Draft @ Mill Street (Toronto): Poured an amber color with a nice head. The aroma was bitter and sweet. The flavor was grass, earth, bitters and hops. Overall, easily drinking. JHunter (772) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2012

On tap at the brewpub. The color is amber with a thin beige head. The taste is of hops with some sweetness of fruits. Some malt but not to much. It has a nice bitter finish. AWS9 (756) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2009
On tap at the Grad Club. Ruby brown, with a decent head. Simple but effective hops and caramel malt in the aroma. Bread, malt, and a slight grassy hop touch, with caramel and chocolate undertones. Smooth finish, though a little sticky and could use some bitterness. Quality brew.

At pepperwood beerfest sampled. Pours dark and clear. Good aroma hit with caramel malt and floral hops. Great smooth bitter beer hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - JUL 21, 2008
draft at brewery. Nicely done. earthy sharp hops dominate at first, and without a strong bitterness, keep on going as you drink the beer. Enjoyable. VeloVampire (625) - Parkdale, Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2006
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2009 On tap at the Mill St. brewpub - came a hazy gold colour, with a thin white head that lasted for a bit. Earthy, bready aroma, but not huge - fairly subtle. Taste was very nice - lightly hoppy, balanced with the quality malt, and then a pleasant light bitter finish. Would be nice if it was slightly less carbonated, and would be delicious in cask form. Very soft in the mouth. A really good session bitter. Update - had on cask at the brewpub. It’s all of the above, but softer and more flavourful, with a slightly slippery mouthfeel. Superb.
Note: had this on cask dry-hopped at the brewpub last night and it was delicious - try it out if you get a chance. Not hugely complex or amazing, just really simple and drinkable. BreWedge (582) - goose bay, Newfoundland, CANADA - SEP 22, 2012
On tap @ Mill Street TO Pearson. Pours a very light brown bordering gold with a thin head. Aroma was hard to discern. Taste is roasty malts, some biscuit, and some bitter hops. Mouthfeel is a mild bite from the hops with a short finish. paco (576) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - DEC 4, 2010
Tap at the brewery. Murky orange, light brown. Aromas of floral hops, some caramel and citrus. Taste is full of malts and a nice hop bitterness. This is for me, the perfect session beer.
