Draft at Whistler mnt. Copper color. Mild aroma, faint barley and grains. Caramal notes. Slight hazelnut. Light bodied. Average carbonation. Pretty smooth. Brettsky06 (423) - Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 3, 2016
Copper pour. Caramel and malty aroma. Taste is a bit nutty and very creamy. Not bad but not the best Phillips beer bdleedahl (435) - , Saskatchewan, CANADA - APR 6, 2016
This beer pours a very clear amber (dark or a cream). Carbonation is low, but not too low. It has a medium-full body and is nice and creamy with very little hop bitterness. There are no off-flavours, there's nothing special about this beer, but it's a nice beer.

Bottle. Medium brown. Light brown sugar nose, and a fairly simple brown malt note. solidfunk (8838) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 30, 2015
Not a lot going on here. Some rusty copper aroma. Amber pour with good head. Tangy finish. Bottle.

341 ml bottle poured at Lar’s place in Red Deer. Pours a copper colour with a thin, almost nonexistent white head. Not a lot of aroma; am picking up a bit of malt. Taste is a little better. Has a nutty, malty flavor but is a bit watery. Easy to drink but isn’t going to win any awards. RhetoricalAns (929) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 27, 2015
Copper pour, weak head. Aroma is caramel, nuts. Taste has some light fruit hops but is very malt forward throughout. Interesting cream ale. sulawang (1154) - - APR 7, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2015 Visual: Pours beer bottle brown, almost no head, barely any retention, many fast steady streams.
Nose: brown sugar caramel malts, a some biscuit/cookie as well. (lvl-5)-pungency
Attack: crisp malty bite
Mid-palate: partially thin-flat mouthfeel, (lvl-4)-sweetness, (MAIN) brown sugar, caramel malts, light cola
Finish: light burpy, light-sweet malty super subtle bitter dry hopped finish.
Summary: Quite boring actually. Just a malty beer lacking any special characteristics.

Bottle. Nutty malt aroma. Pours dark copper with very small head. Creamy malt flavour with notes of nuts and brown sugar. Some sweetness lingering in the finish. Not bad.
