On tap, Kildare House, Windsor Ontario. Dark amber pour with a soft white head. Nutty malt aroma. Flavour is malty with trace of citrus hops. Restrained bitterness. Light body and carbonation. Was a good session ale. Imperial-John (192) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2008
On tap at Rhino in westend Toronto. Amber with white head. Sweet hoppy malt aroma. Flat, sweet light malt with very little bitterness. ESB my ass. I hope I just got a bad pour and it isn’t supposed to taste that bad. JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2007
POurs deep amber with nice notes of bitterness. The hops show a decent amount of flavor on the finsh but the bitterness comes thriugh. Bobsy (194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 4, 2007
On cask at the Mill Street Brew Pub. A noticeably bitter taste, with good hops coming through. An easy drink, but not overly impressive.

Fruity hops nose, some malt, deep copper, pours a fair sized toffee head. Flavour has pitfruit, hops and lots of malt. Really well balanced, light bodied, easy drinking. Lovely session ale. Well done again Michael Duggan! Can’t wait to try this on Cask. TheJester (2543) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 12, 2007
Growler from the brewery. Copper orange in colour with little head or lacing. Nice malty aroma with brown sugar and coffee. Tastes very much as it smells, with the addition of a lovely lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel is tinny and a little thin - not unusual for the style. Pretty good. I’ll get this one again. mephisto (1294) - TAIWAN - AUG 8, 2007
draft at volo in toronto. it has malty aroma with hint of caramel, the flavor is whisky and overall it is well balanced and smooth. frankenkitty (2014) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - JUL 13, 2007
Served as a deep, coppery/red with golden lowlights under an ecru head settling to a watery film. Aromas are dry & lemony with orange rind and tea bitters. Quite aromatic, actually. Balanced flavor leaning towards bitterness, a bit like sucking on a full-flavored tea bag. Mid-bodied with a thinning sharpness and mild mineral notes in the finish. My wife says, "I could totally session this", and I agree.

On tap at Volo. Unimpressed. Similar to their tankhouse ale, but without the flavour. Bitter, but unpleasingly so. The brew is not your run of the mill beer, but it just made me cringe.
