(draft) Crystal clear apple juice body with white head. Aroma is medium sweet, grapefruit, light herby. Taste is medium sweet, grapefruit, some caramel, lemon. Light and crisp body. This would make a great session beer! BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 7, 2005
Light golden and clear with minimal head. Aroma was lightly malty with some citrus and a little herbs. Has some caramel sweetness but perfectly balanced with the hops. Refreshing, clean and crisp, and well built ale. Oakes (18873) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 8, 2005
Straw colour. Light citric ale with breezy pale malt notes. Fresh pale malt character - soft with mild citrus notes. Moderate bitterness. Great balance, very fresh-tasting, wonderfully refreshing. Not billed as such, but an excellent English-style golden ale. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 14, 2005
Bottle: Golden, minor haze, mediocre frothy white head, decent lacing, moderate carbonation. Minor hop, citrus, subtle graininess on the nose. Fairly hop assertive start, mellows quickly. Grainy aspect is barely noticeable on the tongue. Very slight diacytl emerges at the finish, but not enough to detract. Average body and mouthfeel. Soft citrus like bitterness lingers. Pretty good stuff this is! Easily sessionable at 3.8%.

Draught at the brewpubdonandres (673) - Makati, PHILIPPINES - OCT 28, 2016
Golden color, just hazy, with creamy head. Now, this is a nice surprise; there is a good jib with the malt, that appears to be also a bit biscuity, delicate aroma of quality hops, fairly bitter, with a good amount of hop resins in the final.

Draft pour, tasted at Harmon, Tacoma. Clean golden pour with a foam ring head. Soft aroma, with sweet grain, and hops. Cool flavor, a refreshing pale. An excellent beer for a session. Where is this when the baseball season is going? Enjoyable for sure. Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 18, 2005

12/9/07 Aroma is hop forward with c-hops and a good sweet malt balance. Appearance is a slightly hazy light copper with almost no head. Flavor is quite sweet, with a honey-like malt blend balanced by a slightly earthy bittering for a great contrast. Mouthfeel is very smooth with a moderate carb bite and semi-sweet finish. Overall, nice balance and contrasts, easy drinking.
