On tap at the Barrel House. Pours a clear copper color, almost yellow, a medium white head. A fruity honey nose with some earthiness. The flavor is lemons, a Pils malt like earthy malt profile, a medium bitter bite, very earthy/grainy. Finishes earthy and some bitterness. Pretty good.

mcberko (7052) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 11, 2013
On tap at Cascade, pours a clear blonde with a large white head. Aroma is almost nonexistent, with some dry hopping in the background. Flavour is fairy bland but more exciting than the nose, with notes of light piney hops and dry bready malts. Not much to this, but it’s dry and highly drinkable. Good stuff.

gramity (1440) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 26, 2013
Pours a golden-orange with a fizzy white head that lingers for sometime before creating a nice layer atop the glass. The aroma is bitter, sticky earthy hops accompanied by some soft malt. The flavor is very malt forward with some hops to follow with a lasting bitterness that ends dry. Its light-medium bodied with a nice carbonation. Its nice light, not overly bitter, palatable but does end up seeming a little hot.

On draught at raccoon lodge - pours cloudy copper color, thick white head. Nose of citrus and hops. Mango taste is definitely present which helps to balance the hops. Really nice summer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
