500 mL Draft had at a pub. Yellow-gold body with a foamy white head settling to a clingy film. Sweet malts with noted of pungent hops and earth come through in the nose. Sweet light malts with a crispness to it that would go well with crackers or pretzels, hops come up in the aftertaste without being too imposing. Pleasantly light with hops lingering in the finish. Yeah, I could have a session with this. rob6239 (677) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2012
Very smooth drink. On tap at pepperwood beerfest. Has good but slight hop aroma up front. Neither sweet nor bitter but a light version of a pale ale Hammy78 (973) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2012
On draft at the Toronto beer festival. Pours a golden/ copperish colour, some white head. Citrus aroma, and some bitter hop taste. Pretty good. patricks110 (2494) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 10, 2011
This one was not the greatest and not what I was expecting. The pour is a bright golden/amber with a huge frothy white head. Some thick lacing rings. The nose is overly grainy with a fresh floral hop with prominent pine and light citrus. The taste is grainy and bland overall with a medium body. An overall grainy taste with a light hop on the finish. An overall light skunk and a very ’off’ taste. Overall, the nose was great but the taste fell way short in my opinion. cyrenaica (1126) - Milton, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2011

I tried this beer on October 17, 2011 after purchasing from one of my local LCBO outlets. The beer pours a light golden orange ini colour with a thin tan head that lasts a while. Aroma is citrusy hops, caramel, and light fruit. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carbonation. The flavour is caramel, fruit, weak grapefruit, and a nice bitter finish. This would definitely make a great session beer.
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2014 bottle. Poured clear amber with a decent white head. Fresh citrus hop aroma. Light-medium body, average carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. Tart grainy flavour, caramel malt with peppery hops. DeanF (2453) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 11, 2011
Okay bright gold body, very weak head. Good hoppy aroma. Flavour is a nice light brew with a hoppy finish. This is a good refreshing brew, nothing special, but it’s something you can drink easily. Metalchopz (3370) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 2, 2011
Came in the OCB Discovery Pack 9 at the LCBO, for summer 2011. Honey coloured (golden with a hue of amber) with a big frothy slightly off-white head that has good retention and dirty lacing. Nice fresh grain scent (biscuit malt) with some mild piney hop well-balanced in the back to add some character. Smooth medium-bodied, not to be too watery, but still be refreshing. Mildly sweet malt with some fruity notes and a lightly dry finish. A pretty good, above average Ontario Pale Ale. DuffMan (10284) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 8, 2011
Bottle brought from Kingston by Robbie. Pale orange amber. Soft stone fruit hop aroma and flavour, sweet malt, low-medium bitterness. Quite sessionable. strowlands8 (209) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2011
Fresh from the brewery, nice light hoppy aroma, flavour is really fresh and crisp with a nice amount of hop bitterness. Not the biggest hop flavour, but really clean and well done. Great summer beer.
