3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tried this one over a year back from a bottle bought from a BC liquor store. Had a nice sweet taste, some unique elements in the flavour, was okay, taste was a little artificial to be a bitter though. I think the name is the main driver behind buying a bottle!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[2333-20090726] 1L bottle. Grainy mild hops aroma with mild wet grass hints. Clear, light orange brown body with a medium-lasting foamy off-white head. Grainy bitter toasted leaves flavour with a fruity finish. Medium body is bitter. Nice bitterness, drinkable, great start to the evening but otherwise nothing special.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle my Dad brought back from V.I. Clear golden yellow pour with a frothy, thick white foam with very good retention. Smell is sweet malts, a little grainy. Taste is mild hops, malts, and a herby kind of sweetness with that crisp, bitter finish. Not my favourite style of beer, but certainly enjoyable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
2009-07-26. Golden yellow-orange body with a nice foamy beige head. (3+) Mild hoppy aroma, grassy notes, muted malts. Mild flavour is grainy, light bitterness, grassy touches in the hops, very light astringency in the back end. Average to light palate. Okay, but too mild. Bottle shared by Jon Walker

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 8, 2009 Time again for the always welcome one litre swingtop bottle from Howe Sound. Producing just over two fingers of frothy white head covering a lovely clear copper body, the aroma was giving up some malty notes. Taste was assuredly bitter; no shortage of hops here. Mouthfeel and finish also had some bite to them, thanks again, hops. Thoroughly enjoyable, easily the best Canadian-made bitter I’ve had (maybe the only one?). Good beer, this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gold pour with creamy white head and lace. Aroma of pepper and lemon. A flavor that mirrors the aroma to a T. A bit thin and foamy but a very decent beer.

Pours a glowing orange with yellow highlights. The head is decent, white and sticky. Aroma has a lot of dandelion. Malt, earth, spice, caramel and vegital notes. Palate has dandelion, boiled veg, caramel, and spice. The palate is almost dead. Very drinkable beer, not fantastic though.

Bottle. Pours a pales yellow-gold with a quickly reduced white head, that leaves a persistent ring and good lacing. Nose of soft malt, biscuit, mild hop presence in the nose; nice and crisp and malty and clean. Palate is also light and clean with decent hopping, good fruity maltiness, and a crisp finish. A very sessionable but not terribly complex bitter.
