Enjoyed on-tap at Beerbistro. Pours a medium yellow, with lasting modeate white head. Lines of lace. The odour is slightly odd. Above avrage mouthfeel. Taste is malty, a significant spiceyness and bitteress. No exceptional taste, more or less an average beer.

2009-02-16. Crisp dark amber-orange body with a modest beige head. (3+) Mild sweet aroma, light caramel, sweet malt. (6+) Flavour is sweet overall, with sweet caramel notes and a light fruity tang, English hops in the finish with a lingering light bitterness that balances the sweet malt forward start. Average plus palate. Pretty decent, subtle serviceable brew. On tap at Volo, Toronto mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2009
[1998-20090216] Tap. Mild grains aroma, not much there. Clear, amber red body with a long-lasting creamy off-white head. Toasty malt grains flavour with some bread toast, young hops, lightly burned characteristics and a small kick of alcohol later. Medium body is initially smooth followed by graininess. Quite rough throughout, otherwise fair.

Draught at beerbistro. Pours a clear orange-amber with an average size lasting creamy white head. Mild aroma is malty with some light hops and fruit. Flavour has a surprising amount of hops, mostly in the finish, along with caramel malt and fruit. Nice bitter finish. Average bodied. You know what, I enjoyed this beer quite a bit, I’d easily quaff several pints of it.

Tap at copper mine. Amber pour, with little if any aroma. One good thing too say about this beer is its very drinkable but that isnt saying much. Not much to flavor or after taste. HogTownHarry (6823) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2009
Draught. At BeerBistro. Obviously I am interested in this beer because of my/its name, but it was surprisingly good - I would happily drink this any time, several pints, in fact. Poured bright clear ruby-walnut with a solid lasting creamy/foamy beige head - lovely colour. The aroma is a touch mild - toasty sweet grain and some slightly woody grassy bitterness - vaguely floral or fruity, but again, mostly just mild. The taste is very well balanced - solid up-front sweet fruity malt, light grain, nothing too harsh, with a solid underpinning of grassy/herbal hop bitterness ... nice palate story to this, it starts roasty-sweet, the mid section is perfectly balanced, and the longish finish is fresh and hoppy (UK hoppy, of course). Slightly light-bodied, solidly astringent (in a very good way, again it seemed a little woody to me), only mildly carbonated, but it finished nicely bitter ... Simple, well-made, a great drinking bitter - that’s actually bitter! egajdzis (6574) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 12, 2009
[Tap @ UJ’s Glenside; 6.3%] Poured a clear brown color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of nuts, caramel malts, some vanilla, and toasted dough. Taste of sweeter caramel, brown sugar, nuts, and some cocoa, with a dry finish. Seemed more like a brown ale to me. JohnnyJ (5562) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 2, 2010
Draft pour. Orangish,off-white head. Fruit, raisin, bread, light sweet caramel. Soft beer, easy to drink, but not very interesting. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Draft. Pours a dark amber body with an off white head. Bitter earth y tones and soil with a bitter earth character. Some lighter dried fruit character that follows through. Not bad.
