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.

341ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a finger and a half of white head that retains well and leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is quite mild considering all the ingredients claimed. Taste is only slightly better than a typical lager. I did not find this brew to be of high quality and did not enjoy the taste. Disappointing.

From notes. At C’est What. Pours a nice orange colour with a small head. Aroma is piney with notes of grapefuit, and some sweet malts. Flavour is slight sweet malts and a nice lingering hop bitter. Nice sessionable beer.

A little hops, some character in a lemony sense, or at least some kind of citrus. Decent, even a little more interesting than your average pale ale. Had a sample of this at a stand in the lcbo. Worth finding again.

kevinsenn (979) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - APR 1, 2012
Bottle from brewery. Clear and golden with a big head. Slightly yeast aroma with English hops. Slight caramel taste with some English hops and some actual IBUs in there. Decent stuff.

rejtable (1140) - Ontario, CANADA - FEB 3, 2012
Really nice basic drinker. Up front lots of grass and straw, backed with some breaded sweetness, and a hint of a hoppy bitter finish with some limited citrus presence. Nothing wrong with this at all, great standby beer.

Johnsense (701) - - JAN 29, 2012
Golden pour, 2 fingers of head. Aroma of grapefruit and bready malt - a bit of grass as well. Some citrus up front, a bit of pine, malt, bready, some toffee, fairly bitter. Average mouthfeel, ok carbonation. A fairly good sessioner when it’s fresh.

PatIrish (168) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2012
In regards to Pale Ale, this one just doesn’t suit my palate. Looks great on the pour from the tap. Nice healthy white head, aroma caries nutty hops and bitter wood. Tastes malty and bitter rather than hoppy and citrus. A middle of the road Pale.

lukin (412) - Ontario, CANADA - SEP 3, 2011
bottle. Golden colour, medium fluffy head. Aroma of nutty malt, wood, butter. Taste is smooth with moderate amount of bitter. Decent beer, would buy again, but nothing special.

UM02 (294) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2011
Malty tasting pale ale with a moderate amount of bitterness. I can not say I really enjoy either the taste of the malt or the taste of the hops used. One of those beers that smells better than it tastes. An OK APA but slightly below average for this style in my opinion.

Cannette 500 ml. 5%. Couleur jaune foncé, mousse blanche. Arôme de malt caramel et céréales. Gout d’alcool, malt et un peu de caramel. Finale avec des notes d’alcool et un peu de houblon.
