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

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

On tap at the Byward Market in May ’09. Good sweetness, light bread, not much else for aroma. Light gold, clear, meh. Very thick for a kolsch, very thick and rich but I don’t care. Bready sweetness, warm apple pie (very mild one). Nice light carbonation, almost medium bodied, sweet malt finish. Not sure at what point I was fairly toasted...

Pint at the brewpub. Golden yellow color. Nice taste, not too light. Crisp, refreshing on a hot summer day. Good product.

Originally rated January 2006. Poured a golden colour with slight amber in it. The head was white and did not have much retention, nor lacing. Good fruity nose, specially light fruit, with undertones of grapefruit. Nice smooth taste with a grainy finish and some bitterness. Also, mild fruitness was found in the aftertaste, with some grapefruit and grain malts. Kind of creamy mouthfeel. Great session brew that was refreshing with a nice pleasant taste.

Pours a hazy gold with a small white ring. Aroma is soft straw grains. Taste is bready grain. After coming back from Germany this is lacking

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

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.

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.

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2015 En fût au Clocktower. Couleur jaune paille claire, mousse blanche. Arôme de céréale et houblon. Mince en bouche, avec notes de c.r.ales et un peu de houblon en finale. Bonne.
