Aurelius (3914) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2004
An odd, grassy, starchy, orange gelatin aroma. Bad label, clear light orange/tan beer with thin head. Well-brewed hops up front, going to an orangey, dry malt flavor. Moderately sweet, tangy. Hopppy finish builds. Medium body and fairly acidic.

swingline (2) - Whitby, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2004 does not count
Good amber colour with not alot of head. Good aroma which is a hint of the citrus hops in the taste. Flavour is slightly hoppy with a very low key bitter finish. Nothing outstanding about this beer but not a bad beer at all

JoeMcPhee (8216) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2004
LIght amber colour with a cloudy off-white head. Rich caramel malt aroma, some spice and citrus hops. Flavour is similar, well balanced and with a nicely bitter finish. Simple but good.

wnp22 (685) - Toronto (Roncesvalles Village), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2004
Tasted in toronto at St. Lawrence Market Craft beer show. Tasted in cheeesy STLMCBS glass. Colour is amber/golden colour with little or no head. Clear colour with slight carbonation present. Not much special going on here. Oh well....

jercraigs (7348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2004
Amber body with a decent sized white head. Flavour is surprisingly hoppy, not a lot but more than I anticipated from this one. Well balanced hops and malt with some fruity notes. Quite nice.

GregClow (2819) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2004
Clear & vibrant golden colour. Aroma is hoppy and slightly smoky. Flavour is really well balanced, with a nice hop profile in the finish. Nothing unique, simply a very well done session ale.

Sammy (8096) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2004
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2004 Very light drinkable British style ale. Very litle foam and nice dark yellow. A bit of a bite with a bit of bitter aftertaste.. But quite pleasant. Best on cask at Smokelss Joes, a 3.5 over the bottled 3 as more hop.

Gorbalev (2895) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2004
On tap (cask), Blue Meaney, Toronto. Nice copper colour, with small head. Expected hoppy aroma for the style, but not overpowering. Taste is a good balance of malts and hops, with a slight bitter finish, although again, not overpowering. A good, drinkable, enjoyable pint.

Brian (145) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2004
Coppery color with a mild but adequate head. Nice bit of hops in the aroma. Very smooth and lingers well on the palate.

MartinT (7523) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2003
Deliciously enticing smoked toffee apples bathing in butter pools...The lusciously thick aroma is betrayed though by the thinner-than-announced mouthfeel...The tranquilizing citrusy hops mingle with caramel and peach syrup to create great sweet/bitter, assertive/subtle equilibriums...I think I'll go smell the bottle a bit...Hurray for CapFlu!...
