(Draught) Sampled at The Bard and Banker. Pours a thin, white foamy head with an orange body. Very fresh, mix of German hops and pacific northwest. Really blends well. Not too heavy with malt, a nice crisp beer. Very satisfied. 8/4/8/4/17
Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with a huge fluffy white head and tons of lace. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, sweet pale malts and fruity hop esters. Taste is grapefruit, resin, pine, caramel and sweet pale malts. Great balance between hops and malts make this beer very nice to drink. MartinT (10037) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2010
My Bottom Line:andrewturba (1190) - Alberta, CANADA - OCT 22, 2013
This galant Golden Ale balances refreshing citrusy hops and slender pale malts in a wash of big bubbles and wooden, green hop bitterness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A lofty head of foam decorates the misty amber-hued golden.
-The pale malt flavors are simply beautifully extracted and present from aroma to finish.
-That green wood note from the bittering hops last well after the initial sip is gone.
-This is a great summer brew, or year-round quencher for that matter. Since this is their flagship brew, I can’t wait to try the rest of the lineup!
Bottle. Thx Stephen!
Pours a slightly hazy golden-amber with a large sticky dull white head that slowly settles leaving a lot of lace up the glass. Aroma is big citrus, tropical fruits, resin, and caramel maltiness. Flavour is pine, resin, grapefruit, medium bitterness, and moderate sweet malts to balance the delicious hops. Maybe a bit hoppy for a pale ale but the bitterness doesn’t really linger and hell I’m loving it. PWheatley (119) - , Quebec, CANADA - JAN 3, 2010

Pours clear amber colour with low head. Strong citrus flavour dominates nose. Medium full mouthfeel tiggmtl (4544) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2008
Rich, sweet malts blend nicely with spicy, grassy, pine-like citrus hops in the nose. Clear, deep golden coloured body is topped by an enthusiastic white head that recedes slowly and laces well. Light cereal malt character with spicy hop flavours and medium bitterness. Somewhat sweet and floral in the finish. Medium light body with crisp carbonation. Somewhat slick in texture. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle. Brewery Creek. Dec-08. northropfrye (3676) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 28, 2012
Copper in colour with white head, not much retention, but decent lacing. Lively spicy aroma. The flavour with much like an APA or IPA, so I was surprised this was categorized as a Golden Ale. Much more flavourful than your typical golden ale/blond ale. Nice beer. LarryBeast (616) - - SEP 3, 2012
650ml bottle. Amber/orange with lasting foamy white head and lacing. Aroma of West Coast hops - citrusy and green. Initial hop kick turns soft and floral as you drink; caramel malts balance out the flavour which becomes lightly bitter-sweet. This is hop-forward but not too aggressive. Medium-bodied, average carbonation, easy to drink. Long, bitter finish. Subtle, nothing fancy, just effective.
