RobBestwick (845) - 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.

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!

2010-04-03, can, 6-3-5-2-11
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.

rosenbergh (10639) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2010
500 ml can. Calgary, AB, Canada.
Clear amber colour with small bubbly off-white head. Caramel malty, grainy malty woody sweetish aroma. Malty flavour with caramel, grain, wood, nuts and crisp bitter hops. Quite like Danish Viennas (good ones). Sizzling.

omhper (23713) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2010
Draught in Kimberley, BC. Clear amber, creamy head. Neutral nose. Light bodied with clean, simplistic crystal malt drowning in acidic lemon. Besides the obvious flaws there is not much noteworthy going on. A complete let down.

paco (576) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUL 8, 2010
Bottle. Lackluster aromas of corn and wheat. Some caramel but it is hard to find. Flavor is slight caramel and bitter corn/wheat/budweiser taste. Not good, not good at all.

Fred82 (2143) - Québec City, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 7, 2010
500ml can from I don’t remember who.. sorry.
Appearance : Clear amber medium foamy head. Some lacing.
Aroma : Brown sugar, caramel. Quite malty. A bit citrusy.
Taste : Malt, brown sugar. Light hops. Finish is a little bit bitter with malt and hints of brown sugar and caramel.
Overall : Highly drinkable, quite refreshing. Not bad. I don’t detect any real flaws. Taste is just pretty simple and light.

Pretty bland aroma. Nice amber colour with a thick foamy head that quickly dissipates but lingers on the side of the glass slightly throughout drinking. Slightly nutty/hoppy flavour that stays on the palate. Would drink if served to me, but would not recommend.
