3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Pale amber with goldish tint. Caramel and mild spice aroma (think salt and pepper), a bit doughy. Mid-range bitterness with sweet, fruity/floral finish. Light-medium body, slightly creamy, average carbonation. Not long ago this was the only local alternative to the big brewers you would find on tap at most Victoria pubs. Smooth and sessionable, I admit I may have given this bonus points out of sheer nostalgia.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap. Pours amber with a diminishing white head and decent retention. Aroma is caramel, light hops. Thereís a ton of caramel flavour in the body which lingers through to the finish, with some other bready/biscuity flavours. A little bit of hop presence to cut the sweetness. Quite boring and unimpressive.

Iíd love to give this points for hometown pride, but canít. I donít like this. The commercial description claims itís bronze and yep that was the strongest flavour for me -- like licking bronze. This is too weak in flavour and aroma otherwise, surprised itís 5%.

Poured a copper color with white head settling to spots of lacing. Aroma of caramel malts and some hops. Taste is malty sweet with a touch of hoppy bitterness in the end. A decent pale ale.

Weak aroma of spicy caramel and detectable hops. Clear red-copper. Flavor is quite bland with only a touch of caramel and a faint fruity finish. Balance towards bitter. Light body, medium carbonation, slightly tangy, bitter finish.

Tastes good and is drinkable. I liked it.
