that threatens to be cloying, but then actually cleans up with some light bitter hops in the middle and nearing the finish,which is more of a ghost but is at least clean. Grapes, caramel,

Cartoonkhaki (1220) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2009
Amber with a so-so head. Malty aroma, caramel. I found it a bit too sweet for my liking of an amber. Weak body. Middle of the road not much else.

Bejaaamin (115) - London, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2009
Red amber colour. Small weak head. Malty nose, slight touch of toffee. Really sharp mouthfeel, quick aftertaste. Flavours are sweet malt, caramel. Sad finish.

Roli (405) - laval, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2009
Drank from bottle. Not impressed with that one. Deep amber color, very malty (roasted malt). Still, its kinda sweet and watery in the end. Average.
