COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Fresh, crisp and inviting, this golden ale is a favorite with crab, prawns and salads. The floral aroma of hops is derived from dry hopping during the fermentation process.

bhensonb (10904) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 17, 2006
Aroma of citrusy hop, perhaps a hint of pine. Tarnished brass color with a substantial head that sticks. Even a bit a lacing. Starts with a soft citrus character, decent mouthfeel, might be a hint of sweetness in the middle, but all ends well with a light persisting bitterness.

brokensail (10735) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 23, 2010
A: The pour is a slightly chill hazed golden color with a thin layer of white foam that sticks around and leaves a bit of lacing on the glass. S: There isnít much of a nose on this beer. Some citrus and grassy hops and perhaps a bit of malt. T: A pleasant citrus hop flavor without any real bitterness. The malt is present, but not overly sweet. There is a slight earthiness to the finish. M: The body is medium but perhaps a bit on the thin side. The carbonation level is moderate. It has a nice crispness to it, especially when cold. D: Nothing particularly outstanding about this beer, but itís a good session pale ale. Low alcohol content and a crisp finish would be nice on a warm day.

Lubiere (9866) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2003
Golden colour with some haze, starts with a nice citrussy nose but with a little bit of cardboard. Again, in the mouth, there is a plaeasnt hops and citrus dancing together, but there seems to be some oxidation. Still a rather pleasant beer

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 25, 2004
Pale golden colour and a medium-sized white head. Citrusy and yeasty aromas. Very little obvious hop aroma, but the flavour was still well-balanced. Piney hops and a crisp finish. A good pale ale.
