4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tapped at Silversmith Brewing Company in Niagara on the
Lake/Ontario/Canada. Aroma of citrus hops, golden and copper color, almost clear. Off white head, stable and kept a good 5mm level. Taste starts with a lot of malt yet quickly turns into bitter hops. Tasty bitter hops finish. Overall refreshing and a very very good pale ale!

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Really nice golden pour with a white head. Strong aroma of gorgeous citrusy hops, exceptionally fresh and natural smelling. Very bitter for such a light bodied beer, this one is purely about hops. A complex bitterness that slowly develops on your tongue, simcoe hops really shine. Dry and fairly light, refreshing and summery.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rating is a weird thing. I always feel like a couple of the criteria are gimmes. Mostly Appearance. What in the world is a bad looking beer? Cloudy? Too dark or light? Not enough head? None of those really. But with Rhyme and Reason poured into my curved Junction English Pint glass this beer looked unbelievable. It was a lovely golden near the edges of the glass, and through the center, an orange. A thin, yet dense white head that was president, literally, topped it off. That’s a five. The beer itself had a nice nose of hops citrus, and a little resin. The taste was hoppy, citrus, resin and floral. Strong but not overwhelming. The malts in the flavours are simple breads and cereal. Nice finish with some hops bitterness. Really good beer. It just made my regular rotation.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a semi-translucent amber. White head with moderate lacing.Aromas of orange, and light pine. Even a bit of butterscotch. Light refreshing mouth feel. Citrus up front with hints of malt on the finish. Some definite sweetness going on in the mix. Some orange peel creeping in there.Billed as an extra pale ale, this would satisfy IPA fans. Great mix of flavor and drinkability. Most sessionable beer I’ve had in a while.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
2014-04-05. Hazy dark orange body, nice frothy white head. 3+ Aroma is pleasantly hoppy, notes of grass, green hops and citrus melange. Flavour is fairly bitter throughout, pleasantly so, moderate citrus throughout, tangerine and grassy dry hops in the finish, bitterness lingers in the aftertaste. 7+ Smooth average plus palate is pretty carbonated, almost just a touch too much so. Quite enjoyable and very quaffable. Bottle

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Juicy citrus fruit evolve into sizeable resinous bitterness within this Pale Ale’s bready malt sweetness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy sheet of foam covers the hazy straw yellow.
-The big yet soft bubbles feel natural.
-The bread-laden residual sugars are a bit too much for my liking in this type of brew.
-Hops are enticing from aroma to finish.
-Drinkability is high.
Bottle. Merci, Luc!

355ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a thin off-white head. The nose is heavy with resinous notes, with grapefruit, and a faint whiff of well, pot. Lighter bodied with big resinous notes up front that follow through to the finish with light malt, an herbal note, heavy mineral notes, and citrus pith.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Supermarket, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma and flavour brings out fresh doughy malts, sweet cereal, and piney hops. Good solid pale, but nothing overly special.
