[Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm] Clear amber, average head. Dusty aroma of citrus and melon. Light ly appley with sharp unpleasantly metallic mouthfeel. No malt flavour, too little hops and a fizzy quick finish. What went wrong here?

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 16, 2001
Bronze, good head; even aroma and palate, balancing earthy, toffeeish malts and floral hops. Though it seems modelled after English style pales, the use of American hops gives it a vibrancy that really adds to the balance and drinkability of the beer. Not a landmark product but nicedly done.

bhensonb (10699) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 20, 2011
Bottle from Half Time. Pours amber with a transient foamy off-white head. Light slightly roast caramel aroma. Near med body. Flavor is mostly light roast caramel, but it is astringent. Not all that bitter though. Just a light touch of fruity hop. Course astringent and bitter confuse me a little. Definitely dry finish. Other than the mouth shrinking there’s not a lot to write home about. Drinks well tho.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2007
Bottle... Clear amber ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Good retention. Floral, fruity aroma with a pleasant afterthought of diacetyl. Balanced nicely, but thin. Reserved acidity sparks some interest and then disappears, leaving just a whimper of buttery diacetyl and my palate unfulfilled. Light-bodied with Champagne-like spritz. Short, tannic, bone-dry finish. A big THANKS to growler for splitting the bottle!

12oz bottle. Poured a medium and clear orange color with a small sized white head. Aromas of caramel and citrus. Tastes of the same. Lively and fizzy body.

Sammy (8358) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2004
Ringwood yeast and mild hops and light copper colour. Small head. Early session ale. Dry, fair. #9 on-tap at Clark’s Ale House in Syracuse. Smooth for a nothing special lager.
