Tessic (1036) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 9, 2004
Pours a dark copper colour with a white head that doesn't last long. SCents include a moderate doughy / earth aroma with sugary scents. Initial sip offered a toasted grass flavour with more doughy notes. Palate was a little bread / wheat like with a smooth finish.

CapFlu (5101) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 24, 2003
(Draught) At the Woolwich & Arms, Guelph. Thin, white head and a copper body. Slight malt aroma with cascade hops? Bitter front followed by a sweet, creamy, malt mid-palate. Next to no carbonation. Very good.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2003
Clear copper. Tan head. Sweet aroma of caramel, honey, and orange. Medium body, some resin. Malty (caramel) & fruity (orange) flavour. Clean, dry, lightly hopped finish.

Radek Kliber (7165) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - AUG 17, 2003
Light amber, white head. Light grassy aroma. Too sweet to be real P.A, but drinkable nether less.

jercraigs (9836) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 17, 2007 Sept 2007. Bottle. Golden amber body with a smallish white head. Lightly hoppy aroma. Grassy, lightly fruity. Similar flavour, mildly hopped, grassy, lightly grainy. Average palate. Touch dull. 5-6/3/5-6/3/12 - 2.8

TFOB 2003. They are calling it Special Pale Ale now. Amber colour, slight head. More hops in the aroma than the flavour. Enjoyable but doesn’t make me crave another. 5/3/5/3/12 - 2.8

GregClow (3186) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2005 Re-rate: I think I got a pint that was slightly off the first time I rated this, ’cause I had a bottle today and found it much more enjoyable. The hoppiness in particular was a lot more pronounced than before. I’ll have to give it one more try, but for now, it’s up from a 2.6 to a 3.2 Original rating: Reddish-brown colour with a small head. Enough hoppiness in the aroma to make me expect this to be a decent pale ale, but the flavour is a real let-down - just a hint of bitterness in the finish, and otherwise pretty non-descript.

Strange Brew (157) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 3, 2003
A hint of hops but not much, with some bitterness thrown in. It's light and smooth, so it's not a bad drink, but not much in the way of its own character.

Cartoonkhaki (1252) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2003
Malty nose. I was surprised to find that the head disappeared so quick. very clean. Slighty bitter. but still smooth.

Crit (3820) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 9, 2003
Sparkling light amber,fast fading beige head.Mild malt nose. Well balanced flavor but underhopped for the style.

Very bland and boring. Not much in the flavour category. Not very creamy.
