3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I think they have a real loser here. Kind of a typical pale with a touch of lemon. Nothing to write home about, but I appreciated the refreshment factor.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours copper with an off-white head with decent lacing. The aroma is on the maltier side for a pale ale, unfolding notes of caramel and roast, while the hops contribute resin and fruitier aspects which are rather short-lived. The flavor follows the nose closely: caramelly and rather roasty for a pale ale up front, followed by resin and citrus peel on the mid-palate before a profound bitterness and warmth from the alcohol kick in to make up the long, dry finish. Decent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle pours cloudy amber with a thin cream head. Smells of orange and booze and faintly pine too. Tastes fruit sweet with a mildly bready malt note and a complex but mild juniper-spice-hop twang on the finish. Carbonation and body are average with an acidic finish. Surprisingly complex pale ale... hopefully it remains so after the AB buyout.

33 cl bottle, Calgary, AB, Cnada via Zyn. Hazy amber gold. Nice caramel orange citrus aroma with some honey. Mildly carbonated, sweet, then a nice brown sugar honey flavour that transitions to an herbal hop finish.
