ChadPoole (284) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2016
Pours clear copper with an off white head that fades quickly.  Not much aroma. Taste of malts and toffee. Nothing special

473 ml can. Pours a clear copper-dark golden with a nice white head. Aroma is caramel, biscuit and grapefruit. Flavor is caramel, dry biscuit and wheat flour. Finish is grapefruit and grass. Medium body, soft mouthfeel and average carbonation.

Helsdon (351) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
Caramel brown clear. Once again the thought of head. Soft caramel malts nose. Taste caramel malts, some sweetness but not overbearing, hops doesn’t really show up. Meh.

FrenchieK (20) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2015
Pours a clear copper with an average size white head. Some nice bubble action going. Aroma and flavour of sweet caramel malt, floral hops and fruit. Palate was a little thin and bitter in a slightly unpleasant way.

Franckg (1186) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 18, 2014
Très douce. Les malts anglais goûtent beaucoup et les houblons manquent de saveur. Pratiquement aucune amertume.

gregorymconway (216) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 27, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2015 Can from the LCBO. Brown body, slightly amber. Toffee and caramel on the nose, some wet carboard, papery. It’s quite watery in texture with an abrupt finish.

HippyHop (603) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 23, 2014
This stuff is pretty generic on all counts. Grain and a bit of caramel, with an unsurprisingly watery quality. Finish is nice and bitter, but overall this stuff is pretty blah.

Travlr (21446) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Sample at Atlantic Beer Festival Moncton. Crystal clear golden amber color, tiny white edge head. Aroma of light smoke and black pepper. Taste is bittersweet caramel.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
Ferris (12747) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2014
Draft - Light grains, caramel and earthy hops. Clear copper with a decent beige head. Toffee and earthy hops. Typical and nice English style.

lesifflebiere (1670) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 17, 2014
Franchement orangée, limpide et mince, effluves de fruits jaunes, un peu d’ananas. En bouche, bouillon légèrement houblonné, un peu fruité aussi, avec une trame légèment aqueuse qui lui enlève du tonus. Une boisson désaltérante, un peu facile à oublier cependant, mais qui, par son absence de défauts importants, réussit sa mission "pale ale". À défaut d’être "special".
