3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I’m evidently against the grain a bit, but I thought this was a really impressive go at what can be a limiting style. Pours light amber, not much head. Aromas - very floral and fruity, slight citrus. Taste is subtle sweetness and gentle bitterness in nice tension. Drinkable, clean.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
when I poured it it smellt like tacos and lemonzest no lie.(a distance away I could smell that)right from glass just smelt soft,light and a soft fruityness. Taste is all soft and light of lemon zest,peach and pear. I also could taste the hops and they smelt that warm smell some hops have. Itès a little more then just average. some sips remind me of an IPA and some seem just like a blonde ale with veary little light fruitness. worth trying cxheers I had the can btw

Not the best beer out there but certainly one that is refreshing enough to merit a second try.

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.
