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).

[bottle at DwEEBs meeting] Metallic and sour aroma that is slightly enteric, with notes of cherries and base malt. Slightly hazy gold under lacy white. Slightly enteric and cheesy flavour with base malt, faint hops, and moderate bitterness. Light body, medium carbonation. Are you sure this isn’t a Trafalgar beer?

Style et résumé: American pale ale à 5,5% alc/vol de bonne facture.
Comment: Canette de 473ml. achetée en Ontario et reçue par Patrick.
Description: Bière dorée claire avec une belle mousse blanche crémeuse. Le nez est discret mais agréable avec un léger malt blond et une touche de houblon. Une bouche ferme houblonnée avec une finale amère. Une bonne bière facile à boire mais tout de même gouteuse.
Note: 6+ /10

SlovakSniper (3568) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 7, 2012
473 ml. Un liquide fortement doré. Une tête crémeuse mais assez petite. La naissance d’une dentelle. Des parfums houblonnés qui tardent à s’évaporer. Des relents citronnés avec ce qui me semble être des herbes. Une préesence maltée qui me rapporte au style. Des saveurs d’agrumes traversées par des céréales qui ne sont jamais trop douces. Une bouche de faible densité avec un pétillement soutenu. Une texture presque aqueuse. Une finale qui porte une amertume aux consonnances herbeuses. Facile à boire avec un profil houblonné assez franc.

GuillaumeCL (344) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 2, 2012
Can from the LCBO . Pours a golden orange with a bit of white head. Smell is sweet with a bit of a cartel hint and another hint of hoppiness. Palate is a bit high with average carbonation. Taste is a bit watery at first but then a bit of sweetness comes which quickly balanced by some hoppy bitterness. Not bad overall.

Metalchopz (2501) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 30, 2012
Single can at the Orleans LCBO. Pours a clean golden-amber colour with a foamy off-white warm cap that leaves a soapy top and lacing. Mild hop nose at first, but eventually, becomes malty with caramel, bread and fruit. Medium-bodied and kind of smooth. The hop is present in the taste as well, and mild as well. Adds grapefruit notes to the caramel malts and some nice light dryness in the finish. Pretty good session American Pale Ale, well-balanced between hoppy, but not too much. Overly refreshing.

Pours golden amber with frothy head from cans at LCBO. Aroma is light and taste has that good light bitterness with a smooth mouthfeel.

Gorbalev (2981) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
On tap at Burger Bar and in cans from LCBO. Dark yellow, small white foamy head. Fruity hop and malt aroma. Taste is very good - generously fruity hopped over a medium body that seems well carbonated with a long bitter longer. A perfect session beer. Certainly better fresh on tap vs. in the can, yet the can does retain that flavourful bitter "session"ability in the beer that I enjoy. A solid ale.

shaynsawchuk (607) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2012
473 mL can. Pours a clear bronze with a thick foamy lasting head. Nice hoppy IPA like aroma. Citrus, lanolin and deep rich malt. Sweet with caramel and orange notes, slightly bittered finish. Waxy texture with moderate carbonation and a sticky finish. A nice well rounded ale with a good hoppy bite, but nothing outstanding.

TheJester (2038) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 17, 2012
473 ml can. Can’t really say what it looks like, since I drank it out of the can. I’m sure it’s very pretty. Hard to tell the aroma either, although I do get some floral hoppiness if I really try. Doesn’t really taste lile much, although it is very clean and drinkable. Good dock beer. I should probably try to find it on tap, or do this properly out of a glass.

Pours a crystal clear, light amber with a small fizzy white top. Aroma is faint grain with faint hop. Taste is clean but fairly boring. Little hop presence. Really not interesting.
