Papillon (405) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2009
341 mL Bottle. Amber body with an instantly diminishing fizzy white head. Sweet malt and resiny hops dominate in the aroma. The flavor is sweet malt with a cotton candy-like overtone and hop-bitter aftertaste. Not bad stuff. Lubiere (13969) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2008
A golden ale with a thin white head. Light caramel malt aroma, non-descript. In mouth, a grassy biscuitty malt, some crisp hops, refreshing. Tasted around April 2007. Barnabus (52) - Niagara, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 25, 2008
Bottle. Pours amber, with light carbonation and a small, fully diminishing fizzy head. Aroma (what there is of it) is malt and slight citrus (mostly orange). Medium watery palate with an average length, slightly bitter finish. There is a slight taste of brown sugar in there somewhere as well. tomthompson89 (1982) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2008
bought at lcbo some fruity notes some hops. a little off musty nose on the end, flavor is off slightly sweet but with a really metalic flavor and finish gonna have to buy again or go to the brewery and try again at another time wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - MAY 27, 2008
Pours a proper amber brown, no head though. Aroma is herbal, and lightly floral. The flavour is laid back, with some grain and a bit of hops coming through but really not much to comment on. Refreshing, and local, but pretty uninspired.

341ml bottle from a ontario tasters pack from the LCBO. pours dark orange with a mid off white head. malty grainy aromas. flavours are pretty good but nothing really special to pick out. very easy drinking. pretty standard ontario craft brew. cyrenaica (1143) - Milton, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2008
341ml bottle ILduce (284) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2008
I tried this beer on April 30, 2008 after purchasing an assorted 6 pack of Ontario Craft Brews from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer poured out a beautiful translucent rusty red colour with a generous off-white rocky head. The aroma is heavily grainy malt with some hoppy tones. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied, slightly creamy, with a sour feel on the sides of the tongue. The flavour is roasted malt, some grassy malt, and little hoppy bitterness
341ml bottle: Orange under a medium creamy head. Lively carbonation. Sweet nose with restrained hop character. Tastes like caramel and nuts with a faintly toasted malt backbone. Well-crafted yet still unimaginative. blankboy (7714) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 28, 2008
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber with a small lasting white head. Super mild aroma, and I mean super mild -- c’mon! Some sweetness, grain and maybe hops, it’s really hard to tell as it’s hard to smell much of anything -- I’l have to come back to it. A little later I get some caramel to add to the above. Flavour has some mild toastiness, caramel malt, grain and a light bitter finish. Average bodied. Not awful considering the style (a style I do NOT care for) but I still didn’t much like it. sinkhole (263) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2008
Pours golden amber with a thin white head. Malted aroma. Slight bitter taste with corn sweetness and a hint of nut. Crisp finish with some bitter aftertaste.
Overall a better than average beer, although not really creamy, is still worth a try.
