473 mL can. Pours an amber red with a modest head that disappears fairly quickly. Nothing distinctive on the palate, a modest finish with some bitterness. Overall, an unimpressive beer, not one that I would choose, however it's not bad given it's from a macro brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was a tough beer to rate in that, it is much more unpleasant on draft than it is in a bottle or can. It is one of the must awful tasting beers I have ever had on draft, yet in a bottle, I can handle it. It has quite a nice appearance, decent head solid dark red color. The taste is a bit tart, not overly smooth, but it can be stomached if you try.

On draft in Toronto. Fairly tame red. Taste is grain, caramel and watered down hay. Average.

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2013
Pours amber with a creamy head. Aroma is of butterscotch, caramel malt, light toast. Taste is of caramel malt up front, with a medium-light body that leads to an herbal finish with light bitterness. I think this loses points with people for being from a macro...

Deep golden color, white head. Flowery hops that turn into heavy maltiness towards the finish. Medium body, medium carbonation. Not bad.

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

HipHopOpotamus (226) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2014 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.

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.
