Full Moon Pale Ale is a classic West Coast style pale ale. The fragrant hop aroma and moderate hop bitterness make this one of Canada's finest.

Bottled. Sweet and highly hopped aroma. Classic copper pale ale colour with a reasonable white head. Highly hopped flavour with some biscuity notes. A underlying bitterness continues to the finish - a superb pale ale.

West coast pale ale....ummmm, not in this bottle. Tinges of citrus, pale, yeasty malts. Nothing very impressive, and quite boring. Run of the mill pale ale.

Yellow orange colour (copper) with a foamy white head. Transparent clarity. Aroma of yeast and hops. Taste is smooth with slightly bitter hoppy aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Reilly’s Taphouse, Itaewon. Clear copper. Fruity toffee throughout. Nothing special.

northropfrye (2198) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - APR 7, 2014
On tap at Sugarbowl. A decent APA but I guess I was a bit disappointed in this. Would have like a bit more assertiveness in the hops, but still a decent beverage. The first time I’ve had an Edmonton beer in Edmonton.

MunBro (330) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 18, 2014
Pours a deep, clear copper. Minimal white head with lacing. Tastes of pale, citrus-ey hops with a great smooth flavor. Alley Kat is local for me and I love all of their offerings!

Pours clear copper, very nice nose. Light carbonation, and really great hop palate. Quite good

Masterkush7 (504) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 6, 2013
Pours a clear copper color with a white head and some lace. Smell is of caramel and a nice faint citrus maltiness. Taste is pale malts up front then some sweet caramel and a good mouthfull of citrus hops. Great American pale ale!

Metalchopz (2261) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 31, 2013
Thanks to Nic for bringing this back for me from Edmonton. Pours a clean darker amber colour with a frothy warm cap, great retention and thick foamy lace. Big cereal grain malt scent with hints of goat soap and hops. Medium-light mouthfeel, feeling like Perrier but without too much carbonation. Smooth cereal malt flavours with a nice light bitter hoppy finish. The grain in this one balances the grass notes in this one. Pretty easy to drink West Coast Pale Ale that still has a micro character.

Sample at Calgary beer fest. Golden color, thick white head, solid lacing. Aroma of lemongrass. Taste is bitter lemon.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Great local (for me) beer. Lovely citrus / grapefruit taste, one of my go to beers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
