radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2004
Brilliant amber in colour. Aroma was of sweet maly, fruity hops, some caramel. Flavour had a nice caramel sweetness, mild hops, medium body, mild carbonation. Finishes smooth with a mild bitterness. Nice beer.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 11, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 5, 2005 Fresh hoppy moments fight through a predominantly malty and fruity aroma. Nice light orangey-amber colour with a rapidly diminishing white froth. Quite dry and has more sweetness in the finish than bitterness, when it seems like you want it the other way around. Not to bad, especially for around here. Thanks Jeff.

AlchemistZ (493) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - SEP 6, 2004
An almost perfect amber color. The aroma is a tantalizing combination of tropical fruit (apricots) and sweet, juicy malt. Flavor is strongly suggested by the aroma but the finish and expression of the beer is understated. A touch of bitterness comes into play to attempt to finish the beer then drops before completing its mission. The malt has an overly dry, husky character mixed with too much residual sweetness. Overall, the flavor disappointed me based upon how wonderful the aroma and appearance was.

pootzboy (1694) - Hopville, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 24, 2004
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2004 Bottled: Pour reveals a golden hued ale with an almost non existant head that goes to a sticky ring....very moderate carbonation( which is welcome in milder subtle beers). Aromas some grassy hops over sweet fruity notes. Starts mellow and smooth where the draft like mouthfeel has the balance weighted to spicy hops then a long finish where the wet citrus gives way to an increasing bready malt taste which leaves a light biscuity after taste. A very mild and mellow draft style ale. I would recommend to any cask ale fancier.

pintbypint (3352) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 7, 2004
Sample taken from 341ml brown bottle. Pours dark gold, surprisingly weak head. It as gone 3/4 way through the pint. Awesome aroma of oranges/citrusy hops and honey. Malty body and ends with more hops.

DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 26, 2004
Clear light amber body, thin white head kept visible by ample carbonation. Fruity aroma, has peach and orange with a light brown sugar undertone. Interesting flavor. Has orange cream ice cream, wheat bread, and coriander spice. Reminds me of a dark-tasting wit, really. Finishes with some resiny, piney hops (theyre light though, not IPA-like). Good stuff!

Aurelius (5129) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2004
An odd, grassy, starchy, orange gelatin aroma. Bad label, clear light orange/tan beer with thin head. Well-brewed hops up front, going to an orangey, dry malt flavor. Moderately sweet, tangy. Hopppy finish builds. Medium body and fairly acidic.

swingline (2) - Whitby, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 28, 2004 does not count
Good amber colour with not alot of head. Good aroma which is a hint of the citrus hops in the taste. Flavour is slightly hoppy with a very low key bitter finish. Nothing outstanding about this beer but not a bad beer at all

JoeMcPhee (9325) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 20, 2004
LIght amber colour with a cloudy off-white head. Rich caramel malt aroma, some spice and citrus hops. Flavour is similar, well balanced and with a nicely bitter finish. Simple but good.
