Bottle. Malt, grassy hops aroma. Sour hop taste. A bit acidic but passable. Never would’ve guessed this was an amber ale from what I was tasting... may need to try this one again. shintriad (701) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2007
Finally, an American-style ale I can be proud of. Copper colour, impressive head with nice lacing, a mild but long and dry finish. Clean, thick, feels refreshing in the back of the throat. Maybe the best pale ale in Ontario. Lawnmower beer? Hell, no. Plowman’s, bitches. shaynsawchuk (681) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 22, 2012
500 mL bottle. Pours mahogany with a thin off white head, dies off quickly with a little lacing. Nose of black cherry, caramel, hops, chestnut and melting butter. A big beer for only 4.7%, full bodied and fairly sweet offset by roasted malt flavor and a hop bite. A little sticky on the palate with a lingering bitter finish. Liked this one a lot. lukin (663) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2011
bottle. Pours hazy ruby-orange. Aroma of toasted malts, woodiness. Some sweet toffee in the taste, nicely balanced with a light bitter kick. Pretty good. Bierdimpfe (640) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 17, 2016
Slightly hazy dark amber color with a thick cloud of activity. Creamy and frothy beige 2-3 finger island head, lasting around 15-20 minutes, creating a very good amount of lacing. Flavors of caramel and butterscotch, faint ester fruits, citrus, sweet buttery grains, faint floral and herbal spices, faint nutmeg and cinnamon. Highly sweet with the right amount of grassy hops and red ale spices. Creamy smooth medium to full body with carbonation. Medium strength finish with a nice lingering mouthfeel of cinnamon spices, caramel, and grassy noble spices. Overall pretty good craft with a delicious salivating prominent caramel flavor, lots of freshness and well intensified. A pleasure to drink!

Damn good, damn good. Capped by an off-white head, this dark gold guzzle smells of hay, honey and yeasty bread. It tastes a little sweet with caramel, nuts and quite unexpectedly, but very welcomed, plum. A low carbonated brew with a smooth body shared with the finest of quaffing companions.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2007 1.9 L growler from the brewery - poured reddish copper hue with a THICK and rocky off-white head that lasts pretty much forever. Biscuity malt aroma and quite a bit of juicy Cascade-y hops. Bready too. Very bitter opening, which smoothes out in the middle with some sweet caramel and nutty malting, which once more gives way to a long, intense bitter finish. If you like bitterness in your beer (which I do), then you’ve found your ale. This may best Scotch Irish’s Corporal Punishment (at least as of late) for bitterness. Remarkable in flavour and body for just 4.7% abv. Excellent ale. LarryBeast (616) - - JUL 6, 2012
500ml bottle. Deep copper with thin white head. Complex aroma includes half-cooked bread dough, wood smoke, dark fruit, caramel, leather, green hops, vanilla, toffee. Light sour/heavy bitter, edibly thick and robust. Hearty, like a country meal. Meat and potatoes with some spice. Crisp, sharp bitter bite to the finish. Next to no carbonation. Shades of Yorkshire fields. Slacks (615) - Bolton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2009
Draught @ Bar Volo: Pours copper in colour, little white head. Smells almost cheesy, weird. Tastes like red grapefruit and caramel malts, quite a bit of flavour to be had, most of it from hops. Ok. dmschefke (575) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Bottle thanks to Matt7215. Pours a slight brownish amber with medium off-white head. Aroma of hops, caramel, malt, and slight chocolate. Flavor similar with the addition of wheat, spice, and a slight sweetness. Very dry on the palate. Good flavor, bad finish.
