3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Single bottle purchased from Co-op Liqour Store on 05/27/2011 in Calgary, AB. Colour: Mostly yellow with just a dash of orange and medium spoty white head. Nose: Extremely soft but with character. Was able to detect young malt, touch of industrial honey, and a hint of peach. Taste: Light sweet, light sour, light bitter. Again - very soft. Light fruit basket from start to finish - a spot of sourdough mid to late. Creamy mouth feel. Why so mild here?

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
1L bottle, split with mcberko, pours pale golden orange. Aroma of stale malts, light honey and not much else. Flavour is watered down, weak, unexciting... generic pale ale with a slight touch of honey. Not good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
1L Flip-top bottle. Pours a pale leyyow with a moderate white head, lots of carbonation. Aroma: Sweet, floral. Tates: malty, notes of hay, caramel, vanilla. Some hop bitterness, herb-like. Finishes grassy. Pretty good; a good ’gateway beer’ to craft beer.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The flavor has some malt,honey,some grains. It feels pretty thin. I can’t say it’s unbalanced because there is not enough of anything to really stand out.
When it comes to the aroma there is nothing special going on. I am getting some honey, sweet malt, floral notes.
Pours a golden color with a nice white head that quickly vanishes to a thin ring. It has a ton of carbonation for the style
It finishes with quite a bit of sweetness and the hops make a short appearance. I feel disappointed with this offering. This is suppose to be a pale ale but feels like a pale lager to me.

Pours a clear yellow. almost a lager smell to it. Very "dad" times reminiscent. Honey is there as promised. No hops to fight the sweet. Very nice summer beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear pale yellow almost golden colour with a medium frothy white head. Aroma is of floral and citrus hops with a light grainy maltiness to it as well. Taste is of bread malts and a sweet honey like flavour with a mild bitter hoppy finish. Light body, average carbonation and smooth mouth feel. Overall a good drinking beer but nothing amazing.
