This was wayyyyyyyyyy better than the Iceberg one I tried but still just ho-hum. A copper pour with a thin head. Quite malty, caramel, bread, grains and some light nutiness. I wish it was a bit hoppier to keep it balanced. It has got a nice flavour, I would enjoy it more if the feel was a bit thicker to match the malted goodness.

On tap and in bottle; this was OK. I like amber ale’s though found this a little hoppy and dry for my liking
Overall it was OK ... but nothing special

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
341 ml bottle from Sherbrooke Liquor via Ryan (thanks!), served cool in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear copper with a decent tan head.
Aroma: Lots of grains/cereals, mashy, a bit of caramel/toffee, smells like caramel malt.
Palate: Medium body, moderate effervescence.
Flav.: Much like the nose, mainly caramel malt, grain/cereal, meh; dry with limited bitterness and a pleasant toffee finish.
Seem to recall this tasting better back in the day. Changes to the beer or to my palate...hard to say.

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle courtesy of @kgamiller all the way from the Rock itself.Clear amber pour with a bubbly white head. Not at all what was expected. Clear amber pour with a bubbly white head, little retention.Aroma is stagnant grassy, vegetabley malts with a skunky hoppy note. Certainly hope this was a sour bottle mayhaps - as this was a buttery fart in a bottle. An ungodly mess unworthy of Newfoundland.

Not their best beer but overall pretty good. Not too much of an aftertaste. You can definitely taste the hops, beer was really fresh.

Sample at Picaroon's Brewer's Bash. Sweet, malty taste, light bitterness on the finish. Overall, rather British and sweet, but enjoyable.

Pint on tap. Small head, copper, clear. Nice light aroma, with sweet nuts and various malts. Nice balanced malty taste with toffee, has a bitter bite, but not piney at all. Very tasty, and a nice surprise in newfoundland!

Bottle. Pours a reddish-amber colour with an off white head which dissipates quickly. Smells smoky, almost "meaty". Tastes very interesting, again almost "meaty", yet very tasty. Not too much carbonation. I really like this beer, would buy again.
