Biscuty, slightly spicy with a sour finish. The body is the best thing about this beer. Not much of an aroma, some toasty malt/hops in there..

Pours an amber colour with no head. Sweet hopped malt aroma. Body is alot lighter than I thought it would be. Taste also light with some sweet caramel malt and some hops. A little too watery but still a decent beer

341ml brown bottle. Poured amber, scarce thin white head. Sweetish aroma with honey and orange notes. Malty body, gently hopped. Earthy finish with some bitterness.

shintriad (700) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2006 Light auburn. Watery appearance and the head comes and goes. Smells like a cross between a wiezen and a trappist, heavy on bubblegum and banana, some sweet caramel. Starts a bit tart and sweet and finishes with distinct cantaloupe notes, otherwise dry, bland, minerally. Thin on flavour overall, unfortunately, but the melon flavour gives it an appealing distinction. Otherwise, a decent but unfinished beer.

Amber, off-white head. Aroma is hoppy. Flavour is hoppy though sweet malts are quite present. A little weak. Alright. Bottle.

MrManning (2003) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 16, 2004
Dark amber body with reddish hues. Creamy looking beige head. Aroma is sweet, hoppy, with some bitterness present. Malty sweetness with hints of caramel. A nice balance of hops too. Creamy mouthfeel with nice aftertaste. A nice treat!

, some bitter aftertaste. Not so pale, maybe name owes itself to cross-style with the cream, which is sugar biscuit in the dough, Bitter over sweet.

UPDATED: JUL 3, 2004 Tasted in Ottawa from the LCBO. Tasted in english pint. Aroma is hoppy but sweet. Somewhat malty and spicy. Appearance is a rusty orange colour with a thin white head. Taste is fairly well balanced with equal hints of matly sweetness and hoppy spice finish.
