JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2010
Hazy amber pour. White head. The nose is lightly citrusy with a mix of lemon and orange. Light grapefruit and a soft resinous character. Light bodied with a softly earthy bitterness but it’s quite restrained on the IBU front. Fresh and a little bit grassy. A nice piny nose as it starts to warm up. Lightly resinous even… pretty tasty.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is golden with a fluffy white head and great lacing. Light grapefruit, biscuit, orange, pine, and grass in the aroma. Taste is orange peel, citrus, grapefruit, resin, and bread with a medium bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonation. Not bad.

On Tap at the brewery. Pour is golden in appearance with a white head and good lacing. Grapefruit, citrus, light grass, grain, and corn in the aroma. Taste is somewhat watered down grass, grapefruit, cereal, and biscuit with a medium bitter finish. Light body with high carbonation. Easy to drink, but pretty boring, nothing really off-putting but just kind of bleh.
