DuffMan (10424) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 28, 2007
Pours an opaque cloudy golden amber with a rather short lived head. Aroma reminds me of baked apples, including the expected spiciness such a description implies. Lively palate with fine carbonation, fruity yeast and spices, wheaty esters (I know the label says barley malt). Quick finish, zesty. An unusual take on an amber ale, but a welcome one that I enjoyed.

jercraigs (10365) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 6, 2003
Pours a hazy dark amber. Aroma is yeasty with citrusy notes. A dry finish after sweet malt and yeast in the flavour.

Brown sugar and yeast…Some caramel malt and cereal…Somewhat of a void…

Golden beer, no head. The aroma is nicely spicy. A bit of apricot and some light spiciness. There is a touch of clove and fruit. Light body, low bitterness. A pretty balanced brew.

blankboy (7689) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2006
Bottle shared with HogTownHarry & tupalev -- courtesy of me. Pours a cloudy dark reddish-brown with a small diminishing white head. Nice enough aroma of malt, yeast, citrus and spices. Flavour is quite yeasty with some spices and malt. Kind of Saison-ish. Dry finish. It’s not great but it goes down easy and is fairly refreshing and that’s O.K..
