(formerly Special Cream Pale Ale.) A refreshing and creamy smooth ale that is notably full of flavour.

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.

Très douce. Les malts anglais goûtent beaucoup et les houblons manquent de saveur. Pratiquement aucune amertume.

Can from the LCBO. Brown body, slightly amber with a minimal head on it which dissipated to nothing, leaving no lacing. Toffee and caramel on the nose, some wet carboard, papery. It’s quite watery with an abrupt uneventful finish.

HippyHop (531) - 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 (17720) - Washington, Washington DC, 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.

Ferris (8966) - 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 (1521) - 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".

fhoublon (316) - Lachine, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 5, 2014
Bouteille de 341 ml achetée au Beer Store de Cornwall. Dégustée le 8 juillet 2005. Bière blonde dorée limpide. Mousse très peu, col mince et éphémère. Très peu effervescente, bulles fines. Odeur de caramel, de cognac. Très douce, un peu sucrée, peu amère. Manque de caractère.

ILduce (228) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 16, 2014
Can in Welly tasters 4pack LCBO: Amber with substantial head and carb. Nose is subdued malt with some straw and toast. Taste is same with noticable hop absence. Creamy and balanced with a short rounded end. High drinkability, but nothing special, as it were.
