A robust and flavourful ale, with the aromas of Goldings and Pacific Gem hops and a firm, malty body with an exceptionally clean finish. This ale is very similar to a Northern bitter in balance and palate. The name comes from the time when the English settlers lived mostly in Dublin, in an area called "The Pale". The area outside the Pale was where the Irish lived... hence the phrase "beyond the pale".

Draught at Agro Café, Granville Island
Hazy amber color; creamy head, a thin layer is very persistent. Light caramel and apple aroma, then light malt; simple. The flavor is better: malt, caramel and toffee in equal proportions, strong bitterness, with final toastiness; maybe a bit too dry and bitter at the end.. Quite good.

Pours a cloudy orange-yellow with a nice head & some lacing. I could hardly detect an aroma. Taste is full of hops! Sourish and wheaty notes, as well. Body is thick and creamy, overall I thought it was very interesting and I liked the opping. Not bad! Sampled at the GCBF.

GCBF cask conditioned sample. (named Insurrection at GCBF) Dark cloudy pale beer. Strong grapefruit nose. Grapefruit flavour is not as strong as the aroma.

frink (467) - coquitlam, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 22, 2005
Copper coloured beer with a thin white head.Mild hops in the nose. The taste was a decent balance of malt and bitter hops. A pretty straightforward pint.

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 29, 2004
Chill hazed rich copper-coloured beer with a large creamy off-white head. Aroma is very malty and also shows nice lemon citrus notes and faint fruit/berry esters as well. Very well-hopped showing nice spicy character. Flavour is also quite citrusy and malty with a lasting bitterness. Well-balanced brew.

Body is dark amber with a creamy, off-white head. Good lacing. Aroma was moderately malty with a noticeable herbal and earthy smell. Flavour was a nice balance of hops, and malts with a long bitter finish. Texture was medium and dry with soft carbonation. An enjoyable bitter.

Oakes (15651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2001
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2005 Hazy amber colour with rocky, slightly caramel-coloured head. Very toasty - slightly astringent actually - body. Slightly nutty. Body sort of thin - sadly, a one-dimensional beer, very dry and dusty.
