1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sigh, I want to support the local stuff, but this is pretty boring. The best thing about it is the label. Watery, with bready aroma, just another ordinary beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a half finger of head on a hazy dark straw colored body.
The aroma is musty, barnyard like with sour lemon in the background.
The taste is sweet and grainy. There’s a mild lemon bitterness in the background.
The texture is crisper with moderate carbonation.
It’s okay, tends sweet. It’s sweet like a Scotch Ale.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
"Poured into glass, a thin layer of head, creamy. A light amber appearance. The aroma is pretty strong, of wheats and malts. lacing is ok. Flavour is hints of caramel, roasted malts, and something burnt haha. Not too bad, mixed emotions with the aroma (something’s off, can’t quite pinpoint). First time trying this beer, drank directly from bottle. It glass, aromas escape, and doesn’t sit with me well. Might keep drinking from bottle :(

Pours a clear reddish gold color with little head. Smell is toffee and nuts and taste is toffee up front with a very minimal hop finish. Very thin beer, a watered down trad.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear medium orange copper, small foamy off white head vanishes. Muted malty aroma. Thin caramel malt taste, lightly sweet, some vague nuttiness. Softly carbed, light bodied, low hopped. An inoffensive and ordinary ale. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

0.33 l bottle at Whistler. Very boring and uninspiring Ale taste... One is enough...

Du malt, caramel, et pain. Le goût est faible, mais assez complexe quand même. Une de mes bières préféré de Big Rock.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
caramel, bread, toast, grass, leaves, orange, clear, white foam, light sweetness, medium bitterness, lightly sour, light body, thin feel, average carbonation, astringent
Copper pour with minimal head. Light aroma of grass/toast. Medium bitterness and some caramel/toffee sweetness present. Overly thin though, but on the refreshing side. Astringency is light and pleasant. I agree with others posting here that this presents a more watered down version of their Traditional Ale (which I quite enjoy on tap).
