On tap @ Bistro on Roe Gander, NL. Pours a dark gold bordering amber with a slight haze and a chunky white head. Aromas are of crystal malts (reminds me of an ESB). Tastes are a little closer to an IPA with some hop assertiveness punching through but still quite malt heavy. Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a medium length. Utter finish.

Bottle at a brilliant hotel in Port Rexton (the Fishers’ Loft) that will hopefully be allowed to sell the local brews some time soon. OK, as a Brit I know our own IPAs have a reputation for being a tad restrained but there is subtle and there is underpowered and this one is the latter. Dabs of English hops, a flabby body for a 5.7% ABV beer and, well, not much else. Ferris (15275) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 15, 2016
Draft - Pale malts, citrus pith and biscuit. Clear gold with a decent white head. Citrus and bitterness with a pale malt finish. Surprisingly decent. Hidden_Pooch (518) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - NOV 21, 2014
One of Quidi Vidi tastier offerings, in that it has a actual taste instead of iceberg BS. Pours a very light clear amber with a nice size head. Aroma is of caramel, toffee, herbs, and earthy hops. Tastes of toffee, caramel, earth, and herbs. Has a medium smooth body with average carbonation. A nice unique take on the style that is more malt forward, but I am okay with that.

This is....pretty damn good! I had a few of Quidi Vidi’s light beers at a PEI Beer Festival and was not impressed so this is a huge improvement. It’s a pretty blonde amber with a muscular ivory noggin. A wallop of sweet biscuit malt paired with mildly spicy, earthy herbal hops is very pleasant to the olfactories. The taste is not at all typical of North American IPAs, which is nice. Very malt forward and bitter in a quintessentially British manner, almost politely bitter and not at all aggressive. Nice lacing on this medium bodied, lightly oily and mid-low carbonated UK’d treat.

Pours clear orange with an initial frothy head and tons of lacing. Nose is a bit of English tea. Notes is tea, some light fruit, some light graham cracker, light earthy bitterness. Tastes light/med sweet and light bitter. Pretty watery body with low-ish carbonation. SkinSquad (6) - Stephenville Crossing, Newfoundland, CANADA - JUL 26, 2013 does not count
Very nice golden color with very little carbonation. Plenty of hops in this beer, definitely the predominant taste off the top. The aftertaste is pleasantly smooth and mild for a 5.7% beer. Not a bad beer overall! HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 14, 2013
Sample at Picaroon's Brewer's Bash. British style IPA, floral and earthy hops, relatively bitter, but not in an adventurous way. Sweet, malt behind it, almost like a bitter. Overall, too English style for me, but a nice attempt.

Draft clear yellow. Nose some floral hop and malt. Taste floral hop, light on the bitterness. Mid palate sweetness followed by a light finish. nick146 (18) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - APR 15, 2013
Picked up a six-pack last week and it instantly become one of my favorites. This beer has a smooth, flavorful taste, with just enough hopping to give a sharp aftertaste. Initial head which quickly dissipates into nothing. Color is amber-orange. Smells spicy, yet fruity. Taste is bitter yet sweet. A great beer overall, definitely would buy again.
