mcberko (13057) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 12, 2015
750mL bottle, pours a clear dull golden with a medium white head. Nose is very strange, with strange earthy and armpit notes, and biscuity malt on the back end. Flavour is just as strange, with earthy, fungal notes, armpits and biscuity malt. This is very dull and rather off. Not a disaster, but not good.

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.

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.It’s just a clean, fresh tasty APA.
Earlier Rating: 9/22/2013 Total Score: 3.5
Tap at C’est 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.

Bottle, shared with TylerDurden. Bright hazy orange, nice creamy head. Orange citrus hop character, some grassy notes too, mildly bitter finish, not too sweet in the malt department. Quite nice, subdued.

blankboy (7124) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2013
Bottle [750ml]. Pours a hazy, bubbly yellow-gold with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head and a good amount of lacing on the glass. Nice aroma of grain, citrus hops, fruit and herbs. Flavour of citrus hops, fruit, herbs and an average bitter finish. A touch watery but it’s quite tasty. Average bodied. Really enjoyable and easy to drink.
