3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gold with a light creamy head and spotty lace. Nose of sweet, musky malts with honey and grassy hops. Notes of citrus. Husky flavors with light toasted biscuits. Some honey and fruitiness with a slight bitter touch. Musky palate with a finish of malty honeyness. <- I dont know if that is a real word, but as a beer snob, I have the ability to make up words on the fly. Oh, and thanks to Josh and Tim for bringing this from Canada and Jordan for saving it for me.

Lightly hazy yellow, thin head, average lacing. Nose of diacetyl & light sturdy hops, the malts are faint but large & menacing in their footprint. The flavor is actually fairly malty and full bodied with some herbal hops accentuating the finish. Nice cream ale. Thanks Josh.

Bottle Pours a light gold with a small off white head and very little lacing. Arom was light plain and almost pilsner like. Light grains and pale malts and nothing very interesting. Some slightly sweet notes like honey in the flavor with a hay/grass taste. Soft carbonation and a light grain after taste. Thanks again to Buck Dich for sharing

Pours a light golden colour with quickly diminishing head. mildly floral, citric hop nose. The taste was quite pleasant, mild to med. bitter hops, some sweetness finishes clean. It would be nice if these were available in 331ml 6 packs instead of bombers.

650 ml bomber from the Willow park beers store. Pour reveals a deep golden-orangish ale with a nice white cap and good lace. Small bubbled medium carbonation. Aromas of floral maltiness over some citrus hopping and spicy-earthyness. Starts smooth and malty..slightly swee then drys up with citrus hops in the finisg....a very clean drinkable golden ale styled after the cold aged cream ales of yester year.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2004 (Bottle) This pours honey colored with a lacy head nice grapefriut aroma. Nice hops up front with some malt to back it up. An odd finishing taste (a bit sour) but otherwise a really decent beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Has a nice floral nose, with hints of honey in the mouth, but a mediocre grainy dry finish takes away from the start.

A malty light taste. Delightful with food. 650 ml. bottle among 3 buddies was fine. Honey light colour. Unoffensive almost water pour. Light on cream side more on the hop and malts, and that's what we liked. Great mild aftertaste.

UPDATED: MAY 25, 2004 Light color, light body, lightly hopped, very little aftertaste. This one must be for the macro drinkers out there.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A fairly simple beer, golden colour with a thin white lace on top. Had a good balance of malt and hops on the nose. Flavour is also good, with the slightly fruity maltiness balanced by just the right amount of bitterness. Finish is crisp, but without much obvious hoppiness. Well done.
