3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Queenís Quay LCBO Outlet (Toronto, Ontario, Canada)

The beer pours a translucent red-tinged golden colour with a half inch white cap that lingers. The aroma is cereal malt, weak caramel, weak floral hops, and a mustiness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with average carbonation. The flavour is caramel, yeast, and grains. Unremarkable, yet not bad at all.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Impossible that this ale has such a low rating on this site...
Golden effervescent body with short lived head. Scent of fresh baked bread, spring fruits and malts but canít really discern any hops. Itís in the mouth that the hops are noticeable and they are good (they balance the sweetness of the malts perfectly)! Flavours also include sweet apple / pear and peppery notes. Very enjoyable in mouth.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can: Poured a clear bright golden color ale with a nice large white foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of grainy cereal notes is not the most pleasant. Taste is also dominated by grainy unrefined notes with light cereal notes. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. Malt bill is definitely not clean enough in my opinion.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from the LCBO. Light, clear golden-orange with a finger of bright white head. Aroma is simple - starts with bready malt with a hint of caramel and toasted cereal, finishes with grassy and very slightly spicy hops, with not much inbetween. Flavour follows - bread, grain, quick hint of peach, enough noble hops to balance and offer a fairly dry finish, but not enough to leave a lasting impression. Itís OK, but with so many great pale ales on the market in Ontario now, I canít see this picking up a lot of traction outside of its home turf.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear gold colour out of a can with a pillowy white head. I dont like the aroma, it is bready right off the top and that is surprising to me. After it opens up it shows light grassy hops and a hint of something citrus and a touch of pepper. Fast palate, the flavours are gone before they even begin and finishes with a bit of a metallic bite. Over carbonated crapola. Not enjoying this one what so ever.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden pour with a thick white head. The nose is soft and balanced. Aroma of lightly spicy/noble hops. A touch of bready malts with the faintest hint of toast as well. Very clean tasting with a balanced finish. A very quaffable pint. Simple but good

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tall can from the LCBO pours well um I guess gold with a creamy white one finger cap. Watery & sugary. Slight metallic essence is as welcome as a politician on the door step. Tries to be so Canadian, from the blandness of the style & the cheesy nationalism of the copy on the can. Not as bad as it could be but lets face it: this beer puts the EH in MEH.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from the LCBO. Clear medium amber with a large white head that fades slowly and leaves a bit of lace. Nose is predominantly grain with a light bit of fruit and just a hint of grassy hops. Light sweet caramel, honey and fruit throughout with very light bitterness. Medium light slick mouth with soft carbonation and a crisp finish. Decent Blonde Ale.
