750. Thanks T! Pours a cloudy pale toffeeish gold with a towering sudsy, fizzy platinum blond head. Bright sweet nose, candi sugar, powdered sugar, green apple. Creamy, fizzy medium body. A bit cloying, heavy sugars, light apple in the background, not much acidic balance. Long acetic sweet finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet, vanilla, ladyfinger cake aroma. Wine bottle-style 750 mL, OK label. Honey gold, misty beer, big fluffy eggshell head. Respectable balance - ABV apparent, but well masked. Medium body, slightly brothy, effervescent and warming. Lightly sweet,lightly bittered, a bit biscuity, very lightly spicy. I enjoyed this. On sale, ABC Bull Run.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750 mL bottle. Poured clear, bright golden with a sticky white head. The aroma picked up sweet banana and vanilla with accents of cloves and nutmeg.. peppery alcohol warmth rose as it warmed. The flavor found white pepper and cloves laced throughout.. sweet banana, vanilla, and a kiss of honey supported.. tangy, sugary, and warm on the long finish. Medium-plus bodied with heavy, creamy carbonation.. I enjoyed the mouthfeel.. overall a solid, but not spectacular brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 750ml bottle. This is burnt sugars, caramel, toffee, sweet and fruity. This is not terrible, but not very exciting. Sweet and syrupy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared 750 ml. bottle poured to snifters showing a slightly hazed, light, orangy gold color, a nice layer of soft white froth, and web-like lacing. The nose was estery as lemon & apple, sweet, with hints of yeast & spice. Lively effervescence and a slightly earthy hop bitterness helped maximize these notes, and the general flavor impression. Fairly hidden, but well integrated alcohol.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy, golden-orange with a tall, frothy, white head the dissipates quickly. Aromas of sweet bread, apricot, and maybe a hint of orange. Taste is moderately sweet with flavors of orange and candied lemon. Has a medium body with a thick texture. Carbonation is lively, but not overly so. Finish is moderate with a touch of sourness as the flavors wane. Overall, a really nice beer. Although, I do find it a little bit "sticky" on the palate.

2013-07-01. Golden orange body, massive foamy beige head. Smooth average plus body. Sweetish flavour, pale malt throughout has biscuity bready accents. Pleasant aroma, sweet bready pale malt, mild fruit, very light alcohol. Fairly simple but enjoyable take on the style. Bottle from the LCBO, Toronto
