473 ml can.

A- Coppery red with amber highlights. Big pale beige head. Streams of little bubbles rising in the beer. Bubbles from the head cling to the glass.

S- Sweet caramel malt. Musty note reduces my enjoyment of the odour.

T- Well hopped for the style. Malty caramel notes. Good and well balanced overall, but nothing to get excited about.

MF- Good mouthfeel. Medium bodied, smooth. Greatly adds to drinkability.

D- Goes down quite nicely. A very approachable beer but not bland.

Poured on tap in Montreal into a nonic pint glass.

Real nice copper red body on this, with large sticky lacing of white head, retaining a good amount. Lots of rising carbonation and seems fairly clear, nice looking brew.

Good nose of toasted grain, faint sticky toffee and sticky malt. Slightly fruity also. Real solid.

Taste is malt rich, with a nice dark toffee hiding in the aftertaste. A fruity somewhat finish, but mixes nicely with an almost bock and sticky malt sense.

Overall pretty solid brew, worth having again easily.

Tall boy into glass.

A- Copper pour with a finger width off white head. Lacing is decent.

S- Brown sugar, slight caramel and toffee. There is a bit of chocolate and char.

T- Brown sugar, caramel and coffee with a touch of chocolate.

M- Light bodied, prickly carbonation.

O- Quite good, didn't know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised.

I was unpacking some boxes and stumbled across a bunch of cans for my collection, and the corresponding reviews that I seem to have forgotten to enter.

Thanks Zorprime for the trade, we should do it again. Another can for the shelf.

Pours a light copper-orange color with an off-white head. Foam is creamy, with good retention and leaves thick, chunky lacing. The aroma has lots of fresh hops at first, as it warms the caramel malt sweetness comes out. The light hop bitterness accents the flavor. Grainy malt and caramel sweetness balance, then finishes with a clean hop aftertaste. Flavorful, earthy hops, solid malt character, medium body and mouthfeel. All around very good.

Had this one a few times but just realized I had never reviewed it.

A- Clear chestnut. Big, very light-beige foam on top. Plenty of speckled lacing.

S- Dark honey. Chamomile. Smells good but not exactly appetizing.

T- Not as much honey or chamomile as the smell. A bit of a woody finish. Hops are a little green.

M- Big mouthfeel thanks to a medium body and high carbonation. Feels right.

O- An okay easy drinking beer. Nothing to actively seek out though. Fits in fine the mixed

Kind of reminds me of a cleaner, less honey tasting, Boréale Rousse. I like this series of beers. Not incredible tasting but reasonably priced (not cheap though), craft and canned. Keep it up Archibald.

Can: Poured a clear medium amber color ale with a medium foamy head with OK retention and no lacing. Aroma of caramel malty with light sweet notes also noticeable. Taste is a mix between some clean cereal with light sweet notes and some semi-dry caramel malt notes. Body is average with good carbonation. OK overall though nothing really special.

Very drinkable beer.

Pour with a nice head that is very cloudy. Smell a little bit of hops, but not like the taste.

Color is amber and the beer is clear.

Very nice taste of malt. The taste is balance. A bitter finish just enough to make you want to have another sip right away.

Love it! Wish they had it in bottle!!
