What a beautiful pour, it looks like liquid caramel. Taste isn't that good - taste like a MGD or something to me. I expected more out of this beer. Oh well, with beer, like women, expectations were made to be lowered.

Light in color, clear. Light aroma witha good but not overpowering flavor. Medium malt with a slight hoppy clean finish.

This is a decent looking beer, and the smell isn't bad, but the taste and mouthfeel are nothing special at all. The aftertaste is a moderate bitter that I didn't care for, and on my own personal scale, I gave it a 4/10. This isn't a beer that I'd care to have again.

Amber, mildly hoppy, blah, blah. This was a very uninteresting beer. I don't know who this could be exported to, because I wouldn't want it.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Caramelly malt aroma and some cloying sweetness. Cloudy in appearance with some particles and good visible carbonation. Small head that is mostly dissipating. I've had a million beers that taste like this. Add another to the list. Boring. A little stale. Not sweet enought.

Light pleasant nose, deep gold color, nice head. Cookie, bread-like malt body. Could use some more hops. Medium body. OK beer.

Good everyday beer. Coppery in color, slightly cloudy. Drinks crisply with just a touch of hoppy fruitiness. How come this "Canadian" ale is so much better than the crap they send over the border?

Amber, but a bit cloudy. Strong Hop aroma with a similar taste that also had a hint of fruitiness. Had a slight malt finish. Enjoyable.
