collieman (191) - montreal, Quebec, - FEB 26, 2006
this is now the best beer we have at my work, wich ofcource doesnt say very much for our selection. Cource maby I am blinded by the thirst and exaustion that leaves the kitchen with me, but I find this one to be refreshing and a little better. Better than what is the question. Pours a "very clearly too perfect to be natural" ruby red, with some high levels of carbonation and a prety pathetick head of misty white fizz, but I feel that like most clasic Canadian ales {and that is what this realy is} its best from the bottle. Aroma is a little sweet, and a little hard to completly detect due to the mass amout of co2 flowing out of the neck. Taste is where it wins me over a 50, but only slightly. Slightly bready, nutty sweet malt makes a tiny first aperance, folowed by a very nice, yet overly small splash of nice pinny tangy hopy bitterness, folowed by a sweet and rosey finish with a trace of yeast. Add to that its dry, thin and slightly silky palat, and light "almost not there" mouthfeel, not to mention its light dry aftertase, this is a perfect realy hot, tired and thirsty, 20 seconds to swalow beer. And, realy, isnt that what a clasic Canadian ale shoud be? not a delecate sipper for the refined palat, but an honest beer for the workin man.and in that respect, its a great choice over the normal montreal tavern molson and labat prodouts. But in this beer-o-centrec world of ours, this is a standard blend of artificialyfermentend grains that is for some reason called beer. All depends on youre point of view I guess. Cheers

Luvystypotables (1779) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - NOV 3, 2016
A very drinkable beer light in aroma and taste. Slight grain and malt aroma not much head or carbonation. Pours a clear Amber color. Light grain taste slightly watery taste.

ComradeK (1165) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 20, 2016
Draught at The Cornerstone, Kenora. Pours a clear medium amber, with a small off-white head, which dissipates quickly, leaving little lace. The aroma offers faint grassy and light lemon hops, along with grainy malt. Mild lemon hops up front give way to a surprisingly light body, with mild toffee and grainy, bready malt notes. The finish is fairly short, with a little grassiness. Better than the Keiths IPA, but thats not saying a huge amount.

Bierdimpfe (550) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 3, 2016
Slightly hazy copper color with moderate activity. Faint creamy light brown 2 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with poor legs. Flavors of corn syrup, faint noble hops, dark malts. Thick sweetness, a little sharp. Slick medium to full body with extra prickly carbonation. Light finish that shortly lingers with grassy notes and sweet grainy sugary toffee feel. Overall bad quality craft. Very faint watery flavors. Unbalanced, too syrupy. Bland, a little flat, lacks freshness. Adjunct feel.

cmacklin (974) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 21, 2016
On tap. Pours a clear red-brown with a small, off-white head that dissipates to an outer ring, leaving spotty lacing. Sweet aroma of caramel malt, bread and light fruit. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, bread, light fruit and a hint of nuts with a dry, mildly bitter finish. Light body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Better than I thought it would be.

Cimbasso (840) - - MAY 13, 2016
A reddish-brown colour with a thin white head. Sampled on draught. Sweet aroma and a thinnish taste dominated by caramel. Maybe a slight hint of nuts. Hardly any bitterness or hop flavour. A poor brew with little character, sweet and rather thin tasting.

Kauge (1706) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 5, 2016
Tap at Puck in Toronto. The most pointless amberish brew Ive ever had. Lacks everything, most of all body and flavour. On the positive side: could finish the pint while watching a game. So not exactly disastrous.

ChadPoole (383) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2016
Pours dark red with a quick desolving off white head. An aroma of malt and nuts. Has a malt, nut and fruit flavor with a medium body. Good summer beer

Tranquillity (2034) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 16, 2015
Draft. Red body, thick white head that disappears quickly. The aroma is sweet and buttery, while the flavor is acidic. Nice for a hot summer day compared to a lager.
