fiulijn (19347) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 14, 2012
Draught at the brewpub
Pale blond color, hazy; creamy head. Mild aroma of crispy malt and hop. The flavor of crispy malt is very good in the front, with citrusy, lemony hops and a light grassy touch; unfortunately the bitterness is too high in the end, and covers the malt. Pleasant, but unrefined.

manuchampions (1244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 17, 2011
Sampled at Hopapalooza II. Pours a light golden with thin off white head. Fairly straight ahead grassy hop aroma with mild malt. Taste is much the same, sufficient bitterness for the style but not anything unexpected. Finish is crisp and balanced. A really nicely made beer that just comes across as bland...but I’m sampling it on a night of very big hoppy beers so...it deserves recognition based on that alone.

Gravelle (104) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 19, 2009
Amber with a light cloud cover, min. white head that holds on for dear life. Lacey bits. HA! Decent body. Great maltiness profile with pleasant hop finish.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - DEC 27, 2007
Color of Rapunzel’s hair--slightly hazy golden leaving ample fronds of lacing on the glass.Crystal clear hop flavors with whispers of licorice in the aftertaste. Pure aromas reminiscent of a Bavarian lager. One I could drink all night.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2007
Golden body with a small white head. Aroma is light hops and grassy. Semi-sweat at the front with a grainy presence. Dries out at the end but the hops are just not adding enough flavour.

LordUppity (26) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2006
On tap at Steamworks. Deep copper in appearance. Fluffy head which leaves nice lacing, leading to a strong appearance factor. Hoppy and bitter with a rough, dry finish. Does not have that smooth, crisp taste that makes you want to drink more in succession.
