Poured on tap, light amber. The smell and taste were both, at first, very metallic. The metal went away after awhile, but left nothing special behind. Not very good.

341 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark amber colour with a small white head. Malty aroma with caramel and grain. Flavour is malty with some caramel and a touch of dryness in the finish. Medium body with watery texture and average carbonation.

jb (2152) - Rochester, New York, USA - APR 29, 2014
Enjoyed this one at the bar in Hard Rock, Niagara Falls, Ontario Canada. Fresh, and very much malt forward. Could have session drank this one all night. Best of the night on a pub crawl. Amber color is attractive.

ametras (336) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2014
On tap. Clear amber with a creamy off-white head. Flavors are sweet and toasted malts, caramel with fruity and nutty notes. Light body high carbonation, watery texture.

RhetoricalAns (191) - Toronto, Alberta, CANADA - APR 23, 2014
Often the best beer available on tap, generally decent. Pours amber with a thin white head which dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is caramel, can sometimes be a little musty. Taste is mostly light malt, slight bitterness.

Une bonne bière en finissant de travailler. Pas trop d’amertume, pas trop de houblon. C’est une rousse qui à du goût, rafraichissante et réconfortante. Casual buddy beer.

Nothing wrong with this beer really. Labeled as an "Irish-Style Ale", I assume this is kind of a Canadian take on Smithwick’s. Aroma is malt, nuts, cereal - no trace of hops. Appearance is an attractive deep amber, nice head that unfortunately dissipates quickly. Taste is nice and malty, slight bitterness in the finish. Clean and smooth, but the flavor should be deeper. Overall, a fine choice.

MunBro (251) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 6, 2014
Aroma of thin malts and hops. Dark amber pour with a thin white head. Doesn’t taste like much. Not awful. Not great.
