A pretty good brew. Pours a clear, golden amber with a thick beige head. The nose is nutty and caramelized with hints of citrus and spicy hops. A bit nutty with a finish of spicy Golding’s hops. A bit astringent. RobertDale (6856) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - OCT 10, 2014
500 ml. bottle. Thanks Doug. Pours reddish brown with a nice beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and fruit. Taste is malt, caramel, fruit, and a bit of grassy hops. Pretty good. cmacklin (1310) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 20, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours a dark mahogany red with an average, tan head that laces. Sweet aroma of roasted malt, fruit, caramel and yeast. Sweet flavour of fruit, caramel and roasted malt with a mild bitter finish. Medium body with a watery texture and mild carbonation. Pretty decent.

Thanks to my friend Nic for bringing this one back from his East Coast trip. Second Irish Ale of the day. Pours a clean copper-amber colour with a big frothy warm beige head that lasts very long creating some thick foamy-creamy lace. Caramel nose with lost of spices. Again, caramel malt taste with some sourness (probably from not being fresh). Medium-light oily body. Much better than the one I had earlier. Have to try a fresh one when I visit.

Probably one of the better amber ales I have had. Nice and smooth, very nice malty flavours.

Elle est rousse et limpide, alors qu’une mousse fière la recouvre. Elle laisse de belles traces. Malt caramel au nez, même très caramélisé. Une effervescence à point fait relever des pointes poivrées au travers le malt. Il y a aussi des saveurs de caramel au travers un côté minéral. Loin d’être extraordinaire, elle n’est pas banale non plus. (Amsterdam Inn de Fredericton) (1174-060814) presario (4925) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 1, 2014
Light looking body. Crisp red. Thin head. Light aroma is more potato than meat. Thin body, old taste. johnnnniee (4408) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle from the brewery store in Fredericton.
Pours a beautifully clear reddish amber color with a decent sized frothy tan head that shows great retention. Aromas of caramel and toffee with a hint of earthy hops. Diacetyl rest, what’s that? The flavor is rich and malty with lots of caramel, butterscotch and toffee. Burnt sugar and light earthy hop flavor to counter the maltiness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. The diacetyl fits a bit better with this style than some of the others I’ve had from them, a bit too much for my palette.

500ml bottle pours a deep amber color with a finger and a half of beige head that leaves no lacing on the glass. Aroma is dominated by caramel with some grass and spice. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a light grass and spicy hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with decent carbonation. A decent brew for the style, but nothing really stands out. czar (9430) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 3, 2013
pours hazy copper with a nice beige head, good retention and lacing. spices and caramel, yeast, cloying molasses, some fruitiness, earthy. moderate carbonation, light body - oily, herbal-grassy-spicy short finish. meh.
