Draught @ Brewpub: This one loses style points by being served in a frosted pint glass. It poured a clear golden yellow with a small white head on it. It left some lacing. The aroma was light but pleasant, with mainly some grapefruit and floral hop notes to the nose. Just a slight bitter taste with some maltiness. A good "starter" or session beer.

My Bottom Line: Sammy (12837) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 12, 2007
Citrusy, floral hopping waltzes atop light toasted maltiness until a herbal and wooden hop bitterness seals the deal. This textbook Golden Ale is a perfect introduction to craft beer for neophytes, and it should please connoisseurs at the same time.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the filtered copper blond.
-For a "house blond", this is not shy on the hops, for once.
-The fragile malt sweetness is a tad too shy to balance out the hop display.
-Carbonation is prickly and the body svelte.
On tap at the brewpub.
Light amber, with some head. Sweet and citrus. C hop. Sessionable ABV as per much of the lineup. Medium mouthfeel, an average beer.

A very crisp and surprising offering from Opa-Opa. Reminded me a bit of a kolsch in its tight taste and crisp palate. Piss-yellow color put me off a bit, but aside from that, this was a tasty light ale. Miguel (1181) - Saint-Ours, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2007

Pours gold with a white head. Smells of flowery with some biscuits. Taste is nutty and toasty with some earthy pepper splashes on the finish. dirtymike (2016) - Manchester, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 14, 2005
Clear golden color with medium white head. Aroma of toasted malt, mild fruit and hops. Malty, bready flavor balanced by hops with a moderate yet assertive bitterness. Dry and malty with a slightly bitter finish.
