3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Coppery color with a mild but adequate head. Nice bit of hops in the aroma. Very smooth and lingers well on the palate.
