COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hybrid US/UK pale ale.
With an abundance of hops and a sweet caramel backbone, this is a true session beer. A grassy, nutty and flavourful malt body is balanced by citrusy hops and a touch of spice. Clocking in at 34IBU’s, this beer is just bitter enough to keep the hopheads coming back without being crushingly dry or astringent.

Note: Also available dry hopped as Augusta Ale Extra Hoppy (AAXH).

500 ml can from LCBO. Pours a golden colour with white head. Aroma of caramel. Taste is the same, with a hint of ginger. Pretty good beer.

Slight malty aroma. Clear warm golden colour. Slight caramel sweetness at the front with a quenching bitterness towards the end. Medium body and mild carbonation. A fine ale, but not too exciting

Bendrixian (994) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 5, 2013
Clear brew with decent head, well carbonated, and darker yellow colour. Muted brew with a slightly floral hoppy note, some malts and caramel. Fast tasting brew with light mid palate and a slightly hoppy finish. Meh, boring beer but not the worst.

50 cl can, Mulmur, ON, Canada via Paul. Pale amber, weak-tea appearance. Sweet caramel bread aroma. More sweetness on first sip. slight ginger flavour with caramel and cardamom spice. Finish is a bit too sweet for me, though it’s certainly quaffable.

Hammy78 (701) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2013
Can picked up at the University plaza LCBO. Pours true copper, small of white, clumpy head. Minor lace. Smells sweet malt. Tastes sweet malt, light hop bitterness. Nice brew.

DerWeg (1431) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2013
Rated version cask AAXH - "Augusta Ale Extra Hoppy" from hops added to cask. "We recently decided to try three new hop combinations for our most recent batch of cask – Citra, Amarillo and Saaz." - August 2012. Well this cask pint is mellow and rounded with nice alefruit, no English mustiness, and a pleasant zing of citrus and lightly bitter hops. AAXH deserves the session ale qualification even at 5.5% because it’s gorgeously drinkable and still full-flavored enough that I don’t drain my glass in five minutes like water. At The Only Café, Danforth and Donlands Toronto.

RxForHealth (135) - - JUN 3, 2013
473 mL can. Pours a dark yellow, with a modest head that lasts. Nicely carbonated. Aroma of some pine. The mouth feel is fairly carbonated, some flavor of hops. Long, bitter, finish. But it's not all that pleasant. On balance this is not a bad beer and is certainly a good effort for Canadian ale. Not sure I would order again, though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Freaky_tiki (403) - Ontario, CANADA - MAY 4, 2013
Pours a finger & a half cap that breaks to foamy cavities but I was on my 5th or 6th beer (see my ratings tonite) when I poured so it could be my technique. May not have the body of a starlet but this beer has character.

Gethinbeer (2074) - Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAR 21, 2013
Clear golden pour with a frothy white head. Fresh hop aroma. Crisp malt flavour. Hint of hop. Refreshing beer with a bitter finish.
