Trev (1929) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 13, 2006
Bottle: Pours a dark gold with a med. frothy white head. Aroma is honey-ish malt sweetness. Too faint slightly fruity hop. Flavour is quite malty, tin tasting bitterness. Not one of my preferred regional pales.

GiBrew (171) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAY 3, 2006
Can. Golden orange with a very small frothy white head. Weak malt aroma, some caramel but not much else. Flavours are OK: Caramel, some fruitiness and a bit of metallic after taste. Probably would be better on tap.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 9, 2006
On tap at the Palace Hotel bar. Amber with an off-white head. Aroma of mild citrus and floral hops. Flavor is a fairly standard pale ale with noticeable calcium sulfate. OK beer.

omhper (19337) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2006
Bottled. Clear pale amber. Light aroma of paper and grass. Sweetish and lightly appley with clean mouthfeel. Medium bitterness. Subtle but without finesse.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2006
Bottle @ OMH-tasting
Malty aroma with lots of Münchener malts. Watery palate and missing in bitterness. Short aftertaste. Uninteresting.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2005
Mildly fruity, sweet aroma with some touches of herbal hops apparent. Clear deep golden body is topped by a generous white head that recedes slowly to a lasting fine bubbled cover with excellent lacing. Mild caramel malt light fruitiness with herbal hops apparent and fair, balancing bitterness. Medium light body is dry and well attenuated with crisp carbonation that stimulates the tongue and cheeks. Although flavour and aroma are both quite innocuous this is a well crafted, if simple beer. Enjoyed on tap in the Maple Leaf Lounge at Vancouver Airport.

Hooker (467) - Coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 4, 2005
Clear amber colour with thin tan head. Mild malt nose with slight yeast notes. Dry malt taste with lingering mild malt finish.
