On tap at Beercraft. Pretty amber for a "golden ale," off white head. Faint aroma, crystal malt, slight red fruit, toasted bread. Flavor combines a light milky fruitiness with crystal malt iced tea notes. Not feeling it.

mcberko (6453) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2013
On tap at Redwood Curtain Brewing, pours a hazy golden orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out crisp crackery malt, lightly fruity notes, and subtle English hops. Flavour brings out caramel, toasted malt, English yeast, and some slight red fruitiness. Quite full-flavoured, with a medium viscosity. Well-balanced and drinkable. Solid stuff.

Had this on tap at a festival. The beers were six dollars per cup and this was the only one that was somewhat worth the outrageous price. I found it enjoyable, but the flavors were a little bold and jumbled for my taste. Then again, I’m not usually the biggest fan of anything that starts with I and ends with A.
