robinvboyer (4311) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2011
Cask days 2011. Incredible citrus aroma. Every citrus fruit under the sun. No malt to speak of, just the way i like it. Incredible hoppy finish, juicy, fruity, citrucy. Medium bitter finish, with an aftertaste that is incredible. Citra is an incredible hop.
Earlier Rating: 3/2/2009 Total Score: 3
nice golden amber pour, with a nice white head. Solid aroma of grass, hops, and some slight honey. The flavor is hoppy, but not overly hoppy. There is some nice malt notes, and more of the grass, with a lingering soft hoppy bitterness. Not outstanding, but a solid, quenching, tasty amber ale.

asheft (3029) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2011
[on tap at the Alibi room] Slightly toasty caramel/toffee aroma with butterscotch and pear accents. Clear amber under a lasting, flannel, off-white blanket. Toasty, slightly diacetyly flavour with toffee and spicy hops. Medium bitterness with slight nuts and bread crust and no pale ale character. Medium body, moderate to medium carbonation, quite a bit of nutty bitterness in the finish.

Can:   Vibrant amber, clear, large frothy off-white head, mild carbonation, fairly nice lacing.   Soft hoppy aroma, a little musty malts, smidgen of earth.   Not terribly hoppy up front, certainly pale for a Pale Ale.   However it is clean.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   A little citrus zest appears on the finish, otherwise soft lingering hops.   Seems like a straight forward clean example to me.   Not a big Pale Ale, but certainly commendable.

Nose of floral hops, nice moderately sweet malts, a hint of caramel, light citrus. Pours orange golden with a fairly nice frothy head. THe flavor is moderately sweet pale malts, caramel, floral and citrus hops in the finish. Nicely balanced between sweetness and hoppy. Very drinkable. Nice stuff.
