3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
341 ml bottle - pours clear gold/green with a small whitish head that lasts for most of the glass. Aroma grainy, slightly chalky, grassy, herbal hops. Flavour is pretty straightforward, sweet pale malt in good balance with mildly lemony hops. Pretty decent "Canadian" Pale Ale (think Black Oak), and something I’ve been quaffing a lot of this summer. Great hot weather sessioner. It’s improved greatly since I last had it a couple years ago.

Cascadian, aroma reminded me of lemon pepper, which is nice. On the malt side, yep nice and delicately done. Nothing spectacular, but deserving of a 3 rating, which means "good".

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Poured a light golden color ale with a nice large foamy head with OK retention and limited lacing. Aroma of semi-sweet cereal notes with some unrefined grain notes also detectable. Taste is also a mix between some cereal notes with some unrefined grain notes and some light dry hops. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not bad overall but light notes of unrefined grain are more or less interesting.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 mL Draft had at a pub. Yellow-gold body with a foamy white head settling to a clingy film. Sweet malts with noted of pungent hops and earth come through in the nose. Sweet light malts with a crispness to it that would go well with crackers or pretzels, hops come up in the aftertaste without being too imposing. Pleasantly light with hops lingering in the finish. Yeah, I could have a session with this.

Very smooth drink. On tap at pepperwood beerfest. Has good but slight hop aroma up front. Neither sweet nor bitter but a light version of a pale ale

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This one was not the greatest and not what I was expecting. The pour is a bright golden/amber with a huge frothy white head. Some thick lacing rings. The nose is overly grainy with a fresh floral hop with prominent pine and light citrus. The taste is grainy and bland overall with a medium body. An overall grainy taste with a light hop on the finish. An overall light skunk and a very ’off’ taste. Overall, the nose was great but the taste fell way short in my opinion.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I tried this beer on October 17, 2011 after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer pours a light golden orange ini colour with a thin tan head that lasts a while. Aroma is citrusy hops, caramel, and light fruit. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is caramel, fruit, weak grapefruit, and a nice bitter finish. This would definitely make a great session beer.
