On tap at the brewpub. Appearance: very light orange with a tiny white head. Aroma: Slight grass, a little malt, light lactose too. Flavour: grassy burn at first, good amount of malt with some banana skin notes. A long bitter lemon finish. Not bad.

JulienHuxley (5463) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 5, 2010
On cask. The aroma is quite discrete but pleasant; light floral with burnt caramel. Grainy taste with a nice herbal bitterness finish. Some cocoa powder too. Palate was a little too thin for a cask. Good beer but somewhat boring.

TheJester (2394) - Cavan Monaghan, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Aroma is floral hops and malt. The hops are quite mild for a dry-hopped beer. The hops are more evident in the flavour, where the malt contributes a nice, if simple, balance. Solid body. Low carbonation. Not bad.

mabel (8014) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2009
[2260-20090606] Cask. Citrus malty zest aroma. Hazy, medium orange brown body with a quick bubbly off-white head. Mild tea citrus flavour has a mild zest. Smooth medium body. Under-carbonated and casky flat but drinkable and good.

First time i see this beer at the brewpub, i thought i was just a mis spelling when i saw it on their wall. But alas no, its an english pale ale! THe hops come through, but it’s a little thin on flavor, this could use more malt.

rodenbach99 (4016) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2009
une pinte sur place, bière de couleur classique, cuivrée-dorée, mousse abondante et épaisse. nez de fruits (ester) beaucoup de fruit, manque d’amertume pour une bière houblonnée à froid.

swoopjones (7021) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 6, 2008
on tap @ Brewpub. Pours a nice deep golden caramel orange color. Aromas of malt, tea, light citrus hops. Pretty good EPA but they are not at the top of my list. Nice representation of the style. Malty, slight hop bitterness. Nice beer

blankboy (7072) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2008
Cask at L’Amère à Boire. Pours a cloudy dark orange with an average size lasting foamy white head. Mild but pleasant citrus hop aroma with caramel malt, light spices and some fruit. Flavour is just hoppy enough to make me a happy camper. Average to medium bodied. A very enjoyable Pale Ale.

HogTownHarry (6373) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2008
Cask. at LaB. Very cloudy amber pour with an average lasting foamy white head. Leafy, dry perfume/herbal hop aroma, nicely balanced by mildly roasted caramel malt. Terrific taste - simple, refreshing ... dusty floral bitterness, light sweet malt. Soft, light mouthfeel, a whisper of squeaky astringency, a fast delicate quick finish. Really did have a mild tea-like character, man this place makes solid beers.

Cask at the brewpub. Hazy orange-amber with a thin head. Aroma of orange zest, tropical fruit and earl grey tea. Soft mouthfeel. Mellow flavour of sweet caramel balanced by fruity, citric hops, and a herbal tea finish. Not too bad.
