3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Crystal clear amber ale with a small, creamy, white head.
The aroma is of butterscotch, floral and citrusy hops.
The flavor is well-bittered, nicely balanced and matches the aroma. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel, fizzy carbonation and a short, crisp, clean finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Slightly hazy, amber coloured, smaller, absolutely stable head, that sticks to the glass; enormous aromatic hoppy and fruity nose, some malt in the background; stronger bitter-sweet flavour; peppery hoppy, resinous finish, well balanced by some malt, lingering bitter aftertaste. Superb stuff, joss !

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle acquired in trade with boutip (thanks!). Poured a medium and slightly hazy amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, citrus, and somewhat fruity. Tastes of citrus, flowers and fruity. I found the tastes to be on the watery side with a thin body. Ligthtly sweet and very lightly bitter.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
341ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
5 Initially quite lagery aroma when cold. As it warms, it becomes sweeter and spicier, maybe cookies. A touch of alcohol.
3 Rich orange, lots of lacing from teh small off-white head.
5 Pretty dull taste, sweet malts, I guess. I guess a it yeasty and some banana. Some earthiness, mushrooms, and even alcohol.
3 Smooth palate, crisp carbonation. Just feels so dead. No depth. Finish is earthy and with burnt plastic astringent bitterness
11 5% sweet beers should not smell and taste of alcohol. Simply adequate, otherwise.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Carbonation and hop works to make it quite drinkable and a champion Canadian beer. This brewery doesn’t have an inferior product. Excellent balance, above-average smell in head that dissipitates. Can drink this for a long time. Sweet start, excellent clean aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a transparent orange amber with a wispy-lacing frothy white head. Aroma of fairly fresh citrusy hops with some mild pale malty sweetness. Starts semi-sweet with a decent earthy bittering hop balance before a drier finish. Pretty drinkable and true to style.
