Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 12, 2006
Hazy light amber colour. Musty, oxidized yeasty aroma. Musty, fairly yeasty flavour, too. Tastes old but would it ever have been decent...I doubt it. There are no hops, stale or otherwise and the malts and dull as dishwater. It’s a bit of a forsenic rating, so discard it if you wish, but I’ve seen good beer go bad and this isn’t it.

Bottled: Golden coloured. Clear. Off white head. Hoppy and flowery nose. Flavour is quite thin. Some hops, some malt, some fruityness. Ends on a light sweet note. Thaks Sammy for this.

Sammy (8917) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2005
Most interesting. A creaminess that kept up through the finish. Very good and a citrus hoppiness unique to me. Some mettalic with a little bitterness, more fruitiness, all-in-all a palate cleaner and refreshing.Thanks DouglasD for bringing back from Kiwi land.
