Tap at Fynn’s of Temple Bar. Pours a hazy orange/gold. Pretty carbonated. Bubbly cream head. Aroma is mildly hoppy citrus (no pine) and bready, with orange, honey and a little cinnamon. Medium body. Not overly flavourful. Mild caramel malt up front, with a medium finish of lemon, grass and a bit of mineral. Little hint of coke or root beer. Warms well. Nice little standby.

On tap at The Burger bar, golden-amber-copper color, with a white head, nice fruity, piney, leafy, floral hop nose, with some faint toasted, caramel, biscuity malt note, and some citrusy, lemon, grapefruit english hoppy accents in the aroma follows through on a medium-bodied palate with a crisp earthy flowery, leafy, grassy, piney, hop character at first, with a zesty, lemon, grapefruit peel, cedary backbone, and a light biscuity, toasty maltiness undertone, leading towards a nice leafy, grassy, piney, citsusy hop bittering finish.

Decent and very drinkable beer. Nice balance of prominent malt character with a good, american-style hop profile. Not hoppy enough for an IPA or APA in my mind but nice. pootzboy (1779) - Kitchener, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2011
On tap: Pours a roily copper colored ale in the tumbler, smallish cap lasts and laces. Decent aroma; pungent cereals mingle with fruity esters and spicey-grassy hopping, some musty earthiness. Flavor is well defined, deep bready malting balanced off with spicy-piney hops, fruity...mild character, soft mouth feel,...finishes long wet and bitter with an extended wet metal taste. Nicely done pale ale in the old Burton style.

On cask at Bryden’s in Toronto. Nice slightly hazy light copper colour, with foamy head and nice lace. Sweet malt and slight bitter. Very balanced with nice lingering aftertaste. MrManning (2009) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 14, 2011

Citrus and herbal hoppy nose, with bread, toast, and dark fruits as well.A decidedly fruity sweet flavour profile with medium bitterness overall. Medium bodied, quite creamy and soft. Long bitter finish with a metallic twang lingering.Good effort. Lubiere (14110) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2011

I tried this beer on tap on April 29, 2011 at ’C’est What" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The beer poured a translucent golden copper colour with a thin white head that laced well. The aroma was citrus hops, caramel malt, and alittle spice. The mouthfeel was medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour slightly sweet with grapefruity hops. Refreshing and enjoyable.
Pours clear golden with thin white head. Like others here, the word "sessionable" immediately jumped to mind. Dry cereal malt with a bit of a caramel kick to it. Hops are the main story - really grassy/herby. Some citrus. Big bitter kick on the finish.
