Superb golden-copper beer with a dense and stable head. Great fruity/malty aroma with some hints of bread. Robust, dashing and definitely bitter hopsy/floral flavor that ends in a moderately bitter final. Even at 3,5/5, that beer is quite underrated. For about 1,60 CAD, this is probably the best deal you can get among pale ales.

I love this beer. It has been my everyday "session" beer for years and I kind of forgot that I hadn't rated it since joining this great community. Great orangey copper colour with thin head but lots of lacing. Fresh floral aromas supplemented beautifully by lots of hops. Smooth sweet slightly bitter taste leads to a lingering mildly bitter finish. Nice.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2004 This beer is like candy. The first few drops really taste like caramel... but then the real fiesta starts as the after taste hits like a Todd Bertuzzi going on rampage! Rich, warming presence, this is a beautiful example of a pale ale, one that many should take as an model.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, clean looking red amber color, with a good, sudsy white head and fair lacing. Smells fresh and hoppy, with some light malts and floral-honey sweet aromas. More bitterness than sweetness in the taste I found, with a strong bitter finish. Pretty full in the mouth, lightly astringent. Simple enough and refreshing.

Thanks to Rastacouere for sending this to me! Pours a reddened orange with a tall foamy white head. Nose is citric hops and fruit. The taste is essentially a pale ale mixed with a European lager or pilsener. Light hop character along with some grassy notes and some citrus fruit hints. Very drinkable beer. Some light lingering bitterness during the finish, but very smooth overall. Good beer!

UPDATED: MAY 2, 2004 Yellow-orange coloured beer with a thin white head. Aroma is citrus and spicy hops, with a nice caramel malt. Background. Starts off with a nice shot of malty sweetness, and is followed by some spice (black pepper) and citrus. Then the bitterness kicks in leaving a long finish. Very tasty. Well done.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear copper pour with a large frothy cream colored head. (Bottle at Peel Pub). Aroma is citrusy hops. Smooth and moderately hoppy with pine flavors present also. Decent bitter finish although astringent. This is a weird combination of a weak pale ale and a blond ale. Not the best beer I had on my Brother and My annual holiday trip to Montreal.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a copper with a 1.5 cm slightly off-white head. Aroma is citrus/orange with maybe a little hops in there. Start is an odd sour taste, middle is very hoppy, only to end in a very unpleasant bitterness. Mouth feel is awkward. Not well balanced at all.
