Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2008
Very grassy aroma and a lovely golden colour. Not all that bitter, but a nice mix of hops and malt. A touch sweet, but not overpowering. Very easy to drink.

shoestring (267) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2007
UPDATED: APR 30, 2007 Bright orange, with initial large foamy head. This dissipates to leave thin, lasting coating on beer. Maltyness is there amongst the hops. Caramel comes through a wee bit for me. Lingering metallicy/sulphur palate lingers, with a slight zestiness of citrus coming back into the mouth once swallowed.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2008
Bottle from Asda. Aroma is pale ale malt, grassy small citrus note and floural honey. Taste is similar, on the sweeter side of balanced but thin enough to be quite drinkable. The hops leave a strange grainy chalky character on the tougne. Intresting wee beer.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2008
Aroma is a fruity malt with some leafy hops, amber, pours a slim off-white head. Taste is a fine malt, nice woodiness too, hops mingle to a pleasant bitterness. Light bodied, balanced, nice candied after taste. Quite good!

GregClow (2893) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2008
Bottle (clear, ugh!) from the LCBO. Bright golden with a medium white head. Aroma has a kmild skunkiness to start, but once it airs out a bit, there are some pleasant floral notes, along with honey and a slightly woody character. Body is light and crisp, and the flavour has the floral and honey notes promised by the aroma, along with a squeeze of citrus towards the finish. Not bad, a nice summer ale, but would probably be better/fresher tasting if available in a brown bottle.

TaktikMTL (5793) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2010
Bouteille claire de 500 ml achetée chez LCBO (Ottawa, ONT). Arôme: Légère odeur de céréales et de miel. Apparence: La couleur est dorée avec une très faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Léger goût d’houblons et de céréales. Courte durée de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps et la texture sont mince. Faible effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement houblonné. (Rating #2828)

mojoharper (31) - SOUTH AFRICA - DEC 4, 2010
Good golden color, and a very malty, hoppy nose that reminds of caramel. Taste is slight lemon, citrus malt, with a crisp, dry finish. More of a refreshment, hot-day ale. Can be habit forming!
