Chocolate lovers get down on this. Possibly the best red ale on the market. If you like ale; are Canadian; and you go back to Ricakrds; you have no soul.

Well, I aint even gonna be shy about it, I loved this beer. It has a pretty shitty rating but I loved it. I am still curious as to why Red Ale" is not a style and must be classified as an Amber when it clearly stands apart. Firstly, this brew is a pretty redhead, a rusted gold with a long lasting head. A wonderful bouquet of burnt toffee, barnyard, fresh bread and buckwheat honey awaits the nose. It is quite sweet and very malty, exactly how I like my reds unless they claim to be Red IPAs or some such hoppy style. Not too bubbly and smoothness like silk make it a pleasure to drink. Id raise this pint any day.

Very good red ale. Can was clever so I bought it. My dad likes reds so I got it for him. We like it. Nice bittery and malty taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I never would of thought this would score so low. Probably only the best Amber I have tasted and one of the better beers. Poured a beautiful rusted gold colour, I got lost just looking into my glass. Aroma was of toffee, leather, barn, and smoke. It tasted of honey, caramel, and toasty malts. Had a medium smooth body with low carbonation. It finished with a smooth honey after taste, that left me wanting more. A very great beer that stands out above other ambers.

Deep cloudy brownish/dark amber color with a copper hue, and powerful activity. Thick slightly creamy beige 1 finger head, lasting around 10 minutes, with strong sexy legs. Flavors of cookies, butterscotch, dark malts, burnt honey, chocolate, lemon, sharp grassy hops, herbal and floral spices. Balanced sweetness and sharpness. Malty, grassy, and a little woody. Slick creamy full body with a perfect zesty amount of carbonation. Medium strength finish, ending with a bitter grassy herbal feel with sweet smoky honey and a lingering roasted malt feel. Overall very good quality craft. Excellent flavors with great freshness. Well balanced and intensified. Highly drinkable and pleasant. Good quality ingredients. Excellent red ale.

CBAC day 8.Pours a rusty brown with a nice frothy light brown head that leaves lots of lace. Aroma of caramel malts, nuts, chocolate and some earthy hops. Taste is caramel malts, toast, nuts, earthy hops and some light sweet chocolate. Not sure why there are so many bad ratings I don?t have any metallic off flavors and this is how an American red ale should be imo. Semi dry finish with a medium low bitterness, very refreshing and drinkable.

A browner beer than I expected, given that it is named House Red and is an Amber Ale. It had a very sweet smell that was intriguing. The taste was darker than I expected with chocolate overtones and a slight bitterness. It had a slightly unpleasant aftertaste but overall was an enjoyable ale.

Great unique amber ale. More hops than a traditional Amber but balanced nicely with the caramel malt. Cloudy with the right amount of carbonation. Great brewery and facility if you are in the lake of bays region.

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2011 Bottle from LCBO: pours a dark brown with reddish tones. Nice cap and lacing. Aroma reveals a good mix of malt and hop varieties. Roasty-toasty-toffee some earthyness, pine and fruits. Flavor is equally as hard to define...a pleasant amalgam of malts with enough hop balance to keep it interesting. Long finish with roasty-toasty malt tones eclipsed by an increasing bittering. A very nice brew, verging on complex but very approachable....a good rendition of the Quebec original style.
