Subtle hop notes balanced by a light body and hints of honey make this a refreshingly crisp light blonde ale; an easy drinking favourite.

Flavours are sweet, citrus tartiness. Well balanced hops and malts. A bit grassy. Stronger orange taste. Mouthfeel is creamy and malty. More hoppy in the finish. Easy drinking any time kinda brew.

A clear, filtered, gold pour. Aromas of cereals, grains and cat pee. Strong cereal swallow. I’m not a big fan of this beer. Clocktower makes far superior brews. Shame they chose to release this particular one at the Beer Store.

473 ml can from TBS, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear golden with a fairly generous white head. Aroma: Grainy malt and cereal, a bit of haw/straw, light diacetyl, light grassy hops. Palate: Medium body and carbonation. Flav.: The malt becomes more biscuit-like, more diacetyl with a bit of fruitiness, low grassy hops; dry with gentle bitterness and a fairly clean, lightly malty finish.

Meh, drinkable.

Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow with a small sticky white head and a bit of lace. Aroma is sweet pale malts, fruity esters and light corn. Flavour is fruity esters, mild grassy hops, sweet pale malts, light citrus, and light honey notes.

Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a clear yellowish gold with a huge frothy white head. Aroma of sweet pale malts, corn, light honey, fruity esthers and a faint hop aroma. Taste is sweet malts, honey, lemon tartness, noble hop bitterness and fruity esthers. Bit too fruity and the tartness is a bit off with a touch of harshness in the finish... Otherwise a good clean lager like finish.

It would be a disservice if a kitsch weren’t boring. That’s the point, right? Pours golden with good head and lacing. Some barley here as well. Finishes with nice crispness. Some very light sugared malt as well. Watery consistency. Tap at brewpub.

On tap @ Clocktower Pub Ottawa. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aromas were a nice blend of honey and biscuit. Tastes were very reflective of aroma but with some grain as well. Best descriptor would be like eating a graham cracker but without the sweetness. Light bodied and crisp with a short finish. I really enjoyed this beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 14, 2013
Dégustée en fût sur place à l’établissement sur Bank. De couleur dorée et claire. Nez de grains de malt doux et avec de subtiles notes de miel, de fruits (agrumes) et de houblon floral. Moyenne-mince ronde en bouche et moyennement pétillante en bouche avec une texture huileuse et légèrement aqueuse. Goût de grains de malt pâle sucrés avec quelques traces fruitées (agrumes) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un très léger goût de miel et de caramel doux (notes de beurre) et en finale l’on retrouve des notes amères de de houblon floral aux traces herbeuses. Post-goût court-moyen, très légèrement amer de houblon floral. (hiver 2005-06)

On tap at the Bank St. brewpub. I actually thought this was a decent kolsch. Balanced, light body, and crisp. Mild honey sweetness.
