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.

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 (642) - 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 (711) - 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.

Hammy78 (778) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2013
Picked up at the Ancaster beer store. Pours an almost clear copper, white head that dies to a thick ring, some minor lace. Nose is malt, really smells like wort. Tastes sweet and bitter.

Tasted at a pub by the bottle. Was actually not a bad beer. Interesting Pale Ale with enjoyable taste. Good for session beer.

patricks110 (1776) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 11, 2012
Actually not too shabby at all, light citrus hop notes, toasted malts and a great balanaced sessionable character. The pour is rather bland and boring looking though with a clear golden body and a thick white head that foams down quick. overall, just an okay brew.

reebtogi (4388) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 26, 2012
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.

AGAquino (662) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 18, 2012
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.

solidfunk (4489) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - APR 7, 2012
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 (1144) - 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.
