Pours red amber with a small off white head. Malt and carmel aroma and flavour. Clean, crisp with a medium body and medium carbonation. Not bad.

Billed as a red ale, so that may throw me off, nice dark red pour with a tasty light malty body a little bland.

Dark, reddish pour with quick, beige foam. Roasted malt nose with some dried fruit. Medium body, slick texture with little fizz. Caramelly malts come through in the taste with a little hop bitterness. Nicely balanced and easy to drink. Leans toward the porter side of the spectrum. A good beer for a cool night.

Aroma: lots of malt and vanilla; Appearance: clear, dark amber pour with thin white head that lingers; Taste: malt that turns a bit overdone as temp rises; Palate: medium body with long, sweet finish; Overall: okay but ultimately forgettable.

Bière rousse, foncée, pétillante, belle mousse. Nez plutôt casual de caramel. En bouche, la texture est bonne, le malt apporte des notes caramel sans trop d’originalité mais tout de même agréable. Rousse mainstream plutôt agréable. Cheers !

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy dark brown color with a strong amount of subtle activity. Creamy light brown 2 finger sparkling head, lasting around 15 to 20 minutes, with some strong legs.
Aroma of faint ginger bread. Flavors of caramel, faint molasses, a little spicy and syrupy. Bready and highly sugary, but still with a nice sharpness.
Slick smooth light to medium body with a nice carbonation intensity. Light to medium strength finish with a perfectly spiced feel and a hint of peppercorn and ginger.
Overall a very good quality craft having delicious flavors and great freshness. Well balanced and intensified. Would drink this all day long.
