3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Rusty reddish hazy pour with a nice clingy white head. Draft at Gigs in London. Somewhat weak scent of citrus and fresh cut grass. Wet and refreshing. A bust of flavours at first that slowly mellows to almost nothing in the finish. It has just a touch of that pale ale bite right in the middle. Very subtle despite the name. Best beer Iíve had so far tonight.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy deep gold with a thin white cap. The aroma is citrusy, malty, candy orange, good. The flavour starts out with a harsh hop bitterness, but then quickly moves onto a light refreshing mingle of malt and hop, and then ends with some grapefruit bitterness. Finish is a bit soapy.
It does a few things bad, but it does most things well. Decent brew.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle - pours clear gold/copper with a thick white head that leaves chunky lacing. Aroma similar to many of GRís other beers in that itís muted, a result of the incredibly hard water they use. Still, nice - caramel malts, some green apple, a faint hint of sourness (not in a bad way). Flavour amps it up a notch, revealing fresh mown hay, light lemon notes, and a pleasing herbal quality, finished with a firm bitterness. Clean, simple, eminently quaffable, yet another solid release from GRB.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours near-clear copper-bronze, minimal head. Aroma is led by the grainy malts - almost a pilsner-esque character to it. Taste is similar with mild malt sweetness cut by pretty persuasive bitterness. Not too much hop aromas. A little fruityness at the end, with a little caramel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2011 500ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a nice clear orange. A nice, but not too strong, fruity aroma. Malty caramel taste, with a bitterness similar to Grand Riverís othersí: Galt Knife, Plowmanís, and Curmudgeon. A very nice pale ale; nothing mindblowing, but itís not meant to be.
