COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The lighter beer of our two offerings, this ale was designed to be an almost "non-ale". It is golden in colour, brilliantly clear, and clean across the palate. The mix of 4 malts still provides subtle character in the body, and the addition of malted wheat provides a slight, but characteristic citrusy finish. Hopped with noble Saaz and Golding, the bitter is barely perceptible, but mild hop flavours linger in the after-taste; the dry, clean finish provides a refreshing perk at the back of the palate. The full package mimics the classic milds of the British Isles, with a bit of Yukon spirit, just to make sure you remember what part of the world you're in!

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2016
Bouteille. Nez malté de miel et de beurre de caramel doux avec des notes d’agrumes et de houblon très fin. Mince en bouche. Goût légèrement fruité (agrumes, pêche) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un goût de caramel très doux, légèrement mielleux puis finalement une légère amertume de houblon herbeux se rajoute. Arrière-goût court et sec très légèrement amère de houblon. [notes 2005]

Hammy78 (959) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2015
Bottle from the Barton LCBO. Pours a golden copper, fluffy white head, that dies down to a very thin film, some small island spots. Nose is cereal like. Tastes much the way it smells, grainy, a touch bitter. Not bad, just nothing special.

lesifflebiere (1645) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 23, 2015
Désignée comme étant une English Pale Ale, cette bière blonde foncée à la mousse rare comme les feuillus au Yukon sent le maïs et les pommes. Les saveurs sont franchement concentrées sur les malts, sucrés et ronds, avec des houblons cachés derrière des saveurs vaguement mielleuses, céréalées et fruitées. Passablement décevante, elle ne compétitionne même pas si bien avec les industrielles de la même catégorie.

czar (7525) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2015
pours unclear bright gold with a disappearing white head, no lacing. lager toastiness, cheap caramel stench commonly found in strong macro lagers, faint fruitiness - white grape juice from concentrate and sweet potatoes, grassy and spicy, pekoe orange tea, salada-like *TM, fusel traces, clean yeast. light to low carbonation - lacking, light body - oily; balanced grassy-spicy finish. blah.
