Nice golden pour, with a fluffy white head. A nice grassy, light citrus nose. Quite floral, some honey and paper. The body is a little fuller than i expected. Its not as crisp as i was thinking it would be, it seems muddled. The citrus is gone in the finish, and all thats left is subtle grassy hops, and some bready, muddled malts.

Spab (2289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 16, 2013
500 ml bottle from LCBO (part of Hen House mix pack). Pours a clear golden colour with average-sized white head. Aroma is nice, pungent, grassy/floral hops with sweetish grains. Flavour has punchy grassy/floral hops, grains and fruity malt. Drying finish. A pleasant surprise - a real step up from the other Hen House beers.

Metalchopz (2207) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 14, 2013
Part of the Morland Variety 4-pack at the LCBO for Christmas 2013. Pours a clean golden-amber with a frothy white cap, decent retention and some soapy lace. Nice fresh hops that remind me of American Pale Ales (grass, grapefruit, grain). The taste is grainy with light hops and notes of honey. A real nice light golden ale that has a touch of APA.

Ferris (2993) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 14, 2013
Bottle - Grass, grapefruit and light caramel. Clear gold with a thin head. Biscuit, caramel and light hop bitterness. Much better than I expected from a lighter ale. Very tasty.

probstblueribbon (2864) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2013
50 cl bottle in a mixed pack from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass. Clear golden with a small white head. Surprisingly nice hops...mainly grassy and peppery with a little pine and floral character, biscuit malt support, grapefruit, quite nice. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Lots of nice, fresh hops, Saaz-like with some citrus and resin, still has light, biscuit malt support, tasty; dry with gentle bitterness and a pleasantly hoppy, balanced finish. Dang, this is nice!

After a very long wait, I finally got my paws on this brew! Pours a gorgeous, almost-clear golden color with a fluffy white head. Earthy aromas of cereal grains, dewy grass and a sweet bouquet of spicy hops. Taste is all hops at the beginning with malty and fruity English barley following close behind. Aftertaste is pleasantly hoppy and long-lasting. Body is light, crisp and refreshing with mild carbonation. Overall, a light, but tasty brew with a low ABV; the perfect recipe for warm weather!

Pours clear golden yellow with a white ring. Aroma is bready, grainy malts with honey. Taste is clean honey and fruity gains.
