Canned sample. Pale orange in colour with medium (and soft) carbonation. Aromas are of tangerine, pale malt, and toasted nuts. More mild sweet citrus and toasted grain in the mouth along with a hint of caramel. Soft bitterness, but clean finishing. Not bad overall.

tgncc (2830) - Bellmore, New York, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Weak caramel malt aroma. The flavor is malty, toast. The finish is pine. Medium in body. Ok. No defects, is he best I can say.

Light amber colour with a white head. Very sweet malty aroma. Sweet malty taste with some citrus cascade hop flavour as well. Slightly bitter finish to it.

BrewDad (5004) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2014
The Great BrewDad Victoria Pub Crawl 2014 - Light amber in color, clear with a thin head. Super Pale ale with great hops backing. Nice and tasty.

asheft (2544) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
On tap. Sweet base malt aroma with some oxidation cardboard. Almost clear copper under a lasting, lacy white sheet. Sweet malt flavour quickly yields to bitterness and faint US hops. Unpleasant cardboard and ethanol. Medium light body, medium carbonation, lingering tangy bitter finish.

Light amber colour with a white head. Hoppy taste with a taste similar to biscuits and aroma too match. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is the beer I use to coax Coors Light drinkers into giving craft beers a go. Its mild colour, mild aroma, and mild hoppiness place it squarely in the middle of the road for more adventurous tasters.

Ipaluvr082 (60) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle, medium amber with a thin off white head. A highly sessionable beer with maltiness and a slightly caramel, soapy hoppy finish.

Citrus on the nose and tongue. Light amber in the glass . Hint of sweetness with slight bitter finish. Nice balance. Good sipper.

exeter (313) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 15, 2014
Tastes of grapefruit hops, biscuit and caramel. A little bitterness at the end. It’s a nice light beer with good balance. Nothing off putting.
