2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Very appetizing beer in the glass and appropriately named ’Sunburst’ because of the strong golden appearance. However, although it was smooth and drinkable, I found it a little thin of flavor. The finish was completely unremarkable. A very ho-hum beer. Next.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Begins with a nice garden hop bouquet mellowed by slight fruit tones and finishes with a slight bitter tone. Overall, its pretty well balanced with the mix of hops stealing the show. I love those cascades.

500ml bottle @ Cardinal. Hazy golden body with a medium off-white head. Aroma is strong fruity, hops, citrus, and grain. Flavor is very refreshing, fruity, citrus, malt and grapefruit. Medium light body and well balanced in a light way. Perfect beer for a warm summer day.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours to a clean golden body with a really tall and ultra creamy, milky, rocky pure starch white head and awesome lacing. The aroma is pineapple and candied fruit hop medley. The flavor is candied fruit with pineapple and papaya and flowers. Some strange malt base or hop additions in this one. Perhaps a bit of butterscotch. The palate is creamy and bitter.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange golden colour and a slight haze. No yeast in the bottle though. Thick creamy white head that clings to the glass. Crisp hop aroma. Notes of flowers, but very mellow. Caramel and soft maltiness. Light crisp hop flavours with a little bitterness. Medium-bodied. Rich maltiness balanced by the hops in a very nice way that makes the beer very drinkable. Very refreshing.
