Thanks to cfrancis for this one. Pours a hazy pale yellow with a small white head and no lace. Aroma of citrus, steamed veggies, chlorophyll, fresh cut grass and light sweet malts. Taste is veggies, tropic fruit, fresh cut grass, caramel maltiness and a nice smooth smooth bitterness throughout. Medium carbonation gives and a medium body give this beer a very easy to drink feel.

750ml bottle from the LCBO. Pale yellow with a hint of amber and an initial generous head that fades to a thin layer that coats the beer. Muted and wet tropical hops with an overlay of caramel malts, refreshing. Moderate carbonation with a strong flavour profile yet easy to drink, little too sweet on the finish for my liking although there is an underlying bitterness throughout.

750ml bottle from the LCBO. Pours a hazy very pale orange with a generous white head and lots of lacing. Nose is fresh cut grass, hay and citrus with a layer of honey in the background. Lots of hops bitterness through the front and middle but smoothed out by a peaches and honey sweetness. The finish could use some more punch. The body is light and slick with average carbonation. Very easy drinking.

Aroma of some citrus hops with a lot of malt here. More like an English Pale Ale in flavour. Leaves with light bitterness. Pours clear orange with decent head and lacing. Bottle.

Pours a murky honey colour with a huge billowy head. Aroma notes include roasted malts, crackers, bread, citrus and pine hops. Tasting notes include delicious pine hops, notes of mango, graham crackers, and a slightly bitter finish. Supurb!!

Pale golden straw pour with a thin white head. The aroma is great - bright lemon and orange/grapefruit citrus with s bit oflesn psle malt. Very fresh and fruity. No real problems here.Itís just a clean, fresh tasty APA.

Tap at Cíest What. Hazy golden-orange pour. The aroma is odd. A bit of orange and juicy fruit/orange sherbet aroma. Light cat pee and a touch of kiwi. Interesting tropical fruit flavour. Moderate bitterness and a touch of soft lingering fruit flavour. Pretty interesting actually.

TheJester (1943) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 26, 2013
750 mL bottle. Hazy orange-gold with a medium, sticky, bright, white head. Aroma of fresh C-hops, with pine resin and a little sweet mandarine. The flavour is good because itís a little different; hard to describe, but there is almost a hint of a Christoffel Nobel or Schneider Hopfen weisse or that sort of thing. Which makes me wonder about the flavour hops in this one. or maybe Iím just imagining things. Nice hop/malt balance. Not a lot of bitterness. Very drinkable.

A hazed golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with nice citrusy floral hops, peaches, nice. In mouth, a smooth fruity malt with light grassy floral hops, a bit light but nice. Cask Days 2013.
