omhper (24383) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2006
Bottled. Clear pale amber. Light aroma of paper and grass. Sweetish and lightly appley with clean mouthfeel. Medium bitterness. Subtle but without finesse.

fiulijn (19872) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 7, 2008
Draught at Vancouver airport lounge
Amber color. It has a nice hoppy aroma, but the flavor is more common. Still, one of the few interesting beers at airport lounges.

Bottle, sampled at Firefly Fine Wines and Ales, pours light amber. Weak malt and earthy hop balance. Very thin and watery - pass.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2004
Pale amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma is predominantly malty, slightly soapy smelling with a hint of spicy hoppiness. Flavour is also mostly malt with some faint orange citrus. Very low bitterness. Pretty standard but not bad.

solidfunk (8313) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAY 8, 2013
Pretty underwhelming pale ale. Smells like almost nothing with a faint taste of malt. Has some well-disguised hops that comes through a little on final aroma. Pours pale orange with some lacing, a little head. Finishes a little sour. Average carbonation. Sample at brewery.
