Not bad. Pours an iced tea color. Some roasty aromas and flavors. A touch of coffee on the finish. Pretty good for a cream ale.

VertBaconStrips (2100) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 23, 2013
On tap at Underground. K, cheating here. Took 3 sample glasses and dumped them into one glass - Apx 4-5oz. Medium amber. Everything from here on are in the light or faint category. Smellz - toasty, grains, random citrus, mostly malts. Flavz: very similar with more obvious malts and less grain. Watery was expected. A pint could be drank in three big chugs.

reebtogi (4375) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 17, 2012
341ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that disappears quickly leaving no lacing. Aroma is light malts and hops. Taste is malty sweet with some unflattering hop bitterness. Not one of the better cream ales out there and not recommended.

Enjoyed on cask at St. Augustine’s. A bit of carbonation here, just tapped cask. Some colour in the body and even a bit of red. Smooth, some flavour, Ok drinkability for a basic mild ale.Tad of hops and malt.Decent cask.

HeistAlmighty (1146) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUN 27, 2011
341ml bottle from Pepper’s Pub in Saint John (they no longer carry Russel products). Light brown copper colour. Sweet caramel malts are pretty much the story here.

DeanF (1716) - Nunavut, CANADA - JAN 2, 2011
Decent clear ruby-amber body with an okay level of white head on top. Faint aroma of malts, but only faint. Decent drinkable malt taste, slightly dry and bready finish. Drinkable but unremarkable.
