Pours a clear amber. Some faint vanilla aromas...malts too. Flavours are very watered down. Malty....that’s about it.

Golden reddish colour, uninteresting and clear. Faint malty aroma. Taste is malty, a bit sweet. Okay, but uninspired.

Light caramel nose. Clear brown body with a small offwhite head. Toasty grains with light hop bitterness aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel not much carbonation.

HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - OCT 9, 2012
341ml bottle. Small, white head. Looks a little oily, darker than I’d expect for a pale. Brown sugar, caramel, fruity and earthy, spicy hops aroma. Taste is much thinner than the smell, light malt, sour, pepper and earth, but very light on all of them. Overall, slightly more flavourful and it warmed up, but a run of the mill session pale ale.

Boutip (5025) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 21, 2012
Can: Poured a slightly hazy amber color ale with a medium size foamy head with average retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of somewhat dry English style malt with light floral notes. Taste is also a mix between some floral notes with light dry malt notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not complex and easily drinkabale.

Listigovers (419) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2012
Tastes like an average amber beer. It’s moderately refreshing, a bit dirty on the afteraste, sparkling palate. Very average, you could do a lot worse but I wouldn’t go out of my way for this brew.

Une canette de 473 ml partagée avec ma femme lors d’un souper à Toronto. Une robe cuivrée foncée avec un simple anneau de mousse. Un nez de malts légèrement sucrés et de houblons qui proposent la discrétion. Un goût collé sur les parfums: aucune distraction majeure et sans grand travail pour les papilles. Une bouche de moyenne densité avec un pétillement modérément actif et une texture crémeuse. Une finale très faiblement amère sur ce qui me semble être des houblons à l’anglaise. Facile à boire sans pour autant être complètement agréable.

dfearnley (1155) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 26, 2012
473mL can to wine glass Nutmeg, roasted malts, and bready aroma. Clear reddish amber colour with a 1cm off white head that disappears quickly. Nice malt character, but not much complexity.

Powertrip (999) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 6, 2012
Single can purchased from an LCBO in Ottawa, Ontario on 06/05/2012. Colour: Light orange with low off-white creamy head. Nose: A bread and cheese spread platter, light traces of nut. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium-light bitter, medium-light sour. A peppery barley enters the mouth, a low sour peak in the middle, then a dark grain finish. Carbonation a touch high.

Zoe (8) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 19, 2012 does not count
473 ml can bought at LCBO Aroma : Indistinguishable aroma, nothing interesting or special. Appearance : Pours clear, golden amber with small white head that disappears quickly. Reasonable lacing. Taste : Light bitterness, Palate : Average carbonation, didn’t particularly care for the finish. Overall : Not that enjoyable. Wouldn’t buy or drink again as much better beers available in the category.
