Amber red colour with a small white head. Aroma is malty and slightly spicy. Tastes malty with a light tinge of citrus. A hop bitter end makes this a very good amber.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2004
Malt and fruit aromas, cloudy amber, and a small toffee head. Cider- like, thin bodied, fair. Thanks joey_capps.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 15, 2004
Hazy light amber colour with a thin and mostly diminishing off-white head. Caramel, toffee, orange, lemon, and earthy aroma. Light acidity, moderate toffee, and light yeasty flavours, with a dry almond and possibly woody bitter finish. Light to medium body, creamy yet prickly mouthfeel.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2004
Malty, biscuity aroma, a touch phenolic but nice - almost like a scotch ale aroma. Copper coloured with white head that recedes to cover. Good carbonation. Malty, mildly spicy and yeasty flavour. Medium body with lively mouthfeel. Very drinkable though not exceptional. Bottle.

Eructoblaster (3363) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 24, 2004
Very nice chestnut cloudy body topped with an honest beige head. Spicy nose with hints of citrus and herbs. The taste, dominated by spices and malt, also bears some hoppiness that gets more present in the final. I am pleasantly surprised by that one!

jercraigs (8485) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2003
Pours a hazy dark amber. Aroma is yeasty with citrusy notes. A dry finish after sweet malt and yeast in the flavour.

Kåstå (1273) - Mol, BELGIUM - SEP 5, 2003
Amber coloured with a small light brown head. Weak malty aroma. A simple but rather nice malty taste.

Rastacouere (6159) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2003
UPDATED: APR 11, 2004 Copper robe, malt and caramel bouquet. It's dry and short in mouth. Without being agressive, the roasted flavor from that beer is not appealing.
