English Target hops give this beer a remarkable aroma. Late hopping with Goldings and fermentation by the Brakspear yeast creates a remarkable zesty aroma, a full fruity flavour and a golden colour. All Hops and Barley used in this beer are organically grown and produced. Malts: Organic Pale & Crystal Hops: Organic Target and Goldings

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark orange with an average size diminishing frothy white head. Mild but pleasant hoppy aroma along with caramel malt and fruit -- simple but nice. Somewhat watery flavour of light Goldings hops backed by malt and fruit and a mild, short bitter finish. Medium bodied. This could definitely use more flavour, it seems to get less flavourful as you drink it -- still, thereís nothing bad here and I could drink many.

GregClow (3027) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 2, 2007
Bottle from the LCBO. Hazy copper with a wispy head. Pleasant aroma - biscuity malt, a hint of caramel, grass & lemon - surprisingly fresh aroma considering how long it sat in the LCBO warehouse. Nice mouthfeel, very soft. Solid and well-balanced flavour, with the Goldings really coming through nicely in the finish. Tasty stuff.

Lubiere (11586) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2007
A hazy amber ale with a thin white head. In aroma, light hops, biscuit, and yeast. In mouth, a rather nice crisp malt, yeast, and crisp hops. very English. Some lactic notes develop as beer warms up. Medium bodied. A very good offering from the LCBO.

500ml bottle, 4.6% a/v Pours a murky amber colour with a thin tan head. The nose is citrus/hops and some pine. The taste is very clean and citrus/pine. There is a note of hops on the aftertaste but not much, medium mouth feel, very nice beer.

probstblueribbon (3397) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 26, 2007
500 mL bottle from LCBO (finally!), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Murky dirty amber with a small, tight white head. Aroma: A nice noseful of citrus hops and toffee, a bit piney, a bit doughy-yeasty, light fruitiness and spiciness. Palate: Medium-ish body, fairly soft carbonation. Flav.: More piney/resinous hops, caramel, some yeast and dough, a bit of bread crust, touches of lemon; lightly astringent with fair bitterness and a light bread finish.

Nice stuff. Glad it finally got to Ottawa!

Botte, LCBO. Med to dark yellow, medium foamy white head. Mild aroma - slight hops, light malt. Light refreshing taste - zest, yeast, grain, lemon, nice amount of bitterness. Grassy hops. Wish it had come out in the summer as planned, great stuff, still tasting fresh thankfully.

My lovely wife bought me this for my birthday to try because she knew i hadnít had it yet. I donít buy into all the organic bullshit but i really liked this beer! pours a light straw amber colour with little to no head but that may be because i was being careful of the sediment. Pleasant light hop and malt aroma but has a very clean buttery malt flavour (maybe a slight elderflower flavour to it) that is well balanced by the hops, excellent session beer!

MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 22, 2007
Bottle- Pours orangey amber with a rocky foam cap. Fresh hoppy and grassy aroma, some citrus fruit rind(orange peel), spices (corriander, cardomon). The flavour profile is awash with leafy fresh hops, zesty orange and spices, some sugar (brown sugar). Nice refreshing bitter finish. Good.

Tessic (983) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2007
This ale poured a cloudy light orange colour with a bright white head. To the nose it had scents of citrus and a stong sharp bitter hopp scent. First taste was nice and smooth with flavours of orange citrus and spice. there is a little smoke flavour to it along with spice. the finish is slightly bitter with fruit juice flavours and the palate isa combination of that and a little bitterness.
