1 litre swing-top bottle poured pale golden color with small white head and spots of lacing. Aromas are mild grains and a hint of honey. Taste is lightly sweet with a faint hint of hop bitterness. Good carbonation provides adequate mouthfeel. This is just another average pale ale.

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 5, 2011
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?

Matts_Property (830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 3, 2011
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.

Had a sampler glass at the brewery. Aroma: vanilla, hops. Appearance: clear yellow, lots of carbonation, no head. Palate: smooth, slightly bitter finish, small body. Taste: nuttier than expected, but quite sweet.

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.

Scubaguy (230) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 14, 2010
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.

Sask89 (499) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - JUL 31, 2010
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.
