COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cameron’s Rye Pale Ale has a combination of five malts and seven hop varieties. The coalition of floral British and pungent American hops is well supported by a full malt body with a massive amount of rye.

Gold medalist, Ontario Brewing Awards

fiulijn (14340) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle from Darby’s Liquor Store, Vancouver, 6.6% ABV
Cloudy amber color with compact head. Very nice aroma of fruity and resiny hops, and later earthy caramel. Good body strength: it has a strong caramel and toffee flavor, with extreme bitterness, a peppery note from the rye, rich of resiny hops, and bitter orange oils.
Powerful, very good.

Lubiere (9765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2012
A reddish copper ale with a thin creamy mocha head. In aroma, a smooth piney floral hops, citrus notes, biscuit malt, light catnip notes. In mouth, a nice resinous hops, grassy and herbal, with caramel malt, pink grapefruits notes, light roasted notes, oily mouthfeel, very nice. On tap at Wellington Gastropub, April 19, 2012.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2013 Nice hoppy beer. Light golden with enormous foamy white head. Hoppy and spicy aroma.Very good drinkability, with a spicy good bitterness. This one hits the bullseye. Had with a Radler, grapefruit juice added, nice.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 14, 2012
Tap at The Only Cafe. Pale amber-gold with a thick moussey head. The aroma is great - fresh pine and grapefruit with a touch of soft spiciness in the back. Aggressively hopped with a ton of fresh dank hoppiness over a lean pale malt/rye malt. Damn - I was not expecting this but now that I found it, I want more. Rich fresh hops. This reminds me if Bear Republics Hop Rod Rye mixed with Racer 5 (a combo I used to make when I had a steady free supply I both). Colour me impressed Cameron’s!

jercraigs (7638) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 25, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2012 2012-06-30. Did not take notes but this was much fruitier, hoppier and generally more robust than the last time I tried it. Had a couple of pints. +2 overall. On tap at Betty’s, Toronto

2012-04-21. Lightly hazy dark amber, near headless body. Modest aroma needs some coaxing, mild malt and hops. 7+ Similar flavour, modest malt character, mild bitterness up front starts low and grows steadily towards the finish, modest resin, lightly leafy hops. It is a bit mild up front but I like it. Average to medium bodied palate is lightly carbonated, but has one of the better palates of the day. 3+ Looking forward to trying this one on tap. Blind Tasting on Cask at Volo IPA Challenge

Bottle, shared at game night. Bright orange, hazy. Very hoppy nose, white grapefruit, light pine. Hoppy palate, more pine, lovely rye character, spicy and bitter. The best Cameron’s beer I’ve had by far!

Radek Kliber (6373) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 30, 2012
On tap at Volo
Aroma: high citruss hop notes , clean with slightly grainy (rye) malty behind. Very smooth. 8-
Apperance: hazed amber-red with plus sized creamy white top. Good lace. Look at those rings on glass! 4+
Taste/Palate etc. Medium bodied , fairly dry for rye based ale. Medium carbonation. Full sided and long finish. Crisp hop character. Softness of rye blended with good dose of hops do wonders here. Quiet impressive stuff.

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2012
April 7, 2012 - on draught at Volo (had three of these!!). Slightly hazy copper with a solid sticky-looking tan creamy head, thick lacing. Smells wonderful - like a lush tropical fruit/citrus west coast pale ale/ipa, with some cereal grain to it, hardly any alcohol ... balanced. Taste - initially a huge whack of grainy bitterness, must be the rye (tastes "red") - sharp, pungent, acidic, the aroma is quite different, as there is not as much fruity/citrus bitterness here, just grain and sharp bitterness .. a bit more alcohol too (also not quite as balanced as the aroma, but still very moreish). Chewy mouthfeel, solid body, the rye makes it seem very astringent, nice carbonation, and a long pungent top/back palate bitter finish, not boozy, and really easy to drink - and SCORE! they are bottling this now!

mcberko (6017) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 23, 2013
22 oz. bottle, sent from wilco (thanks a lot, Mike), pours a cloudy bright orange with a small off-white head. Aroma of rye upfront, followed by some crystal malt, and subdued hops. Flavour brings out loads of rye upfront, followed by a mix of different hops, and some crisp biscuity malt. Very dominated by the rye, leaving a long astringency. Not the easiest to drink, but well-made.

blankboy (5970) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 18, 2012
Draught at Betty’s. Pours a cloudy copper-orange with a small lasting frothy off-white head. Decent lacing. Big hop aroma with resiny/fruity/citrusy hops mainly along with some malt in the background. Lovely hoppy flavour, resiny and citrusy hops, along with rye malt, citrusy fruit and a big bitter finish. Medium bodied. Holy shit, Camerons? Wow. Congrats on your best beer yet, keep it up. -- Rated via Beer Buddy.
