1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pretty rough. Maybe it’s just that I don’t like the style. Pours cloudy orange without much head or lacing. Finishes too sweet, too much sugar with candied malt. No real body, average carbonation. Tap at Mill St. Ottawa.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the Ottawa brewpub. Clear golden pour. Aroma of wheat malt and orange peel. Flavor is mild of anything more than malt with some slight diacetyl. Thin, crisp finish. Bland and not particularly interesting.

Draught at C’est What, Toronto
Light amber color, creamy head. Both the aroma and flavor provide a delicate and correct malt feeling; there is some fruity touch more typical of Ales than of Lagers; correct bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed at the Ottawa Brewpub with Lilihel on our first night there, with the ribs special and some nachos. Pours a golden colour with and amber hue and a small white head with minimal lace. The nose is malty with alcohol, hints of bananas and other fruits coming out in the finish. Warming mouthfeel with a little dryness from the hop, in the finish. Taste of sweet malts, well-balanced by the hop to cut into it, with fruit notes (oranges, bananas). Pretty decent Helles Bock that warms up, but does not overpower in any way.

On tap at Ottawa brew pub. Clear golden colour. Aroma of gentle toffee and straw. Taste is better with some fruit maltiness that flattens out quick. Won't have it again.

On tap at the Ottawa brewpub. Limpid golden body with a decent white creamy head. Its malty/hoppy aroma carries fruity and brown sugar hints. Malty/hoppy taste with flowery and herbal notes. Some metallic notes are also noticeable. Ends with a decent, warming bittersweet finish. Not bad.

341ml bottle in seasonal sampler pours a golden orange color with a small off-white head that leaves very little lacing. Aroma is bready malts with some orange zest, light hops and yeast. Taste is malty sweet with the orange and yeast with a mild hop bitterness and some alcohol. A fairly decent light bock style brew which I enjoyed sampling.
