1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
500 mL bottle. Smells like popcorn kernels. Tastes like popcorn kernels. Diacetyl is a flaw, people! Why do breweries keep releasing flawed beer? How can they not notice? I don’t get it.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500mL bottle from the LCBO. Pours a pleasant light amber with a large (but disappearing) white head. Aroma is mild fruit and diacetyl. Flavour is light hops, light malt, some diacetyl. Innocuous and would probably make a very nice warm-weather beer if it weren’t for the diacetyl - given the LCBO’s poor beer storage practices, I’m willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. Will try to get another bottle and re-rate.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Kind of a blah colour... Nice creamy mouthfeel. My cousins claim it has a toffee flavor and a sweet aroma that I can’t find in my glass. After some crackers (had had a IIPA before this), the sweetness came out. very nice! Pretty good aroma too... Subtle, low on the hops... Quite light and refreshing. Worth giving a chance.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, brought & shared by Robbie from Kingston. Hazy golden, medium white head. Aroma and palate of ripe pears and soft melon, lightly phenolic. Very nicely fruity, lighter palate without being thin. Nice.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brown 500ml bottle with a best before date on the side of the label, 09 May 2011. Pours a golden colour with a very slight amber hue and a big soapy head that lasts a very long time leaving a little lace. Notes of fresh apples aromas with hints of citrus and malt. Soap-tasting hops with some more apples and a little grain in the aftertaste. Gets pretty murky near the last pour, with lots of tiny sediments floating everywhere (almost looking like mildly unfiltered apple juice). A decent blond ale that is interesting in all aspect.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pour yellow murky with white short lived head with average lacing. Aroma of lemon zest, honey, with light floral and grassy hops. Taste sour and bitter. Lemon off sour with a lingering taste, floral/grassy hops. MF thin medium carbonation. This isn’t very good.

Draught sample in St. Thomas. Pours a golden yellow/ blonde white head, decent lacing. Aroma is of hops. Taste is also of hops and a little grassy. Not bad.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I tried this beer on November 10, 2010 after purchasing from the Queen’s Quay LCBO outlet in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent red-hued golden colour with almost no head. A white ring and heavy effervescence persisted throughout. The aroma was milky sugar, grains, and floral hops. The flavour was grainy malt and some weak hoppy tones. An alright beer, but nothing spectacular.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Pale golden pour. The nose is slightly grainy with loads of green apple. Acetaldehyde, DMS and little but flaws. Wow - this is truly awful.
