Nice try guys...well not really. I guess they should get kudos for the effort...but execution fails. Weak aroma and weak flavor...weak. better than bud, hell yes. At least that, huh?

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle... Lightly-hazed golden ale with a mid-sized, fluffy, white head. Good retention. Fruity, earthy aroma of mandarin orange, orange blossoms, and fallen brown pine needles with rumors of fresh canvas, charcoal ash and damp leather. Medium to full-bodied with a 2%-milk mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Well balanced, well bittered and technically well made, but seems uninspired. Short, crisp, lightly bitter finish.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Amber beer with a slightly fruity aroma. A bit of lean pale malt. Just a touch of spicy, fruity hops. Flavour is okay, light malt and a touch of citrusy hops. It’s not a bad beer, just kind of boring and non-descript. Tastes like a Canadian pale ale... and that’s not really a compliment.
