(bottle) clear medium amber colour with small white head; aromas of candy, fruit; flavour is a letdown after the aroma - simple, mineral/ashy; with long medium bitter/mineral finish fullers (269) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2010
Bottle OCB Sample pack. Pours clear golden amber with thin white head. Floral hop aroma. Light bodied, quite smooth. Restrained bitterness in taste. Not a fan of this beer style, but this more acceptable than most. RC8 (305) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2010
A proper pale ale. Nice bitterness and balanced malt. Refreshing but not overly light. Very solid brew, this would do the trick for me very often. Ontbeertaster (2362) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2010
Quite nice actually, it is very smooth, light bitterness and overall it has a very flavourful taste. I would purchase this again PictouRx (180) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2010
This beer poured a medium brown color, smaller head, aroma is very floral. Beer has a smooth texture to it. This has some hoppiness to it but trails off, needs a little more. Only 5% so I can drink a few and be content, vs some higher ABV hoppy beers I have had.

Le liquide est doré et sa tête mousseuse est blanche. Une faible rétention est observée. Quelques traces restent collées au verre. Au nez, notes herbeuses et végétales avec la présence d’un malt doux. On croirait même, une fois les yeux fermés, à quelques effluves grillés. Le goût est correct, plus malté qu’houblonné, avec une amertume qu’on aurait voulu un tantinet plus mordante, voire plus efficace. Ceci dit, en bouche, le liquide est de densité moyennement faible avec une effervescence appropriée et une texture douce. Arrière-goût de céréales avec des notes amères timides. En résumé, bière honnête et très rafraîchissante. cyrenaica (1126) - Milton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2010

I tried this beer on tap on September 23, 2010 at "The Beerbistro" in Toronto, Ontario, Canada during Toronto’s 1st annual Beer Week. The beer was translucent gold with orange hues and a white foamy head. The aroma was grainy malt, some floral hops, and a hint of yeastiness. The mouthfeel was weak to medium bodied, with medium carbonatoin. The flavour was watered down malt, and detracted from the looks and aroma of this beer. The finish was bitter, but not so much hoppy.
Excellent caramel aroma with some refreshing citrus notes that are from both fermentation and hops. Almost clear bronze under a bubbly patch and ring and a thin cover. Flavour is pleasant citrusy hops in good balance with spicy caramel, but a quick shot of hops bitterness that ends with mineral water. Good start, but lacking finish. Light body, moderate carbonation, moderately bitter finish. imaragingbull (572) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 10, 2010
341 bottle. Pours yellow orange with a decent white head. Nutty, grainy and a touch of grassy and floral hop aromas on the nose. Sweet malt front and lingering dryish moderate bitter finish, medium mouthfeel. Not a bad brew, but as far as American Pale Ales go, not at the top.

I have had this one for longer than I should have, not sure which Canada trade it came from but I will give a shout out to Viggo since he is a pimp.
A: Pours a pale honey like golden color with a nice tall white head. Great retention, and spotty lace from top to bottom of my glass.
S: Simple aromas of crackery grainy malt, candy sweetness, and mild grassy hops.
T: Simple, on the malty side but I did let it sit around for a bit. The cereal grains are there, with hints of bread and caramel. Very subdued hop profile.... mostly grassy green hops with just a touch of citrus.
M: On the lighter side of medium, not bad really.
