Good amber color,small white head that faded quickly leaving little behind.Malty caramel aroma with a hint of hops.Nice caramel flavor up front with a decent hop showing and a slight sweet side in the beginning and mild bitter sweet side coming on towards the end.Nice brew that is nothing overly great but is decent enough to have on a more daily after work kind of thing.Thanks go to OKBeer for sending this brew my way. mds (2256) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2004
bottle. pours an amber colour with a big fluffy white head. fruity, biscuity, and spritzy aroma not unlike a champagne. Malty flavour. very smooth and crisp. finish is dry. it’s actually pretty good, I’d probably drink it again! pintbypint (3924) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 24, 2004
Sampled from 341ml brown bottle. Grainy, slightly yeasty, fruity aroma. Orange appearance, white uneven but thin head. Sweet tasting, caramel notes, slightly yeasty finish. Aurelius (5652) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2004
Crackery, whole grain or biscuit malt aroma. Medium orange, tall head, label is a bit overdone. Grainy upfront flavors followed by darkish lager flavors, then growing lagerish and finally a bit tart. Dry and Marzenlike. Foarm is metallic. Sessionweight body with a dry amber malt finish. Some starchy sweetness after a bit.

Pours deep gold with a reddish hue. Off white sudsy head. Nose of toast. Wood and butterscotch. Rich and malty. Good mouthfeel. Some very tasty caramel and bitter balance. Traces of yeast and perhaps a little smoke or charred wood. Extremely light chocolate in the slightly sour dry finish. Not bad for a buck and a half. swiseman (536) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 4, 2004
What struck me most about this beer was its stunning amber color - very appealing to the eye. taste contained hints of both fruit and nut with a slightly bitter finish. I may try it again sometime. wnp22 (698) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2004
Tasted in Toronto from LCBO. Tasted in dimple mug. Tasted at 5C. Colour is deep copper with a light sustained white head. Carbonation bubbles are evident. Estery, fruity aroma. Sweet malty caramel notes. Relatively sweet scent. The flavour doesn't hold up well relative to the aroma. Fairly boring taste. Watery, thin, with only a slight caramel hint. Finishes with a bitterness that stays in the back of your throat. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2003
UPDATED: APR 11, 2004 Clear amber robe with neglectable head that is fugacious. Shy malty aroma. Taste of honey and caramel, very fizzy on the tongue. A light fruitiness of peaches hides a slight tartness, lightly bitter finish, not too hoppy. Could definitely have been worse in this style.

Copper color, foamy head. Caramel, raw grains, a bit of yeast in the aroma. Malty flavor with a hint of saltiness. Could use a little more hops but still a good malt/hops balance. Average but good.
