3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 7, 2005 Golden straw colour. Grassy hop note dominates the aroma, with a hint of bready malts. The bitterness is low but the malts bready and clean. The hops are grassy and fresh. Evenly balanced.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
(500ml bottle) Pours a medium, white, frothy head and a clear, gold, lightly-carbonated body. Nose of tin and grains. It tastes of sweet malt and corn with a undertone of pasty hops. Too sweet and lacking character. Poor.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Yellow , light and fizzy. Barely no head. Light grainy aroma with some mineral touches. Tsaste is initially dryish with sweetness developping in aftertaste with the light chalky hops comming at the end, similar to a carbonated mineral water. I do note some roasted notes in the end also.

1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Yellow straw color with a modest off white head. Lightly sweetened grits aroma. HInt of dry hay and floral hops. Usually I like the first brew of the day, but... Light sweet start (somewhat grainy). Heads to a dry chalky bitter middle. Sweetness comes back later and sticks to the mouth tongue and throat. Dryed herb in the finish. Unbalanced and nearing sickening by the end of the bottle.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours gold, herbal hop aroma. Bit of barnyard but no skunk. Apperance is that it is flat, though there is ample carabonation. Apple juice and spice. Some berry in the middle. Malts and roast come out in the end. It doesn’t taste all that great.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
The bottle available in Ontario states the ABV as 5.2%? Corn and faint hops in the aroma, pale yellow, medium sized white head, some lace. Faded malt taste, followed by a slight hops bitterness, light bodied. Uninspired offering.

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tasted in Toronto from the LCBO. Tasted in dimple mug. Appearance is very clear, very very light yellow with a somewhat steady and sustained white cumulous head. Aroma is slightly sour with a light grainy hint. Taste is fairly middle of the road - starts off with a slightly sweet taste and then mutates into a very subtle bitter taste with a hint of a metalic finish.
