COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship golden ale crafted with two-row barley, wheat and German malt makes this beer a real crowd favourite. The combination of English and Oregon hops nicely enhances the natural sweetness of the malt flavour.

Atheist_Peace (947) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 31, 2014
Nearly clear golden pour with a fairly thin head that leaves the thinnest ring of lace after 42 seconds. Smells distinctly like buttered popcorn. In fact, I’m willing to bet this is the most highly diacetyl fuelled beer I’ve ever smelled. It’s really hard to get anything else on the nose at all. Tastes nearly as bad with some apple juice and thin grain. Reasonable palate. Note: This was only canned 17 days ago and cost almost twice as much as any of the brewery’s other beers. I won’t be quick to go back for more.

From bottle, damn thats a big bottle, like half a growler big! Pours a light golden yellow colour, with a neat head. Cant say the colour is too inviting but, hey, it’s billed as a golden ale so I guess I cant complain too much. Aroma is floral, oranges, sweet. Light body, very sessionable. Sublte malt sweetness, caramel leading to butterscotch maybe. Touch of bitterness left behind on the tongue. Easy going and not too challenging.

AlainG (1213) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 5, 2012
Bière à la robe blonde où une mousse timide y flotte sans laisser paraître son col, mais une dentelle est visible et belle à voir. Les odeurs sont bucoliques, comme si on se trouvait dans un champs en plein été, bondé d’herbes folles. Le goût n’est pas à la hauteur, c’est à mi-chemin entre être fade et goûteux. Un arrière-goût épicé tape du doigt. (292-040812)

HeistAlmighty (1127) - Saint John, New Brunswick, CANADA - JUL 11, 2012
500ml bottle. Nice hazy, brassy colour with moderate white head. Some lacing. Taste and smell are well balanced malt, English style hops and some grain. Body was a little watery or oily, kind of heavy without being thick. Overall, I was suprised to get such a full flavour out of a 4.5% brew.

DuffMan (6739) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 3, 2011
Bottle. Clear light golden, compact white head. Perfumey fruity hop aroma, gentle and fresh. Light fruity palate, clean grainy base, low bitterness. Simple but satisfying, nice for the patio.

Grwido (57) - Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 26, 2011
Golden beer with a white head. Grassy malty aroma. Taste is sweet, with butterscotch and caramel. Pretty good beer.

Boutip (4726) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 6, 2010
Bottle: Poured a light color amber with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of weird grainy taste with some gross sweetness. Taste is also off with gross butterscotch notes and some dry hops which don’t mix really well. Body is about average with oily texture and medium carbonation. The butterscotch notes are really gross and I had to drain pour this one.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2009
A golden ale with a thin white head. A nice caramelly malt with light butterscotch notes. In mouth, a nice biscuitty malt with some good grainy qualities, light British hops, a bit of an oily mouthfeel. Lighter bodied. On tap at brewpub, Oct. 10 2009.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2009
Aroma is lightly hoppy. A bit of soft citrus over the pale malt sweetness. It’s got a lovely balance. Low to moderate bitterness with a lingering citrus note over the bready malt sweetness. Another nice, sessionable ale.

GreenWall (54) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUL 16, 2009
Pours straw-golden with a creamy head diminishing to a film, a ring of bubbles lacing the glass nicely. This is a pretty beer. Layered clean malts with a hint of caramel make up the aroma, accented by some light herbal hops. Full, malty and grainy flavours dominate in the mouth, well supported by a very smooth but firm bitterness and ending in a subtle sweet malty note. Low acidity, no astringency at all, just clean cascading malt flavours. An approachable beer brewed with real finesse.
