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.

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.

Canned. Clear copper colour, mid sized head. Leafy toasty nose. Mid dry with light-medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Toffee, toast and notes of dates. Floral, leafy hops. MId bitter finish. Uncomplicated and easy going.

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.

Pours a cloudy red amber, should be more clear for the style. Low carbonation helps buoy the malt caramel body. Decent beer, slightly overhopped. Can from sobeys.

Canned. Red brown body, thick beige head. The aroma is malty and slightly sour. The taste has orange and cinnamon. Slightly too bland but quite balanced.

Clear dark red color with a small grayish tan head. Mild hops, dryness, sweet malt and some metal notes in the aroma. The flavor is mild hops, dryness, mild metal and malt. Quite drinkable.

Bierdimpfe (624) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 10, 2016
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.
