Copper, white head. Floral aroma of golding hops. Balanced bitterness and malt, though the beer lacks a little body and flavour. Not what I ordered, but alas, it was good anyway. tiggmtl (4543) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2004
Very mild floral hop nose. Deep copper colour with decent white fully diminishing head. Nice balance of malt and hops with a touch of fruitiness. Never sticky depite low carbonation. Medium body but a bit lifeless in the mouth. Clean, well-brewed but a bit simple. There is no one character that grabs you and defines this beer. Could be a very fine session beer. On tap at the brewpub. PrimeMinister (138) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2004
Ruby-like color. Very opaque and fruity (raspberry explosion). Eructoblaster (4412) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 19, 2004
Not very effervescent and needs some work in the corners (just like the Montreal Canadiens).
Nice hazy copper body with reddish glints. Modest head. Relatively complex malty nose with hints of raspberry. In the mouth it is not effervescent, but it is sweet, fruity and malty. That beer just behave like the Boston Bruins: it enters with robustness but the final definitely lacks some character... Lubiere (14182) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 20, 2004
Golden coloured beer with a thin head. Sweet malty nose with some caramel. Shapor matls, not sweet at all, and good sharp hops, almost dry. Medium bodied. Very honest pale ale.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2009 2009-06-06. Orangey body with a modest off-white head, nice lace. (3+) Flavour has a pleasant hoppiness throughout, but it feels a bit muddled at times, and a bit dilute overall. (6+) Mild aroma, pleasant citrusy melange of hops, mild malt. (6+) Average to light palate is just a touch under carbonated even for a cask. Okay, pleasant but just a touch too dilute. 6/3/6/3/13 - 3.1 On Cask, at the brewpub CapFlu (5132) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 1, 2003
