Decent Ale for a canadian mainstream microbrewery. Good refreshment though, but the flavour and the nose not impressive at all. If you have friends who drink beer once in a while, this one is a good compromise.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
341 mL Bottle. Gold body with a foamy white head that settles to a ring with some clinging and lacing. Aroma of cereals, grains, hops, earth, soda cracker, a floral note, and a faint basement smell. Bread-crust flavor, earthy crisp biscuit aftertaste (hops), and light sweet malt lingers along with an accent of honey in the finish. Simple but good. Session beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
341ml bottle poured into a pint glass. Poured a clear golden orange colour with a creamy 1.5" head. Head quickly dissipated to a thin white cap. Pretty good lacing is left on the glass. Malt sweetness and light fruity & herbal aromas. Sweet malts which is followed by a grain/cereal flavour. There’s a honey flavour throughout but it’s not too prominent. Not much hops. Not much aftertaste either, just some sweetness covering the inside of my mouth. Good carbonation. This one is creamy, tangy and crisp. Easy to drink for sure. I’ve sessioned on these at the pub a few times. Better then a macro for a similar price. A good choice for someone who doesn’t like a bitter or hoppy beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled, thanks hanniku and Timo A! Copper color. Sweet fruity aroma with hint of butter and sewer. Sweet flavor with plenty of fruity esters, hint of nuts, low bitterness and hint of honey. There are some unleasant fermentation aromas and flavors (overpowering fruitiness).
