beautiful English pale. The story here is malts, in abundance that are incredible for the ABV. Toasty and flavorful.

Beer Snob (501) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 4, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2005 A really nice surpirse. Dark/golden ale with a sweet, floral and malt aroma. Really mouthwatering. The taste doesn’t disappoint. A few citrus notes mixed in with a nice dose of hops. Great aftertaste - some bitterness and very refreshing. Already stocked up - that’s how much I ike this ale. This ale is going to be a standard choice of mine.

JesseM (1151) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 17, 2008 341ml bottle from the beer store. I was really pleased to see the date of packaging was only a month ago, which for my beer store (Bleams Rd. Kitchener) is practically fresh from the brewery (on some other boxes there’s still some best before dates of 2007). Pours a nice golden amber colour with a rich, off white head (great lace as you drink), and moderate effervescence. Aroma is of nice toffee malts, a little grainy, and defined by decent hop character. Flavour is more of the same with a bit more going on, great refeshing malts accompanied by just the right amount of hop presence. Nice, slightly slick mouth-feel, surprising for something as light and drinkable as this. This is a great summer session brew if you’re looking for something other than a good pilsener. I really wish more beers from this brewery were available in my area!

Unassuming bottle and beer. Light aroma. Average looking but a beautiful flavourful mix of hops, malt and bitterness. An excellent beer. Thanks to Mr_Kimchee for the exchange.

Maltybones (62) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 12, 2008
A gem in Ontario brewing. Appearance is a light amber body with white froth on top. Crystal clear with low-to-medium carbonation. Citrus, a little pine and a good amount of sweetness are all well balanced in the aroma. Flavour has sweet, sweet malts, grapefuit and grains all mixing together, finishing with a great hop kick. Slick mouthfeel perfect for style. Much more of a Wesrt Coast Pale Ale than an English Pale Ale. Super.

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2003
Deliciously enticing smoked toffee apples bathing in butter pools...The lusciously thick aroma is betrayed though by the thinner-than-announced mouthfeel...The tranquilizing citrusy hops mingle with caramel and peach syrup to create great sweet/bitter, assertive/subtle equilibriums...I think I'll go smell the bottle a bit...Hurray for CapFlu!...

Illuminatus (92) - Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 16, 2008
341mL bottle from the Beer Store. Six-pack packaged on April 4th, 2008. Pours orange amber with a fluffy, cream-coloured head. Aroma is of sweet malt and a touch of floral hop. Flavour is of toffee-like caramel malts, a mild, grassy bitterness from the hops, and a full, moderately carbonated mouthfeel. Very tasty and refreshing.

lesifflebiere (1271) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 2, 2014
Bière orangée, cristalline de par sa parfaite limpidité, et semblant mi-mince. Nez en houblons doux et fruités, et en malts caramel. La bouche est savoureuse et ronde mais sans être réellement complexe ; la buvabilité est haute, et si la signature est assez classique, elle est diablement efficace et bien effectuée. Saveurs de fruits tropicaux, de sucre d’orge, et complétées par une petite amertume. Pour un breuvage qui ne ressort pas tellement du lot, Durham peut se vanter d’avoir perfectionné le style.

better on cask than in the bottle, but the bottle isn’t bad either. very fruity malt, and hoppy enough. I was addicted to this at one point.
