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.

Bottled three days ago, bought from LCBO. Nose explodes great mix of citrus and piney aromas, especially as this warms this smells really resiny. Some spice in the nose as well. Looks a hazy copper/orange color, hard to see through this one. Taste upfront shows off some fruity tropical flavors, pine in the middle and a spicy/bitter finish. The finish could be smoother, this is my first rye pale ale so I don’t have much to compare it against. The hop character is great though. Medium bodied and average carbonation.

Aroma is caramel, slightly roasted and sweet malts. Taste is sweet malts with a smooth roastiness and nice mouth feel paired fairly nicely. Its interesting as the sweet classical ale which transforms into a nice floral, earthy hop profile that finishes smoothly. A good effort.

Cameron’s RPA was the second Rye Pale Ale I tried and this is the beer that really sold me on the style. It poured a rich bronze with a rich lacy head. I smelled the hops instantly - orange and grapefruit again - with a nice malt base that was both sweet and earthy. Bitter finish. Really good.

Tasted at Willow Park Beer Bash 2014. Unfortunately, there was no time for detailed notes - and I only made it through half my list even so!

worldbeertaste (1690) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2014
Hazy dark orange with a white creamy lacy lasting head. The fresh tropical fruit smell comes right out of the bottle. Under the fruit there is a nice layer of grain and caramel. Sweet fruity taste with leaves and grain with a bitter hoppy finish. Fresh and bitter and well bananced between the sweet and fruity and bitter hoppy.

Bottle to half-pint glass (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good for the style; a mostly transparent burnt orange with foamy off-white head. Smells of bitter and floral hops with notes of rye spice and a medium-bodied bittersweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a nice rye tingle. A good example of the style.

HippyHop (255) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 23, 2014
Wasn’t expecting much of this with its ugly, dated label, but man is this good. Nice colour with a bit of head that disappears faster than my courage in high school. Nose is all flowers and lemon, with a bit of spicy malt hiding in the background. Taste is a solid rye malt with a big hit of flowers and pink grapefruit. Finish is moderately dry. Damn good stuff

lesifflebiere (1349) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 4, 2014
Orangée, plutôt trouble, avec un peu de mousse blanche sur le rebord. Le nez est en houblons agrumés, en fruits jaunes et en sucre cuit. Amertume importante en bouche, presque piquante en fin de gorgée, et très persistante. Pendant ce temps, le seigle est présent mais discret, et la rondeur relative des malts est complètement dominée par l’astringence des houblons. Une bombe d’IBUs sans aucun doute, et sacrément savoureuse bière d’un bout à l’autre.

It smells American whatever that means. Certainly a strong brew, with a little hippity hop. Maybe De La Soul would enjoy this brew. I find the aftertaste has characteristics of pink grapefruit. I say that in a good way. I can't tell what it smells like . . . a beer? My senses need to pump up the jam a little bit. It's somewhat cloudy in appearance, lots o' lil bubbles racing to the top to form a quality head. One of these 650 ml bottles is good for me. A good brew though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
