3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Paddyís, Ottawa, August 18. Pours a clear bubbly golden-orange with an average size creamy white head. Aroma of light resiny, oily hops, mild for the style, along with bready malt -- mild but nice. Flavour of resiny hops and bready malt, simple but pleasant. Medium bodied. Pretty good, itís no "hopstravagansa" but itís a decent beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pint at Quinnís. 16AU12. Clear deep golden with a thin white head. Fruity, nice biscuit malts, toasty, some earthy, floral hops, a little resinous, not bad but not hop crazy. Medium body and effervescence. Decently fruity, some caramel, reasonable fruity, floral hops, decent fruity maltiness, bordering on cloying sweetness; off-dry with reasonable bitterness. Doesnít live up to the name.

Pours amber-orange with a nice white head and lots of lacing. Not much coming from the nose. In the mouth Iím getting solid malth with a nice almost grapfruit balance with a medium bitter finish.
Nice enough, but pretty simple brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed at Quinnís Ale house. Pours a clean golden colour with a little amber hue. The head is white and some soapy lacing is left. Mild fresh hop scent with caramel and grain notes. The mouthfeel is lightly dry in the finish. Again, mild bitterness from the hop in the taste, with caramel malt in the background. Decent, not over-hoppy, brew.
