Light reddish golden colour. Good head. Aroma is a fresh, malty, cleans the nostrils like peppermint would.... very light floral hops. Flavour is lightly malty nice bitters. Mildly balanced slightly dry finish. Sammy (12623) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 27, 2008
A mild bitter freshly brought in from the UK. A light grapefruit colour with a bit of soapy head, all that remains from initial malt foaminess. A moderate malty aroma. Its like an amber, well balanced with a bit of toastiness and hop bitterness. Smooth drinking. Average mouthfeel.

Slight foggy clear red pour, red color, min head. Good aroma fruit and tangy. taste long notes of caramel and fruit w/ pleasantly dry hop bite. Worthy of a good session. blankboy (7788) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2008
<i>Bottle (500ml).</> Pours a hazy deep reddish-brown with a small diminishing off-white head. Mild and subtle aroma of caramel malt, slightly sweet, with a bit of fruit and just a hint of hops and spices. Flavour’s malty and pretty tasty, there’s some light hops there and a decent bitter finish. A simple but pretty good Red Ale and something I’d gladly drink again. wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - NOV 20, 2008
Pours a dark amber, with little head. The aroma is hoppy citrus and pine with malty biscuity notes. Flavour is hoppy, citrusy, with good malty toffee goodness to balance it all out. A fantastic brew.

1/2 liter oval bottle.
Fairly fresh. Pours a hazed copper-red ale in the glass with a decent 2 finger tight cap that laces up the glass well.
Aroma is very pleasant..fruity ( cherry or grape skins) with some hay and slight whisp of sweet grains. Moderate body, silken mouth feel, pronounced malt spine with a fruity-resinous character. Up front the malt is there in spades...it’s a rich toasty amber malt with a slight caramel character, then the the tart fruitiness (berry and citrus) rush the palate joined shortly by a piercing resinous hopping that builds to the lightly bitter finish.
What a great ale..well made, quenching, flavorful, approachable and satisfying world class red bitter. I wish I could get this all the time. JesseM (1158) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2008
500mL bottle from my St Peter’s LCBO gift pack. This is shamefully mis-classified as a bitter. Hard to define, but Amber Ale would probably suit it best. This beer was nothing short of stunning. Beautiful ruby red hazy colour with a small biege head. Aroma is faint, but enticing. Chrystal and toffee malts with ample British hops. Flavour is awesome. Absolutely delicious malty core complimented by load of hoppy bite. Decently complex. Full bodied and satisfying, this has to be one of the single most under-rated beers I’ve ever had. barncatmatt (2287) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2008
500 ml bottle from an LCBO gift pack. Im completely blown away by this one. pours sexy red with a lingering tan head and sexy lacings. aromas are malt forward with great hops in the background. the flavour is rich and full. very subtly complex. malt forward but great useage of hops. great full bodied session beer. the best bitter ive ever had by far.

500ml bottle from the LCBO as part of a gift pack with a St Peters pint glass
The aroma is very rich bitter sweet smell
Pours a nice dark cloudy reddish colour with very little head
Tastes quite good a little sweet and a little bitter and a touch on the watery side
But another fine beer from St Peters

This was good. Lots of hops there and extremely dry and bitter, though was a tad flat. The colour certainly is ruby.
