Note to Ontario brewmasters: There are other hops besides Goldings. This is a little timid and unbalanced, besides, but seriously, every beer around here tastes the same and it’s getting on my nerves.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark gold with orange hues, and a nice thcik white head. A light biscuitty malt arises with light English hops, and some apple esters. In mouth, a good decent EPA with night floral hops, some orange notes, and sweet caramel malt, rather short in mouth, with light metallic finish. A decent ale.

medium yellow with creamy head. some citrus taste perhaps from yeast and malt, hop punch, solid carbonation attacks tongue and stays there for aftertaste.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer is a dark amber color with a medium thin light beige head and decent lacing. The aroma is a little fruity (sour apple) with a pinch of hops. Medium-bodied and tart, with flavors of malt, molasses and sour fruit. Very little hops in the flavor or finish. As for the finish it is lightly bitter and short. Overall this beer is not very impressive.

Transparent brownish amber. Small head, low gas. Nice rich aroma, some sweetness, bark of an alder. Creamy, friendly beer that is fun to drink.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear and bright deep golden ale of limited head growing potential. Quite fruity up front, more so than I expected, it immediately proposes citrus, tart honeyed apple and orange notes, a strange mixture that ultimately works okay, but feels quite alone as the hop profile is highly simplistic, barely whispering some flowery suggestions. Light bodied and without much substance, light-to-moderate carbonation. Perhaps a bit too clean. Getting a bit old I imagine, but oxidation was not really advanced, carrying perhaps minimal old pencil/graphite notes.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (341ml). At October 2005 Winking Judge BeerFest, Hamilton. Poured clear full golden-amber with a bubbly small white head. Aroma of grains, sour malt, some corn, stale hops - a bit sweet. Taste is honey-sweet malt, some straw/hay grain - quite clean and free of adjuncts and nastiness. Mouthfeel fizzy and a bit thin. Tastes decent, quite quenching, nic Canadian non-macro brew.
