Loose bottle found at the shop for cheap. Seeing review dates I get the feeling this is probably on the old side. I like to taste the old. Smells fruity with a mix of sweet and dry malts. Cereal flakes, caramel, something blended with a pseudo chocolate. Holy shit, Oilers come back down 4-1 and beat the Av’s 6-4 with a team record 56 shots - cool. Taste is pretty good - straight up mellow malty beer with just enough hops to make this enjoyable. Brain has turned off. That’s enough details I think.
355ml brown bottle. Pours deep gold, light haze. Small white head on top, nice spotty lacing. Nose has caramel malts and orange notes. Taste has caramel sweetness with some citrus notes. Nice finish with some citrus and grassy bitterness that lingers. Light bodied with normal carbonation. Simple but tasty. Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 3, 2013
Pours a clear golden copper with a small white head that dissipates into a ring. Aroma of sweet caramel, bready malts and a hint of grassy hops. Taste is caramel, bready malts, grassy hops and a nice smooth bitterness. Finishes fairly dry with moderate carbonation. Narnad (1521) - Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Pours a deep orange color with a modest white head to top it. Aroma is a toasted malt and light earthy hops bitterness with just a touch of non-sugary essence of maple syrup at the tail end. Flavor has a very modest toasted presence with a touch of grassy/earthy bitterness. Body is perfect with a great lightness, light dryness and zero sugary presence. Overall a pretty good bitter. The toasty presence in the brew is fantastic and puts a lot of other "light" beers to shame. Wish this was a local option for me. andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 8, 2013

355ml bottle pours a light murky brown color with a finger of white head that leaves some spots of lacing. Aroma is earthy and citrus with some hints of caramel. Taste is light citrus with some earthy bitterness and a caramel malty sweetness. Light bodied with mild carbonation. A decent bitter, but nothing special.

Single bottle purchased from Zyn Liqour in Calgary, AB on 07/06/2012. Colour: Medium brown with minimal white lacing. Nose: Caramel softened malt with mixed in fudge. Lots of fresh yeast as well. Taste: Medium-light sweet, medium-light bitter, light sour. Light milk chocolate on-set then some roasted pecan and malt. Woody and slightly bitter through the finish. Nothing wrong here.

Bottle. Medium amber colour, thin off white head. Aroma is simple brewers cereal, a little toasty. Flavour is toasty caramel, raw tobacco, and a hint of butterscotch. I thought I got some marmalade early on but I couldn’t find it again later. Pretty simple, but an easy drinker for summer. presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle. Copper with minimal head. Caramel aroma with something weird around the edges. lmost like malt, vegetable and bronze. Similar taste; is that a hint of tobacco? dresden (1581) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUN 27, 2012
Saw that patrick had rated this and remembered I had one in the fridge! This beer has almost no aroma at all. I got my nose wet trying to pick it up. Werid. A nice looking beer, clear with great lacing. Nice and bitter, with some grain. A nice English style bitter that could easily be a session beer.
