1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
A hazed golden ale, over-carbonated and gushing, with a super thick frothy lacing white head. In aroma, sweet grassy malt with light berry notes and soap. In mouth, sweet honey malt with light acidity, unpleasant and showing signs of infection.

Plastic bottle really. Neutral aroma, a tad malty. A little head. Pale blond colour. A malt storey, fine lightness, with a little local H- hop. Carbonation is there and its appropriate. Caramel. A little lace.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2008-05-01. Orange amber body with a small quick off white head. Sweet bready malt aroma, light hops, brief sweet hint of fruit or white grapes? (6+) Similarly sweet malty flavour, just enough bitterness to balance things nicely. (6+) Palate is slightly more full bodied than average, pleasantly so. (3+) On the mild side of the flavour spectrum, but a pretty solid first effort. Nice job. Growler courtesy of MrManning

Growler shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc & tupalev -- courtesy of MrManning. Pours a clear bubbly orange-copper with an average size diminishing white head. Nice, fresh aroma of caramel malt, light floral hops and some sweet biscuit or bread. Flavour of caramel malt, lightly sweet along with some fruit, toffee and a light bitter finish. Medium bodied. Well done, a good debut for this brewery -- I would gladly order this.

Growler. Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc and tupalev, courtesy of MrManning. Pours hazy amber (yep, amber), smallish head. Sweet bready aroma, hint of floral hops and graham crackers. Very fresh-tasting, doughy sweet caramel malt, mildly roasty, quick sweet finish. Average chewy body; refreshing, quite sessionable --- not really a "blonde"
