northropfrye (2072) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 27, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2013 Amber body, light head, not much lacing. Aroma of sweet malts and nuts. Not a lot of flavour, some sweet malts. Lively palate. Okay.

Matts_Property (831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 3, 2011
500mL can, pours dark amber with a small head. Aroma and flavour is somewhat metallica, with citrus, nuts and stale malts. Not too impressed with this one.

gramity (1301) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 29, 2011
Dark amber brown appearance with thick head. Has a bitter caramel smell with strong malt presence. Taste is grassy, thick and sweet like toffee. Has a hint of fruit. Body is moderate and creamy with decent carbonation. Aftertaste is bitter and almost spicy.

DeanF (1662) - Nunavut, CANADA - DEC 25, 2010
Boring amber colour, modest head. Soft aroma of malts and carbonation. Flavour is a weak mix of malts with a hoppy finish. Just okay.

RobBestwick (583) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 15, 2010
Bottled. Malty, nutty aroma. Bronze hue with a good sized, frothy off-white head. Creamy texture with a dry nutty taste and a sweet malt finish.

thb (671) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 11, 2010
Pours a reddish-amber. Straightforward caramelly malts - not much complexity there, but tasty enough. Just a hint of something more chocolatey maybe. Not much hop balance at all, but there’s a touch of citrus. Dull finish. Nice creamy mouthfeel though!

Savvy1982 (1705) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 11, 2010
Bottle. Pours medium amber, not quite a 1-finger head, poor lacing. Nose is very sweet caramel, stale hops (very stale), red fruit. Flavours of heavy, loagy red fruit, caramel, really dull. This is the same brewery that makes Hophead?!?! Shaaaaaaame Tree Brewing! Shaaaaaaaaaaame!

Hazy amber color. Small head. The aroma has some nice malt and hop, yet simple, with wet paper too. Thin body, metallic caramel flavor, correct bitterness.

2010-03-23, draught at the Moonraker, New Westminster
Amber color. Light fruity aroma. Simple flavor, some caramel, a bit metallic and papery, with some light fruity hopping. Pleasant but simple.
