3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from LCBO in Ottawa, pours a rich dark amber with a little white head. The aroma was hoppy and sweet, some molasses. Taste a bitterness with hops, some grapefruit and gentle sweet malts. Somewhat forceful but I thought it balanced and a nice ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy transparent brown-orange, with head that dissipates instantly. Smells very hoppy. Very very hoppy, but not unpleasant. Hints of bananas and cloves, some vanilla. Palate is medium bodied. Slightly watery, but very smooth. Taste is simple but good. Quite sweet, slightly bitter, no nasty aftertaste. One of the few Ontario beers I’ve tried and not hated :)

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2013 Great aroma. I love Pale Ales with hop. Everything I’ve had from this brewery has been great to amazing.

Tämligen intetsägande med en viss dragning åt Brown Ale hållet. Ska man dricka apa finns det bättre att välja.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Murky, medium brown pour, light brown fizzy head. Lightly sweet aroma, caramel and grassy notes with a light hop edge. Taste is sweet with a slight sourness, caramel, grass and some hop bitterness. Light bodied. Not my favourite.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2010 On tap. Easy to drink, but a bit hoppy and floral with sweet malt. Very decent - glad I had it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours copper, foamy head, average retention, small lace. Aroma is slightly malty, with some orange from the hops. Taste is slightly hoppy, more grapefruit than orange. Some caramel thrown it, but really subtle. I don’t know... That one isn’t bad, but it seems a little aimless to me.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Corner Grill for Ontario Craft Beer Week. Pours a clear amber with a moderate, creamy, off-white head. Aromas are fairly subtle, maybe a little grainy malt and a little floral hops. Taste is very much malt up front with dry, bitter, and biscuity hops asserting themselves on the finish. Creamy mouthfeel, moderate carbonation and a medium astringent finish. A decent but I exciting brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the Beer Store. Pours a slight hazy amber with a small off white head. Nose is mostly caramel and citrus. Lightly hopped for a low level of bitterness. More grassy than anything. Light to medium body that is quite drinkable. A pale ale designed not to offend anyone.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2010 Re-Rate: Bottle right from the Brewery. Medium brown with slight copper tinge. Slightly sweet with a strong hoppy mouth.. slightly drying.. The Hops lasted longer this time around. Deeper, richer and smoother then my first sampling. Not sure why this got a lower rating my first tiem around. Agree with the citrus in the finish,.. almost grapefruit.. A very solid brew.
