3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a cloudy, murky amber, with a soft billowing white head, leaving behind considerable lacing.
Aromas are muted, with only light citrus discernable.
Palate is fairly dry.
Tastes are of citrus, tangerine, and light vanilla. Finishes with some hop bitterness.
Overall, a very understated beer, but it does wield a deft hand in delivering an enjoyable beer.

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.
