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.

Very mediocre beer at best. Lacking any decent malt profile for an amber. Not much body to speak of either. It looks nice, but that's about the only positive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I liked the caramel taste. It was stronger then the red racer copper ale and I liked it better then the Tree cutthroat. I’d buy it again.

ljthiessen (1125) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 18, 2015
Bottle. Slightly cloudy orange-amber pour with a thin off-white head. Aroma is caramel with some cherry notes, red fruit, a little metallic. Flavour is light caramel, slight grassy notes, a little coppery. Pretty light-bodied, a bit thin.

maley1 (1116) - Calgary, CANADA - AUG 24, 2015
Clear light amber pour with medium sized white head. Aroma of malts, grains, slight caramel and metallic notes. Taste of grains, corn, faint caramel malts and hops. Thin bodied, fizzy carbonation, metallic aftertaste.

Bulk_Carrier (3706) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - MAR 9, 2015
Can was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a semi-hazy burnt orange color with a slim finger’s worth of white head. Light lacing glazed along the glass. The smell had a semi-roasty nutty to caramel to light toffee about it. The taste copied the smell and bled into a wet caramel aftertaste leading to a dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionable aspect to it. Slightly mouthy rich nutty notes string along my mouth. Overall, I say this was a good American Amber/Red Ale that I would have again.

500 ml can, advertised as medium body, colour was ok and taste was ok. All around okay beer. Not great/not poor, just okay.

plaugher (407) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - FEB 13, 2015
500ml can into an English pint. Pours a clear amber, pillowy beige head, yet minimal lace. Light hop, a bit of caramel. Light caramel sweetness, a bit metallic, also a bit of a soapy feel. Wholly mediocre.

355 ml can, Calgary, AB, Canada via Coop. Light amber, frothy head. Metallic hop aroma, some caramel and cardamom. Weaker flavour than expected, some caramel and herbal hops. Not overly sweet which helps, though a slightly off aftertaste.

BeerAndPonies (171) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 1, 2014
355 ml can from a sampler twelve-pack from Sobeys Liquor outlet, served in a lager flute glass (wrong choice, I know). Pours a very attractive clear medium amber, light carbonation, with a bone-white head that rapidly vanishes, leaving no lace. Aroma is of slightly sweet malts, caramel, and dark spiced red fruit, touched with bitterness; flavor is slightly bitter caramel, some kind of aromatic wood, and spiced fruit, with a ’chewy’ mouthfeel and medium body. Spice and sweetness linger softly. Nice amber ale with good balance and just enough complexity.
