Great amber-brown with a medium beige head that slowly dissipates into a thin ring. Aromas of malt, nut, dried fruit, hop and toffee. Absolutely wonderful sweet and bitter blend with a smooth palate. One of my favorites Lagerboy (2239) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2011
Clear redddish brown with mimimal head. Piney hop aroma and taste, backed by light roasty malts with a touch of caramel and some earth.
Light bodied, soft carbs, with a slightly bitter finish. Enjoyable. PorterPounder (8359) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 15, 2016

Can on Rocky Mountaineer Train, Canada. Vibrant bronze coloured beer with a light head. The aroma is lightly malty and roasted, and the flavour is gently malty and roasted with some caramelness. Overall a pleasant mildly roasted and malty beer.

Pint at Boston Pizza in Whistler. Pours a clear brownish amber, with a tannish head. Aroma is sweet and malty, taste is slightly sweet and smooth. Overall a good brew. solidfunk (9729) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Decently balanced actually. Has some hoppy pale ale feel with some oak. Pours red with some lacing. Finishes of bitter alcohol. Texture a little watery. Pint at the Metropole. DeanF (2647) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2011
"A perfectly balanced brew"? Well, that’s a challenge if I ever did heard one. It pours with a very nice foamy head and a decent dark-copper body, so it certainly looks good. The aroma is reminiscent of a darker Belgian lager - fine, good, but not great. The flavour is darker malts and a hint of sugar, boosted by carbonation and a bit of alcohol to a moderately wet finish. It’s all right, certainly, and worth seeking out if you’re nearby, but does not rise very far above its competition (increasing everyday in B.C.’s crowded microbrew world).
