341ml bottle from Romsey Beer Emporium. Straw with a thin white head; musty grainy aroma; sweet grainy body; and a sweet biscuity finish. A pretty dour pale ale.

Been holding on a while to rate this one, as I could only find it in 24-pack. Now, found this 12. I remember liking this one better than all other Moosehead... back in the day. Looks like a typical macro-ale with a mild golden colour, a white frothy-foam head, average retention and some decent creamy-foam lace. Seems like they changed the recipe since I enjoyed this one. Lots of corn. In the aftertaste. Lingering. From the bottle, it is almost better as in a glass, the hop is like rusty water (chemical junk). Not much aromas. Yeah... not the ale I remember. Will never buy again.

thmsboyd (69) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Bottle, well-chilled, unknown BBE. Clear golden body with small white head. Malty nose, prominent butyric, rather one-dimensional. Heavy sweetness followed by a medium bitterness. Light body, thin dry texture and a slightly below average carbonation. A bland beer in poor condition.

Bottle 341 ml. Clear yellow color. Simple ale with average taste and aroma, some fruits, sugar and nuts, disappointment.

Clear golden beer with a fruity, sugary smell. Flavour has a slightly sickly-sweet tang to it but thereís just enough bitterness in the hops to balance it out a bit. The taste itself is a touch watery but the beer does have a bit of body in itís favour. Itís not anything special but itís pretty drinkable.

edsspoon (729) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2014
Bottle - golden with a fizzy white head. Aroma of malt, faint grass, not much else. Taste of malts, light grass and lemon, not much in the taste either. Light body, medium carbonation. Tastes like this beer hasnít seen a hop in its life.

slowrunner77 (6722) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 15, 2014
mmm...Canadian macro pale ale! Admittedly, better than Moosehead premium or the light, but nothing resembling a pale ale of any kind. just not as skunky crap watery as the others.

GuideDogSaint (727) - Xiamen, CHINA - OCT 8, 2014
341ml bottle from Tasty Life, Xiamen. Pours golden yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is metallic with malt. Bitterness in the taste with a hint of citrus. No great finish. Bit of a disappointment.
