I tried this beer on May 9, 2008 after purchasing from the Queen’s Quay LCBO outlet. The beer poured a beautiful translucent rusty red colour with some effervescence leading to a short-lived whitish head. The aroma was sweet malt, some fruit tones (I’m thinking plums), and a little hoppiness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, amply carbonated, and a little sour on the tongue. The flavour is no where near as fruity as the aroma. There is some sweet maltiness, some sourness in the middle, and slightly bitter finish. This beer suited my tastes quite well.
Such a wonderful refreshing beer. Pours a copper red with a large white head. Nutty aroma, with a strong caramel malty nose as well. Low spicy hop aroma as well. Tastes of caramel malt and a little spicy hop flavor as well. Balanced toward malty. Wonderful beer. Gedge (7) - Toronto, CANADA - JUN 20, 2007 does not count
Much better than I expected. Nice amber colour, lightly carbonated. Bit malty as others have a noted and a surprisingly flavourful with a nice bitter finish. Just bought the one can as I thought it wasn’t go to impress, but I’d drink this again. sinkhole (263) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2007
Surprisingly good. Poured copper red with good head. Aromas of carmel and malted hops. Initial taste is a bit yeasty but gives way to a slight fruit (apple?) and bitter hop finish. I will keep an eye out for this in the future.

Murky red color. NIce finger of head, good lacing on my glass. Aroma is sweet, kinda like cake icing, but i can detect some hops in there, along with some ripe fruit. Flavour is clean, and slightly malty, with a touch of hops, and the sweetness from the aroma is there in the finish. Mouthfell is slightly thick, i guess you could say creamy. Wow, i must admit i wasn;t expecting much, but this is a very nice offering. Whatup14 (1975) - Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2015
En fût au Syndicate. Couleur ambrée translucide, mousse beige laissant une dentelle éparse. Arôme de malt grillé, herbal, caramel. Goût de malt légèrement grillé, houblon herbal. Carbonatation moyenne, corps moyen. pootzboy (1715) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2009 An interesting twist on the cream ale style....red carmel malts add some dimension to the fruity tastes left by the yeast. Pour puts a clouded amber-red ale in the glass with a smallish sticky off white cap that reduced to a surface clinging lace...aromas of caramel, spice, fruits...very subdued. Medium-light bodied with a creamy mouth feel. Sweet up front like toast and toffee but there are enough hops to yeast by products to offer a nice fruity undertone...the finish is the best best part of this ale... the hops and roasted malt "char" gang up to turn the caramel sweetness into a kind of licorice-toffee taste with a light fruity side note.....very different but in a nice way. Some may say this is too sweet for an ale but I think that the sweetness is well enough in check to keep the drink from becoming cloying even though the balance is a bit malt weighted. herrbrown1974 (427) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2011
On tap at the Irish Harp Pub in Niagara on the Lake (as their house ale). Pours a brick red. Aroma of molasses and cinnamon, hint of sour apple. Malty, caramel flavours. Creamy body, slightly sour finish.

Draught, 5% @ Syndicate, Niagara Falls. Pours hazy reddish amber with small off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, with bready touches and notes of hops and yeast. Sweetish, malty and bready flavour with bitterish, hoppy notes and acetic touches. Bitterish and estery aftertaste. Well, not that bad, but a less bready version would be better. 090715.
