Can brought from Halifax: thanks, Dad! Pours amber with thick white head. Aroma of honey, brandy, butterscotch and pine. Smooth yet full mouthfeel. Nice.

Can from the brewery. Some malty aroma, medium bodied red amber. Malt flavor up front followed by hops in the end. Very enjoyable.

This truly has red magic and you get hit with all five malts. Pours a bubbly hazy amber with a little bubbly head. Wicked aroma of caramel malts, toffee, and brown sugar. Tastes of caramel, toffee, malt tea, and brow bread. Had a medium smooth body with average carbonation and just felt a little watery at times, but everything else is bang on.

Dammmmmmm son! Surpirsed as heck by this, not because it was in a can, not because it’s possibly North America’s most ambiguous style but because the can was all dented! Anyhow, this is what a Red Ale should taste like if I may opine as such. A tad light in colour but still red with a light beige head. Notes of honey, caramel, walnuts, brown bread, cigars and light herbal hops play magical musicals to the nostrils. The taste is all of that, sweet up front and finishing bitter but leaving the malty goodness lingering. So fresh and amazingly good mouthfeel, chewy and medium soft carboation with a rich silky smooth body. Hook me up with a dozen to session....smiles!

12oz can into an English pint. Pours a reddish amber with a quarter-inch off-white head. Rich, malty nose with a bit of dried fruit; malty sweetness and something a bit nutty? Medium- to medium-full body.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle from Bishops Cellar in Halifax. Poured a dark cloudy mahogany with very little off white head. It was a little flat. I bought this back in June and kept it in the fridge until now so I’m not sure if that was a factor. Aroma was malty with some nut and earth tones. Taste was more woodsy malts, and an odd sour taste with some hops on the finish. Tiny bit on the flat/watery side, but that might have been my storage and it certainly didn’t ruin it. Overall, sourness in an amber was unexpected but not unwelcome. Definitely worth a try.

1L bottle. frothy head and decent carbonation with a cloudy but red colour. malted and slightly roasted having a real fruit character as well. palate is medium bodied, having a bitter flavour that is balanced by a slight sweetness. Overall a decent everyday red ale.

Bottle, deep mahogany, medium beige head. Sweet fruity caramel aroma. Sweet malty palate, dark caramel, butterscotch, vague fruit, hints of cocoa and nuts. Quite flavorful, but also quite sweet, with no real bitterness to speak of.

Dunno if I got a bad one, but this tasted heavy of fruity beer, with a distinct plum aroma.
