Minimal malty scent. Cloudy copper appearance. Can’t taste and discernible flavours. Very light body with minimal fizz. Might be good if one wants to drink a lot of beer very quickly

Travlr (11843) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Sample at Atlantic Beer Festival Moncton. Crystal clear golden amber color, tiny white edge head. Aroma of light smoke and black pepper. Taste is bittersweet caramel.

Draft - Light grains, caramel and earthy hops. Clear copper with a decent beige head. Toffee and earthy hops. Typical and nice English style.

lesifflebiere (1271) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 17, 2014
Franchement orangée, limpide et mince, effluves de fruits jaunes, un peu d’ananas. En bouche, bouillon légèrement houblonné, un peu fruité aussi, avec une trame légèment aqueuse qui lui enlève du tonus. Une boisson désaltérante, un peu facile à oublier cependant, mais qui, par son absence de défauts importants, réussit sa mission "pale ale". À défaut d’être "special".

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Bouteille de 341 ml achetée au Beer Store de Cornwall. Dégustée le 8 juillet 2005. Bière blonde dorée limpide. Mousse très peu, col mince et éphémère. Très peu effervescente, bulles fines. Odeur de caramel, de cognac. Très douce, un peu sucrée, peu amère. Manque de caractère.

ILduce (205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2014
Can in Welly tasters 4pack LCBO: Amber with substantial head and carb. Nose is subdued malt with some straw and toast. Taste is same with noticable hop absence. Creamy and balanced with a short rounded end. High drinkability, but nothing special, as it were.

jkwood04 (3947) - Connecticut, USA - FEB 3, 2014
473ml can in a tulip. Pours amber with a lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of pale and cereal malts, light metallic notes, and light, faded hops. Flavor the same. Average to light texture. Not the best beer; might be an old can, but I still doubt that it’s that great.

RhetoricalAns (253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2013
Pours amber, thin white head. Mild grain aroma. Somewhat mild taste and bitterness. Not bad.

yrstruly (333) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2013
This ubiquitous Guelph brew pours light amber with a minimal white head. The aroma is of toast, light malt, slight esters, and English hops. Taste is medium-sweet, with a medium-light body, cleaning up with a light touch of English hops. Not super exciting, but it’s got balance and drinkability on it’s side.

473 mL can. Pours amber with a touch of white head. Aroma is mostly biscuit like malt with a hint of almondy diacetyl and a slight hop spice. Pretty uneventful. Thin and moderately carbonated. Kind of missed the mark for me.
