pootzboy (1594) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2004 Bottled: Pour reveals a golden hued ale with an almost non existant head that goes to a sticky ring....very moderate carbonation( which is welcome in milder subtle beers). Aromas some grassy hops over sweet fruity notes. Starts mellow and smooth where the draft like mouthfeel has the balance weighted to spicy hops then a long finish where the wet citrus gives way to an increasing bready malt taste which leaves a light biscuity after taste. A very mild and mellow draft style ale. I would recommend to any cask ale fancier.

pintbypint (2669) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 7, 2004
Sample taken from 341ml brown bottle. Pours dark gold, surprisingly weak head. It as gone 3/4 way through the pint. Awesome aroma of oranges/citrusy hops and honey. Malty body and ends with more hops.

DavidP (1747) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 26, 2004
Clear light amber body, thin white head kept visible by ample carbonation. Fruity aroma, has peach and orange with a light brown sugar undertone. Interesting flavor. Has orange cream ice cream, wheat bread, and coriander spice. Reminds me of a dark-tasting wit, really. Finishes with some resiny, piney hops (they’re light though, not IPA-like). Good stuff!

Aurelius (4313) - 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 (8534) - 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 (8006) - 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 (2910) - 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 (8842) - 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.
