Medium chestnut colour, some caramel and earthy malts. Nothing really wrong with it, but nothing right either. I've had a hundred beers just like it.

(GABF05) Crystal clear light borwn body with beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, nutty, some chocolate. Taste is medium sweet, nutty, caramel, some chocolate. Light-medium body. Nice for what it is.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with doclock. Opened to a very loud pssst and proceeded to pour all head. Poured a medium orangish color. Aromas of caramel and roasted nuts. Tastes of the same. Thin body. I found this one to be really boring.

Sammy (12491) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2004 Nice ruby red and beautiful creamy head. Various flavour including chocolate malt and a total of 5 malts. A couple of hops there to give a bittersweet aftertaste. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet side would work in Canada. Bottled version was very fresh and better with more generous hops to keep it going over some time.

"big malty nose and flavor. not as dry as the traditional style calls for, but it is fuller bodied...a nice trade-off if you ask me. overall, the lack of hop presence made the overall impression lacking a bit, but it was an enjoyable beer."

DocLock (10836) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 15, 2006
Bottle from Pat’s. Pours a great clear ruby shade, with a sizable frothy khaki head. Aroma of cabernet, slight brown sugar and nuts. Tastes caramel malty, nutty, with a walnut/hazelnut, and a good deal of cabernet grapey flavor. Medium palate with decent balance and complexity. I like this one a lot more than most, and I consider it a top tier red ale, one of the finer examples of the style that I have yet quaffed.

jercraigs (10651) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2004
Draught at the brewery, straight from the tank! Dark red amber with a good size head but it didn't stay around too long. Nice subtle earthy, roasty aroma. Flavour is well balanced malt and bitterness with a hint of toffee hiding in it at times. Good session drinking beer.

blipp (9502) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Bottle. Appearance: Ruby cola brown, off white head. Aroma: Nutty malts, a bit of hops. Palate: Medium. Flavor: Nuuty roasted malt, chestnut, even a hint of chocolate and caramel. A bit of fruit somes in as it warms as well at some citrusy tasting hops. Overall: This gets bumped up a few points for being a Buffalo NY classic. I hope I can still drink this when I’m 80.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2011 [1873-20081205] Cask. Beery aroma has lots of yeast grains and multigrain characteristics. Slightly hazy, dark red brown body with quick off-white bubbles. Heavy yeast multigrain malt flavour. Boozy medium-full body. Booziness is fine but the rest is heavy. (6/3/6/3/12) 3.0

[3525B-20101228] Tap. Some grainy malt in the aroma. Slightly hazy, dark brown body with long-lasting creamy off-white head. Grainy flavour has a little toasted buttery malt and a nice sweet aftertaste. Medium body. Perfect for sipping while watching Canada beat the Czech Republic 7-1 at the World Juniors!! (6/3/6/3/12) 3.0
