COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our flagship beer. Medium body, beautiful golden colour, good mouth feel and a refreshing hop finish. We use six selected malts and five different kinds of premium hops. This recipe is secret, but the Pale Ale is very tasty and hoppy.

Ferris (3082) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 26, 2014
Bottle - Smells of pale malts and some a weird off note. Clear copper with a nice head. Grains and light earthy bittering hops. Although something odd in the nose, is tastes just fine for an English style pale ale. Doesn’t quite have the oomph required for an APA.

An above average pale ale. Refreshing and goes down easy so great for cottage weekends when you’re drinking all day.

Canmoore (242) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2014
Pours clear and golden, with a very thin head. Aroma notes include apple, caramel, lightly roasted malts. Tasting notes include apple, caramel, and a bitter finish. This is a very drinkable beer, nice!

Metalchopz (2216) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 13, 2014
Finally get a chance to try this one (as I forgot to pick it up all these years). Bomber from the LCBO. Pours a slight hazy golden-amber colour with a frothy warm cap, good retention and creamy-foam lacing. Sweet malty nose with hints of honey at first, but the toasty caramel malts and biscuit come out giving hints of butterscotch. Not much hop in the aromas, but found in the taste covering the milder malts. This gives the wet mouthfeel a little dryness. Refreshing flagship beer, but a little light for today’s Pale Ale standards. More malty than hoppy.

jksipa (293) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle from the Beer Store. Pours a cloudy pale orange with a big white head. Nose is toasted malts, biscuit some very light citrus notes. Sweet malt start and subdued caramel and citrus. Only minor bitterness. Medium body with average carbonation. Needs a little more character.

shaynsawchuk (435) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 19, 2014
650 mL bottle. Pours an orange tinged gold with a lacy white head. Biscuit, toasty grain, caramel, beeswax, citrus peel and a touch of woodiness. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Mildly sweet all over, a nice bit of bittering hops and a sticky finish. Good sessionable beer.

Nice coppery color with good clarity. Odd aroma that I could not figure out. Flavor was muted and overall pretty unremarkable. Probably won’t do this again.

Freaky_tiki (485) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 31, 2014
Pours the colour of treated lumber with a thin picket fence white cap. Pretty unremarkable: muted aroma, subdued malts & hops, & a slightly disconcerting coppery after taste.

sudomorph (517) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 22, 2014
650ml bottle from the lcbo. Pours a clear, copper/gold colour with a one finger, off-white head. Aroma smells faintly of grain, caramel, citrus, and slight floral hops. Taste is slightly on the bitter side. Slight citrus, pine/resin, and caramel with a short, hoppy/bitter finish. Medium body and carbonation. Slightly oily texture but also refreshing. Overall pretty good. Very drinkable with lots of flavour. Would probably buy again when I’m in the mood.
