Bottle. One of my favorite of the GRB beers. Light copper pour with a very strong head. Beautiful punchy malt and hops. The newer recpie is a little less punchy, but darn good nontheless. Well balanced, realtively complex.. but very east to drink. Well done Rob!

500ml bottle. Intense amber body, almost wine like, medium creamy yellowish head. Aroma is a delight, bready sweet, hops, malt, caramel, hint of vanilla....is this a 4.7% abv? Taste is very malty, with tons of hops, almost feels like an oak barrel aged beer, piney, oily mouth-feel, dry and refreshing. Excellent.

Papillon (424) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 13, 2013
500 mL Bottle. Amber body with a thin foamy off-white head that settles to a thin but tenacious layer leaving plenty of stringy and almost spider web-like lace. Rich malty aroma, crystal malt standing strong with it’s intense malt-syrupy aspect; hints of pear and clover, an innuendo of honey, and resiny hops that "play peek-a-boo". The flavor is a solid one of sweet malts that would be very much at home in an English pub -and I like that style. There is a sweetness that is very clover honey-like and that I find very likeable -and I don’t normally like sweet beers. A mildly grassy hop bitter takes over in the aftertaste and finish. A bonus point for what I consider to be a great brew.

OK some days you just need simple tasty beer. Uncomplicated, tasty beer. Kind of a home town brand for me but 1st try. Real beer plain and simple no hoppyness no saison. Just good old basic quality beer. After a bike ride Can from LCBO

Shared growler from brewery, served cold in a Stella chalice. NOV17/07.

App.: Medium amber, clear, decent whitish head. Aroma: Some soft, biscuity malts, lovely dank piney hops, light fruitiness. Palate: Medium body and medium-soft carbonation, a touch astringent. Flav.: Some caramel and crunchy toffee, slightly nutty, lighter hops than on the nose but same profile, lightly off-dry, with a good bitter finish.

Really nice. My brother and I killed the bottle the next day after it had sat out over night. Even slushy it was a pleasure to drink. I will certainly get more, even if I have to drive 7 hours to do so!

on tap at volo. nicd amber pour, good aroma od sweet malt, and some nice hopping.Here is also a touch of caramel, and maybe some ripe fruit. Flavour is smooth, and malty, some nice bready chewy malts. A really nice amber ale, super sessionable beer, a great daily drinker.

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.
