cfrancis (3025) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2016
Pours cloudy dark gold with a big frothy off white top. Aroma is sweet caramel malts with light pine hops. Taste is sweet, too sweet for me. Light hop bitterness.

Can from RCSS. Slightly cloudy medium copper under a one finger off white head. Nose is bread, toffee, grains and some light citrus and a touch of green apple. Flavour is light+ sweet toffee with a lighter bitterness and a hint of pepper. Mouth is medium- and sticky with average carbonation and a lightly bitter finish. 7/3+/7-/3/13

Alpha10 (560) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2016
2026/05/09 - Pours a clear, medium amber colour with a thick, foamy, off white head that slowly reduces and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is light caramel malt, grass, lots of cereal, light apple, mild citrus notes and a hint of pine. Taste is pale malts, bread, dusty hops and light resin. Mouthfeel is light to medium and slightly watery with average carbonation and a drying, mildly astringent finish. Found this to be a little watery and chalky. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

473ml can. Pours a fairly big frothy off-white head and has a light amber appearance. Thick dirty lacing. Aromas of light toasty malts, earthy and grassy hops. Flavours are somewhat maltier than expected, some bready and toasted malts at the forefront but somw hoppy notes still do come through, mainly the earthy hops. Quite a bit of fruity notes also. Good retention. Lively carbonation. Not bad.

Canmoore (390) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2016
Pours a cloudy orange (not amber). Thick creamy head that’s remains thick well after pouring. Aroma has notes of citrus, peppery malts, grass clippings, crackers, and fruity esters. Tasting notes include cracker malts, pepper, and orange peel with a pleasant bitter finish. Mouth feel is oily, and the clings to the palate. Pleasantly surprised!this!

Metalchopz (3014) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2016
First from this brewery for me. Pours a hazy amber colour with some golden hue. Head is nice, warm, creamy, good retention and covers the glass with lacing. Fruity malt aromas giving orange notes with some light burnt wood and grassy hops. Fruity malt taste start with a mild bitter hoppy finish. A decent creamy English Pale ale.

probstblueribbon (3652) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 5, 2016
473 ml can from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Hazy orange-amber with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma: Citrusy hops, a bit fruity, light caramel, some bread crust, a little pine, lightly dusty, a bit more caramel as it warms. Palate: Medium body, moderate+ carbonation. Flav.: Citrusy and lightly piney hops with a bread crust and light caramel malt backbone that increases as it warms; dry with fair to decent bitterness and a pleasant, balanced finish with some nice malt and hop character.

Ratebeer calls this an “Amber” and the can says “Pale Ale”. My senses put it somewhere in the middle.

MartinT (9063) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2015
My Bottom Line:
This toasty and caramelized brew benefits from rising resinous hops and their bitterness, but ultimately falls short of being a memorable pint.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A slice of foam covers the misty amber.
-This would probably be nicer from a hand pull, naturally carbonated.
-Oranges are found within the slightly burnt sugars.
-The flavor profile is balanced yet rough.
-Drinkability is rather high.

Can.

Tessic (1027) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 28, 2015
This ale poured a medium Amber colour with a nice, big, cream coloured head. Scents include citrus, cream, allspice? and a little dough. First swig was smooth and somewhat creamy with minimal carbonation. Flavours of grassy hops and malt most prominent. Finish is bitter with malt flavours lingering.

Pretty straight forward, nice grassy hops, solid cereals. Nice mouthfeel, perfect carb. Satisfying bitter, crisp cereal finish, with some subtle pine. A nice session amber.
