crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - AUG 6, 2011
A clear light copper body with a fast fading white head. Aroma had a good caramel malt note, some biscuit and slight hop profile. Aroma also had some astringent notes, somewhat medicinal. Flavor had good malt notes but the more astringent notes seemed to overpower the hop notes. Body was thin and week. Not a bad beer but in no way a good beer.

12oz bottle pours clear copper / gold with white head. The aroma offers up a mix of spicy hops and earthy hops with a bit of roasted malts and sweet malts in the background. The taste is similar with spicy and floral hops backed up by some earthy hops, a bit of roasted malts and malt sweetened floral hops into the finish.

It poured a golden yellow color with a thin head. The aroma was malty and hoppy, but overall was crisp and clean. The taste was a bit more refershing with a stronger malt and light yeast character. It is rather refreshing.

Pours light gold into a shaker. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to coat surface. Sour hay aromas. Thin sour caramel and wet hay from front to back. Abrupt bitter earth finish.

Doesn’t actually smell too good. Pretty smooth. Very little hop flavor. just a smooth easy-drinking beer.

jkwood04 (5472) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 22, 2011
12oz bottle in a shaker. Pours light copper with a thin, off-white head. Aroma of toasted malts, light hops, and a little tin. Not very good and not worth trying.

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - JUL 13, 2011
Great name, forgettable beer. Poured a light yellow with a foamy head - reminded me of bud light. The aroma was of overcooked bread and stale hops. Tasted lightly of hops and had grapefruit notes, altogether with a failing malt backbone for a balance. Ehh.

arone12 (935) - Maryland, USA - JUL 1, 2011
I like canada. Pours an orange color with a white head. Smells of malts. Taste is a bit sweet. Very little bitterness. Little cardboard in the taste. I actually find this beer to be refreshing and summery. Not bad!

bhensonb (15965) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 18, 2011
Bottle from Total Wine in Roseville, CA. Pours amber/gold with a creamy off-white head. Aroma is bready with a little fruity hop. Near med body. Bready like a premium lager with some citrus/fruit hop. Not spicy to me. It is just moderately bitter. Could be a lawnmower beer. If used as session beer it better be a short session.

OmegaX (1383) - Florida, USA - JUN 18, 2011
Tapping The Vine beer Panel. This one was a let down. Slightly malty character with almost no aroma. Some cheap grain/malt. Not too good.
