This should be their flagship beer. Its truly delicious and refreshing. Comparable to Creemore except light beer strength at a Creemore price. Strangebrewer (1308) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2014
bottle. Poured clear dark amber with an average white head. Nice buscuity malt aroma. Medium body, creamy carbonation with a slight metallic dry finish. Sweet caramel malt flavour with an oaky note, some vanilla and hop spice. 97hill (200) - - DEC 31, 2016
Not sure about all the nay saying on this one , yes a touch sweet. But a good quality simple ale for sure. Not always seeking the hop bomb bitter sour thing. Simple beer made well, I like it.

UPDATED: MAY 4, 2009 A decidedly rusty amber, pours a thick and frothy beige head.
In the nose, caramel malts meet toasty spices. I get a lot of chestnut here. There’s a nice fruity component still, where as before it was apples, now it is leaning towards plum. The nose is also quite biscuity. Overall, the aroma has improved compared to last time I noted this beer.
Tastes of sweet caramel, some butterscotch. A good level of biscuit graininess follows with fruit, some vanilla/rye/spices. This one has always come accross as spicy, and I think it is quite nice. Nice hop bite comes mid palate and lasts. This seems hoppier than the last time I took notes.
Medium/Full body, creamy with marked lasting fruity and bitter hoppy aftertaste. This is no longer thin as it used to be. A nice improvement JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2009 On tap at the KW ribfest. I don’t know why its rated so low since it was the best thing they had. Taps a light amber with a white head. Aroma is faint. Floral hops (very minor), and Brit malts. Flavour is very Ontario malt driven if you know what I mean, slightly Earthy and bready, tasty but not very satisfying. Drinks really well as a light watery session ale but really isn’t remarkable in any way. Good.

UPDATED: MAR 13, 2012 March 9 2012, pint bottle. Aroma is of hops, hint of butterscotch very sweet malt. Medium, frothy white head. Beautiful copper orange colour and carbonation through to the end. Sticky lacing clings to glass, not very smooth or attractive. Watery palate, easy to drink. Sweet taste of butterscotch, hint of malt apple and spice with slight bready aftertaste. Refreshing, light and easily the most drinkable offering from Railway City I have tasted. ChadPoole (478) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2017
Pours dark cooper with a quick fading white head. Aroma and flavours are sweet malts and biscuit with a slight bitter finish. Enjoyable. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2008
[1623-20080823] Bottle. Weird dried flower powder aroma. Clear, amber red body with a quick foamy off-white head. Mild grainy floral malt flavour has a sweet fruity finish. Light-medium body. Drinkable, enjoyable finish.

Pint bottle from brewery. Pours with an average creamy white head. Dissipates very quickly, unfortunately, leaving only a messy lace that sticks to the glass. Clear, slightly sparkling honey orange colour (Lovibond 8/9). Good carbonation. Faint aroma of light hops. To me, other scents are undetectable but not a bad thing. Flavour is of mild hops but crisply balanced so as not to produce an aftertaste. Really clean on the palate. My guess is this would be a good thirst-quenching reward on a parching hot day. Final thoughts: fairly good unless youre looking for interesting or flavourful fare. Tranquillity (2324) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2017
Canned. Very lively, huge beige head. The body is hazy orange. The aroma has raisins, licorice, roasted malts. The taste is spicy, with some more licorice. Very nice overall.
