Deep orange-amber, a little hazy with an orange-tinged head. Aromas of citrus oils and soft fruit with some woody notes. These features carry over nicely into the palate, although I found it to be a little thin and overly carbonated. Still very enjoyable. phaleslu (10325) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2010
341 ml bottle via trade with MrManning- thanks, Len! Pours dark for an APA, a dark reddish amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, caramel malts, earthy notes, and a slight spicy note. Flavor of citrusy hops, caramel malts, tea, apples, and wet leaves. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a tea mouthfeel. Nice sessionable APA from Toronto. KyotoLefty (10311) - Kyoto, JAPAN - SEP 20, 2008
On tap at the Brewpub.
Good amber color with lacing. Fruity, hoppy aroma, seems like cascade taking the lead. Flavor of darkish malts, caramel. Big and well-balanced with a bitter hoppy finish. Hop-driven and well-done. sebletitje (10089) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 7, 2015
473ml can, via tarde, thanks Asheft.
Ambrée, col blanc.
Arôme est malté, caramel moyen, léger bouquet houblonné noble.
Palais est malté pâle, caramel, houblonné dans un style fleuri et fruité-citronné pour une fine amertume. Malté reste persistant avec une fine couche de grillé en fin de bouche. JorisPPattyn (10025) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 10, 2006
Foxy amber; good off-white creamy head. Gorgeous hoppy-grapey nose, dry, hay. Dry-bitterish with quite some sweetness underneath. Retronasal fully hoppy (USA hops). Medium bodied, certain slickness. Very good American amber ale. Not a hopmonster, but a fine well-hopped beer, with plenty to tell you. Thanks, TW.

341mL thanks to solidfunk. Pours deep amber with a larger, beige head. Sheen appearance and rockier retention. Soapy lacing. Nose is decently hoppy, small orange peel, but dominated by sweet rolls and heavy malt. Taste is malt forward, sweet rolls, quite bready with hints of fruit juiciness. No soap, no cheesy hops, no stale candies, no stickiness. Not so bad. Should be moved to Amber Ale. Tannic, sharper palate. MartinT (9932) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 11, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2005 Christmasy-copper ale with peppery, wooden hopflakes and a generous dose of citrus fruit...Malt is a bit low profile, but caramel and earthiness are steady and hold the hops efficiently...No grandiloquence here, just a plain and simply tasty pale...

On tap. Rich amber colour, thin sticky white head. Cascade aroma, some sweet caramel malt. Flavour is sweet up front, with bready and toasty malts mingling nicely with light citrus hop character. I would like a bit more hop aroma, but still quite good. 3fourths (9349) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2009
Deep rusty colored red body with a thick-bubbled dirty tan head. Nose: caramel malt, bread crust, little to no aromatic hops. Silky carbonation, finely bubbled, smooth across the tongue turning slightly sweet (citrus, maple) in the finish. Resinous, woody, nutty, caramel-heavy, but the low carbonation and the body are well-suited for the mild hop presence and use of bread/cracker-heavy malt. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2009 [093-20061104] Tap @ Mill St. (Toronto, ON). Hoppy aroma. Clear, dark amber body with a medium-foamy off-white head and bubbles along the outer rim. Quite a clean and distinct hoppy, grainy flavour. Medium body that may be ascerbic. Beautiful colour! (6/5/7/3/14) 3.5
[1802B-20081017] Cask. Slightly farty hops aroma with mild smoky earth and an off floralness. Slightly hazy, amber brown body with a long-lasting bubbly off-white head. Mild tea and smoky earth and green green hops continues in the flavour. Medium body. Extra green is not extra great. (6/3/7/3/12) 3.1
