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.

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.

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.

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.

thorongil2 (1193) - , Ontario, CANADA - JUN 22, 2011
(bottle) clear medium amber colour with small white head; aromas of candy, fruit; flavour is a letdown after the aroma - simple, mineral/ashy; with long medium bitter/mineral finish

fullers (252) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 14, 2010
Bottle OCB Sample pack. Pours clear golden amber with thin white head. Floral hop aroma. Light bodied, quite smooth. Restrained bitterness in taste. Not a fan of this beer style, but this more acceptable than most.

RC8 (305) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 3, 2010
A proper pale ale. Nice bitterness and balanced malt. Refreshing but not overly light. Very solid brew, this would do the trick for me very often.

Ontbeertaster (2335) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 21, 2010
Quite nice actually, it is very smooth, light bitterness and overall it has a very flavourful taste. I would purchase this again

PictouRx (142) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2010
This beer poured a medium brown color, smaller head, aroma is very floral. Beer has a smooth texture to it. This has some hoppiness to it but trails off, needs a little more. Only 5% so I can drink a few and be content, vs some higher ABV hoppy beers I have had.

Le liquide est doré et sa tête mousseuse est blanche. Une faible rétention est observée. Quelques traces restent collées au verre. Au nez, notes herbeuses et végétales avec la présence d’un malt doux. On croirait même, une fois les yeux fermés, à quelques effluves grillés. Le goût est correct, plus malté qu’houblonné, avec une amertume qu’on aurait voulu un tantinet plus mordante, voire plus efficace. Ceci dit, en bouche, le liquide est de densité moyennement faible avec une effervescence appropriée et une texture douce. Arrière-goût de céréales avec des notes amères timides. En résumé, bière honnête et très rafraîchissante.
