Gorbalev (2937) - 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 (7974) - 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!...

CapFlu (4550) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 28, 2003
(Bottle) Pour a thin, white, quick dissipating head and a light copper body. Pleasant aroma of hops. Great hoppy flavour. Finishes ever so lightly bitter. Nice

caledonian (367) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 30, 2003
UPDATED: NOV 1, 2005 Nice light copper color. Malty aroma. Fairly well balanced. Slightly bitter, malty finish. Not bad.

Amber colour, whitish head. Very strong hop flavour with quite a bitter aftertaste.

shorlin (662) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - JUN 17, 2003
Decent amberish colour. Little head and not much in the lace department. Aroma is reasonably hoppy. Kind of smells like Cascades, but I don't really believe so. Some day I'm gonna learn more about hops. Tastes mostly bitter, with some cookie-dough malt at the beginning. Not much finish. Mildly bitter aftertaste. Overall, not bad at all. Surprising for something I picked at random.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - APR 4, 2003
Clear orangish amber w/ no head. Mild hops and faint fruit (grapefruit) on the nose. Thinnish body. Mildly malty, moderately bitter.

Cartoonkhaki (1220) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 1, 2003
Hoppy malty nose. Golden colour. Nice creamy white head that vanished. Bitter malty hoppy flowery in flavour.

presario (4656) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 12, 2002
Unassuming bottle and beer. Light aroma. Average looking but a beautiful flavourful mix of hops, malt and bitterness. An excellent beer. Thanks to Mr_Kimchee for the exchange.
