Bottled. Clear pale amber. Light aroma of paper and grass. Sweetish and lightly appley with clean mouthfeel. Medium bitterness. Subtle but without finesse.

fiulijn (15227) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 7, 2008
Draught at Vancouver airport lounge
Amber color. It has a nice hoppy aroma, but the flavor is more common. Still, one of the few interesting beers at airport lounges.

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2004
Pale amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma is predominantly malty, slightly soapy smelling with a hint of spicy hoppiness. Flavour is also mostly malt with some faint orange citrus. Very low bitterness. Pretty standard but not bad.

kramer (5094) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2013
Tap, brewery. Pours a clear pale copper body with a small frothy off-white head, nice retention. The nose is floral hops with some dry toasty, biscuity malt. A light touch of caramel. The flavor is dry biscuity malt with some light English hops and a little residual sweetness on the back end. Mouthfeel is a bit clingy with fizzy soft carbonation. Pretty decent stuff, solid for the style.

The Great BrewDad Victoria Pub Crawl 2014 - Golden in color, clear with a thin head. Good pale ale with a nice balance of malts and hops.
