2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slightly golden yellow, small white head. Grainy with muted hops in the aroma. Flavour is grainy, some barely there hop bitterness. Quaffable stop up from the mainstream but not too challenging. Average palate.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Highly carbonated ale, gold in its presence with fine creamy head on top. Rather sweet , light malt with thin hop character . Subdued bitterness , lacking refreshing qualities . Medium to light body . Bland.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2006 Draught. At Cíest What, shared with blankboy and tupalev. Poured pale clear amber with an average fairly lasting head. Sugary aroma of candy malt and metallic grainy hops. Taste is harshly sweet, bitter without any real hop character, really weak-ass with some sugary fake fruit on warming. Flat, watery, harsh and syrupy - a nasty excuse for a pale ale, even for mainstream Canada.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draught at Cíest What, shared with HogTownHarry & tupalev. Pours a clear bubbly golden-orange with an average size white head. Mediocre aroma of grain, fruit, hops and some malt. Flavour, oh thatís no Pale Ale, thatís more of a generic sweet crappy Lager with a slightly metallic aftertaste. Bleargh. These guys are capable of so much more than this. Pitiful.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
341ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a 2 finger white head that settles quickly leaving only a few spots of lacing. Aroma is mild toasted malts and grassy hops. Taste is light toasty malt sweetness with a moderate grassy hop bitterness. Light body and moderate carbonation. A decent pale ale, but nothing special.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fruit nose, with some malt and hops, deep amber, pours a tiny white head. Mild taste of candied malt, some hops there too. Light bodied, balanced, a bit sweet. Fair. I really wish I could say who shared this.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Draught at Cíest What with hogtown harry and blankboy. Light orange, small bubbly head. Hardly any aroma, cold or as it warmed, maybe some grainy notes, but thatís it - certainly no hops. Citrus malt taste, syrupy yet thin. Lingering grain and corn. There is absolutely nothing to like in this beer - what a poor excuse from a formerly decent brewer. I canít wait to try the red!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at The Academy of Spherical Arts. Light, bright golden with a small white head. Fairly non-descript but not upleasant aroma of sweet malt and mild hops. Similar flavour - malt, hops, clean and boring. I had no problem drinking a pint of it, but by the time I got home (10 minute walk), Iíd forgotten pretty much everything about it.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
bottle at the inlaws, they pick this up for me cause they know i dont like bud light. A nice thought on their part, but meh, this is pretty boring, VERY slight hops in the nose, typical grainy macro aroma. Some light malt in the flavour, quite bland, meh, run of the mill canadian macro pale ale, pretty mediocre really.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
orange-golden body with a rather small bready head. Grass and toasted malt aroma with just the faintest hint of hops. A very boring example of the style, it probably shouldnít even be considered an APA. Cookie malt flavour and very subtle hopping. Meh.
