3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Burger Bar and in cans from LCBO. Dark yellow, small white foamy head. Fruity hop and malt aroma. Taste is very good - generously fruity hopped over a medium body that seems well carbonated with a long bitter longer. A perfect session beer. Certainly better fresh on tap vs. in the can, yet the can does retain that flavourful bitter "session"ability in the beer that I enjoy. A solid ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from the LCBO. Hazy amber with a tight off white head that leaves lots of lace. Nose is roasted malts and grain with a hint of vanilla and caramel and only the faintest bit of grass. Lightly sweet with caramel followed by a mild bitterness. Medium palate with average carbonation. Nothing exciting. The Xtra hoppy version might have some more character.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear brew with decent head, well carbonated, and darker yellow colour. Muted brew with a slightly floral hoppy note, some malts and caramel. Fast tasting brew with light mid palate and a slightly hoppy finish. Meh, boring beer but not the worst.
