Dark amber. Pours w/ a large, fizzy almond head that quickly disappears. Very malty aroma w/ some caramel & spice. Light body. Decent malt flavour but not much else. Very quick finish. Little bitterness.

Very weird beer, I just dont know how to describe it. Light bitter taste, a bit of malt, dry grass smell and it just felt like old style light ale.

The best of the Quidi Vidi's I've tried, but still not super. Deep orange colour with a smallish fizzy head. Spicy hop quality in the aroma. Unfortunately that quality isn't retained in the taste. A medium bodied, but watery palate is accompanied by a balanced caramel and light bitter taste.

Nice reddish colour. Toasted caramel aroma. Has a good taste up front but finishes a bit weak.

CapFlu (4459) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2002
Copper coloured amber ale that pours a slight almonde head. There is a slim malt scent. Nice clean finish... Better than the norm.

As soon as the beer hit my mouth I tasted peanut butter! I don’t mind peanut buttter but in a beer it was different. It was sweet. Really odd

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2002
Copper; Aroma shows red grapes, slight bark-like notes, crystal malt, faint phenols; moderate body, but watery finish; vague notes of earth and caramel. A quick beer.
