COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly known as Sparkling Ale (6/05)
A golden export-style ale made from only malt and hops, no fillers or adjuncts. A brillant golden colour gives a “sparkling” appearance as the gas escapes from the glass. The natural sweetness of the malt is perfectly balanced by the bitterness derived from the hops. This beer represents the way blonde ales were made 100 years ago.

GregClow (3403) - Toronto, Ontario, - JUN 16, 2003
Light yellow-orange colour. Aroma is very fresh with grassy & fruity notes. Light malt flavour with mild hops to balance. Mouthfeel is very crisp and quenching. It's good, but not great. Their Tankhouse Pale completely kicks this beer's ass.

Raistlin (570) - London, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2018
Pours clear yellow-gold colour with a thin white head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of grainy malt and mild hops. Light body with flavours of bready malt, grain and subtle hops. The finish is short and malty.

Ferris (18486) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 27, 2017
Draft - Very Light Pale malts. Clear pale gold with a decent white head. Sweet almost lime notes with some bready notes. Very sweet.

Tranquillity (2718) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2017
Bottled. Half-hazy yellow body, small white head. The aroma has yeast, the taste is like a pils, with citrus.

Bottle, This is a really funny one, great beer out of the bottle but terrible from the tap! I don’t understand it but everyone I know says the same thing. Steer clear of the draft here.

ranthero (68) - BRAZIL - OCT 8, 2016
Cerveja clara e com espuma de pouca formação. Aroma pouco marcante e uma cerveja bastante suave. Esperava algo mais elaborado.

deyholla (13049) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 4, 2016
Sampled from the tap at the Pearson location. Pours a clear yellow with a white head that dissipates completely. Aroma has lots of straw with hints of corn and grains underlying. Flavor has lots of straw and hay with not much else.

3.1
AleRider78 (1758) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2016
Has a thin coat of white foamy head. Has a yellow/orangey colour. Medium carbonation and has good lacing. Aromas are mostly of weak hops and malts, very light. Flavours are quite citrus like, lighter type malts. Pretty smooth and tingly mouthfeel. Easy drinking, much better on tap than in bottle. Hops and malts are well balanced. Not too bad, nice session beer

DrNosha (3135) - Wuerttemberg, Germany, GERMANY - APR 6, 2016
341ml Flasche. Schöne gelbe Farbe, kaum Schaum. Getreide und Maisduft. Sanft herber Geschmack.

sulawang (1233) - - MAR 5, 2016
Visual: (seasonal sampler 6-pack). Pours clear golden without much head, half ringed retention, slow steady singular streams. Nose: liquid sweet barley malt. (lvl-4)-pungency Attack: crisp, subtle CO2 fizzy Mid-palate: barley grain (lvl-4-sweetness), corn, liquid barley malt Finish: trace tanginess, basic flat barley malt sweet finish. Summary: Is there a slight citrusy component or am I imagining things? Likely the latter, this one is extremely BORING. Barely any body and very one note. DWYT = Don’t Waste Your Time.

2.8
Kauge (2243) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 4, 2015
Tap at the Brewpub. Pale yellow with off-white head and loads of bubbles. Doughy grainy nose, somewhat fruity. Flavour similar. Not really inspiring or exciting or stimulating, although I do see myself enjoying a pint of this in good company. Crisp, refreshing on the palate. Weakish though, nearing watery.
