Pretty normal here. Reddish pale color. Light beer flavor. Nothing to write home about.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013 For a major beer this is probably a step above some of the many other macro beers. Looks not bad in Colour. However overall it is still nothing great, still rather bland in taste.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
355 ml. can @ Transfer Beach, courtesy of Dave Freeman. Pours a nice Amber colour with a medium beige head. Aroma: very faint, malt sweetness, caramel, little hints of grain. Taste: watered down, malt caramel, brown sugar, no hops, maple syrup, crisp, very sweet. Nothing but faint traces of malt sweetness (caramel, brown sugar) on the palate. Pretty average brew, I've had better and I've had worse.

Draft at Champ’s in Montreal. Malty beer with real nice lacing. Easy to put down. Reminds me of a tastier Killians.

Sugary caramel aroma that seems somewhat bland. Hearty chestnut color, which may be enhanced by additive. Taste is a simple but effective sweet malt with very minor hopping. Body is too light for the look, although the bite is greater than most of these dark lagers. Needs more of all its base characteristics.

Somewhat red. Somewhat malty. Somwhat hoppy. Somewhat beery. I’ve had worse but I’ve certainly had better.

Tried this rather mediocre beer in Toronto during March Madness in 2013. The beer wasn’t very good. Reddish brown in appearance, slightly caramel in flavor, and left just as stale an aftertaste in my mouth as the basketball game.

Pours a deep reddish copper with a big foamy head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of malts, caramel and toffee. Taste is sweet malts, caramel and some faint earthy hops. Decent for molson but overall too thin.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Couleur rouge-brun assez clair, très peu de mousse et encore moins de bulles. Au nez, sucre cuit, malt grillé, houblon, et de timides notes florales au passage. Intéressante touche sucrée, mais les céréales dominent avec une pointe de salé. On note également du bois et du fumé. Finale très aqueuse. Une rousse correcte, mais qui manque cruellement de caractère ; elle n’a rien pour rebuter personne, mais elle n’impressionne pas non plus.

Had on tap at a restaurant when they told me they didn’t offer stout. Drinkable, not very exciting. Certainly not a dark lager. Glass was uneven red, blonde in the thinner sections of the glass. Taste was not memorable.
High alcohol percentage, good value in that respect.
