2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
10th August 2013
ChrisO’s Pre GBBF ’Are You Scottish?’ tasting. Almost clear gold beer. Little white head. Smooth dry palate. Light pale malt, a little raw. Touch of dried fruits. Dry finish. Lame!

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
355 mL bottle from LCBO served cold in a tulip glass. Clear golden with a so-so white head. Nondescript grains and cereals, biscuit, vaguely fruity, light toast, boring. Medium body, fairly lively effervescence. More of the same maltiness off the nose, uninspiring; dry with limited bitterness and a bland, cereal finish. Weak, Brooklyn.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 ml bottle, rated from backlog. Hazy golden color with white head. Aroma of malt, kind of dusty or basementy. Taste is kind of dull with the same basement notes.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale gold beer out of the bottle with a short white head. Light grainy nose with some lemon notes. Thus is an easy drinking summer refresher. Lightly toasted white bread, some lemon and water. Finish is almost like a dry lemon cookie.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled both bottle and tap, approximately 1,000 miles from Brooklyn (and even farther from Utica!). Good golden color, slightly cloudy. Only fair head and head retention. Nice refreshing and slightly wheatie taste (although the label claims 100% barley malt). Not the best summer brew I've had this year, but quite enjoyable all the same.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz can. Rating #603. Clear gold pour with a white head. Clean malty grains, light bread and a little pine, very nice. Light bitterness, more pine and a little grass with a mild and clean aftertaste, really good. (2878)

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden with a slushy finger cap. This has that aroma that scares me. Reminds me of bad lagers & ales from my Canadain youth. But dip into this & you’ll see its a pretty enjoyable if not overly inspired ale. Great while playing Xbox after smoked ribs BBQ.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden color. Slight malty aroma. Solid bread and grain malt flavors. Subtle hop backing. Has all of the positive qualities of a summer beer without the annoying spice overload that many breweries feel the need to add. Great for warm weather.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had it straight from the can the aroma is slightly hoppy mostly citrus. Taste very much light with a bit of hops to start and it gets a bit sweet on the finish, very nice beer to have while working good flavor

12oz bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma of floral and grapefruit notes, with some sweet malts. Taste of orange citrus, floral hops, bubblegum, sweet cracker malt, and a little bit of grapefruit.
