DeanF (2647) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2018
Aroma of soft graham cracker with vague hop hints. Has a head dissipating fast and a light brown body. Flavour is soft barley and grain, but no complexity. Kind of weak on the mouth, a bit watery, needs more oiliness. It's okay but needs more of everything.

3.6
AgentAle (1879) - Fort Mcmurray, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 30, 2017
Aroma is caramel, orange peels, and honey. Taste is clove and lemongrass accented by an earthy and slightly spicy aftertaste. Well balanced and tasty.

3.3
ljthiessen (1540) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - SEP 5, 2016
Bottle. Cloudy deep amber pour with a thick off-white head. Aroma is toffee and caramel, slightly bready with some citrus brightening it up. Taste is lots of toffee and caramel, quite flavourful for the low ABV, some earthy hop notes, finishes with some bitterness. Not bad, but not great for the style.

reebtogi (6488) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 9, 2016
650ml bottle pours a copper color with 2 fingers of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel with some citrus and grass. Taste is a citrus and grass hop bitterness with a caramel malty sweetness. Light bodied with decent carbonation. A nicely balanced brew that suits the style well. Well crafted and recommended.

3.7
Oldschool_Mike (368) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 30, 2016
Bottle into pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy orange copper colour with white head. Aroma is slightly floral. Taste is orange with a pleasant earthiness.

DuffMan (10935) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 12, 2016
Bottle, shared with Jordan. Bright orange amber with a lasting white head. Aroma and flavour are both very hop dominated, lots of orange peel, with underlying toffee malts. Very bitter finish. More of an APA, but contrary to the opinion of most who have rated before me, I thought this was quite well done. I’d have it again actually.

UXO (1896) - CANADA - MAR 18, 2016
Appearance: clear pale amber with one fat finger of ivory head, excellent retention and patchy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: vegetal, catty, biscuity malt, pine. (4/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter finish. (3/5) Tastes quite a bit better than it smells. Actually, the smell settles down after a bit - but the very first whiff is vegetal, and though I don’t know what it’s dry-hopped with, there’s a cattiness suggesting Citra or Mosaic. Definitely not getting the “bright aroma of citrus and grapefruit” in the brewer’s product notes. Although it gets a little more palatable as it progresses, ultimately becoming somewhat drinkable, it’s not great. (12/20)

simonblaine (593) - Alberta, CANADA - MAR 14, 2016
Pours orange, tasty, but not amazing. Slightly bitter, floral, giant bottle, drinkable. Holy crap, the app is working again!

2.9
Lagerboy (2239) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 17, 2016
Bomber. Sediment clouded oranger copper, mostly lasting firmer off-white foam. Citric herbal aroma. Taste is mostly citrusy floral herbal hop, mild caramel malts behind, thin earthiness. Average carbonation, medium bodied, moderately hopped. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

4.1
Reeko (50) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 31, 2015
Pours a nice clear amber. Grassy aroma. Small white head with medium carbonation. Tase of light caramel malt with light nutty dry finish maybe a slight fruity taste. Moderately bitter. This one is definitely one worth trying. Very good for an esb. Good job S&O.
