Randy4Beer (513) - - NOV 26, 2014
Kind of sweet with a honey-like appearance, nose, and palate. Doesnt quite get to caramel on the malts but there is the beginning of something sweet on the tongue. A bit of toffee. No hop presence and no bitterness to speak of. Not a particularly balanced beer. Completely forgettable. Will never purchase again, as this is an "also ran" in the crowded craft beer market.

Can. Amber pour with a minimal white head. aroma was a tad sweet, honey, biscuit. Taste was similar, touch of caramel and toasty malt. Better than their lager, fairly enjoyable.

Jayseppi (159) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 4, 2014
A lot of honey and graham cracker on the nose of this beer. This translates into the flavour as well, but the taste is too far on the sweet side with out any bitterness to balance it. Honey brown colour and a rather smooth texture. Overall its too sweet to really be enjoyable.

GarnotingPete (777) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 4, 2014
Bire ambre, limpide et coiffe dun phmre col blanc. Au nez, un caramel gnrique un peu fruit. Elle est moyennement amre et un peu acide. Elle est mince, de corps lger et se termine honntement sur un peu damertume.

lesifflebiere (1817) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 21, 2014
Boisson orange tirant sur le brun clair, film de mousse blanche nourri par une effervescence qui semble assez importante. Odeurs de sucre dorge, de caramel, laisse prsager des saveurs de sucre brun. Au got, relativement lgre, armes de sucre dorge, les saveurs sont justes, le tout est trs accessible, mais cest une ambre gnrique, le genre que les brasseries industrielles fabriquent. Agrable, mais rien de spcial.

Quevillon (3024) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
473 ml can purchase at the Hawkesbury LCBO on Decembre 12, 2013. Light amber, thin head. Aroma of malted barley slightly sweet, notes of berries. The taste is quite the same thing, a touch sour, a little bitter. Well it is your micro that taste like macro but dont tell them that!

Strangebrewer (1272) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 1, 2013
can. Poured clear amber-orange with a thin white head. Sweet malt aroma, very mild. Mouthfeel is clean and crisp, light-average body. Bready malt flavour, sweet notes of orange and a touch of grassy hops. Nice session.
