[on cask at Beau’s Oktoberfest, 2012] Aroma is a nice balance of apricot and citrus hops against a sweet caramel backbone. Almost clear, tawny copper under a bubbly, white ring. Lemony citrus flavour with a prominent bitterness and faint peppery, but not phenolic, finish that contains some hops character. Delicate, if a bit boring. Moderate to medium bitterness in the finish, light to medium body moderate to low carbonation.

[4966-20121120] Tap. Light grainy fruit aroma. Hazy, orange brown body with a long-lasting creamy white head. Citrus lemon orange juice flavour has a bitter bite initially that quickly fades to fruit. Medium body. Quite delicious, there’s a funny sour-like tang somewhere. (7/3/7+/3/16) 3.6

Tessic (906) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 19, 2012
This Pale ale poured a clear, medium yellow colour with a quick living, frothy, white head. To the nose there are scents of grass hops, spruce trees and a light vanilla. First sip was nice and flavourful, but not as bitter/hoppy as you might take from the aroma. Flavours of honey, cereal and toast most prodominant. Finish is hoppy but only medium bitter with citrus/grass flavours lingering.

blankboy (6264) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2012
Draught at Rhino. Nov. 20. Pours a cloudy orange-amber with a small diminishing white head. Aroma is lovely, lots of fruit and spice, lime and pumpkin, a good amount of hops and finally, yeast. Flavour of yeast, fruit, light spice, very light hops and a good amount of herbs. Average to medium bodied. Very good.

341ml bottle from the brewery. shimmering golden, white head. pungent hoppy nose. the flavour is massively hoppy but i love the marris otter base and the cara malt is not over done. superb.

jercraigs (8060) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 6, 2012
2012-11-20. Hazy golden orange body with a small white head. 3+ Flavour is interesting, almost a lightly funky orange peel character up front, modest bitterness throughout, sweetish mild malt in the middle, dry bitter finish, sort of spicy in the background. 7++ Aroma is similar, lightly funky orange, something I want to call cat food but isn’t (Is that from the beer or a food smell from somewhere else?) 7+ Average plus bodied palate. 3+ Super interesting, I like it but it is kind of odd. On tap at Rhino, Toronto

pootzboy (1597) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 23, 2012
bottle from the brewery store: another wet hop ale from this brewer. This time with a PacNW APA as a base. Freshly harvested green hop cones were sourced locally. Pours a hazy deep gold with a sticky 2 finger white cap. Moderate carbonation. Aroma is very nice, signature Pac NW citus/floral notes but brighter/fresher over a sturdy cereal tone. Flavor follows aroma with the bright citrus-piney hops slightly fronting the bready malting - finish is clean and increasingly bitter-dry with a nice juicy hop bite at the end. A very decent sipping pale for pasta dishes and as a stand alone sessioner. Kudos to the brewer on making a very tasty approachable wet hop ale.

Lubiere (10453) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 29, 2012
A golden amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, a smooth caramel malt with British hops. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with grassy herbal hops, citrus pulp, alcohol. Cask at Beau’s Oktoberfest Sept 29 2012.

LilBeerDoctor (3505) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2012
On tap at Wvrst. Pours a cloudy light orange with a thick creamy white head. Aroma of caramel malt, light citrus hops, wheat malt. Flavor of bitter hops and crisp bready malts with sharp citrus and more bread in the finish. Tasty! 7/4/7/4/14 [3.6/5]
