Good everyday beer. Coppery in color, slightly cloudy. Drinks crisply with just a touch of hoppy fruitiness. How come this "Canadian" ale is so much better than the crap they send over the border?

Amber, but a bit cloudy. Strong Hop aroma with a similar taste that also had a hint of fruitiness. Had a slight malt finish. Enjoyable.

Draught, @ Federal Jack’s, Kennebunk, Maine.</br> Amber with a slight lacy head. Big green hoppy aroma. Very nice indeed. Nice finish and much better then the last.

Hoppy cherry nose. Amber color, lively carbonation. Nice fruity hoppy taste, refreshes. Light all in all.

Actually, a really nice looking blond with a good light copper color and large, creamy slightly off white head. The aroma is very much lacking in depth and potency, however. Flavor is very creamy with a good malt accent, but otherwise unremarkable. Overall, not a horrible brew, but certainly not one I'll seek out in the future.

Again, this stuff runs right along side Sea Dog for all you Mainards out there. Its a substitute for Molson Export except if feel much more attached to it since I'm a fellow US citizen. This guy is a keeper. Try it.

Wierd, almost chemical aroma. Big fluffy head. Color is avery pale brown. Light citrus notes in the finish. Better than average but not good.

Golden color. Slightly hoppy aroma.. more reminiscent of a freshly mowed lawn. Slightly hoppy but weak bodied, watery. Not particularly good.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 4, 2004 Lightly hazy, golden ale with a small, fizzy, white head.
The nose is of honey, floral notes, mild butterscotch and peach.
The flavor produces notes of straw, bitter, herbal hops and mango. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Lengthy, dry finish.

Hops are there in aroma but flatten into a dusty herbal, parsley flavor. I think this is lots more robust than the typical micro but the body is on par. Light medium effervescence, not much body texture -- not a whole lot there.
