(Tap) clear, bright yellow orange amber with a small tan head; faint aroma of herbs, berry; creamy palate; balanced flavour with a long, light bitter finish BrewWhatIWant (278) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 16, 2017
Pours amber with a thin film of foam. Aroma is caramel, herbs and basil. Taste is slightly sweet with mild notes of grainy malt, caramel and, obviously, herbs. Although it’s a hoppy herbal. The basil doesn’t really come through right away but slowly builds. Medium bodied with low carbonation. It has the characteristic malt of other 5 paddles brews. All in all, interesting and enjoyable, but definitely not something I could drink all the time. Spab (4006) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 1, 2017
650 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear orange colour with good-sized, creamy off-white head. Aroma is basil, caramel and grains. Flavour has solid but not overpowering basil, bread, caramel and light herbs. Slick mouthfeel. I had my doubts but this was pretty good. mikkopen (1192) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2017
650 ml bottle. Clear amber colour, thin off-white head. Sweetish malty aroma with herbal and biscuit elements. The flavour is bready-malty, sweetish, with a clear note of basil and a moderately bitter herbal hoppy finish. Refreshing. robinvboyer (4741) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 26, 2017
Bottle from the lcbo. Slightly hazy copper, with a large white head. Basil is soft but up front. Hints of piney hops and some crackery malts. Mouthfeel was soft, carb is the same. Finish is herbal, nice basil finish with a medium bitterness. I enjoyed this, soft and very quaffable.

Crisp. Tastes like basil. Definitely interesting and not bad, so long as you like basil in your beer. ChadPoole (478) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2016
Pours hazy orange copper with a thin white head. Sweet malt and herbs aroma. Basil taste with a nice bitter finish. Good clean crisp beer. Ferris (16303) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2015
Draft - Sweet grassy herbal notes. Clear gold with a decent white head. Lots of herbal notes, mild basil and malts. Basil is a bit lost in the herbal bitterness. Could be ’fresher’, radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2015

Some caramel sweet notes and herbs on the nose, definitely smelling the basil! Amber with a fast dissipating head. Taste is malty up front with some hops finishing into the herbal basily finish, not intense on the basil but after a few sips it shows. Refreshing, slight bitterness, sparkling, light bodied. Cute idea for a beer, it works well!
