Frothmeister's rating

Frothmeister (741) - Ontario, - DEC 13, 2010
473ml can. Pours a clear copper with a beige head. Aroma is heavy with juniper and pine, with some biscuit, floral notes, caramel, and wood. Taste is citrus hops up front followed by sweet malt, caramel, with woody grapefruit finish. Overall, a pretty decent offering and one I’ll buy again.

ogivlado (7300) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 25, 2016
Canned 473ml. -courtesy of and shared with Domagoj from Pivoteka. Out of BBE date for who knows how long because of unreadable print. Dark amber coloured, medium sized tan head, malt and caramel in the nose. Malt and caramel dominates in taste as well with notes of apples and touch of wood. Rather sweet finish. Not the freshest taste here but it could be even worse.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7056) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2015
Sampled from a 473 ml can this beer poured a dark brown color with tan highlights and a huge creamy beige head that lingered forever and left excellent lacing. The aroma was gritty floral and fruity hops. The flavor was bitter, toasty, malty and had a moderate floral hop presence. Medium length hoppy finish. Medium body. Ok.

Franckg (1326) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2015
Well hopped. Hint of caramelized malt. Taste of nuts. Looks like a brown ipa.

ceason (30) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2015
Pours a very deep amber with a medium off-white head. Aromas of caramel malt and light hops. Tastes quite malty with a light bitter finish. Some alcohol in the finish as well. Medium bodied.

yourilevesque (1496) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2015
Magnifique bière à la teinte mi-ambrée, mi-rubis surmontée d’un fier collet de mousse blanc cassé dessinant de jolies dentelles sur les parois du verre. Le nez est un habile mélange de houblons et de noisettes torréfiées. Nez affirmé et chaleureux. En bouche, c’est plutôt mince par contre. Le liquide manque de corps. C’est aqueux et houblonné. On aurait souhaité une plus grande densité. Le nez par ailleurs nous annonçait un malt dominant qui est en fait très timide, à l’instar du houblon qui n’ajoute rien de plus qu’une légère amertume bien quelconque. Je n’aime pas employer cette expression, mais cette bière est un gros pétard mouillé: magnifique, olfactive, mais ça s’arrête à peu près là.

ametras (1372) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2015
473ml can. Dark mahogany with a frothy off-white head. Flavors are toasted / roasted cereals, citrus, resinous hops, grass and toffee with earthy and nutty notes. Medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth texture.

Poured from 473mL can. Mahogany brown with off white beige head. Citrus and grassy hops with subtle apple. Quite a dry finish.

Not evenly remotely "pale" this one is a deep ruby red in the light, with a thin ever so slightly off white head. The aromas are a nice balance of malts and hops, with some plums in the mix. Very similar tastes. A nice bitter finish on the swallow. Overall, this is far from the best beer from Great Lakes, but as an available all year beer, reach for this before any macros.

gregorymconway (227) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 2, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2015 Huge off-white tan foamy head. Hazy brown body with hints of amber. Orange zest, underripe oranges, grapefruit zest, fresh cut grass aroma. Very subtle toffee on the nose as well. Palate quite bitter with more malt flavors on the tongue compared to the nose. Some bakers chocolate is very softly present, however this is very hop based for aroma. Dry finish. Medium to elevated alcohol. Pronounced bitterness with a long finish.

lesifflebiere (1722) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 15, 2014
Boisson très foncée, brune acajou opaque à la lumière, avec une consistance mi-épaisse, un film de mousse, et un nez passablement houblonné mais de façon charmante. Bouche sucrée, maltée mais les houblons ne sont pas en reste. L’amertume est cependant limitée. Apparence déconcertante, sinon impressionnante, mais les saveurs sont non seulement justes pour le style, elles sont également plus agréables que celles de la plupart de ses concurrentes. Belle réussite.
