Almost like a burnt orange in colour. Looks great. Like others have said, no malt in the flavour. Some terrific citrus notes, I pick up on some grapefruit. A nice head. A truly refreshing beer. Less bitter than the Red Racer’s IPA. Both accessible and enjoyable to the taste and palate. Makes the lager and white ale seem as vanilla as they are in the summer taster pack. Should come with a warning not to drink while riding a bicycle.

355 ml can in a mixed pack from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear deep golden with a fair white head. Aroma: Rich tropical fruits, citrus, light resin/pine notes, a little dusty, decent biscuity/caramel malt support, quite nice. Palate: Medium body, sparse yet prickly effervescence. Flav.: Citrus, fruity hops, biscuit, bread crust, a little pine/resin, nice; dry with good bitterness and a pleasant, lightly fruity hop finish.

Another nice beer from Central City!

355 mL bottle. Copper-brown with a small white head. Nice looking beer. Mild aroma of citrus hops and biscuity malt. Mild, balanced, drinkable flavour. Not a lot of bitterness. The IPA and ESB from these guys are fantastic, the pale ale decent, and the white and pilsner just passable.

I had this one twice in a week - once in a sampler pack of cans and once on draft at the brewery. Well-hopped and tasty. Not my favourite of the Central City Stable, but well worth a pint or two.

mgermani (1010) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 1, 2009
Pours a crystal clear golden yellow with a thin but lasting head. Aroma is sweet and smells strongly of honey. Tastes of honey, clover, fresh herbal hops. Good carbonation, creamy body. Quaffable and fresh, a good session ale.

Spab (4081) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2010
355 ml can from Premier Wine & Spirits (Halifax). Pours a clear orange colour with small-medium sized white head. Citrus hops and crystal malt aroma. Similar taste although hops really dominate. Light-medium body. Moderate, slightly spicy bitterness in finish. Good.

3.3
porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - AUG 17, 2010
(Can from Rum Runner) Pours light amber with three fingers of foamy off-white head. Aroma is fresh, sweet and fruity, with hints of caramel and pine. Mouthfeel fairly smooth, light bodied, some light pebbliness. Lots of foamy patches of lacing. Flavor of mild, sweet fruit and caramel with bitterness building on the back end leading to a medium-mild bitter bite in the finish.
