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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2014 A luxurious head of foam and thick lacing cover smooth caramel in delicate earthy, citrusy hop bitterness…Lemony tea leaves and oily biscuits… Subtle and balanced, bitter enough to be quenching…

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2007 Bottle @ Victory Cafe. Dark amber body with a moderate creamy off white head (3+). Fruity aroma with modest hops and surprisingly noticeable alcohol, much more than it should have for such a low abv brew. Similarly fruity flavour is roughly diminished by a strong alcohol presence that is not particularly well integrated into the rest of the flavour. Average palate. Not a great example of this beer. Disappointing. 6/3/5/3/10 - 2.7
<P>July 2003. Had mixed experiences with this. One tasty too warm and too fruity, one perfection of a pale ale at St. Lawrence beer festival, and one unbalanced hop profile on tap. 4/3/5/3/12 - 2.7

Thanks to Hogtown Harry for this one. The pour is dark straw with a 2-finger, off-white head. The aroma is caramel malty, with some honey, apricot, and pale malty honey. The taste was pale malty, with some crisp honey notes coupled with mild hops.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at Nyk’s Bistro Pub, Montréal, QC.
Clear amber colour with small to average sized white head.
Caramel malt and sugary candy sweetness in aroma.
Mild sugary sweet and woody malty flavour. Drinkable but boring. No hops to speak of.

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.

Brilliant orange-amber with a moderate head. Fresh apricot fruit aroma with some green leafy element too. Initially modestly sweet and lightly fruity, but with a woody dry note in the finish. Surprisingly refreshing despite its complexity and very approachable. Fantastic!

341mL bottle, pours clear copper with a huge white head. Aroma of subtle hops and malts, with pine in there. Smooth and refreshing palate - flavour of mild hops, spices and caramel. Nice pale ale.
