TheJester (2542) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2016
473 mL can. Nice amber-brown colour, and a huge foamy head. Other than this its a fairly run-of-the-mill amber ale.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 15, 2015
Pours a clear medium brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma of nuts, caramel, roasted malts and toast. Taste is caramel malts, light chocolate, toast and a lot of roasted malt on the finish with a bitter after taste. Not at clean as a browns should be and too bitter.

Back to basics here. A nicely balanced amber that is slightly bitter, yet toasty and roasty. A good find. Easy drinking. Give me more.

On draft at Johnny Farinas. A brownish, dark copper colour with thin white head. I was quite surprised at how hoppy this one was on both the nose and palate. I was expecting a malty beer, but was pleasantly surprised by that strong hop profile. Very easy drinking, but with some kick to it, and it was a great pairing with their Kichesippi Beer Pie pizza.

355 ml bottle from brewery. Pours a clear chestnut colour with thin light tan head. Aroma is toasty with caramel and nuts. Flavour is toasty grains, caramel, nuts and a mild bitterness. Average body. Nothing wild but decent.

lesifflebiere (1763) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 12, 2014
Assez fonce, couleur cola la lumire, avec une mousse couleur crme. Bien malte en nez ; ses armes de grains rtis se transposent en bouche, o le mlange est bien rond, variant entre le torrfi, le sucre dorge et les noisettes. Plutt simple, aurait profit dun houblonnage plus intense, mais le tout est rellement agrable. Offrande solide de la part de cette brasserie ontarienne.

piscator34 (2386) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Draft sample. Pale amber in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas are of bready and caramel-like malts, along with minerals. Flavors are of simplistic bready malts and a residual table sugar sweetness. Pretty bland overall. Reminds me a bit of Creemore or Barking Squirrel, but less good.
