2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass. BB 9.12. I like the label...understated and elegant.
App.: Deep golden with a small, messy white froth.
Aroma: Grain, cereal, straw, hay, a touch of sweetness, a touch of fruitiness, sort of a mashy/savoury quality, biscuit, a little bit grassy, earthy in an odd way.
Palate: Medium body, reasonably full effervescence.
Flav.: Consistent with the nose, there is this somewhat hard-to-describe malt note that is kinda sweet, kinda fruity, kinda earthy, kinda oddly savoury, with cereal/grain/biscuit but in a deeper, more complex way; I donít love it; some lighter grassy notes, maybe a touch of lemon; dry with fair bitterness and a mashy, cooked cereal, vaguely grassy finish.
Certainly a flavourful Golden/Blonde Ale, I just donít like all of the flavours.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear colden in color with a minimal but stable white head. Quite malty and toasted aroma with notes of caramel, nuts, dried light fruits and some very aromatic floral, citrusy hops. Taste is medium sweey with a nice dry bitter hoppy bite at the end. For a british produced ale this one is surprisingly aggressively hoppy, but the finish is short and a bit too nutty for my palate. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation quite soft.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2012 Very orange coppery pour with thin but bubbly head. Very clear. Grassy herby scent. Wet grass after a rain. Very bitter, immediate, bite in the back of the throat that I do not enjoy. It fades very quickly though which is nice. Besides the bitterness the mouth is flowery, grassy. Clover. Iím again brought back to fresh wet grass and sitting there as a kid and chewing on grass. Not a wholly unpleasant memory. This isnít something I would go out of the way to buy again but Iím not going to complain that I have a full glass to finish.
