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).

Leighton (9848) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2012
Can at Chriso Tasting, London. Thanks to Chris himself! Pours perfectly clear gold with a fine, white foam head. Lightly toasted pale malt nose with hints of dry pine and light orange. Light to medium sweet flavor with light bread, faint caramel, mild pine, orange citrus. Light to medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Faintly resinous to finish with more pale malts and light straw. Very decent beer.

Lubiere (9430) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 31, 2011
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2011 A hazed amber alew ith a thick moka head, lacing. In aroma, nice biscuitty malt with Britsh hops, light mineral notes, a bit of marmelade, nice. In mouth, a surprisingly hoppy ale with light caramel, herbaceous, floral hops, sustained bitterness, grapefruit, very nice. On tap at Burger Bar, May 21 2011. 8-3-8-3-14

As AAXH: A hazed amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, a smooth grainy malt with light floral hops. In mouth, a smooth malt with grainy malts, light honey and floral hops, not bad, but I prefer the original. 6-3-7-3-12.

Tap at Burger Bar. Pale golden pour with a thick tight head. The nose is fresh and hoppy. Bright orange and grapefruit citrus over a very clean crackery pale malt base. Fresh and crackery with a nice bright malt expression. Really damn tasty.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2011
UPDATED: APR 13, 2011 on tap at the Burger bar. Mild hop aromas. Light orange colour. A nice citrus, hoppy ale, without an assault on the palate. Above average palate. Hits the mark.

jercraigs (7348) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 9, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2011 2011-05-06. Crisp orange amber body with a nice foamy white head and lace. 3+ flavor is pleasantly hoppy, mild green hops and mild resin, modest orange citrus with a citrus oil like twist to it. 7+ aroma is modest but pleasant, orange citrus is entangled with modest resin character. Average palate is a bit light and lightly carbonated, but pretty decent for a cask. Significantly better than previous sample. 7/3/7/3/15 Cask dry-hopped with Simcoe, Burger Bar, Toronto

2011-04-08. Crisp golden orange, nice white head and lace. 3+ interesting hop character. Herbaceous leafy character and very muted citrus kiss. 6+ Flavour has similar green herbaceous hops, floral hints, grassy touches linger in the finish, mild pale malt base but hops are the main event. Lingering leafy notes in the finish. Smooth average palate. Decent but the hop profile is not to my own tastes. Other ratings reference more citrus than I found in it so perhaps I will re-rate this if future samplings are more to my tastes. 7/3/6/3/15 At Volo, Toronto

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 7, 2011
Draught pint at Burger Bar. Mostly clear and bubbly amber-gold with an average and lasting frothy white head (3+). Aroma is bready yet grassy with hint of a delicate treefruit (not apple) - no detectable alcohol. The taste morphs quite a bit - initially sweetroll dough, then reasonably strong but quick-fading grassy-herbal bitterness, then settling to a weak peach-pear sweetness with vague grassy bitterness and once again zero alcohol. Light, almost watery body, a hint of astringency, mild carbonation and a quick, dry finish. I like that this is light and fruity but definitely NOT sweet - frankly my overall score is a little lower because I am rating this on a cold and miserable March day - this is a terrific summer session beer for patio pirchers. *** Re-rated April 5th - hoppier this time, quite good.

Cask at Burger Bar. Dry-Hopped Cask version. Pours a slightly hazy gold with an average size long lasting foamy white head. Aroma is nice and hoppy, lots of resiny hops. Flavour is hoppy with an average length bitter finish. Medium bodied. Great stuff, I hope they can have this on cask year-round.
