Couleur rousse avec un petit collet qui meure vite. Arome super légé, un peu sucré. Goût un peu amère et sucré. J’était content de la boire, c’est un style que je trouvais spécial, sans l’avoir esseiller. LDawg (72) - Rockport, Texas, USA - APR 4, 2006

This has become a standard for me. Easy to find throughout California. Very Drinkable. Immy (1958) - Virginia Beach, USA - MAR 30, 2006
Bottle. Pours a nice golden amber color with a thick off white head. Lotsa carbonation bubbles. Nice lace. Nose is very mild, caramel-like, with just the slightest floral notes. The body is medium to light. Flavor is rather malty, with some tannic notes. Finish is just a touch dry, and a light bitter creeps up the sides of the tongue. OK, but not all that exciting. cewldre (268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 30, 2006
A very enjoyable beer. Bottle. Poured a nice ruby color. A nice medium white head. Has th smell of something fruity, hints of citrus. Taste is very similar, fruity at first, then ever so slight hop tatse that compliments the beer. Can be enjoyed any time.

Tap. I’ve had this many a times on tap, from bottle and in many areas. Golden-honey and clear with an offwhite head. Thin lace in rings. Body is medium with a semi-dry finish. Flavor is fruity and mild, pleasant and enjoyable--rather simple (in a nice way). Some yeast presence is notieable. Aroma is light, touch of yeast, malts. Session beer. yalnikim (802) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 27, 2006
Tasted 27/03/2006. 330ml bottle from Rumble’s February shipment.
Pours a vivid and lively bronze-amber. Light-tan head, which appears slightly green-tinged, is thick and pillowy. It collapses but holds all the way through the glass. Mild nose, very well-balanced and fresh, suggests caramel, fresh lilies and oranges. In the mouth there are juicy malts and soft water, up front, followed by spicy and citrus hops through the middle. A long, and strongly bitter, lingering citrus and herbal finish begs me to take another sip. Light-medium weight, mildly carbonated, very soft liquor. A truly great beer: complex enough to contemplate over, yet simple enough to enjoy as a session beer with friends (though it is on the expensive side for that). jake65 (4000) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - MAR 27, 2006
Pours a great amber color with copper tones. Taste ranged from caramels, maltiness, citrus, to fruitiness and floral hints. I enjoyed this beer start to finish. Great taste throughout the glass even with the complexity of tastes. luvcasks (178) - USA - MAR 25, 2006
Aroma: Floral hop notes and some faint fruitiness
Appearance: Amber with a nice white head
Flavor: Fabulous (at the right temp) Slightly fruity, caramely malt flavor balanced beautifully with the hop bitterness.
Palate: Light, has a distinct bite in the finish and finishes exceptionally clean making begging for the next pint... take that and compare to the big name brands touting clean finish
Overall: Despite being ubiquitous, still the archetype... still wonderful. For me the beer is often served too cold for the full effect spish (12) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2006
have tried this both on tap in California and found it in a bottle here in Toronto. one of the best ’steam’ beers out there. smells a bit fruity at first sniff, but the typical characteristics of a steam beer are quickly apparent. slight smell of wet dog, but you can tell it’s a real beer. finished slightly bitter and tastes better at colder temperatures, in my opinion. overall a very nice beer, even from the bottle!
found at the LCBO at Wilson/Dufferin in Toronto.
