3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
341 ml bottle in the OCB Discovery Pack 4 from the LCBO, served cold in a Scotch Irish taster glass.
App.: Clear deep golden with a fair white head.
Aroma: Fruity biscuit malts, some grain and cereal, thatís pretty much it.
Palate: Medium body and carbonation.
Flav.: Fruity biscuit malts with some decent caramel, a touch of woodsy, earthy hops, tastes British; dry with very limited bitterness and a clean, malty/mineral finish.
Nothing terribly exciting, but well-made.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gold look white head. Smells lightly sweet of apple, yeast. Taste charges full on with apple and pear, some absolutely fresh delicious grassy-lemon hops, and a bit of a pleasantly earthy-mineral ESB-type character that make it all a bit British. Good body to it, I could certainly session this one any day if drank fresh.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma of light grains and sweet malt with very slight hops. Aroma is quite hoppy for the style. Some more sweet grains with a medium bitter finish. Drinkable, not great but not awful either.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Iíve been eying this 9pack of beer at the beer store for a year now and I finally decided to take a leap of faith and buy it. Glad I did. One sip of this beer and it has become my session beer of choice, creamy, flavorful, quenching and smooth. Top Notch. Pours a light gold colour with a thin white head. The aroma is fruity, biscuity and floral. The flavour is a good reflection of this, with a strong fruity baseline, some sort of berry I think, with some malty biscuity sweetness and a light dry hoppiness in the background. Creamy smooth mouth feel. Thirst quenching, high drinkability. Very satisfying in every aspect.
