The true session beer with lots of "red magic" going on. This is a well-balanced, medium-bodied beer with a moderately sweet malt aroma brewed with five different malts and balanced by a subtle hop flavour.

Boutip (6273) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 19, 2017
Can: Poured a deep amber color ale with an off-white foamy head with good retention and light lacing. Aroma of dry caramelized malt with some cereal notes also noticeable. Taste is a good mix of cereal with some dry caramelized malt and a dry finish. Body is about average with good carbonation. Very well brewed and highly drinkable.

chinchill (4830) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2016
On tap at the brewery taproom. Clear but slightly hazy copper body topped by a good if bubbly head. The aroma seems a bit of but the moderately hoppy flavor is better. Earthy English(?) hops. Medium, light carbonation. Moderately bitter.

OOKPIKABLE (193) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2015
Can brought from Halifax: thanks, Dad! Pours amber with thick white head. Aroma of honey, brandy, butterscotch and pine. Smooth yet full mouthfeel. Nice.

Hidden_Pooch (518) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - OCT 24, 2014
This truly has red magic and you get hit with all five malts. Pours a bubbly hazy amber with a little bubbly head. Wicked aroma of caramel malts, toffee, and brown sugar. Tastes of caramel, toffee, malt tea, and brow bread. Had a medium smooth body with average carbonation and just felt a little watery at times, but everything else is bang on.

Dammmmmmm son! Surpirsed as heck by this, not because it was in a can, not because its possibly North Americas most ambiguous style but because the can was all dented! Anyhow, this is what a Red Ale should taste like if I may opine as such. A tad light in colour but still red with a light beige head. Notes of honey, caramel, walnuts, brown bread, cigars and light herbal hops play magical musicals to the nostrils. The taste is all of that, sweet up front and finishing bitter but leaving the malty goodness lingering. So fresh and amazingly good mouthfeel, chewy and medium soft carboation with a rich silky smooth body. Hook me up with a dozen to session....smiles!

12oz can into an English pint. Pours a reddish amber with a quarter-inch off-white head. Rich, malty nose with a bit of dried fruit; malty sweetness and something a bit nutty? Medium- to medium-full body.

HeistAlmighty (1156) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 21, 2011
650ml bottle from Bishops Cellar in Halifax. Poured a dark cloudy mahogany with very little off white head. It was a little flat. I bought this back in June and kept it in the fridge until now so Im not sure if that was a factor. Aroma was malty with some nut and earth tones. Taste was more woodsy malts, and an odd sour taste with some hops on the finish. Tiny bit on the flat/watery side, but that might have been my storage and it certainly didnt ruin it. Overall, sourness in an amber was unexpected but not unwelcome. Definitely worth a try.

1L bottle. frothy head and decent carbonation with a cloudy but red colour. malted and slightly roasted having a real fruit character as well. palate is medium bodied, having a bitter flavour that is balanced by a slight sweetness. Overall a decent everyday red ale.

DuffMan (10148) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 3, 2011
Bottle, deep mahogany, medium beige head. Sweet fruity caramel aroma. Sweet malty palate, dark caramel, butterscotch, vague fruit, hints of cocoa and nuts. Quite flavorful, but also quite sweet, with no real bitterness to speak of.
