341ml bottle from LCBO bought a while ago by wife. Aroma: caramel, old cereals, medicinal notes as it warms up. App: clear copper reddish, medium frothy off white head, little retention, good lacing. Taste and palate: medium body, medium sweetness, more caramel in mouth, moderate carbonation, moderate bitter finish. Overall: not so good but way better than expected. A sweet, sticky ale. As the expression says well: a swill a day keeps the doctor away. Dp. mathieuc (3989) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2016
Pours a clear copper with a small offwhite head that leaves some lacing. Nose is of caramel, pine and something that could be alcohol (that would be strange, coming from a 5% ABV brew) but that I will call hop oils for now. Taste is moderately bitter and offers mostly caramel again. Body is light, carbonation moderate and mouthfeel is watery. It was alright overall but really oldschool and a bit watered down. Way too much caramel. tom10101 (6084) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 15, 2016
Can (473 ml), shared. Clear golden with a small white head leaving little lacing. Aroma is bland with caramel notes, mild spiciness and herbal notes. Taste is also rather boring with caramel, mild spiciness, herbal notes and mild bitterness. Medium body, but somewhat weak and watery. Medium carbonation. Herbal and mildly earthy-mineral finish. Short aftertaste. Not bad, rather easy drinking but bland and boring. VincentDamon (503) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 22, 2016
Nouveauté sur nos tablettes au Québec. Bière rousse aux reflets acajou, exhaussée d’une mousse généreuse. Nez intéressant de malt grillé avec des noisettes. En bouche, c’est goûteux, riche, la texture est parfaite : notes de malt, de houblons, de noisettes, de caramel. C’est complexe et agréable. Au-delà de mes attentes. Cheers!

Pours clear mahogany with pretty tall off-white head. Aroma of rye, caramel, light resin. Taste is sweetish with a rye and resin bitter finish. Light, smooth body with soft carbonation. KoNrRiI (1511) - Århus, DENMARK - MAR 28, 2016
0.341 bottle. Clear, gold color and a small, white head. Aroma of citruses, pines, and grass. Taste is crisp, toast, citruses, some malts. A medium body, a slick texture, and an average carbonation. Finish is medium long and relatively sweet. Overall not a bad pale ale, but it is still just a pale ale. sulawang (1161) - - MAR 7, 2016
Visual: (seasonal sampler 6-pack). Pours reddish brown with no significant head, super thin hazy retention, singular micro streams all over.
Nose: brown sugar booze-laced toffee malts. (lvl-5)-pungency
Attack: crisp, thin entry
Mid-palate: toasted malt backbone, (lvl-4-sweetness), half-creamy, dry grassy hops, tongue prickly,
Finish: hints of vanilla, thin body residual barley malt finish.
Summary: Decent drinkability with okay complexity of malt, hops, and a touch of spice. It’s a bit thin in mouthfeel though. Bierdimpfe (640) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 28, 2016
Slightly hazy dark amber, almost copper color, beige 1 finger head, lasting 2 minutes, with good legs and tons of activity.
Sweet aromas of nutty toffee and bitter spices. Inviting smell. Very sour toasty citrus flavors. Heavily spicy with a thick hoppy feel.
Medium body with subtle carbonation, strong finish with a long bitter smoky mouth coat and a dry end.
Overall : Packed with flavors, but slightly off in freshness and not finding the bitterness pleasing.
