COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Sparkling Ale (6/05)
A golden export-style ale made from only malt and hops, no fillers or adjuncts. A brillant golden colour gives a “sparkling” appearance as the gas escapes from the glass. The natural sweetness of the malt is perfectly balanced by the bitterness derived from the hops. This beer represents the way blonde ales were made 100 years ago.

Despite being in a clear body I never got any skunk from this one. Taste of bread and hay with light grassy hops. A reasonable body with a sweeter aftertaste. I like the look of it in the clear bottle. Wouldn’t normally buy it, but it comes in the taster pack.

341 ml bottle. Pours a clear, pale gold with a thin white head. Aroma is malt and grain. Flavour is malt, with mild hops and a dry, bitter finish. Light body, watery texture and average carbonation.

Light golden colour. Nice white head. Grassy and bready aroma. Malty and hop aroma. Smooth. Second inline of the Mill Street beers for me.

Clear gold pour, a finger of head. Not much to get excited about here....a slightly fruity, minimally hoppy ale. On the other hand, this was a welcome break from sleemans at the staff holiday party.

Atheist_Peace (927) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 18, 2013
Golden pour, clear, with a tall white head. Slightly gingerbready nose. Otherwise nondescript and grainy. Very generic beer palate. Boring.

lesifflebiere (1188) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 24, 2013
Généreuse mousse blanche, sur un liquide bien doré qui émet peu d’odeurs, sinon des céréales blondes et un tout petit peu de sucre. En bouche, elle est assez ronde, présente très peu de flaveurs de houblons, et est plutôt mince, comme on pouvait s’y attendre. Bière de soif sans grande personnalité ni attraits, mais qui joue bien son rôle, bien que celui-ci soit plutôt simple.

Minderbinder (1671) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 18, 2013
On tap at Toronto airport. Pours clear ligth brown with low white head. Aroma is of malt, some fruits (apples). Taste is of apples, pils-like stuff, malt. Palate: Ligth. Overall: Not too bad, but not interesting.

BreWedge (295) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 15, 2013
341 ml bottle @ Petit Bill's Ottawa. Pours a super clear pale yellow with a moderate white head. Aroma is grain dominant with some sweet malts present. Tastes are grain, mild alcohol and a faint hoppy bitterness. Relatively thin body, carbonation very present (probably more noticeable due to mild taste). Nice example of a golden ale, good for a hot summer day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

shorlin (636) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - JUN 9, 2013
Pretty nice looking beer for what it is. Not much head, but decent lacing. Pale yellow, good solid carbonation. Aroma is biscuity, very little hop in there at all. Taste is quite sweet, but a decent length of finish for a simple beer. Decent beer for drinking a couple.

Don’t pour this one. Pull it out of an ice chest. Sweet start; crisp finish. The soda pop of ales.
