A light blonde/straw coloured canadian style ale, light to medium bodied, 17 IBU’s, clean, crisp with a hint of nuts and fruit.....quite satisfying for a light beer.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2005 Draft @ Split Crow. Sold as Split Cream. Golden yellow, moderate creamy white head. Muted grainy malt in the aroma. Fairly mild flavour struggles in a too cold serving. Mild bitterness, and touch of grainy malt. Flavour grows as it warms and you work your way through the pint. Flavours grow in intensity but mostly just more of the same. Creamy medium palate is about as full as it could be for the style. Quaffable. 6/5/3+/4/13-14<P> Draft @ Peddlers Pub. Dark golden body, small white head and decent lacing. Aroma is dominated by a fruitiness, touch of malt and cidery notes. Sweetish body, just a touch of bitterness under more fruity under currents. Average palate. Quaffable but very unexciting. If this is the same beer as at the crow, this must not have been in great shape. 5/3/5/3/10

Sampled with the pigeons on the patio. Light yellow color with a small ring of white foam. Grassy, acidic aroma with minimal malt profile & some over-ripe apple. Taste is the same, with bad tinny aftertaste... i will not have another one of these.

Pours a clear golden color with a ring of white lace. Weak aroma of hops. Mild flavor of malt and hops. The body is light to medium with a creamy texture and soft carbonation.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2003
Pale yellow. Lightly fruity aroma (cherry, grape); very light body. Rather macroish, unfortunately.

UPDATED: OCT 5, 2004 Very pale gold, much like the local blond ales (Keith's, Oland's). Thick and creamy white head. Light bitter and floral hop aroma. Taste is similar to those local blond macros, but bigger. Also a lot less carbonation, not as prickly and soda like. Medium bitter taste which builds on the finish. A touch thin on the palate, but a big step up from said macro blond ales.
