Light amber color, very fizzy, medium head. Sweet, caramel aroma, similar to their Scottish PA, with toffee, cherries, butterscotch. Buttery, caramel flavor. Sweet but not too much so. Slightly creamy, with a bit of hops. Finish dries out a bit, with more hops and even a touch of citrus in over the malt. Light to medium body, slightly high carbonation. An interesting lager, similar to a Vienna, with a malt signature like their PA. It is sweet and full-flavored but very well balanced. Not fabulous, but good drinking and interesting.

A solid lager, and one that’s recently been reformulated — might explain my higher-than-average rating. A thin, but persistent head topped a light copper body. Syrupy sweet aroma with some bready malt and only faint floral hops. Far more balance detected in the flavour, where caramel sweet malt and toasted grain flavours gave way to dry, mildly bitter hops. Enjoyable, even if it’s not "strongly hopped" as it says in the commercial description.

473ml can, 5% a/v
Pours a fiery copper colour, with a middling tan head. The aroma is malt, dark sugar and hops. The taste is a bit metallic, fairly sweet and unrefined with very little hops to balance it. Creamy mouthfeel and a bit of an unpleasent aftertaste. All the problems are minor so its not a bad beer but it could be much much better.

473 mL can. Copper-orange with a small but persistent head. Aroma of malt, brown sugar, a little hops, and tin. The flavour is decent for a lager, but quite sweet. The hops are there, but not enough. A bit of grainy bitterness at the end. Creamy. Medium to thin body. Nicely carbonated. A decent lager. Illuminatus (92) - Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2008
473mL can from the LCBO. Pours an appealing orange/amber, with a one-finger white head. Lacking in aroma, mostly thin malt. Decent mouthfeel, not overcarbonated. Sweet malt, a slight fruit note, lightly hopped. A good lager. barncatmatt (2286) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2008

473ml can from MrManning - thanks Len! Dark orange-gold with a small white head. Nose is sweet honey and fruit over grain. Flavor is more of the same. Not bad, but the Creemore I had before it flogs it like a rented mule.
