Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 16, 2004
Copper colour with inch-thick foam. Toasty yeast note overtop of caramel and light grassy hops in the aroma. Switch places and the caramel leads the toast around the palate. Moderate bitterness and spritzy carbonation tempers the caramelís potentially cloying influence. Finishes off-dry, mainly yeasty. Well-made, but due to its subtleness (not lightness) it is perhaps not as good as the sum of its parts.

Bottle. Amber colour, white unstable head. Flavour is anonymous. A little bonbon, a hint of rye. Watery aftertaste. Easy to drink. You decide whether that is good or bad.

Itís OK, but feels a bit like a mass-market version of a true Belgian. Man, Iím not doing so hot on this trip to London!

Malakin (469) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 26, 2004
Amber in color with a biscuity malty earthy aroma. Flavour makes me think of a maltier Czech Pilsner, complete with the Saaz hit and slightly metallic.

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2004
Clear amber colour with a thick lasting white head and sticky lacing. Aroma is quite spicy, cherry and fruits, caramel and toffee along with a bit of honey. Flavour is malty, biscuity with spicy hops and fruitiness. Slight soapiness. Really reminds me more of an English-style bitter than any other Belgian Iíve ever had.

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 20, 2004
Pours a nice amber colour with no head (my bad) . Very light in the aroma deptartment some caramel. The taste was fairly staightforward, crisp carbonation, some caramel , hops, dry finish. Average but quite drinkable.

stephen louis (162) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 20, 2004
Well I really like the nose on this one..lots of malt blended with fruity hops...I expected a big taste. taste is good,but actually mild,a sweet beer,mild malt with a fruit middle and a malt finish...good but not special. Lots of carbonation helps this one along giving it a slightly better drinkability.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 17, 2004
Amber coloured beer with a good head. The aroma is sweet, fruity, and malty. Flavor is soft, sweet with some nice maltblend, and slightly bitter. A really good tasty basic amber.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 4, 2004
Somewhat fruity and caramelly but a bit flat in the aroma. Clear copper coloured with strong, off-white head that recedes to thick cover while coating the sides of the glass. Caramel malt flavour up front with some dark sugar fruitiness and a light bitterness in the finish. Lasting fruit on the tongue. Overall quite sweet. Light-medium body and rather quaffable. Itís very easy to drink if somewhat simple and sweet. Bottle (Palm Export 5.2%).
