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.

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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.
