jercraigs (10089) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 9, 2009
2009-10-09. Dark amber body, small foamy beige head fades. Mild aroma of green leafy hops, touch of caramel malt. Flavour is lightly bitter, mild green leafy hops over smooth but modest sweet caramel malt, light toasty touches to the malt. Average plus palate is lightly carbonated. Decent, pleasantly quaffable but a touch muted overall. I suspect it has a bit more zip closer to the bottling date, but there is no best before on the bottle. Bottle from Premier Gourmet

Tonkun (1296) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 28, 2012
Draft. Amber pour with nice head. Caramel, citrus, nice balanced bitterness, hop. Overall a nice balanced beer but a bit body would make this a great beer.

rederic (3293) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 18, 2012
12oz bottle, dark amber color, with a beige head, nice bready, grainy toasty, caramel malt nose, with some mild floral leafy hop accents in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a fruity, flowery citrus, piney, leafy hop character, with a light caramel, toasted malty backbone, leading towards a lingering fruity, leafy hop bittering finish.

NikkTwist (2899) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2013 Beer engine pull at the Khyber. Cloudy orange brown pour with a big foamy head. Bitter fruity floral hop flavors. Pinecones. Passionfruit. Grapefruit pith. Wildflowers. Toasted wheat bread. Medium-light malt. Watery body, but that could just be the cask talking. Decent dry session beer. Update: Having again on regular draft. Body is a fuller. Both the light caramel malt and dry hops feel stronger. Rounded peppery bite at the end.

BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle from trade. Thanks! Been anting to try this one for a while. Pours a deep amber bronze with a nice slightly orange white head. Aroma is sweet fruity malt and hints of grapefruit hops. Light-medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavor is mostly fruity malts with an ever so slight hop zest. Not bad but also not super exciting. Excellent BBQ beer and I suspect it would go nicely with some pulled pork.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
On tap at the brewery, served in a tasting glass. Pours clear copper with a small tan head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has notes of caramel and toffee, along with delicate lemon and citrus, grass and a touch of pine. The flavour is moderately bitter throughout with mostly pine notes but some grass; this is paired with caramel malty and grainy notes for balance. The finish is long and hoppy with a moderate delicate bitterness. On the palate it is medium in body with a smooth, watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, a decent amber ale but the hops could be more complex. 2014-04-27
