2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
341ml bottle labelled "Pale Ale" thanks to my friend Bruno.
Appearance : Clear mahogany with small head that goes away fast.
Aroma : Some malt, some grain. Light honey with a little bit of hops.
Taste : Malt and slight honey. Some grain with some hops on the finish. Finish is slightly bitter and quite dry. Slightly astringent. Notes of soap on the finish.
Overall : Nose is weak and not very inviting. Taste is also quite weak but not that bad. Finish has a light unwanted astringency that limit the drinkability. Not good at all.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
341ml bottle from The Beer Store. A yellow fizzy beer. This is an ale? Dissapointing.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
it’s okay, not an india pale ale by any stretchh. Clean and refreshing with enough hops for flavour, but not enough fr the style.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle: golden pour, smallish white cap with modest retention,weak lacing. Aroma is weal as well for a micro pale. some light fruit and cerial tones and some other funky cardboard notes. Thin mouthfeel, fiszzy, light malt up front and some minor hop presense, taste pretty much as it smess. Fast clean finish.
I drank oceans of this in Calgary whe the Rock was the only micro in town...revisiting this beer documents their downfall into macro brewer wimpishness.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer as far as IPA’s go was a pretty big let down. Porus a deep golden colour with a short lived head. Aroma of dehydrated hops, cardboard malts, and crushed apples. The flavour is an exact reflection of that. It’s sort of interesting, a kind of refreshing, but really nothing special...at all, there traditional ale is considerably better.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 1/20
Golden pour quckly dispating head. Aroma of cheap macro malts and a hint of cheap hops might even be extract. Flavor is slightly corny and there is a sweet caramel flavor associated with the malt and the hop completely disapear. This is a boring runof the mill macro ale.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2009 Bottle. 5%. Hazy golden pour with a pretty thick white foam. Aroma was unpleasant, strong hops and old hay. Taste first reminded me of wet dog. Finish was quite bitter. Extremely disappointed, this is watery and disgusting. If someone finds this on tap in Edmonton, I would kindly re-rate.
Re-Rate. Much better, but only so much. No canine taste, just a plain tasting, grainy macro ale. Was impressed by the aroma this time around, sweet apples and quite hoppy.
