On Tap at the Brewery
Amarillo Hopping makes its presence well known in this deep amber Pale Ale. Small head continually refreshed all the way to the bottom of the pint. Crystal malts gives a middle sweetish point, but this beer is really bracketed by the orangey citrusy hops that start and finish on the palate.

Finally getting around to rating this. Poured into a shaker, deep orange in colour with a bright head that lasts and gives good lacing. Aromas of citrus, bitter hops and a slight maltiness. Taste is bitter-sweet, leaning strongly to the bitter side. Finishes clean and crisp with just enough lingering bitterness. This is a constant in my beer fridge, I could drink this all day long. Really good, emminently sessionable beer.

One of the best looking beers I’ve seen in a while, very stable head, creamy, red glowing. This translates to a great smooth body, mouth feel that is so creamy it’s almost not a pale ale any more. Certainly not pale are the used malts, rather biscuit, toasty and caramel. Very nice indeed. Hop aroma is perhaps somewhat dimmed, helped by the darker hop varieties used which are piney rather than floral, but the taste gets back with a lovely bitterness and long dry ending. Prototypical American fermentation, great and not (too) clean as it’s far from boring. I really enjoyed this beer, very well made and great recipe. Not necessarily extreme, but super smooth and tasty. Yum! (Bottle from Saveur Bière)

Gift bottle, LCBO or Beer Store. Small head, nice copper colour. Nice and hoppy, but not overwhelmingly so. Hint of caramel. Feels good on the back of the tongue. Just a nice beer, want more.

It’s so refreshing to finally find a Canadian, nay Ontario beer that is a smooth hoppy ale. Pours a golden brown with a retaining white head. Aroma is hop and caramel. Taste is a great swell of hop bitterness that is smooth with toffee/caramel aftertastes. So well balanced, this will be a staple in my fridge.
