12 oz bottle courtesy Mullet2007. Pours out a nice clear amber with a thick frothy head. Malty, doughy, fruity citrus hop aroma. Malty taste with a nice sweetness, mixed with a hoppy bitterness. Creamy body with a faint bitterness in the finish. This is a solid amber ale and much better than I thought it would be.

amber in color, duh! nose is crystal malt, and a touch of hops. Medium malty flavour, pretty basic canadian amber ale, not fancy, but good drinking.

Clear light amber brown. Straight-shooting crystal malt amber with an earthy hop element. Not bad.

glennmastrange (2464) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2008
Draught. Moderate malt aromas of bread, cereal and caramel, very light hint of herbs for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with honey and brown sugar in the background. Head is small, creamy white, with good lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear honey. Flavor starts lightly sweet and acidic, and finishes lightly acidic and light to moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery but slightly slick and it has a soft carbonation. A very good smooth beer.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 17, 2008
malty aroma. Pours a nice dark golden with white firm head. Slight fruity middle, not hoppy. Some bread notes. Clean and refreshing finish. Not really complicated, but enjoyable.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 13, 2008
Pours amber with a nice white head. Smells vegetal with lots of fruity undertones. Some rosy touches emerge as the beer warms. Tastes of caramel, some dough, hints of nuts. Earthy finish.

theshocker (329) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 27, 2007
One of the few micro-brews available in St. John’s. A steal at $12 a six pack. Actually that’s no so bad considering its the exact same price as Labatt or Molson. Copper colored, clear. Small head. Malty, caramel aroma. Surprisingly bitter, maybe a little too much so. Body is a little thin. Linguring aftertaste. Not very good.

pootzboy (1659) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 1, 2007
"Pours a copper color with a 1 finger rocky head that reduces to a sticky ring…moderate to soft carbonation (A bonus point)…wisps of fruit, honey and mustiness to the nose. Starts mild then the sweet malts come on with a wild honey effect that is balanced by enough tart hops to not become cloying. silky mouth feel (very smooth ale)… the finish is not as fast as I was lead to believe and lingers a bit where the caramel balanced malt gives way to the hops with a strange but nice bittering effect where some metallic earthiness is left on the tongue….a nice drinkable micro ale…..possibly a tad pronounced on the malt side for some but I like it and would recommend you try it. "

Bottle. Quickly thinning head on dark amber. Honey malt aroma with a hint of peat. Surprisingly full bodied. Strong caramel flavour with a hint of peat.
