A decidedly rusty copper, pours a thick and frothy cream coloured head. In the nose, caramel malts meet toasty spices. Notes of chestnut here with a nice fruity component leaning towards plum. Tastes of sweet caramel, some butterscotch. A good level of biscuit graininess follows with fruit, some vanilla/rye/spices. Nice hop bite comes mid-palate and lasts. Medium/Full body, creamy with marked lasting fruity and a lingering hoppy aftertaste.

Not much going on here...... Other than another butter bomb. Diacetyl everywhere..... Light hops with butter, caramel malts with butter! The finish is very buttery! What a surprise!

Can - Caramel and pale malts. Clear copper with a decent white head. Lots of sweet caramel and not much else. A bit sweet for my tastes.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2013
500 mL can from the brewery, served in a branded glass. Pours clear copper with a small tan head that fades to a thin remnant. The nose has toasty caramel and brown sugar with herbs and flowers. The flavour is medium sweet with herbal hops. There are nutty malts, herbs, subtle yeast and earth. The finish is medium subtle malts and yeast with soft hops. On the palate, it is medium in body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a passable amber ale with grainy notes and subtle yeast. 2012-09-02

A hazed amber ale with a thick mocha head. In aroma, a rather grassy malt with light iron notes. In mouth, a rather watery nutty malt with herbal notes, faint hops, astringent notes, so-so. On tap at Arrow and Loon, July 18, 2012.
