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.

Oakes (12429) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2008
Hazy golden-straw colour. Thin head. Very fresh pale malt with sublime lemony, almost gingery hops. Herbal, lemongrass hops and fresh-cracked pale malt on the palate with slightly toasty and caramelly earthy malts. Clean, fresh as the sea...just beautifully crafted.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2008
Clear pure bright gold with off-white head. Fresh sweet wort, lovely grain dancing, then jumping out of the glass. sweet entry, solid grainy body is substantial, thick and full but simple and healthy and good. Clean bright hop finish. Another gorgeous one, this brewery really knows what it’s doing.

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.

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.

HeistAlmighty (1126) - 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.

jercraigs (7790) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 24, 2008
2008-11-01. Crisp clear yellow body with a good sized white head. Mild aroma, fruity, light florals. (6+) Flavour is similar, sweet malt, fruit, light citrus notes in the finish, brief touch of lime acidity like a sauvignon blanc? Light bitterness. Smooth average palate. <i>On tap at Port Pub</i>

Gethinbeer (2149) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - JAN 26, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2011 Pint in Port Williams. I found the beer had a weak aroma, sweet with some honey. texture was a little syrupy. Again just like the aroma the flavour had hints of honey and malt. Seems a well balanced ale, combining the bitterness and sweetness well. Very refreshing. Great beer sat out on the patio looking down the river in the summer.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 9, 2009
On tap at the Port Pub, sampled 10/4/08. Golden yellow colour with a fully diminishing fizzy white head. Floral, light citrus and grainy aroma. Grainy and toasty malts with a moderate floral and citrus bitter finish. Medium bodied, firm mouthfeel. Like the Moondance Organic Lager, not a world beater, but way above and beyond your standard brewpub pale ale.

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.

[1834-20081101] Tap. Mildly hoppy strawberry fruit aroma. Clear, pale orange yellow body with a quick bubbly white head. Fruity strawberry jam flavour has notes of pear juice. Medium body. Nice but was expecting something hoppier.
