Not bad. Pours slightly cloudy copper with lots of frothy head and tons of lacing. Nose is juicy and grain. Flavours of cheerios, peach some earthy bitterness. Taste med/light bitter, light sweet. Medium sticky body with lively carbonation.

Yellow body with a hint of Amber colour, a frothy off white head, and a sweet grassy aroma. Taste is smooth, slight bitter, grassy and floral. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fat @ Beerbistro, Toronto. Klar orange öl med ett bubbligt vitt skum som snart sjunker samman. Dofter av citrus och säd. Smakinslag av karamell, grapefrukt och blomster. Medelbeska.

Kauge (941) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 11, 2015
Tap at Prenup Pub in Toronto. Clear amber with excellent head formation and retention, also lace. The relatively mild aroma is fruity and resiny. Tastes... surprisingly good! So fresh, so refreshing! So subtly fruity, without any specific ones standing out. Good malt backbone, although the bitterness takes hold in mid-taste, continuing into finish. Soft, velvety smooth mouthfeel, subtle carbonation. Not at all too light, but goes down very easy. Ah, an excellent quencher after a horribly busy day.

DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 18, 2015
Tall can, shared by the manager @ Vineyards in Ottawa. Medium amber, off white head. Grainy, a bit doughy, light caramel, light apricot, low bitterness. Not great.

lesifflebiere (1521) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2015
Orangée un brin opaque, mousse couleur érable, nez de pêches et de sucre d’orge. La bouche est plutôt ronde, relativement complexe malgré la simplicité du style, avec des notes fruitées pour commencer, enrobées ensuite pour finir sur une vague houblonnée qui débute en amertume et se termine en âcreté pointue mais pas désagréable. Une pale ale qui frôle la India, une bonne bière en général.

473 mL can. Copper to amber pour, medium white head, okay retention. Sweet malt aroma, caramel, also some light hops, fruit. Good balance taste of sweet malt and lightly bitter hops. Resin and pine hop finish that pretty nice.

Listigovers (572) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2015
Hoppy and bready aroma. Golden with thin white head, slightly cloudy. Grainy flavour with some bitter hops and thin body. Pretty good but could use more body.

Boutip (5357) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2015
Can: Poured a light copper color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light citrusy notes with grainy malt notes. Taste is also dominated by light citrusy notes with grainy malt bill and some light bitter finish. Body is about average with good carbonation. I thought the hops profile fell short for the style.

pictoman (827) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 18, 2015
Poured from the tap. Clear, light medium orangey brown with off white head. Piney, grassy hops with mild citrus hops, subtle caramel malt, a bit watery. Dryish finish.
