Oakes (17093) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 13, 2016
Brassy, thick head. Leafy, lightly biscuity, light berryish curranty taste. Low bitterness, mellow character. For me the unique berryish hop note was great, but it was a bit sweet for quantity drinking.

sulawang (1148) - - OCT 13, 2016
Visual: Pours mostly clear deep copper with minute bits of sediment, 1cm head and 1mm retention, singular slow streams.

Nose: grassy lawn, light honey. (lvl-2)-intensity

Attack: thin crisp, soft CO2

Mid-palate: background cucumber-mint grassy-plastic hop oils, (lvl-3-sweetness), bright metallic honey barley malt

Finish: chamomile-osmanthus herbal tea rough aftertaste

Summary: Quite a big grassy-floral flavour; it reminds me of chamomile tea - somewhat incongruent with their barley malt base.

Ohhh? Freshening, grassy and... fresh! Fresher than a pale ale should be Colors right, golden- Heather Mild. Light golden Overall taste isnt bad, very fresh as mentioned above. Like a pine tree!

Ferris (14783) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 10, 2014
Draft - Fresh pine and some resin. Clear gold with a rich creamy beige head. Grapefruit and resin, not bright but mellow and balanced with a light bitterness.

pushkinwow (2758) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 3, 2014
Bomber from Taylor in 2014 fall CANBIF. Clear copper with an off white head that mostly fades. Muted and slightly wet hop with a chewy malt presence, moderate carbonation and mild body, slightly stale caramel presence as things dry out and a mild hop bitterness.

fiulijn (20256) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 29, 2014
Draught at St. Augustines, Vancouver, 5.3% ABV
Beautiful amber color, clean, with small head. Aroma of refined sugar, vegetables, metallic. Dry mouthfeel; simple caramel flavor with a hint of vegetables and iron (tomato); no discernible hop quality, and a metallic finish.

vadie (1256) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2014
Jaune pale avec un petit tte blanc que rtrci rapidement mais en laissent les belles dentelles. Larme dhoublon trs frache avec un peu de pin. Quand elle se rchauffe il a un peu de larme caractristique de Hoyne. Je ne sais pas exactement comment le dcrire, mais un peu comme larme dune brasserie, le malt us dans la brassage, peut-tre. Le got est trs bonne. Lger in bouche et trs fine et quilibr, dhoublon frache et du pin.

Lagerboy (2159) - British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2013
Bomber. Clear lighter orange copper, foamy white head settles and fades. Fresher aromas of mild citrus herbal hops and sweet pale malt. Sweet caramel biscuit malt taste, light juicy citrus leafy hops, some earth. Average carbonation, light bodied, moderately hopped. Nice fresh sessional pale. MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)

kramer (6609) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body with a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin wispy film. The nose is just mildly hoppy, especially for a wet hopped beer. The nose is actually a bit metallic smelling with a little caramel malt. The flavor is pretty light in the hops department as well, some green leafy hops, minimal bitterness. This one just doesnt thrill me at all, wet hop beers are supposed to be much brighter and juicier than this. Lighter bodied with a fizzy carbonation level and some light lingering sweetness. Pretty boring stuff, I was hoping for much more.

Storm_Shadow (122) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 26, 2013
Bomber. Pours amber. Hoppy light easy drinking beer worth trying out. Does this come in 6 packs ?
