Bottle. 341ml. Pours very clear, pale gold. "Almost" water-like. Not much head. Aroma is of flowers. Tastes flowers, hops. Crisp finish. Very drinkable and refreshing. "Clear" lack of complexity. Gives the impression of a cold chamomilla herbal tea. I do lie the flowers, but that’s really all that beer’s got.

Bottle [341ml] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a slightly cloudy very pale gold with an average size lasting frothy white head. Odd aroma of lemon, ginger, sugar, grain and floral notes. Watery flavour of herbs, ginger, honey, floral notes and lemon. Light bodied. Not bad but nothing special.

HogTownHarry (6042) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2012
341ml bottle shared with blankboy and garthicus. Very pale clear gold with a small and diminishing white fizzy/rocky head. Aroma of Chablis, dried flowers, a hint of cinnamon and maybe a bit of bug spray. Taste - floral, grassy light golden ale with a dash of pear - clean but sort of dull. Light body, strong carbonation, quick finish with a decent if slightly gritty fresh grassy finish. Meh.

This was ok. The herbal character is very mild, accompanied with a slightly grassy malt caracter. It was very lightly carbonated, which I did not mind but others might.

Tricker (271) - Quebec, CANADA - SEP 5, 2011
Bière blonde de 5.8 % d’alcool. Beau col au versement, odeur prononcée d’épices, coriandre ou marjolaine. Elle possède un goût prenant d’épices, mais ne possède cependant aucune amertume liée aux agrumes. Elle possède un beau goût et elle est rafraîchissante.
