Draught at Malone’s Urban Drinkery, Vancouver
Amber color, cream; generous head. The aroma is a bit creamy and buttery. Light mouthfeel, some caramel, butter, wood (would that be the whiskey?); low bitterness. Dry final.
What did they want to do?

Tap @ Malone’s. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are caramel, fruits, malt and hops.

yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2013
On tap. A dark amber beer with a small, dense off-white to light beige head. Rather weak aroma and flavor, some caramel maltyness going on all the way, a touch of grains as well, but all very subdued. There’s also some bitterness, but again, not much. Medium body, soft carbonation, with a short finish. Well, what can I say? It certainly isn’t a bad one, but it’s utterly dull, certainly not a beer I’d choose to have again if there were other choices. 130703

DuffMan (6886) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 27, 2011
Bottle. Medium copper amber, brief white head. Aroma is sweet caramel. Flavours of sweet caramel leaning toward butterscotch, maybe some almonds. Negligable hop presence. Too simple and sweet to repurchase, but not undrinkable.

mcberko (6704) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 11, 2011
341mL bottle, pours dark copper. Aroma of pale malts and burnt caramel. Flavour of roasted caramel, sweetness and toasted nuts. Decent, though uninspiring.

Appearance: clear amber with thin tanned rocky fizzy top. 2+
Body , Flavour , Palate and Final Notes: medium full bodied. Plenty of caramel and candy sugars yet somehow not cloyingly sweet. Raspberry fruit behind , amber malts, smoked toffee. Mineral watery walls. Clean easy ale with good crispness. Hint of paired hop behind.

DSG (6106) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle sample at Fass Beit Beera Brewhouse. Thanks Ariel. Hazy amber. Oxidized aroma of cardboard, stale chocolate and caramel. Sweetish flavor, malty, oxidized, with stale chocolate, caramel, a bit of honey anda bit of fruitiness. Medium-bodied. Seems old. Not pleasant.

RichardGretton (4260) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 23, 2012
Can on Rocky Mountaineer Train, Canada. Vibrant bronze coloured beer with a light head. The aroma is lightly malty and roasted, and the flavour is gently malty and roasted with some caramelness. Overall a pleasant mildly roasted and malty beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

reebtogi (4242) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 24, 2011
330mL bottle poured a clear amber color with about a finger of off-white head settling to a small ring around edge of glass. Aroma of caramel. Taste is lightly sweet malt with a moderate hoppy finish. Carbonation and body are light, providing little mouthfeel.

Decently balanced actually. Has some hoppy pale ale feel with some oak. Pours red with some lacing. Finishes of bitter alcohol. Texture a little watery. Pint at the Metropole.
