12oz. Can: Aroma of fruit, hops, citrus, grass, light pine, nectarine, tangerine, and slight crystal malt. Poured amber in color with a small, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Clear. Sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of crystal malt, hops, grass, slight citrus, slight grain, light pine, and and hint of tropical fruit. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Crystal malt, grass, grain, and light hop finish is dry.

neuromatt (1139) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2010
12 oz can at Bar Volo, served in a tulip. Pours clear golden with a tall, frothy white head. The head fades slowly to a thin cover. On the nose, aromas of straw, flowers, grass, resin and honey along with a little funk. The flavour is moderately bitter throughout, and this is balanced against a slight sweetness. The finish is average and hoppy. On the palate, it is light-medium in body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a decent pale ale with a nice aroma of resiny, floral hops. The can was an initial turn-off, but it turned out to be a decent beer. 2010-08-21

Can. Pours a golden yellow with a thin but lasting white head. Mild grassy aroma. Tastes of light malts and some grassy hops. Slight citrus notes in the bitterness. Finishes grassy. Not really bitter enough to be an APA, more of an English pale ale. Still good though...

reebtogi (4151) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 27, 2012
355ml can pours a pale golden amber color with a 2 finger white head that settles quite quickly leaving some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is citrus and caramel. Taste is caramel malty sweetness with a surprisingly generous citrus hop bitterness. Light to medium body with adequate carbonation leaving a nice tingle on the tongue. I was quite stunned with the nice balance of flavors in this brew.

omhper (19324) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 19, 2009
Bottled at pre-RBJG festivities in Kyoto. Hazy golden, minimal head. Perfumy apricot aroma. Mid-dry with clean, yet chewy crystal malt-like profile. Inviting, but a little sterile until orangey hops brings it to life. Finishes with medium bitterness.

turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 24, 2009
Can. Clear golden-amber with 2 finger head that quickly disappears. Mild hop aroma. Taste is slightly sweet malt and mild hops. Although not appearing overly carbonated, it gives me almost a burning sensation on the tip of my tongue, which was not expected. Decent otherwise.
