Nov, 2005. Kilburn Palace Bottle Fest. Hop oil aroma. Bitter. Watery mouthfeel. Not interesting. Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2005
Bottle at Chris’. A golden, bright beer. Citrus aroma. Sweet, malty beer balanced well with a pleasing US hop character. Good. 1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2005
Pours to a golden amber body with a thin nearly non-existent white head. The aroma is citrusy, lightly floral, and definitely dry-hopped. The flavor has that typical Rye flavor. Nice citrus hops. The palate is smooth, barely bitter. Nice and very easy to drink. JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 8, 2005
Nice gold body with a reddish hue. Thin white soapy head.
Sticky and wet cascade resiny hops in aroma. Some sweet malty hairspray also. Some hop Kool-aid and wet alfalfa.
Dry hoppy rye bread. A bit light in flavor, but still pretty good. shadey (2125) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 4, 2005
Orange pour with a quickly diminishing head.
Aroma is sweet and fruity with a hint of alcohol. The flavor and body seem bigger than the 5.3 percent that it is. Pretty nice stuff.

Clear, magnifying gold with saliva spackle for the head. Honey, whole wheat and pumpernickel dinner rolls drive the nose with cookie batter and a hint of spicy floral ness in pursuit. Dry, bitter tone. Liquid thirst salivater. Rye is pronounced in the form of salted pretzel rolls. Dry scratch with a staunch citric element but never sears. Papaya and starfruit provide most of the citrus flavoring with a formidable cascade presence, and caramel malt is only on hand to support from a distance. Briskly glides along the palate. A refreshing session ale that lets the rye shine. Thanks CaptainCougar! beerbuzzmontreal (3487) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 24, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 5, 2010 Pours a cloudy golden color with a small ring of white lace. Good aroma of rye and floral hops. Interesting flavor of rye and floral, resinous hops. The body is medium with a creamy texture and moderate carbonation. Very good. MartinT (9795) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 21, 2005

Grainy rye girth forms an alluring biscuity maltiness. Softly integrated perfumes give expectations that this is well-made.
A cushiony feel is created by biscuity rye pillows. Bitter and spicy hops delicately announce their presence. A beautifully crafted, mellow pale ale.
Laying back, a Sunday afternoon in spring.
Draught. Copper-colored, medium white head. Hops and grain in aroma, slight citrus. Flavor is moderately hopped, and a bit malty. very decent flavor. Mild hop aftertaste, and I like the effect of rye. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2005
Gently honeyed cookie maltiness leaves the necessary room for the toasty rye flavours to deploy. The pour is golden, hazy and forming a generous white foam. Light-medium bodied, excellent balance, not very complex, but appeasingly bready, gently hoppy and crafty. I could drink a lot of that.
