aromas of caramel and apple. nice orange-brown colour, with short-lived off-white head. Tastes of caramel, with some grassy notes, light spices and some nice bitter on the back-end. youíll notice the quality of this one really deteriorates as the temperature falls. Overall, a great session beer, thatís easy to come by in newfoundland!

beerbill (3605) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUN 20, 2008
341 ml bottle courtesy of a trade with mullet2007. Pours a clear amber with a moderate linen white head that lasted through the first third of the glass and left patchy lace. Light aroma of malt along with a few whisps of fruit. The flavor is more definitive with malt that has some earthiness to it. Lightly bitter at the finish. This is a very solid and refreshing amber ale that is very easy to drink. Very sessionable.

dchmela (3005) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2008
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 (2621) - 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. Johnís. A steal at $12 a six pack. Actually thatís 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.
