2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale golden pour that’s just a touch hazy. Long lasting white foamy head. Very grassy and grainy. A little bit of that earthy smell I found in the Red. Again it has that earthy taste. I’m really thinking it’s the Big Rig hops, which I’ve officially decided I dig. Very different from the Red other than that. This is thinner and easier to drink. Grassy and maybe even a bit corny. There’s a sweet spike in the taste just before the finish I find doesn’t fit. Not bad and easy to drink but not nearly as good as the Red.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Another one of these macro/lagered crossover junk beers. Pours apple juice gold, green hues. with a big head (only selling point). Ontario has come a long way, and this is pretty dumpy. Big nose of bread crust, yeast, cardboard and sweet corn. Flavour has a gritty vegetable backbone, with sweet sweet fizz. I know that they’re trying to build some sort of bohemian pilsener ale....but this is very dated, stale and sad. Aiming quite low. Not offensive, but pointless.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2016 Clear gold pour with a small. Lighter hopping, light sweet biscuit malt, straw, cracker in aroma and taste. Light body, perfect for kicking back during a round of golf (much like Chris Philips is doing now). For a basic golden ale you could do far worse.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear gold with a frothy white head. Aroma of fruity esthers and pale malts. Taste is the same with the balance towards the esthers... Easy drinking beer that would be better with less esthers and more of a malt profile.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Canette. Une liquide dorée avec une mousse blanche. Un nez de grain, dans le mauvais sens du terme. Une bouche aux saveurs sucrées de grains non-fermentés à la manière d’un malt liquor. Ordinaire même avec de la pizza.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Tapaed at The Pilot House in Kingston/Canada. Overall for me a hard to drink beer. Golden clear color. White time-short head. A too sweet aroma of malt and sweet tropical fruits. Same with taste. Some rice and corn detectable, malty, no bitterness. It reminds me of a German helles but it is even more sweet. Not my style of a beer at all.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2015 Very nice floral aroma.Pale colour wit h a frothy head that disappears quickly.
Sweet with bitter overtones and a light body with a creamy texture.
Just the right amount of fizz.
Overall, I think this is a great drinkable beer.
If you plan on drinking a few beers and watching the game, this could be just what you need.

Pours gold...clear small white cap, aromas of swet pale malt over some gold nugget hops - smooth, pleasant delivery and a clean malty finish - this is classic Canadian golden ale before the national breweries Fxxxed it up.
