473ml can purchased as a single from the LCBO booth at the Toronto Royal Winter Fair.
Poured into an imperial pint glass, formed a dense 1/2" light beige head over the slightly cloudy golden copper brew. Head recedes gradually, with sporadic lacing. Aroma is sedate, lightly citrus.
Taste starts medium sweet, citrus tart in the middle, biscuit and moderately bitter close. Mouthfeel is pretty smooth, and drinkability is good. I wouldn't kick this one to the curb.

473 ml can from LCBO into a pint glass.
Appearance - Clear golden brown / copper color, 2 fingers of creamy white head with significant retention. Some great lacing on the glass too.
Smell - Predominately hops, citrus, pines scents. Balanced with mild detectable malts. This is pretty good.
Taste - Similar to the smell, the hops are nice. New drinkers to the style without a love of hops will find this palatable, yet has sufficient IBU's that hopheads won't sneer at it. Nothing extraordinary but above average. There is a bit of a lingering bitter aftertaste is expected, however the bitterness here seems more bitter than the beer itself.
Mouthfeel - Well carbonated should give it a creamy feel, yet this comes out feeling almost a touch thin.
Overall - First time trying this beer, and was not disappointed. Pretty good brew.

Got this one at the LCBO.
From a 16oz can into a snifter
APPEARANCE: Pours a one finger, looser looking, white head with decent retention. Head fades to a thin film. Cloudy gamboge with no real carbonation. Splotchy wisp remains leaving some decent lacing down the glas.
SMELL: Pale malts, caramel, some floral hops and touches of bread on the nose. Alright.
TASTE: Some pale malts up front with touche s of caramel through the middle and floral hops at the swallow. A big aftertaste of grainy malts, bread, and bitter floral hops linger on the palate. A little light up front, but the grainy, bitter finish is interesting enough.
PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes slightly dry. Good feel for the style.
OVERALL: Pretty good actually, and really well executed, but still not my style per se. A little too grainy and harshly bitter at the finish. Not a bad beer at all, but not something I'd want to re-visit myself. Still, give it a shot if you see it, as it might be right up your alley.
