UPDATED: NOV 27, 2007 This ale poured a slightly cloudy dark orange colour with a big frothy dense head, light tan in colour. Very hoppy scent at first. Then came the orange citrus and a little spice at the end. First sip was very hopped, quite a bite. Bitter finish with a little roasted malt and toffee. Overall, way too bitter. They really need to back off on the hopps on this one. After 2 - 600ml glasses I couldn’t drink any more. Thats no good when you have just bought almost 2 litres. Flavour after a while is almost acidic.

Not bad this is one of my favourites from the brewery. Clean brown with light head. Aroma has some sweet malts and a bit of breadiness to it. Flavour is a little buttery and like fresh white bread but it has a nice amout of bitter to it. Medium body.

Bottle at Volo. The color is amber with a thin beige head. The taste is of citrus fruits with hops and malt that gives it it’s sweetnes. For me this is an average ale.

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.

Pours an amber brown with a thick almond top and great lacing. Aroma is lots of malts a little sulphur and earthy hops. Taste is a great blend of malt and light hop and some light cereal. Not bad.

jksipa (1018) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2014
500ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a clear deep amber with small off white head that quickly fades. Nose is caramel and roasted malts with floral hops . Sweet toffee, vanilla and some banana with a light citrus bitterness in the finish. Slightly watery slick mouth with soft carbonation. Hops never really come through in the taste.

HopsandBolts (258) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2014
Pours a clear dark brown with minimal white head that quickly dissipates. I love the colour on this one. I get aromas of caramel, yeast and bread but they are pretty mild. The flavours are malt, hops, biscuit and a hint of toffee. This one is an okay amber but I can’t say much more than that. There just isn’t a lot of flavour and it seems rather watery.

lesifflebiere (1928) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2014
Bière cuivrée à la mousse rare, au nez sucré de raisins et de malts caramel ; assez mince, et limpide. La bouche est sucrée dans les mêmes tons, avec un effet de boisé qui persiste longtemps, avec des noisettes en finale. Un genre de rousse qui a l’avantage de son originalité et du certain tranchant de ses houblons, mais qui lasse assez vite avec ses notes parfois bizarres. Correcte, fort acceptable même, mais loin d’un grand cru.

Raistlin (459) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2015
Brown redish colour with minimal head. Not a lot of carbonation which is to be expected. Bit of earthy aroma almost toasty. Bit of floral feel to it. Medium bitterness to it and medium body as well. Slick texture to it and smooth finish.
