Draft pour into a pint glass. The beer is a clear gold with a white head of foam. The aroma is pretty faint, but lends a crisp bready persona, it is just very light. The taste has bready, grainy qualities. Light in body and medium to high carbonation.

This is a overall nice golden ale. The aroma is actually quite nice and it looks like a great refreshing beer. It has a crisp first taste, but near the end becomes a bit too bland and tasteless. Overall, it's a refreshing light beer for a summer day.

On tap @ Darcy McGee's Kanata. Pours a clear light straw with a thin white head. Aromas of pine and light citrus (pineapple). Tastes are grainy malt and maybe a little citrus hop. Light body, medium carbonation, short finish. This beer had some promise on the aroma but the hop character is obviously for aroma and not so much taste. This is sort of a confusing beer, aroma says APA, taste says standard ale.

A decent summer beer. But Iím still not a fan of the citra hop variety. The hop does have a "citrus" quality, but then also a "spruce" character to them, especially in the aroma and aftertaste which could be offensive to some people, especially the "non-hophead I hate IPA " crowd. If your a "hophead" youíll probably love this light summer brew! Overall, I do like this beer.: Iím not a hophead, but still like IPAs. It is crisp and has that seasonal flavor. I would like it more with a different hop variety of a lower alpha.

For a golden ale it follows the rules. Good color and had real flavor. Not exciting but golden ales arenít. Tap

On tap at the Bier Markt (Don Mills). Pours a clear, bright golden colour with good-sized, lasting white head. Aroma is sweet, caramelly malt and some modest floral hoppiness. Flavour has some sweetness too with caramel, fruit and some floral hopping. Light bitterness in finish. Straightforward, but well made.

Poured from 12oz brown bottle into a schooner glass. It poured a clear golden colour with shortlived white foam. Aroma was slight, not offensive, but not particularly fresh. Just a hint of citrusy hops in the aroma and flavour. I would not have guessed Galaxy and Citra, but I could tell it was a little something special. Weak, non-descript grainbill, mushy mouthfeel. Light body, moderate carbonation, slightly metallic aftertaste. Not great, but an okay summer refreshment if served very cold.
