pumpkinhead2 (897) - Longueuil, Quebec, - NOV 11, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2014 Bire rouge orange, parfaitement limpide, effervescence moyenne, large col beige mousseux et compacte, qui stiole lentement en traant son chemin sur les parois du verre. Armes de pain grill, sucre dorge, caramel/cassonade, grain, avec un lger houblon floral. Beau nez qui semble annoncer une bire plutt sucr, assez intense, mais a manque un peu de complexit cependant. En bouche, cest bien ptillant, mais beaucoup trop mince au palais. Au got, on perd malheureusement beaucoup dintensit par rapport au nez. Lger pain grill, sucr dominant, mais il est difficile den identifier clairement la saveur (sucre dorge, caramel, ou tout simplement du sucre brut?), lger houblon floral, pointe dalcool, finale lgrement amre. Bire correcte sans plus, destine au grand public, elle est bonne, mais elle offre peu sur le plan de la dgustation.

the sauger (49) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 8, 2017
Bouteille de 341 ml. Couleur ambre avec un grand col. Arme de caramel brl et de malt. Got trs malt avec des notes de noix et de crales. Bonne bire pour aller la pche, mais il manque quelque chose.

Luvystypotables (1792) - 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 (1181) - 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 (575) - 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 (1009) - 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 (868) - - 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 (1741) - 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 (391) - 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
