3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange colour with a nice big creamy off-whitish head. Very fruity, sweet and malty aroma. Less fruitiness in the flavout though it is present, good hoppiness, some sweetness, some maltiness. Rather thin APA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Slightly hazy, amber coloured, smaller, absolutely stable head, that sticks to the glass; enormous aromatic hoppy and fruity nose, some malt in the background; stronger bitter-sweet flavour; peppery hoppy, resinous finish, well balanced by some malt, lingering bitter aftertaste. Superb stuff, joss !

Courtesy of fonefan. It’s dark amber with an OK head. The aroma is fruity with notes of malt. The flavour has a light sweetness, notes of malt, caramel, fruit and a bit of spice. It’s straightforward and charming.

Thanks to Hogtown Harry for this one. The pour is dark straw with a 2-finger, off-white head. The aroma is caramel malty, with some honey, apricot, and pale malty honey. The taste was pale malty, with some crisp honey notes coupled with mild hops.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2007 Bottle @ Victory Cafe. Dark amber body with a moderate creamy off white head (3+). Fruity aroma with modest hops and surprisingly noticeable alcohol, much more than it should have for such a low abv brew. Similarly fruity flavour is roughly diminished by a strong alcohol presence that is not particularly well integrated into the rest of the flavour. Average palate. Not a great example of this beer. Disappointing. 6/3/5/3/10 - 2.7
<P>July 2003. Had mixed experiences with this. One tasty too warm and too fruity, one perfection of a pale ale at St. Lawrence beer festival, and one unbalanced hop profile on tap. 4/3/5/3/12 - 2.7

Bottle. Watery orange to cola colored pour with minimal head. This tastes a bit flat. Moderate caramel sweetness and a hint of citrus. Easy drinking but fairly dull and boring.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brilliant orange-amber with a moderate head. Fresh apricot fruit aroma with some green leafy element too. Initially modestly sweet and lightly fruity, but with a woody dry note in the finish. Surprisingly refreshing despite its complexity and very approachable. Fantastic!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 22, 2014 A luxurious head of foam and thick lacing cover smooth caramel in delicate earthy, citrusy hop bitterness…Lemony tea leaves and oily biscuits… Subtle and balanced, bitter enough to be quenching…

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This copper ale poured with a substantial beige head that lasted a while. The flavor is rather thin, but has some nice tasting caramel malt and a slightly bitter finish.
