(Bottle) Pours a murky amber-brown body with a descent off-white head. Aroma of grapes, raisins, and maple syrup. Flavor of malts, caramel, and cola. Slick mouthfeel. Not sure why this is classified as an APA... Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 19, 2001
honey colour, nice head, well-hopped, smooth, bitter, some unpleasant sourness, long aftertaste hopdog (12584) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2005
Bottle acquired in trade with boutip (thanks!). Poured a medium and slightly hazy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, citrus, and somewhat fruity. Tastes of citrus, flowers and fruity. I found the tastes to be on the watery side with a thin body. Ligthtly sweet and very lightly bitter.

12oz bottle-pours a retaining tan head and copper/orange color. Aroma is mild light/medium malt-some caramel, secondary wood/spice hops. Taste is mild light/medium malt-some caramel, secondary wood/spice/hint of citrus zest hops. Mild carbonation. Comes through as more English than American to me. Thanks to jwc215(BA) for sharing.

Carbonation and hop works to make it quite drinkable and a champion Canadian beer. This brewery doesn’t have an inferior product. Excellent balance, above-average smell in head that dissipitates. Can drink this for a long time. Sweet start, excellent clean aftertaste. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 21, 2011
Draught at Nyk’s Bistro Pub, Montréal, QC.hopscotch (11104) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2003
Clear amber colour with small to average sized white head.
Caramel malt and sugary candy sweetness in aroma.
Mild sugary sweet and woody malty flavour. Drinkable but boring. No hops to speak of.
Crystal clear amber ale with a small, creamy, white head.
The aroma is of butterscotch, floral and citrusy hops.
The flavor is well-bittered, nicely balanced and matches the aroma. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel, fizzy carbonation and a short, crisp, clean finish.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange colour with a nice big creamy off-whitish head. Very fruity, sweet and malty aroma. Less fruitiness in the flavout though it is present, good hoppiness, some sweetness, some maltiness. Rather thin APA.
