JoeMcPhee (8569) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2009
Pint at the brewery. Pale golden pour with a thin white head. The nose is quite light but with a distinct, soft sweetness. A bit of toastiness and a kiss of lightly floral hops. A touch of lingering sweetness. It’s pretty light, but it’s pretty balanced and drinks well.

MartinT (8135) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 6, 2003
Unattractive, fizzy orange caramalt aroma...Citrusy hops and fruity malt hug the carbonation to merge with the emerging, authentic honey...Honey bitterness hastily vanishes into the void of an aftertaste...
