Same deep red/gold colour as the special, maybe a bit lighter. Thin beige head. Lacks the fruity aroma and flavours of the special, instead having a more straightforward gentle floral aroma and a dry bitterness through the finish. Lighter body, with the same dry finish.

Nice light caramel colour. Fruity hop aroma and flavour with a dry finish. Nice stuff. dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2002
One of their better offering. Good example of the style. Slight oxidation off flavours -sherry/cardboard type flavours. But overall it is a good session ale. mrkimchee (1414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2002
dark orange colour. head disappears immediately. nicely subtle without being boring. mixed fruity flavour of orange, apricot, peaches having a civil discussion with the hops. very tasty joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 22, 2002
Rich copper colour w/ small head. Mild aroma w/ light hops notes. Smooth feel but perhaps a little thin & watery. Not particularly complex. Malt & Fruit flavours that are again a little watery. Satifying finish, but not overyly bitter.

RateBeer Summer (Toronto) '02: Murky orange color, light hoppy aroma, nice bitterness that get lighter in the finish. Second best behind the stout. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 22, 2002
Nice English bitter hop aroma. Good body, bitterness is solid without being overwhelming. Schroppfy (2362) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JUL 22, 2002
A newly tapped keg of this ended up being a beautiful winner. Creamy, spectacular bitter. Radek Kliber (7501) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 20, 2002
Cloudy, tea like brew. I like the fact that it was nicely made. At first sweet but later on turned into nice bitterness. DougShoemaker (3146) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2002
Mild sweet scent, clear golden, slightly sweet, bitter after taste. Smooth. Too easy to drink!
