Oakes (12514) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 4, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2005 Golden-amber colour. Aroma is light, fruity (guanabana), faintly malty. Malt is much more assertive in the flavour - a slightly sticky, chewy caramelized pale malt like the beer had a four hour boil. Slight alcohol note in the sweet, chewy finish.

Sammy (8627) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2011
Decent and interesting and bang on the style. Some funk in aroma, wheaty, yeasty. The taste is sassy blonde. Above average mouthfeel. Bottle gifted from the brewmaster and from the owner in Tampa meetup.Told this bottle ages for eight years or more, but it was hot out and the bottle cold. Drinkability was OK.
