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.

3.5
GregClow (3402) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2003
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

3.3
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.

Volgon (2761) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 26, 2002
RateBeer Summer (Toronto) '02: Murky orange color, light hoppy aroma, nice bitterness that get lighter in the finish. Second best behind the stout.

Nice English bitter hop aroma. Good body, bitterness is solid without being overwhelming.

4.3
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.

Mild sweet scent, clear golden, slightly sweet, bitter after taste. Smooth. Too easy to drink!
