pootzboy (1590) - Hawgville, Ontario, - JUN 12, 2012
On tap @ Gig’s - taps a lightly hazed copper-orange with a puffy lasting off white cap. Moderate carbonation. Aroma is robust with Munich red malts - toasty and noble hopping, some light fruitiness. Medium bodied creamy mouth feel, smooth malt accented character. Flavor is fairly well balanced between toasty-bready malts and herbal woody hops - long dry bittersweet nutty malty finish with a hop bite. If I closed my eyes I’d think I was drinking a fresh Dusseldorf Alt. I enjoy this lagered amber ale and it is probably the best Albier we have had in this market since the Duckstein supply dried up.

Freaky_tiki (547) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2014
Pour at 3030 on Junction brew tour is deep brown with a punchy bouquet. Deep reverb of malt, with a slightly herbal twang. The taste is round & wholesome, a tad earthy.

czar (4369) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 29, 2013
tap at beer brothers, ottawa. clear golden orange pour with an off-white head, some retention and lacing. intense candied oranges - barmaid suggested something more like hoppy froot loops - darn she’s right, now i can only taste that artificial stuff, touch of spruce and a lot of pepper, and miscellaneous spices that don’t blend in, doughy, lightly fruity toasted malts - pumpkins, hint of woodsy notes, herbal and grassy. some sweetness. moderate carbonation, light to medium body - oily, grassy-fruity sweetish finish. alt as in alternative. not an altbier. ackward. DP - as i politely suggested to staff.

Eructoblaster (3015) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
On tap at Brothers Beer Bistro (Ottawa, ON). Copper body with a thin white foamy head. Good malty aroma with grainy and hoppy hints. Its well balanced malty/hoppy taste carries grainy and woody notes. Ends with a decent bitter/grainy finish. Not bad at all.

Lubiere (9998) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 2, 2013
A clear amber alt with a thin off white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with light grassy hops, grainy notes and light spicy notes. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with mineral notes, grassy hops, nice and smooth with light woody character. On tap at Arrow and Loon.

Metalchopz (2285) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 18, 2013
Enjoyed at the National Capital Craft Beer Week. Pours a clean copper colour with a white head. Grainy malt nose with fresh hops that give out fruity notes. Nice slight dry finish. Again, fruity and cereal malt flavours. A nice grainy pale ale and good for this style.

ads135 (2955) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - APR 14, 2013
The roasted nuttiness of this beer is pretty appealing, though the aroma is a bit off. A little acidic. A good session as its pretty drinkable. Sweet with a medium body.

Solid bready, biscuity malts, with some nice grassy hops. Great mouth feel, solid dry bitter finish.
