Draught at the beer bistro. Copper amber with little head, reddish in color. Dry malty flavor with a crisp medium body. Can really smell the sweet crystal malts. Some lacing, great for the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
341 ml bottle. Orange amber colour with a mostly lasting frothy and rocky off-white head. Honey, lightly grainy, light bread, and velvety caramel aroma. Bready, orange, and lightly grainy flavours with a sweetish, lightly acidic, and lightly spicy finish, plus a very late nutty bitterness. Light bodied but refreshing mouthfeel. Not bad at all.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2009 [202-20070206] Tap @ C’est What (Toronto, ON). Medium yeast in aroma. Rich red amber body with small bubbles along the outer rim and a medium-big creamy off-white head. Flavour continues grainy yeast bread and shows some alcohol content. Medium body, gravelly feel. Good togetherness, good to repeat (great pairing with fries). Ɩ/4/6/3/13) 3.2
[2477B-20090829] Bottle sample. Potato chip salty grains and pepper aroma. Slightly hazy, orange amber body with a quick foamy off-white head. More generic grains and watery malt flavour. Watery medium body. Fair. Ɩ/3/6/3/13) 3.1

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
341ml bottle - pours a deep golden, very dark actually, and maybe a bit closer to auburn than gold. Aroma is quite nice, with lots of malt and a bit of hoppiness in the background. Flavour is very crisp, with a nice sharp Saaz bite, a bit of sweet malt in the middle before a mild bitterness come forward in the finish. Otherwise, the mouthfeel is very thin, which is unfortunate because with a bit more body this would be greatly improved. It’s very drinkable...it goes down like water. Very clean, with no trace of adjunct or anything negative, and you can tell there in quality in here, but it’s just not very interesting and much too thin. Still, decent, just not something I’d likely pick up again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2008 341 ml bottle - pours a clear amber with a foamy off-white head. Aroma of sweet grainy caramel malts.....very sweet actually. Some light herbal hops in there too. Layers of quality malt with some Saaz hop character and medium carbonation are all present. Really well balanced. Very smooth in the mouth. Refreshing and supremely drinkable - I could go through a 6 of these on a summer night no problem. A great session brew - nice to have an easy drinking lower alcohol beer that is a bit beefier than your generic pale lager. Good stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ beerbistro: THIS is made by Cool? The same purveyors of such swill as Millennium Buzz? Colour me shocked. Poured a nice amber-orange with a generous foam head. Aroma is sweet and hoppy, a light complexity that made it difficult to pick out all that’s happening. Flavour is far superior to anything I’ve had from this brewer with an excellent balance of sweet malts and wonderful, bitter hops. Completely surprised by this one, thumbs up.
