Can. Dark amber. Nice head and lacing. Quiet scent. Rich body. Woody taste with nice hops and a hint of soapiness. More Brittish perhaps than American. A nice drinker waiting for Spring on the deck.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2013 2013-06-09. Crisp orange body large fluffy white head and lace. 3++
Aroma is pleasantly hoppy, modest citrus, light leafy notes. Flavour is pleasant hoppy, muddled citrus, orange peel touches. Average bodied palate, pleasant carbonation. Very enjoyable, pleasantly hoppy pale ale. 7/4/7/3/15-16 - 3.6 Can from LCBO.
2010-01-23. Crisp orange amber body with a modest white head. 3+ Pleasant bitterness throughout, modest hops and resin are pleasant but less assertive than my preference. 6+ Mild aroma, light hops with mild resin and muted citrus. Average palate is on the light side. Okay, but too mild for my tastes but pleasant. 6/3/6/3/13 - 3.1 Can at Volo, Toronto

12oz can. Medium off-white head that mostly dissipates atop crystal clear amber body. Aroma is moderately sweet, orange, light lime. Taste is medium sweet, orange, some bread/caramel, light lime. Light-medium body. Perfectly decent APA, in a generic sort of way.

Pours pale gold into a shaker. Fizzy white head recedes to nothing. Sweet cookie and caramel. Bread upfront turning to a bitter hop finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Nice lacing on the pour. Straight forward malty, corny aroma with a cornbread backstop. Mild hopping lurks beneath. More prevalent in the flavor, the hops lend a nice contrast to a well developed, dry, bready maltiness. Not too bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Good two-finger head. Leaves an initial ring of lace. Light amber color and crystal clear.
Slightly toasted malt aroma. Good balancing hop that makes for an overall attractive smell.
The only detraction I can fin is the below average body. Otherwise, this is a solid pale ale offering. Good pale malt flavors without any raw grain flavors. The hop is judicious, not overwhelming. The aftertaste is lasts without being a bitter bomb. A good day-by-day pale ale.
